Another really enjoyable Miss Julia adventure.
I always have some reactions to Miss Julia's strong-willed impulsivity, and kind of righteous streak, and the over-the-top causes/adventures she gets herself involved in - then a real affection for her gifts with people, down-to-earth qualities, zest for life, and good heart.

This book is fourth in a popular series about a Southern widow with perfect manners and a taste for trouble. When a greedy landowner threatens the housekeeper's neighborhood, the heroine gambles her own home and "flouts her sense of propriety" to save the housekeeper's home and help her out.

I Love ALL the Miss Julia books! I suppose they are "too tame" for some< but they are funny and have very good moral quality, while still keeping you interested. Try Miss Julia books, you will like them.

Funny story about beloved Miss Julia! The only problem with this series is that it takes a year to get a new story...LOL! This one especially has such funny parts, and Miss Julia is always adept at getting into and out of trouble---this time even with a lecherous old man! And always with a very dignified approach. She is such a hoot!

I really love the Miss Julia series. Ann B. Ross is able to paint a word picture of this southern lady that you can't help but laugh at.

Fourth in a popular series about a Southern widow with perfect manners and a taste for trouble, Ross's latest will bring a chorus of "Thank you, Lord"s from faithful readers. Newcomers may need a moment to figure out who's who in the cast-for instance, that Little Lloyd is the son of Julia's late husband, Wesley Lloyd Springer, and his "paramour," Hazel Marie, both of whom Julia has embraced as family. Ross's heroine may set a premium on appearances, like any traditional Southern lady, but what she really loves is problem solving and gracefully doing good. This time out, she finds herself championing her longtime housekeeper, Lillian. A greedy landowner is about to raze Lillian's home-in fact, the entire Willow Lane neighborhood, which houses low-income blacks. In order to save them, Julia gambles her own home and flouts her sense of propriety by donning Hazel Marie's leather pants and participating in a high-stakes motorcycle marathon and poker game, along with the Presbyterian minister's previously stodgy wife. And if that sounds improbable, factor in a spring whose water has an awesome effect on garden shrubbery and men's anatomy, furnishing oodles of delicious scandal. Series fans take note: Binkie and Coleman have a baby, and things look mighty promising between Julia and lawyer Sam Murdoch at the end of the book.

Another adventure by the steel backboned, sharp tongued, prim and proper Miss Julia! This time it involves an unlikely suitor and even more unlikely motorcycle ride. Miss Julia is delightful, witty and wise - an unforgettable character.

Miss Julia is at it again, in her most perfectly starched, Southern manner. This time she nearly looses her beautiful house to defend her friend and housekeeper, Lillian. Southern manners with a great, big smile!

More of the irrespressible Miss Julia and her friends. This time they take on a land developer who throws Lillian and her neighbors out of their homes to build a bottling facility for a spring of water of amazing repute. Fun, funny and heartwarming despite itself.

Miss Julia would do anything for her cook Lillian who is about to lose her home. The idea of a poker run doesn't sound like fun to Miss Julia, but the town eccentric Thurlow Jones offers her lots of money to get on a motorcycle for the race. In true Miss Julia fashion, she puts up her own house to stop the wrecking ball. Now she has to go through with the race. But there are many obstacles including Thurlow Jones, Mr. Pickens' ex-wife, and Sam's driving. On top of it all, she thinks Sam is losing his mind because he is sending flowers with love notes. Can Miss Julia overcome it all and save both their houses?

This is the 4th in the series.

Miss Julia-that Southern spitfire of a certain age who is never less than charming, even when she's at her most opinionated-has been praised by Fannie Flagg as one of the most delightful characters to come along in years. In Miss Julia Hits the Road, she is becoming increasingly concerned about her gentleman friend, Sam, who has suddenly started wearing cowboy boots, sending her flowers, and writing bad poetry. And when he shows up on a Harley-Davidson Road King and asks her to hop on, she's convinced he's lost his mind. Meanwhile, her invaluable housekeeper, Lillian, has been evicted from her home by her greedy landlord. Deciding that Lillian's need is greater than her own fear (not to mention loss of dignity), Miss Julia takes Sam up on his offer and sets off on a motorcycle Poker Run to raise some fast cash. She's ready to risk life and limb in Sam's sidecar to save Lillian's home from the bulldozer, but will Miss Julia's scheme work?

Author Biography: Ann B. Ross is the author of some of the most popular Southern novels in years, including Miss Julia Takes Over and Miss Julia Throws a Wedding.
