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?

The first book in Deborah Raney‘s new Chicory Inn series, Home to Chicory Lane, introduces us to Audrey Whitman, a mother who has launched all her children into life and now looks forward to fulfilling some of her own dreams during her empty-nest years. However, not all of her children are ready to stay out of the nest quite yet.
I love the setting for this story ! Why ? Because I use to dream of someday owning a Bed & Breakfast. In a big victorian house is where I wanted my own to be. Being 50 I can relate to Audrey’s desire to have a dream of her own coming true with her husband. But sometimes life just for whatever reason takes you in a different direction. I like Audrey’s determination in what she desires and I love her caring spirit. Many a time have I had a grown child return home , even after married. I can so relate to this book in so many ways. You never know what coming next or who will come home again. I think you will love this heartfelt story just as much as I did, pick up a copy today and have a wonderful read. Deborah Raney surely can hold the interest of many a reader and touch your heart and soul with her stories.
