Spring Reads: Home At Last by Deborah Raney

Abingdon Press; 272 pages; $14.99; Buy Link; Blog Tour

Now available from Abingdon Press is the romantic novel Home At Last, book 5 in the Chicory Inn series, by author Deborah Raney.

While I prefer to read romances set during the 1800s, I have from time to time stepped out of my comfort zone and read a few contemporary titles. If you follow this blog, then might have remember me reviewing one or two of the titles from the Chicory Inn series. I had completely forgotten about the series until I received an email about the Home At Last book tour, so naturally I signed up to review it.

This time around the series centers on a bachelor named Link Whitman, who's life isn't exactly where he thought it should be as he approaches thirty-years-old. He's stuck in a dead-end job. And he's being pressured by his sisters' to get settle down and get married.

This is where Shayla Michaels comes into the plot. She's struggling to raise her young niece, while at the same time she's also trying to run her father's business. Of course this is a romance, so you can pretty much guess that Shayla and Link crosses paths and a romance eventually blooms.

Final Thoughts: Overall, I enjoyed reading Home At Last. It's not exactly a perfect read. There were a few things that held the novel back for me, but I'm not going to nitpick here about what I didn't like. However, I did like all the characters and the novel's pacing. I would definitely recommend the title to others.

*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
