At Bluebonnet Lake

From Goodreads:

Marketing maven Kate Sherwood’s world is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing. The last thing she wants to do is slow down to a crawl at Rainbow’s End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. But she cannot deny her ailing grandmother’s request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week (albeit fifty years ago). There Kate meets Greg Vange, the resort’s handyman. But there’s more to Greg than meets the eye–billions more, in fact, as he recently sold his successful software company and is at the resort in search of what’s next for his life. Kate isn’t looking for romance, but she can’t deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. She even starts to see potential in the rundown resort. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate’s long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?


 Cafe Lily's Review:

I found this book to be easily predictable, yet it was lighthearted and sweet.  The characters were cute and entertaining.  The storyline isn't as deep and interesting as the historical fiction I usually read, but if you want a clean love story, this is a decent choice.  With the book being set in Texas, I think I was expecting a little more in the way of cowboys, ranches, and so forth.  I was also a little confused about why Kate referred to her grandmother as Sally. That struck me as odd, considering that Kate was raised by her grandmother. It just didn't seem respectful.

Overall, the theme of the book is about taking one day at a time, and breaking away to enjoy the little things. Life changes unexpectedly and love can take you by surprise, no matter what age you are.
