Home to Chicory Lane

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?

Deborah Raney’s books have wonnumerous 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. Visit Deborah on the web at DeborahRaney.com.

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.

My Review

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.

Deborah is celebrating the release of her new series with a $200 B&B Weekend Getaway and a Facebook author chat party.

Biblical Beauty: Ancient Secrets And Modern Solutions Review + Giveaway


DOES THE BIBLE REALLY CONTAIN HIDDEN “BEAUTY SECRETS” that are useful to today’s woman? The answer revealed in Biblical Beauty is a resounding, “YES!”

Weaving together ancient strategies and modern technologies, Rachelle Weisberger helps expand our ideas about the true nature of beauty. Today’s culture has lost this view by focusing only on the physical, and Biblical Beauty gives you what’s missing.

Weisberger unmasks the timeless beauty that is not limited to physical features or chronological age. Rather, as you will discover, it is multifaceted and all-encompassing. Biblical beauty resonates throughout the entire body and radiates physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

How is Biblical Beauty different from other beauty books? By seamlessly integrating biblical, historical and cultural perspectives with practical advice and specific tips on a variety of subjects, it offers enlightening guidance on skin care, sun care, makeup, hair care, fragrance, jewelry, healthy aging, motherhood and leadership.

This informative and entertaining book also presents the women of the Hebrew Bible—Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Miriam, Rahab, Deborah, Bathsheba and Esther as well as Judith of the Apocrypha. Their personalities and lives serve as springboards to timely topics for your life right now.

More than a practical manual of self-beautification, Biblical Beauty also explores the inner qualities of several of these women through their compelling life stories. As role models, they become an inspiring compass to create a meaningful and satisfying life.

Your journey begins with conscious choices and new directions. You will become keenly aware that all of life’s aspects—including diet, exercise, personal relationships, interests and connecting with the Divine are an expression of who you are and together can easily enhance your natural beauty.

Biblical beauty is your invitation to transformational growth, leading to self-acceptance, self-empowerment—and beauty! Enjoy the ride.

VITAMIN C serum can be applied twice per day in the morning and at night. If you only use the serum once do so in the morning. Vitamin C serum will help protect you against future sun damage and other environmental stressors, but it is definitely not a substitute for sun screen!

Our Vitamin C serum is safe for all skin types and conditions including dry or irritated skin, wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexion, acne, and eczema, etc. You should not experience any dryness, but if you do you are most likely applying too much of the serum.

As you can see I have not really unpacked this !  I intend to send it to my Son for a present. Yes he has seen this picture already. To me it is awesome and someday I would like to get his Wedding picture done also.  The print on canvas is very high quality and so nice.  The size is nice for on any wall of the house and I so love the service received through out the process.  If I wasn’t happy with something, the person at Canvas HQ worked with me to resolve the issues until I was happy with the finished idea.  Then they printed and shipped this to me.  I love it !

I you want a nice print on canvas of your loved one or of you pet even, I highly recommend  Canvas HQ
