Tucked into the foothills of the Rockies lies the charming village of Lumby, where quirky but tolerant townsfolk usually make the best of any situation. Not a week goes by without some humorous mayhem occurring under the watchful eyes of the mayor, sheriff, and, of course, the town mascot, Hank, a pink flamingo who thinks he’s a bald eagle…
How Lumby has come to host a hot air balloon festival is a long story, but the town’s residents are jumping right into preparations. But in the Lumby tradition, it won’t all be blue skies and smooth sailing…
In Lumby’s Bounty, Gail Fraser finally began to make her way back to the charm I fell in love with in The Lumby Lines. Things are back to normal in Lumby – well, as close to normal as they can possibly be.
There were several things I enjoyed seeing in this book – the first being the evolution of Brian Beezer, one of the teenagers who causes so much trouble in the first two books. It was good to see his character emerge and the small story-line with him “trading up” was cute and made me giggle a few times.
I also enjoyed seeing Pam find more of herself – but am finding myself more and more annoyed by Mark. There were a few actions of his in the book that actually angered me and I’m feeling as if perhaps I’m getting close to being done with the Walkers – maybe the next book will change that.
I had a harder time getting through this book though (too much of the same in a short amount of time) and I hope that in the fourth book in the series she spends more time on some of the other residents – as they have waited long enough for their turn.
