Home to Chicory Lane, book one of the Chicory Inn Novels by Deborah Raney is an entertaining read. Mom and Dad are empty nesters now, and they've converted their home to a bed & breakfast. Their children, including spouses and grandchildren come for the opening weekend. Only one of them is not eager to leave. Daughter Landyn has left her husband after he makes a large decision without consulting her. Landyn and Chase need to learn to communicate better if they're going to work things out. And there's someone else to consider now--their coming baby.
One of the bits of wisdom I appreciated from the story was on page 62 when Landyn's sister, Corinne says, "Being married is the best thing that ever happened to me, Landyn. But that doesn't mean it's easy. You're going to make selfish choices and self-centered mistakes, and you're going to hurt each other sometimes." True words, and a good reminder for us all.
Brianna also read this book, and even at 14, caught on that Landyn was pregnant before it was admitted in the book. But there are some plot twists and surprises, which I appreciate.
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.
