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?

HOME TO CHICORY LANE is really the story of Landyn and her husband Chase. Chase is chasing his dreams but jumping without talking to his wife, just presenting her with fait accompli. And, of course, Landyn is rebelling, not wanting anything to do with his plans. To make matters worse, things are going from bad to worse, quickly.

HOME TO CHICORY LANE is a compelling story that will draw you in and make you care about the characters even when you want to throttle them and sit them both down and have a serious talk. Not that they’d listen. Both Chase and Landyn are hardheaded and selfish and need to grow up—for more reason that one. Don’t miss HOME TO CHICORY LANE for a compelling read that will make you thankful for home and family. $14.99. 352 pages. 5 stars.
