At Bluebonnet Lake (Texas Crossroads #1) by Amanda Cabot

Kate is taking her grandmother on vacation.  Sally has a heart condition and Kate's always working, so they are going to make the most of it and take a month off together.  They're going back to where Kate's grandparents had spent their honeymoon...

Revell and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 21st, so make a note to pick it up then.

This is a sweet story of old fashioned romance and two young workoholics.  Kate meets Greg and likes him a lot, but she's not looking for love.  She's just vacationing for a bit with her grandmother because who knows how much time she has left.  She'll be lost without her; she grew up with her grandparents when her parents were killed in an accident.  She's so electronically connected, she almost doesn't know what to do with herself when there's no cell service at the resort.

The resort is run down, the owners are lackadaisical and there almost no guests there.  Even the shutters are falling off the main lodge.  It looks very old and run down in Kate's eyes, but Sally remembers it as it was and has good memories to associate with it.  She came to revisit the past, but she meets a new man and finds a new future ahead of her.

Kate has her own dragons to slay before she can admit she has fallen in love.  She also begins to realize that some of her drive to success may be misdirected.  It's not the money or the position that rewards you, it's happiness and a chance to do good in life.

There's some Christianity mentioned in the story but it's not overwhelming.  It's a soft sweet romance with two happy endings.  I enjoyed it.  Why don't you give it a try?
