"Two Roads Home"

Book info
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?

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.

My Review:
 Before I was even done with book #1 in the Chicory Inn series by Deborah Raney, I knew that this was a must-read series for me, meaning as soon as the next books were out I had to have them to read!  "Home to Chicory Lane" set the scene for this series as the family home is being converted into an inn as a couple is dealing with an empty nest or so they thought.  Now, "Two Roads Home" continues on with the family but focuses more on daughter Corinne and her husband and their daughters.  Jesse and Corinne are faced with challenges that result in some major life changes and really learn what it is like to be a team.  I really do not want to say too much about the storyline as I do not want to give anything away.  This book is just so good that I highly recommend it.  It ties in the country charm of a cute inn, but also the characters are so real as they are dealing with real-life issues and their lives are not romanticized in the least.  I found myself cringing and questioning some of the actions and decisions made and cheered at other moments; now I am eagerly looking forward to book #3 to see how things are going in these characters' lives once more.
