At Bluebonnet Lake by Amanda Cabot

At Bluebonnet Lake (Texas Crossroads, #1)Book Description:
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?

My Thoughts:
Sweet romance.  Kate is used to life at a bit of a faster pace than Rainbow's End allows.  She is there for a month with her grandmother, Sally.  The place looks nothing like her grandmother's description from years earlier, but the slower life may be what she needs.  Greg is the handyman around Rainbow's End and is more than meets the eye.  Neither is looking for romance, but that may be exactly what they find. 
I liked that Kate was forced away from the internet and cell service that we get so used to.  Living life at a slower pace seemed to be calming and what she needed.  Greg has plenty he is dealing with and isn't just a handyman.  Like so many people do, he is searching for answers.  I enjoyed the sweet attraction between the two of them.  I also liked Sally, she was a great addition to the book!
It is a 4/5 for me.  It is a straight forward Texas romance.
