Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

I only wish Ann Ross could write faster! Since the day I introduced my 84 year old mother to this series, she has eagerly read each book until now she has read the entire series and is hoping for more. I love to hear her tell me about the latest mischief Miss Julia and Hazel Marie are up to.

an absolute delight - if you're looking for some fun reading this light hearted mystery may be perfect for you!
Full of gumption and snark, miss julia is an inspiration (and occasional exasperation but overall a great read!
