Review:

The last few weeks have been a bit hectic for me as I had to remove the carpet from a bedroom that was ruined by rainwater and now I'm patching up any cracks/holes in the concrete floor before I put down a tile flooring. However, I've squeezed in enough time to read a few new books, including Two Roads Home by Deborah Raney.

Two Roads Home centers on Grant and Audrey Whitman, whom are dealing with several setbacks while trying to run their bed & breakfast. To make matters worse, there far more problems for their daughter, Corinne, and their son-in-law, Jesse.

While their marriage was wonderful at first, Jesse's obsessed with his job and the countless business trips, not to mention the harassment from a co-worker, has put damper on their marriage & their children. Neither one of them are happy in their marriage. With both of them lacking faith in marriage and in God, they'll have to find away to find happiness again.

Honestly, I read a lot of books, so I'm not for sure if I've read the first novel in the series or not. If did miss the first novel, I had no trouble jumping into the sequel. I have a thing for books that involves innkeepers, so I naturally wanted to read this. Sadly, I was a little disappointed (well, more like bored) for the first few chapters. I don't what happened, I guess I didn't connect with any the characters. I pushed myself to finish reading the rest of the book, which I'm glad that I did as it turned out to pretty decent.

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.
