At Bluebonnet Lake (Texas Crossroads Book #1)

Purchase At Bluebonnet Lake at AMAZON. 

At Bluebonnet Lake is a gentle flowing story about Kate Sherwood, a city girl in a fast-paced job, who visits a rustic (and rundown) resort with her grandmother. She not only faces the prospect of love, but she finds herself as well.

Rainbow’s End, though a ramshackle country resort, holds a unique charm, just as the patrons staying there. The amenities are quaint, and definitely behind the times, with sketchy Internet and phone signals, but that might just be what these people need. Get away from the hustle and bustle and experience what really matters in life.

To be honest, the beginning moved a little slowly and it took me a bit to get totally immersed, but ultimately, I enjoyed the story and the nostalgic presence residing throughout. I wasn’t particularly drawn to Kate at first, but she grew on me as the story progressed. Her personality seemed a little mismatched for her business paced job, making her a tad unbelievable, but that aside, she was easy to relate to and ultimately I grew to like her. I loved Kate’s grandmother, Sally. But what warmed my heart most was the simplistic romance between Kate and Greg.

If you like contemporary sweet romances without over-the-top drama, this is a good choice. A heart-warming, nostalgic story of becoming who you’re meant to be, slowing down, and enjoying life to the fullest.
