At Bluebonnet Lake is the first in Amanda Cabot”s Texas Crossroads series. It is easily described as contemporary romantic fiction written with the lovely state of Texas as its backdrop. In fact, I love to read books that take place in Texas. It is why I chose to read this particular title!
In this novel, overworked Kate Sherwood agrees to travel to Texas to allow her grandmother to revisit a memory. Soon after arriving at Rainbow’s End, Kate is no longer distracted by work, but by a handsome stranger named Greg. As a bonus, Cabot writes in a second romantic side story in Kate’s grandmother Sally and a local man who has experienced the loss of his dear wife.
To be honest, this was not my favorite read this year. I felt like it was a bit long-winded and some thought processes of the characters were over explained. If you enjoy location driven fiction with a delicate love story, this is likely a novel you will appreciate. Further, Cabot is picking up the story line in the next title in the series with characters you meet in this book. I am typically found of books that are tied together in location and related characters.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its author and publisher in exchange for an honest review. I have not been compensated and all opinions are my own.
