Book #5 of the Lumby series. What Garrison Keillor did for Lake Wobegon and Jan Karon did for Mitford, Gail Fraser has done for Lumby - a town so heartwarming and endearing, you'll be forever transported. When Pam and Mark Walker's relatives descend on Montis Inn for a week of vacation and an anniversary celebration, surprises abound that make this family reunion one that will never be forgotten.      As Mark's brother-in-law begins to broadcast his radio talk show from the inn's living room, other family members are more interested in the festivities at the county fair.  But it's not just the antique Ferris wheel that comes to a jolting stop when Carter Reed turns up the volume of his commentaries on small town living and takes the side of a real estate developer who's banking on turning Lumby into the next Aspen, and pits neighbor against neighbor while threatening the town's bucolic way of life.    And Pam juggles the generation gap between her thrill-seeking mother and a nonconformist niece who posts every detail of the clan's get-together on Facebook.   But for this one week, family, no matter how it's defined, is always a matter of the heart and a spirit that defines the town everyone has come to know and love - Lumby.

I have been waiting for this book "with bated breath" since the last Lumby came out. I just can't seem to get enough Lumby, the quirky little town in Washington State where life seems slowed paced, people care about each other, and have a lot of fun. My favorite parts are reading about the adventures of Hank (the pink flamingo) who is always a part of town life and dresses the part as well. I also love to read the entries that come out in the Lumby newspaper (The Lumby Lines)and marvel about how close these tales are to real small town life.
The main characters Pam and Mark have invited their family and a few friends to a renewal ceremony of their wedding vows on their anniversary. The story starts when Mark does not check the spelling of his name on the invitations. This is page 1, and I laughed and laughed at such a silly error. There are a lot of good things in this book, relationships mended, people helping each other during hard times, a lot of caring about each other which makes for a heart warming book.
The reason I did not like or rate this book as high as the previous books in the series had to do with all the "shock jock" material and the trouble with one of Mark's nieces. Although I understand texting, use of the Internet and chat rooms (especially for teenagers), I found it tiresome and tedious. I also was a little put off by all the sexual references by several of the characters. Not that I don't know this is part of life but it detracted from the joy of reading Lumby for me. The ending of the book was also just a little to quick and neatly "tied up in a ribbon" for me as well. Although I liked the book, it was just not as enjoyable as the previous ones that seemed to deal more with the people that "live" in Lumby and the surrounding areas. Will I read more Lumby books if they are written, absolutely. I realize you can't hit a home run every single time.

I have enjoyed the four previous Lumby titles, but this one leaves me puzzled and at times angry. A planned anniversary celebration/family reunion brings out the worst in visiting relatives, local residents and even Hank, the charming flamingo. The "groom's" side of the family are rude, demanding, destructive and scornful of Lumby, and the "bride's" side is a mother determined to shed 30 years and add a love interest. People treat their spouses as servants or--in the case of the "groom"--as a figure to be tricked and fooled and eluded when childish plans are being hatched. Rather than being an endearing reflection of current events, Hank the flamingo develops phobias and hostilities. Of course Fraser pulls off an acceptable ending, but after an invasion of nasties from the outside world, the charm of Lumby and its supportive residents seems a bit trampled and weary by the book's end. This book definitely falls short of her earlier titles. Hoping there are brighter skies in Lumby's future..............

I have read every one of the Lumby books and Gail Frasier again does a top notch job!
When I open the pages of a Lumby book and begin to read, it's like seeing wonderful friends after a long separation.
It was such a wonderful thing to see from all the wonderful residents of Lumby.
These books are heartwarming and entertaining, and, with the antics of Mark Walker, hilarious, too.
What a joy to read they are. They are well written and absolutely wonderful.
They remind me of Mitford, although without the spirituality of Jan Karon's books. They are also a reminder of Ann Ross's Miss Julia books. When you read any of these books, you fall in love with the residents and find yourself wishing that these little towns were actually on a map so you could visit.

I read the early books several years ago and remembered enjoying them so was delighted to order this one when I heard of its availability. I love it as it takes you right there to the charming town and you feel part of it. I can hardly wait for the next one, due out in June!

A series of stories that need to be read in order. It's well worth the time. I love stories about smalltown USA that hold humor. And these are funny. I love the moose who they have named who wanders around at will causing mayhem wherever he goes. There is always a 'moral' if you will in each story. It's woven into the tale so well you don't realize until you've closed the book that you've learned something. I would suggest this book for those 40 and older. I don't think the younger generation would appreciate the maturity.

Ordered for someone else.

I love this book and it was a great read. I love the characters and the town and the silly predicaments they get themselves into. I have ordered several more and bought more of the Lumby series. Keep up the great work Ms. Fraser!
Great feel good book.
