Miss Julia Throws a Wedding is the third in the Miss Julia series. Many readers hope that the wedding she is throwing would be her own with Sam or one for Hazel Marie and Mr. Pickens. But it is her boarder Deputy Coleman and her lawyer Binkie. They are expecting a baby. The fun begins when Binkie starts questioning if they should get married, the young preacher goes nuts, and the Virgin Mary appears across the street from Miss Julia's home.
This is the third book in the Miss Julia series by Ann B. Ross. If you have never read any of the Miss Julia books you are in for a real treat. If you can Imagine Aunt Bee from the Andy Griffith Show with a lot more backbone and confidence and drop her smack in the middle of a humorous, rollicking plot. Ann B. Ross has created what is sure to become a classic Southern comic novel. Horray for Miss Julia, I could not have enjoyed it any more.
A fun read and a typical Miss Julia story.
Miss Julia is a hoot. This is a "light read" but great fun.
If you like the "Dear Dorothy" series, you will probably also like this. Miss Julia is quite a character!
Miss Julia is her most proper self again in this delightful tale. Of course, she has the usual diffculties with unpredictable people, but she works her magic! This book is entertaining and perfect for "before bedtime" reading.
Coleman Bates and Binkie Enloe are engaged, and to Miss Julia that can mean only one thing - a REAL wedding with all the southern "frills". Of course, nothing is ever as it seems for Miss Julia and it just adds to the fun. She may not be a "Steel Magnolia", but she sure is a sweet, funny one!
The amazing Miss Julia, A feisty Southern heroine (who is best friends with her dead husband's mistress) plans a wedding for her attorney, her small town will never forget! A fun read!
Entertaining... all seems to be going well, then everything goes amuck and you wonder if even the unflappable Miss Julia can pull everyone back together. Of course she can, but the result is a little zany.
Another good time with Miss Julia in this third installment of the series. Binkie and Coleman announce that they are eloping; which Miss Julia cannot tolerate, so she volunteers to plan the wedding which is just a week away!
I like Miss Julia more in every book! This is the third book in the Miss Julia series, and I think they benefit from being read in order.
Miss Julia, a feisty Southern heroine in this wacky, warm-hearted tale of not-so-gracious living.
Another great Miss Julia book - She is such a hoot!
Miss Julia is a very funny lady. Make sure you catch all of her exploits.
Fun Southern chick-lit! An amusing, light read.
Miss Julia is a proper lady of a certain age with a backbone of iron and perfect steel magnolia poise, not to mention the sharpest tongue south of the Mason-Dixon Line. But Miss Julia Throws a Wedding
finds her a little wistful when Hazel Marie, once her late husband's paramour and now her best friend, prepares to move out and live in sin with that nice Mr. Pickens. And with her she's taking Little Lloyd, the apple of Miss Julia's eye!
But suddenly, to her delight, a wedding is in the offing. Handsome Deputy Sheriff Coleman Bates and attorney Binkie Enloe announce their plan to run down to the courthouse next week and tie the knot. That's no way to do it, insists Miss Julia (the only person around who knows cucumber sandwiches are correct in summer and ham biscuits in winter). Taking a few shortcuts in etiquette, Miss Julia decides to organize a real ceremony herself. Will Little Lloyd sing a solo? Will anybody notice the sparkling grape juice isn't champagne? These and other hilarious hurdles on the way to the altar reinforce Miss Julia's undying motto: if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
Author Biography: Ann B. Ross, who has taught literature at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, is the author of Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, one of the most popular Reader's Digest Condensed Books of 1999 and one of Book Sense's Top Ten Recommended Books, and Miss Julia Takes Over.
Busybody Miss Julia takes over planning a wedding for her boarder Deputy Coleman. Nothing goes as planned, but everyone has a great time.
Eight 1.5 hour cassettes read by Karen White. The reader liltingly accomplishes the impossible with different southern voices for each character.
Miss Julia Springer combines Southern grace, the dignity of a woman "of a certain age," an encyclopedic knowledge of etiquette, and a bitingly sharp tongue. A happy couple was planning a perfunctory courthouse wedding, but Miss Julia has plans of her own for a real honest-to-goodness ceremony, albeit with some shortcuts on the etiquette side. Miss Julia's caustic wit and unstoppable drive mean that the couple is going to get married the right way. This is a gem of a Southern comic novel.
"Good-natured entertainment, done with a sharp eye for the details of small-town southern life." (Kirkus Reviews)
Another Miss Julia adventure that leaves readers wanting more!
I really enjoy all of her Miss Julie book,it held my interest all the way thru.
If you've ever lived in a small town or been active in a church, chances are you know a Miss Julia, the paragon of outdated correctness at the center of Ann B. Ross's series of comic novels. One-third busybody, one-third Southern relic, and one-third loving kindness, the elderly Miss Julia finds herself at a loss at the beginning of Miss Julia Throws a Wedding. Although her own marriage was about as uplifting as a burned pot roast, she is mortified to learn that Hazel Marie, her dead husband's mistress, proposes to move out of Miss Julia's house and into a life of sin with the perpetual bachelor J.D. Pickens. At least Deputy Sheriff Coleman Bates and attorney Binkie Enloe, longtime lovers, have finally decided to do the right thing. Now if only they would do it the right way. Intent on preserving the niceties, Miss Julia takes over the wedding for Coleman and Binkie, vetoing their plans for a quick courthouse union and struggling to pull together a tasteful formal event with one week's notice. To complicate matters, a neighborhood thief and troublemaker, Dixon Hightower, has escaped from police custody. With only her imperious nature and the force of her convictions, can Miss Julia create the wedding of her dreams for Binkie and Coleman? It's a thin but spirited romp, like a village cozy without the unpleasantness of a murder
Another winner for Miss Julia!
Loved reading this book, it is so funny.
if you haven't met Miss Julia yet..please do so. She is something serious. She's always on an adventure, and you have lots of laughs along the way!

Enjoyed the book - light, easy reading. The only one I wanted to read while I was down with the flu because it was so pleasant and nontaxing.
