Miss Julia Strikes Back
Ann B. Ross
Miss Julia, no. 8
4 out of 5
Ask anyone south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and theyll tell you: irrepressible Miss Julia is a paragon of propriety. So when some of her jewelry turns up missing after a party, it stands to reason that she reacts with no small amount of indignation. After hearing from Sergeant Bates that a Florida-based jewel thief has been fleecing homes clear across the South, theres nothing to do but to pack Little Lloyd into the car and head for Palm Beach. Now all she has to do is find a disguise, locate the perpetrators hideout, and perform a little righteous repossessionunless the feds get there first
Ms. Ross has revamped this series by using some new characters as the main co-conspirators. The old ones are conveniently out of the country. She has also given it a new setting, Florida instead of North Carolina. Good read. There is already a ninth book in the series out so Ill probably have to acquire it soon.

I wasn't prepared to be impressed by this book, but I was quickly swept into the world of Miss Julia. The author writes with convincing detail, but not so much that the story gets lost in the description. This mystery unfolded quickly, with clarity, and moved along delightfully. I was so pleasantly surprised!!

I loved the heroine, Miss Julia, and her entourage in this story---young underling Lloyd, curvy and bold Miss Wiggens, and the reforming drunk PI Mr. Tuttle. They all interacted so convincingly. The story unfolded completely naturally and believably, all under Author Ross's skilled style.

Oh, yes!!

***1/2 Three and a half stars, enthusiastically!

This wasn't as good as the first several Miss Julia books, but it was still a fun read. This book focuses on Miss Julia and Little Lloyd. It also features Eta Mae Wiggins and a new character, Mr. Tuttle. It has very few appearances of Hazel Marie, Mr. Pickens, and Sam.

Love "Miss Julia" and this was one of the more entertaining, action-packed ones. My favorite...well, until I read the next one. : )
