    Home To Chicory Lane ( Chicory Inn Book #1 )

    By: Deborah Raney

    I did not know what to expect when starting to read Home to Chicory Lane, but I was not disappointed. Deborah Raney now has me hooked. I will be reding more of her books. I did not have any problems following the story or the characters. Audrey and Grant have spent most of their saving on their home remodeling it into a bed and breakface, Chicory Inn, this is a new start for both of them .Opening day is a big success with family and friends. Driving up the drive way was their daughter, Landyn, driving her car and pulling a trailer . What is going on, where is Chase, her husband of six months. Landyn is a little upset about some of the changes to her old home. Now Grant and Audrey have more worries beside the Inn. What would send their daughter home without her husband , Chase ? Where will they put her. The guest are being toured through the Inn. Home to Chicory Lane main characters are Landyn and Chase. It is a very long ways from New York to Missouri. I fell in love with these two and felt sorry for both of them. I wanted to tell them to stop and grow up. A few times I caught myself saying NO NO and tears in my eyes. Will things work out for Audrey and Grant with their new Inn. What will happen between Landyn and Chase.

    Faith is the main theme in Home to Chicory Lane.

    A STORY ABOUT A GODLY FAMILY.....WITH A FEW PROBLEMS!

    Empty nesters Audrey and Grant Whitman have raised their five children in a stately home just a mile outside of Langhorne, Missouri. Each book in the Chicory Inn Series will focus on one of their children the first being Landyn Whitman Spencer, the baby of the family. This heartwarming story begins with the excitement and tension of opening weekend of the Chicory Inn. It was Audreys dream of renovating the home built by her grandparents over a hundred years ago into a bed and breakfast. Her husband Grant, now retired, had been a bit averse to sinking most of his retirement into the project, but did so without grumbling much because after all.Audrey had grown up in this houseand he lovingly gave Audrey her way.

    The Inn was completely filled by reservations and Audrey was having opening day jitters. It did not help that Corrine arrived toting fussy baby Simone. Simone was teething, and Corrine did not want daddy Jesse to deal with that. Corrine cut in that her dad could watch Simone if need be. Her excuse was irritating to Audrey and she pushed down her resentment, even when Simone wiped her nose on Audreys apple green jacket and Corrine laughed saying Well, at least it matches. Corrine then dabbed Simones nose with a tissue which made her screech like a banshee causing the dog Huckleberry to come running and barking. Deborah Raneys prose is transparent and humorous initiating my attention to be held captive from the first page.

    Little do Audrey and Grant suspect their stress level has only begun. Daughter Landyn Whitman Chase is pulling a U-Haul trailer from New York City arriving home at an ill-timed moment with no explanation. She does have valid reason to herself anyway as to why she has come home. Landyn and Chase have been married a mere six months and Chase made a rash decision without discussing it with her no less. He had let their apartment on the Upper West Side be sublet, rented a fleabag studio apartment in Brooklyn because God was leading him in this way to further his art career. This made no sense to Landynshe had much to think about including a bit of information she was withholding from Chase. I had better stop right here and let you read the story for yourself.

    Deborah Raneys plot was well rounded with heartaches to joys. I could identify easily with Audrey as a mother. As I read through the book I could relate to each side of conflicts. If you are ready to laugh and cry, then read this lovely story about family life based on Godly principles. Ms. Raney writes realistic drama with deep feeling and wisdom. This is the first book by Deborah Raney I have readand it will not be the last. I dont want to hurry a great writer.she needs time to develop her stories with aplomb and eloquence. I will be patient and waitkeeping my ears and eyes open for the next novel about the Whitman family. Who will be in trouble next?

    A look into newlywed life

    I want to live in this house... well, inn. I love the picture of this house. It set a perfect stage in my mind for where so much of the story took place.

    The story doesn't take long to develop at all. Within the first few chapters, the stage is set and the reader is introduced to the conflict that makes up much of the book. Audrey and Grant are finally opening their inn. They have poured themselves into it and have completely remodeled. Even the kids don't recognize their own home!

