Reviewing "Home to Chicory Lane" by Deborah Raney


"Home to Chicory Lane" is a charming and eventful book about a family embarking on a new and exciting business venture, The Chicory Inn Bed and Breakfast. Although the plot centers around the Whitman family as a whole, it mainly focuses on daughter, Landyn, and her new husband, Chase.  The family has no idea about the turmoil the newlyweds are facing until Landyn shows up at the Whitmans' door with a U-haul on the day of the Inn's Grand Opening.
I really enjoyed this book and actually finished it in under 24 hours. The Whitman family comes across as a normal, large, Christian family dealing with all that life throws at them on a daily basis. The characters are charming and real, having all of their own faults and struggles they are dealing with.  Since this is the first book in the series, there also appear to be several plot lines being set up for future books.
Throughout the book, I found myself rooting for the main characters, drawn into their personal struggles, and hoping for the best. The suspense built all the way until the end, and it has left me wanting to read to the next book as soon I can get my hands on it.
I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys modern day Christian fiction based on family life with some romance thrown in.
