So when her beloved grandmother decides they both need an extended vacation, she is not sure she is prepared for the slow pace of Dupree, Texas.

Greg may be charming, cute, and kind, but he is hiding a few secrets of his own and running from a several unresolved issues from his past. As the two spend more time together, they realize that their lives may have been very different, but the circumstances that brought them together only serve to allow them to better understand each other. Rainbow’s End Resort, despite its untidy appearance, may have a way of changing both of their lives for the better.
At Bluebonnet Lake is a sweet, simple Christian romance. Several characters may be endearing, but the storyline is rather predictable, leaving little suspense to the novel. The plot also moves very slowly as many portions of the book contain unnecessary explanations and drawn-out points. However, there are subtle Christian references and the author does a nice job of setting the stage for future books in the series as she introduces a few key characters. Overall, the story was nice but certainly not one that cannot be set aside for a more engaging book. Its themes and uncomplicated storyline make this book one that will be readable without much effort. This novel is recommended for those who enjoy Christian romances and would like a story that is simplistic and pleasant.