    Landyn and Chase are the ones that most of the conflict lies around. Landon wants to protect Chase's name and reputation with her parents and is willing to take more blame than she probably should as to why she has come home. Chase has bought into a dream that may or may not become a reality. However, it was a decision that he neglected to consider his new wife's feelings that led to huge problems.

    So in the middle of opening and running their new inn, Audrey and Grant are now trying to figure out what happened to Landyn and how they may be of help.

    I liked seeing the conflict between newlyweds and how they dealt with it. So many people think newlywed life is bliss. It can be, but there is so much you learn in your first year of marriage. I liked the honest look into this stage of their life. I look forward to more things that will be discussed in her future books.

    Deborah Raney in her new book, Home To Chicory Lane Book One in the Chicory Inn series published by Abingdon Press brings us into the life of Audrey Whitman.

    From the back cover: Welcome to Chicory Inn Where family is (almost) always welcome!

    Audrey Whitmans 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 Audreys daughter, Landyn, arrives, the U-Haul shes pulling makes it clear shes not just here for a few days.

    Audrey immediately has questions. What happened in New York that sent Landyn running home? Where was Landyns 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?

    There is something romantic and appealing about a Bed and Breakfast. I would rather stay there than some hotel. Maybe it is the homeliness of the place or just the simplicity. Whatever I prefer a Bed and Breakfast. What do you do when your dream has been not to go to one but to own and run one? And just when you think you have it together one of your married daughters returns home without her husband. And on opening weekend.This is life. It is not always fun and sometimes it doesnt operate on your schedule. Thats the way of it. Ms. Raney explores the little details of family that make this book so much fun to read. Audrey and the family are all likable and Ms. Raney has a way of making the characters lives very real so that we feel that we are living the moments with them. We feel that we know these people. We enjoy spending our time with them. We root for them to win. And when the book is over and we cannot spend time with them anymore we mourn. The good news is though that there are more books to come in this series and I for one can hardly wait.

    Romance fiction is a huge genre, and takes the reader through those early stages of a relationship and usually ends with an engagement or a wedding and the promise of happy-ever-after. But we all know thats not the end. Thats only the beginning, and theres more to marriage than roses and candlelit dinners. Theres life, and its not always happy. Home to Chicory Lane explores this from different perspectives, and its good to see fictional characters exploring real issues without it becoming angsty.

    Audrey and Grant Whitman have spent the last year renovating their family home to turn it into a B&B, and its opening weekend. Landyn, the recently-married youngest of their five children, turns up on the doorstep needing a place to stayshes left her husband, Cory, because he made a major decision without consulting herbecause he was sure God told him to do it.

    My initial feelings towards Landyn were frustration. Yes, I could see what Cory had done wasnt good, but immediately running home to Mommy and Daddy didnt show Landyn in a good light. She came across as selfish and whiney (never attractive qualities), but this was the basis for her personal growth, both as an individual, as a Christian, and as part of a marriage. While I didnt like her at first, I did by the end, and I could see how the youngest of five could be that way. Home to Chicory Lane did a good job of showing how she learned that there is more to a good marriage than, well, you know.

    Cory was a good character. He never thought he was good enough, because of his family upbringing, so he had that to deal with, along with a flighty wife. His background meant he felt inferior to the Whitman family, and this came across in the way he interacted with Audrey and especially Grant. Meanwhile, Audrey and Grant had their own issues, with the financial stretch of starting a new business and Landyns unexpected arrival.

    Home to Chicory Lane was a little confusing in the beginning, with Audrey, Grant, five children, spouses and grandchildren. But it soon settled into the main story: Landyn and Cory, and Audrey and Grant. Its definitely a book written for the Christian market, as there is a central spiritual issue around Corys desire to be obedient to God despite Landyns uncertainty and frustration. There are a lot of lessons in here for newlyweds, and perhaps those with more established marriages. Ill look forward to reading future books in the series.
