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!
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.
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.
With devoted fans across the country, Miss Juliathat endearingly sharp-tongued southern belle of a certain agehas no shortage of admirers. But in Miss Julia Meets Her Match, our feisty heroine must come to terms with her most ardent admirer of all: longtime beau Sam Murdoch, who wants to tie the knot. While its hard to resist Sams charm, Miss Julia isn't about to give up her independence so easily. After all, there are plenty of other matters that require her attention, including a Holy Land theme park to be built on her property, a possible affair between the mayor and the preacher's secretary, and the arrival of her housekeeper Lillian's five-year-old pistol of a great-granddaughter. In the midst of all the commotion, can her cool-as-a-cucumber head help her heart make the decision of a lifetime?
