Mark and Pam Walker have been vacationing in Lumby regularly, from Falls Church Virginia, and suddenly decide to buy and restore the burned out Montis Abbey. The plan, such as it is, is to turn it into an inn and restaurant. They have no experience, and very different ideas about what "living richly" means.
Mark, a landscape architect, is thrilled, but Pam is having second thoughts as costs escalate, and time flies by. Considered outsiders, they try to make friends with the odd and often hilarious residents of Lumby and get their business off the ground.
This book is part of a series and the small town life described leaves me both wanting to move there, or run screaming back to a city. I want the rest of the series--this is so funny and clever, it just made my day!
I received this book from Caitlin at FSB Associates. Thank you!!
