Lumby's Bounty by Gail Fraser

Lumby's Bounty is the third installment in the Lumby Series written by Gail Fraser. The first was The Lumby Lines, the second was Stealing Lumby.

Synopsis from the back of the book:
Tucked into the foothills of the Rockies lies the charming village of Lumby, where quirky and tolerant townsfolk usually make the best of any situation. Not a week goes by without some humorous mayhem occurring under the watchful eyes of the mayor, the sheriff, and, of course the town mascot, Hank, a pink flamingo who thinks he's a bald eagle...

How Lumby has come to host a hot-air balloon festival is a long story, but the town's residents are jumping right into preparations. Montis Inn owner Mark Walker assumes command with less than successful results. Lucky for Lumbians, two visitors at Saint Cross Abbey are balloon enthusiasts. As Kai and Jamar help Lumby take flight, their efforts are noticed by Caroline Ross, granddaughter of the town's recently deceased matriarch. While romance grows, cultures clash, and balloons crash in town, Pam Walker is tethered to her home with an overwhelming challenge of her own. And all are keeping their fingers crossed for blue skies and smooth sailing...

My thoughts:
This third installment in the Lumby series contained the same elements as the first two. There is a great combination of mystery, drama, romance and humor. While all of the same characters were present, there were some newer ones that were highlighted. My favorite of these was Hannah. Hannah had previously been mentioned just a few times as the wife of mayor Jimmy D. Hannah plays an integral role in the towns balloon entry for the festival. Throughout the story she tackles some personal struggles and learns a lot about herself. If you've been reading my reviews, you know how I feel about strong female characters. I especially love when there is self discovery involved.

Of the three installments that I've read so far I'd have to say that the second, Stealing Lumby has been my favorite so far. This is a great series to pick up if you are looking for an escape. It will hold your attention and capture your heart.
