Title: At Bluebonnet Lake: A Novel (Texas Crossroads)
Author: Amanda Cabot
Publisher: Revell (October 21, 2014)
Pages: 384

As soon as I saw the cover of AT BLUEBONNET LAKE by AMANDA CABOT, there was no question in my mind. I had to have it. The combination of being a fan of books with cowboys in it, and AMANDA CABOT’S writing, is what made it a no-brainier. 

Kate Sherwood’s life is nothing less than fast-paced. When she adventures with her grandmother to Rainbow’s End, a place that is slow-paced, and way behind the times -so not Kate - she has to wonder how she will survive an entire month there.

Greg Vange, the resorts handyman, is not who he appears to be. Not even close. Not that he has any plans of filling the pretty and intriguing Kate in on that tidbit.

Once again, AMANDA CABOT has done a good job in constructing a fine story. I have to admit, her series WESTWARD WINDS remains my favorite thus far. Each book in the series became better and better, with amazing plots, characters, and magnificent writing.

Title: Tina Radcliffe
Author: Stranded with the Rancher
Publisher: Love Inspired (August 19, 2014)
Pages: 224

My first read by TINA RADCLIFFE was The Rancher's Reunion. The beginning remains one of my all time favorites. Of course, that put me on the path to seeking other books by the author. Stories involving a cowboy are without a doubt my favorites. When I spotted STRANDED WITH THE RANCHER by MS RADCLIFFE, I knew I’d be purchasing and reading it.

Beth Rogers has a plan. A carefully thought-out plan. One she had no intentions of altering. However, it seems God has a different plan altogether.

Dan Gallagher finds himself helping a friends, relative. A rather pretty relative if he was so inclined to admit. What he thought would be a ride to the airport, turns into something so much more.

If you are searching for a book with high peaks, and lots of action, STRANDED WITH THE RANCHER is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for an amazing, unique, heartwarming story, mixed with some old fashion chivalry, STRANDED WITH THE RANCHER is the book for you.

I didn’t rush through this book. Oh no, I took my time. Time to absorb each and every word. STRANDED WITH THE RANCHER is not your typical, predictable Love Inspired romance. MS RADCLIFFE is a magnificent writer. I was blown away with her great lines. She had me smiling and in awe, so many times throughout the entire story. Both the main and secondary characters were memorable. I thought I knew how the ending would unfold, but I was wrong. MS RADCLIFFE took the expected and flipped it to the unexpected. I loved every ounce of it.

I can only hope that there is another in the works about a certain someone’s brother. Please, oh please, tell me my thoughts are correct.
