Miss Julia, beloved steel magnolia of a certain age, has been doing just fine for herself in the years since her philandering husband passed away. But could her single days be numbered? Julia's longtime beau, Sam Murdoch, wants to tie the knot. Miss Julia isn't about to give up her independence so easily. At the moment there are many other matters that require her attention, such as the plans of the mysterious drifter Dwayne Dooley to build the Walk Where Jesus Walked Christian theme park, a re-recreation of the Holy Land complete with actors, sound effects, and trailer hookups on her property. Miss Julia's own home is not immune to shock waves, the arrival of Latisha, housekeeper Lillian's five year old, pistol of a great-granddaughter, sets off sparks in Miss Julia's household like a bunch of 4th of July firecrackers. But what could shake them all up even more is if anyone finds out the most troubling gossip of all, more tall tales about Miss Julia's late husband. 7 cassettes, 11 1/3 hrs.
Miss Julia is as uptight and funny as ever. She and Sam tickle me. This time Miss Julia is concerned about a Biblical theme park being opened on some of her land right outside town. Apparently the woman living with the park's founder is another one of Lloyd's illicit affairs from the past.
Miss Julia Meets Her Match is about a small Southern town where a traveling preacher wants to build a Holy Land amusement park. Miss Julia thinks the idea is okay until she finds out the preacher's girlfriend is one of her late husband's ex-girlfriends. She doesn't want Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd to find out about it, so she hires Mr. Pickens to go undercover. A local young man has returned to town as a female. Miss Julia decides to draw attention away from her situation of another ex lover with a coming out party for the new girl in town, Tonya.
Another excellent tome in the saga of Miss Julia. This one unfolds as Miss Julia is trying to protect Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd from the rumors flying about another of Mr. Springer's tryst prehumously, of course. And, added to her "worries" is the every devoted Sam who tries everything he can to get her to commit to marrying him! And, every bit as funny and fun to read as the others!
I don't know if the characters or the plots are what has me hooked, but you should read these books if you like good storytelling.
