- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Home to Chicory Lane, by Deborah Raney, involves a gorgeous new B&B, the Whitman family, a headstrong daughter separated from her husband after only 6 months and plenty of real life drama. I loved Audrey and Grant Whitman, the owners of Chicory Inn. They are endearingly believable and refreshingly honest with each other and their children. I was charmed by the selfless efforts of Grant Whitman to fulfill his wife's dream of owning a B&B. If the entire book had been about Audrey and Grant I'm sure I would have relished every page. But the primary focus of Home to Chicory Lane is on their daughter Landyn and her husband, Chase. Landyn and Chase have been married for a mere 6 months and Chase makes a big decision without consulting Landyn. Resentment and hurt follow and Landyn decides to go back home in a rush of emotion. I wanted to sympathize with her. I wanted to be angry with, or at least feel something for her husband. I wanted to care about them, but in the end I just couldn't. In my opinion, they were both immature and selfish. Such a disappointment, as other characters showed so much promise. I will read more books in this series when they're released because I want to learn more about Bree, the young widow, and Link, the middle child whose often overlooked. I also want to learn more about Audrey and Grant Whitman and their adventures with their lovely B&B in Langhorne, Missouri.
