Nestled in the Northwest is a quaint little town that its quirky residents are proud to call home. With charming shops lining its one main thoroughfare, Lumby has the oldest apple tree in the county and the smallest bank in the state. And though it's hours from the nearest big city, you'll always find Lumby close to your heart . . .
Nearly destroyed by fire, Montis Abbey remains a ruin on the outskirts of Lumby. Once home to a resourceful order of monks, it stands abandoned, surrounded by its overgrown orchards. Then Mark and Pam Walker, a vacationing couple from the East Coast, stumble upon it -- and upon the answer to their prayers. Leaving behind their hectic lives to restore the monastery and turn it into an inn is a dream come true.
But some residents of Lumby take a while to warm up to outsiders. One of them is irascible William Beezer, owner of The Lumby Lines -- the newspaper "worth the paper it's printed on." At every turn, he tries to hinder the Walkers' efforts. The couple soon learns that for every citizen like William, there are many more willing to lend a hand, and that Lumby isn't just a place -- it's a way of life.
Other books in this series include: Stealing Lumby, Lumby's Bounty, The Promise of Lumby, and Lumby on the Air (coming Spring 2010).
OH MY GOSH!!
This series of books are amazing!!I was provided with the entire series minus Lumby on the Air, because it hasn't been released yet. Well that I know of. Trust me I'll be getting it when it does!
You have such a diverse group of people that by the time you are done reading the books you want to move to Lumby. I mean who wouldn't love to live in a town where a dog (yes, I said a DOG!) could be voted mayor. You have nuns, monks, and regular folks mixing it up in a vineyard, hanging out out a remodeled once church now inn, trouble maker teens that make for an enjoyable book. If you want to join in the crazy, fun of Lumby you can go here to purchase them.
