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.
My Take: As with all the other books I have read by Deborah Raney this book draws you in and engages you from the very start. I am in basically the same time of life as Audrey and Grant as my oldest daughter is getting married this weekend and we have all adult children. I would also have alot of questions if one of my children just showed up at my house with a Uhaul. This book is basically about the story of Landryn and her husband Chase. Chase is literally chasing his dream but it seems as if he is leaving Landryn out of the dream. I enjoyed this start to this series and look forward to reading the next installments.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
