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?

Amanda Cabot invites readers to step away from the pressures of the daily grind. They might be surprised by what they find at Rainbow's End.

My take on this book:
When I think of Amanda Cabot I think historical fiction, so I wasn't sure how a contemporary romance offering might be, but no worries the story was great, and leaves me anticipating the next book in the series!

There were so many things to like with this series, but I think the small town setting was one of the major factors for me. It was an easy place to imagine and connect with. The vivid descriptions easily allowed me to imagine not only the resort but the area surrounding it. If good inspirational romance is what you enjoy then this book certainly fits the bill. There are actually two romances going on, we have Greg and Kate, but there is also love blooming between Kate's grandmother Sally and Roy. It's nice to see how things progress when there are two distinctly different age groups finding love. Overall, a wonderful contemporary read that is filled with faith, and romance and characters that I came to know and enjoy.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.

  1. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my book. I'm absolutely delighted that you enjoyed it and are looking forward to the next book in the series. Lauren, Fiona and of course Carmen and her wonderful food will be back in In Firefly Valley along with some new characters, including a writer with writer's block. Wonder how I came up with him?
