***My review is my own personal opinion***
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?
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.

I love this new series! I’m so thrilled Deborah is sharing this wonderful story with all of us!
What happens when life doesn’t go according to plan?
Audrey and Grant have definitely earned the chance to follow their dream of opening a B&B after raising their 5 kids, but their baby girl Landyn may keep their dream from coming to pass!
This is a wonderful story of family and faith! In this first installment in the Chicory Inn series, we get introduced to the characters and learn more about their relationships. Chase and Landyn need to work through their problems. Chase makes a life altering decision without telling Landyn, but she has a huge secret of her own!
Not everyone is happy that Audrey is opening the Inn, but I think more than that, people are afraid of change and that’s really what this story is about. It’s about a family that’s growing and changing in their lives and in their faith.
It’s also a wonderful reminder to me that God can bring our dreams to fulfillment, but it may not always be in the way we expect!
I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
