Pam and Mark Walker are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary with a week-long family reunion and a ceremony renewing their vows. But when Mark’s brother-in-law starts broadcasting his radio talk show from Montis Inn, his disparaging remarks about small-town life cause immediate rifts that only widen when he sides with a real estate developer who wants to turn Lumby into an asphalt Aspen. As the controversy pits family against family, and neighbor against neighbor, will the spirit that defines Lumby triumph once again?
Just when I thought I’d seen it all in Lumby, Gail Fraser comes out with a new installment that has me completely hooked.
Pam and Mark are about to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and the celebration will be attended by their families – characters ranging from the estranged older sister of Mark to Pam’s fun-loving mother, a rebellious teenage niece and a brother-in-law who needs to, quite frankly, learn a lesson.
There was the usual cast of hilarious characters – Howard the Moose, Hank the Plastic Flamingo and.. as always, the funny entries of The Lumby Lines newspaper.
I really, really enjoyed seeing relationships evolve and this book was made a whole lot more personal for me as I found myself identifying with several of the characters represented. Of course, as I’ve learned to expect by now, there were some fantastic elements to the story.. but it’s part of the charm of these books and I fully enjoyed escaping to Lumby again and will definitely be looking out for Lumby Book #6.
