Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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 Review:
This is the first book that I have read of Amanda Cabot and after this book I will continue to follow her, she is such a wonderful writer, she creates her characters that stay with you for a very long time after you have finished reading about them. I felt as if I was in the pages with Kate and Greg (who are our main characters). They are both at a crossroads in their lives just like the rest of us when we get to that point in our lives. Kate’s journey to Rainbow’s End it is the resort she is visiting with her grandmother, was just what both she and Greg needed. Their attraction to each other is immediate and very constant and you will rooting them on from the sidelines from the very first page turner.

Rainbow’s End was a very exciting place for me and I’m sure for everyone else who read the book to venture in the short amount of time reading the book. Kate is not the biggest fan of Rainbow’s End when she first arrives with her grandmother, but she is soon going to realises that she is on journey and was headed down the wrong path until her trip there. I liked watching Kate but most of all coming to realise how much her own life had changed, the main characters soon found how much of a connection they did truly share. There attraction and romance is not rushed or even forced but I can really appreciate that from all authors.

My Rating:
