"Home to Chicory Lane" by Deborah Raney

Audrey and Grant have raised their family and are ready for a change, a new challenge. They decide to turn their home into a Bed and Breakfast, which is a lot of work but also cause for celebration. Will everything run smoothly, or will there be some glitches?

The kids are grown and out of the house. Now it is time for Audrey and Grant to do some of the things they always wanted to do. They decide that with all the space they have and their location, it would be a good place for a B&B - the Chicory Inn. There is a lot to do, but they are excited to have friends and family come join them for the opening. But, then their daughter Landyn arrives without her husband, but with her things. It has only been six months and her husband has not only lost his job, but has upended their lives. As they embark on this new venture, will Audrey and Grant have the time and wisdom to lead Landyn? Is that marriage repairable? And, what about the Chicory Inn? Will the opening go well or will they have to cancel their plans? You will find the answers to these questions and more in this new heart-warming story by Deborah Raney.

I love the way Deborah Raney writes. Her stories are filled with real life characters and situations. She drew me right in and I found myself rooting for the characters, especially Audrey and Landyn. If you are looking for a heart-warming story that will fill your evening, this book is for you. I received my review copy from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for an honest review.

About the book: 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?

About the author: Deborah Raney's books have won numerous awards, including the RITA, National Readers Choice Award, HOLT Medallion, and the Carol Award, and have twice been Christy Award finalists. She and her husband, Ken, recently traded small-town life in Kansas---the setting of many of Deborah's novels---for life in the (relatively) big city of Wichita, where they enjoy gardening, antiquing, movies, and traveling to visit four children and a growing brood of grandchildren who all live much too far away.
