Of course it's a lot easier than it sounds. After all, while living in a small town has a great many perks, one of the downsides is that it can take some time for residents to warm up to strangers. Mark and Pam are faced with a town wary of newcomers and suspicious of their real intentions. And suddenly, mysterious occurrences are keeping the work from being completed at Montis Abbey. Tension rises in the Walker couple, as their entire savings have gone into the operation.
The plotline is delightfully simple yet well written, and the characters are lovable; but that only is part of the charm. For another thing that The Lumby Lines: A Novel does it to prove a certain theory wrong: that a book meant to escape one's day-to-day life thoroughly has to be pure fluff to be enjoyable and relaxing. A very well-written light fiction filled with great moments of reflection, The Lumby Lines: A Novel is a great way to spend a relaxing, lazy summer afternoon swinging in a hammock. While simply composed, the writing flows like a dream, including witty and fast-paced dialog, resulting in a carefully woven tale that brings to life small town life and quirkiness.
A blend of mystery and romance, The Lumby Lines: A Novel is a book you will read throughout, turning the last page with a deep sigh of contentment and a smile on your face.
It's a good thing that this book is only the first in a series!
