Stealing Lumby Book Review

A while back I told you about . I'm on to the second book in the series Stealing Lumby and is just as charming. As you all know I love this book because one it's based in Washington but the story just sucks you into this small town you so want to be a part of.

In the second book in the series we are taken on a wild trip of a missing painting that turns out to be a 2 old barns in Lumby. The press hit Lumby in full force to find out more about the small town and ruffle a few feathers in the process. Most stay at the Montis Inn owned by once City Folks Pam & Mark who now are part of this small town and don't miss the city one bit!

Most of the reporters are rude and hate the small town that doesn't offer the same amenities as the big city. If only they knew what they lack in Starbucks they more then make up for in charm! You'll fall more in love with this town as you see them pull together when one of the famous barns in the paintings disappears in the middle of the night. They come together for a barn raising and then even pitch in to paint the barn.

During these crazy times a flood hits the Lumby Library giving Charlotte Ross the town richest lady the town to give like she always does to update the Library. She adds in a children's wing, a fireplace and a few other new items. Charlotte usually gives as anonymous and has a few other surprises up her sleeve. During all this commotion the poor Monks of Saint Cross Abby are being threated with a hostile take over for their rum business that Pam helped them put together the year before.

Many surprise are around the corner for Lumby and the wonderful town people. Some sad but over all good things to come. This book had me again laughing out loud at the gym while I was reading it. Gail Fraser has an amazing way of writing and make you feel like you are a part of the book. I promise you'll enjoy this book and want to read the rest of series like I do. I'm almost done with book 3 and can't wait to read book 4 and 5 and then I'll have to find out where to get book 6 :).

Thank you FSB Associates for another great book! I received a book to read, no compensation for my opinion of the series.
