I loved this book! Although a light read and very funny, the characters were strongly drawn, and I could practically visualize them. There are some witty "home truths," a thoroughly southern viewpoint, and engaging characters. I'm so pleased that Miss Julia is not a one book wonder, but appears again and again! I'm looking forward to them all.

This novel employs traditional Southern Humor, tonal variety and psychological truth. An interesting take on gender, race and family in the south.

I'd give this book six stars if possible, it was a joy to read, can't believe I never caught this series until now.

Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal-and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.

With razor-sharp wit and perfect "Steel Magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind indeed-about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. Fast-paced and charming, with a sure sense of comic drama, a cast of crazy characters, and a strong Southern cadence, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight readers from first page to last.

Just okay. If I have time I will read the next one. Or, if I am curious enough I will read it. Kind of predictable, but I do like Miss Julia. The picture of Miss Julia I have in my mind does not match the Miss Julia on the front cover. She looks about 40 there.

A great start to a series. She is everything a strong southern woman should be. The plot takes some turns you wouldn't expect, but it makes for a light and fun read.
