Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with another awesome book review, and this time I will be reviewing Home to Chicory Lane, by Deborah Raney.
In this book, “Home to Chicory Lane,” we are introduced to the family of Audrey and Grant Whitman, loners, home-bodies, and newly found empty-nesters. The couple, who have spent the last year renovating into a bed-and-breakfast. On the day of their open house, all of their children are expected to help with the opening weekend chores, tours, and activities, with the exception of their youngest child, Landyn, a newlywed living in New York City. To complicate opening weekend jitters, the Whitman’s receive their first guest, the unexpected Landyn, with a U-Haul in tow.
Audrey and Landym soon clash, as Audrey needing to ficus on her business, sees her daughters presence as more of a distraction than an aid. Soon however, Grant must step into the narrative as the heroic voice of reason and attempt to reconcile the pair. Constant conflict between mother and daughter finally drives Landyn back to New York to try to work things out with her husband, and in a unexpected O’Henry-twist, Landyn discovers that her husband Chase, had flown to Missouri to talk to her, complicating matters.
Will Landyn and Chase get back together? Will Audrey and Grant make a success of the Bed and Breakfast? You will have to read to find out!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Home to Chicory Lane, ” as this is just the type of story which intrigues my fall, loving my warm socks and a blanket, mood these days!
