Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The third installment of Fraser's Lumby series looks in on the Rocky Mountain burg and finds its quirky citizens as busy as ever. In the midst of renovating the inn they've built from a fire-ravaged monastery, Mark and Pam Walker pop over to Saint Cross Abbey to visit the monks who helped them get going. The monks, now nationally acclaimed philanthropists, are struggling to accommodate an influx of seekers-some come for spiritual guidance, others are drawn by the abbey's booming gourmet food business. Across town, Caroline Ross, granddaughter of Lumby's late matriarch, has plans to buy Lumby's deserted train station and transform it into an arts center, but the bustle hits a bump when a high school student, posing as the mayor, secures Lumby's bid to host an annual hot air balloon festival. Lumby prepares to accommodate the scores of hot air-ballooning guests and to learn a thing or two about ballooning. Though this ambling tale takes a while to get off the ground, once the plots start moving, there are plenty of light chuckles to be had. (Jan.)

    wish there was a town of Lumby

    This is the third book in that chronicles the town of Lumby and its inhabitants and it just seems to get better and better. We have seen in the prior two books the changes in the town and in this book we are witness to changes in the people themselves.

    Brian Beezer, a ne'er-do-well teenager, who constantly seems to be getting into trouble, contracts in the towns name to host a hot air balloon festival and then sort of dumps the problem on the town to handle. As usual the residents come together to handle the situation and the underlying stories and interactions are entertaining as usual.

    I really don't want to go farther than that into the story because, IMO, it would definitely spoil the story for the next reader. The special characters from the previous books (Hank, Isabella-the blind horse) are joined with a few new "characters" as well as residents and visitors that are given more center stage. The book was so wonderfully written that I was constantly thinking about the story even when I wasn't reading it. I really wish there was a town of Lumby - I'd put it on my vacation list for sure!

    Another Hilarious Lumby Tale!!!!

    Lumby's Bounty by Gail Fraser

    In this third Lumby tale, we see the residents of Lumby pulling together to ready the town for their first ever Hot Air Balloon Festival. Mark Walker, owner of Montis Inn, who has never before built anything like a Hot Air Balloon, goes about b uilding a prototype for Lumby as the host town. When they get the two Indonesian brothers, Kai and Jamar, who are staying at the monastery, to help with the building of a bigger balloon, the residents find they have more than they bargain for, with humorous calamities galore. When the town herd of cows stampedes through Main Street, the residents prevent a catastrophe frfom occuring and when the residents' foray into buying an island in Bali goes down the drain, things begin to slide. If you enjoy books that make your stomach hurt when you laugh, this book is just right for you. The local paper has such funny little items about the local residents to leave you chuckling long after you've turned the last page. This series is a delight to read. The 4th book, A Promise of Lumby, comes out on the 14th of July.

    Please read the entire series. They are wonderful and I was so sad to come to the end of my third book of the series. My only hope is that they continue.
