$200 B&B Weekend Getaway Giveaway & 9/9 Facebook Party with Deborah Raney!

Home to Chicory Lane || Book 1, A Chicory Inn Novel

Landyn longs for home, but her mother may have other plans.
Audrey Whitman’s dreams are coming true. Now that their five kids are grown, she and her husband, Grant, are turning their beloved family home into a cozy bed and breakfast just a mile outside of Langhorne, Missouri.
Opening weekend makes Audrey anxious, with family and friends coming from all over to help celebrate the occasion. But when Audrey’s daughter, Landyn, arrives, the U-Haul she’s pulling makes it clear she’s not just here for a few days. Audrey immediately has questions. What happened in New York that sent Landyn running home? Where was Landyn’s husband, Chase? And what else was her daughter not telling her? One thing was for sure, the Chicory Inn was off to a rocky start. Can Audrey still realize her dream and at the same time provide the comfort of home her daughter so desperately needs?

MY REVIEW-Deborah Raney is one of those authors I really enjoy reading. She writes novels about real people in real life situations. And this new series is no different. You will thoroughly love this book and the characters found therein.

Grant and Audrey have made their house into an inn after their children have all grown and moved out. Audrey is dealing with having an empty house but also worrying about her husband and the debt they have from the inn. The dialogue goes back and forth from all the main players, Audrey, Grant, Chase, and Landyn. We see what is going on with all of them and their perspectives. When the open house day comes their daughter Landyn arrives pulling a trailer and no husband. Turns out her husband Chase made a stupid move. Or what appears to be a stupid move to her. So she left him in NY and came home to MO.

I really fell in love with Audrey and Grant. They have their problems but you could just feel the love between them. Their relationship is so sweet as you see them work out their difficulties. Of course at times I wanted to slap each of them, but they put each other first and really show a wonderful marriage. Landyn and Chase I had a little bit of trouble with. Mainly because they were so stubborn with each other. And don't get me wrong, I understand having hurt feelings and the little things that seem to be bigger than they are. But they seemed to over-react a lot and almost act childish. Before the book is over you will want to scream and I think this makes the book so realistic. Often situations in life make us feel upset, angry and unsure of what our choice should be. Wonderful opening to a new series Deborah!!
