Two Roads Home: A Chicory Inn Novel - Book 2 Review

About The Book:  Two Roads Home (Abingdon Press, June 2015)  What if it's too late for dreams to come true?  Minor---but-nagging setbacks continue to sour Grant and Audrey Whitman's initiation into the world of innkeeping, but larger challenges brew when an innocent flirtation leads to big trouble for the Whitmans' son-in-law, Jesse. Jesse Pennington's friendly, outgoing personality has always served him well, especially in a career that has earned him and his wife Corinne a very comfortable lifestyle. But Corinne and Jesse are both restless---and for similar reasons, if only they could share those with each other. Instead, too many business trips and trumped-up charges of harassment from a disgruntled coworker threaten their marriage and possibly put their three precious daughters at risk.  With their life in disarray, God is tugging at their hearts to pursue other dreams. Can Corinne and Jesse pick up the pieces of what was once a wonderful life before it all crumbles beneath them?  Purchase a copy:
About The Author: 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.  Find Deborah online: website, Twitter, Facebook
My Thoughts On The Book: I picked this book from the publisher when I got the email because I love reading Deborah Raney and I love books about Inns set somewhere I would love to travel.   I could not wait to read the book and I wanted uninterrupted time, so I let a few hours pass...waiting for that perfect moment to sit down.  The characters felt as if they were people I actually knew and their problems were some everybody can relate to.  This story was not a could not put it down kind of story, but I enjoyed my time spent with this family.  Raney always does a great job humanizing her characters and drawing her readers in.  This is a good read for the summer.
