AT BLUEBONNET LAKE by Amanda Cabot




Amanda Cabot is the bestselling author of the Texas Dreams series, the Westward Winds series, and Christmas Roses. Her books have been finalists for the ACFW Carol Awards and the Booksellers’ Best. She lives in Wyoming. Learn more at www.amandacabot.com.







From the book’s back cover:

Her life is set to warp speed. His is slowing to a crawl. But love has its own timing.



At Bluebonnet Lake
Marketing maven Kate Sherwood’s world is fast-paced, challenging, and always changing. The last thing she wants to do is grind to a halt at Rainbow’s End, a dilapidated resort in the Texas Hill Country. Still, she cannot deny her ailing grandmother’s request to visit the place where she and her deceased husband spent one glorious week fifty years ago. There, Kate meets Greg, who appears to be the resort’s unassuming handyman. But there’s more to Greg than meets the eye—billions more, in fact.



Kate isn’t looking for romance, but she can’t deny the sparks of attraction that fly every time she and Greg are together. Could there be a future there? Or will Kate’s long-sought promotion take her back to the big city?



Amanda Cabot invites you to step into a place away from the pressures of the day. You might be surprised by what you find at Rainbow’s End.



From Jo:

I’ve never read a book by Amanda Cabot that I didn’t like. She is a master at characterization and her settings come to life through her vivid descriptions. This story of Kate’s journey toward transformation will hold your interest. Good beginning to the Texas Crossroads series.

She is the founder of the influential literary site Novel Rocket, regularly named one of Writer’s Digest top sites for writers. Gina lives with her husband and children in southern Virginia.

From the book’s back cover:

He made himself an island until something unexpected washed ashore.



Driftwood Tides
When Holton lost his wife, Adele, in a horrific accident, he shut himself off from the world, living a life of seclusion, making driftwood sculptures and drowning his pain in gin. Until twenty-three-year-old Libby knocks on his door, asking for a job and claiming to be a friend of his late wife. When he discovers Libby is actually Adele’s illegitimate daughter, given up for adoption without his knowledge, his life is turned upside down as he struggles to accept that the wife he’d considered a saint was not the woman he thought he knew.


Together Holton and Libby form an unlikely bond as the two struggle to learn the identity of Libby’s father and the truth about Adele, themselves, and each other.


From Jo:


Libby Slater wades through one problem after another on her search for truth. I love the way Gina Holmes weaves the continual layers of characters that affect Libby’s opinions of situations and of herself. Setting is so much a part of this story, you can feel the ocean breeze on your face and feel the sand beneath your feet. Interesting and insightful.

From the book’s back cover:



Two hearts are about to learn the rhythm of love.



In Perfect Time
Bold, sophisticated, and coy. Army Air Force flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson collects hearts wherever she flies, leaving men pining in airfields all across Europe. So how can ruggedly handsome C-47 pilot Lt. Roger Cooper be all but immune to her considerable charms? In fact, he seems to do everything he can to avoid her.



Still, as they cross the skies between Italy and southern France, evacuating the wounded and delivering paratroopers and supplies, every beat of their hearts draws them closer. Can they overcome the fears and misunderstandings of the past in order to take hold of the future?



Sarah Sundin seamlessly weaves together emotion, action, and sweet romance into a tale that transcends time and calls us to believe in the power of love.



From Jo:



Sarah Sundin is a superb storyteller. In this novel she writes about a sweet romance between flight nurse Lt. Kay Jobson and pilot Lt. Roger Cooper during World War II. Even though Kay has every other military man yearning for her, Roger resists her—outwardly. Both Kay and Roger have lingering hurts from the past and have difficulty believing they deserve each other. Misunderstandings and the risks of war pull them apart yet push them together. The reader will want to find out if Kay and Roger get past their secrets with like minds about their relationship.
