    Good book! Can't wait for next year's book

    Ann Ross writes a great story of Miss Julia. It always holds your interest. I like a continued series of the same characters and what happens next in their lives.

    Waiting for next year's edition

    A cookbook and a story all in one. It kept me busy writing off

    A cookbook and a story all in one. It kept me busy writing off recipes and putting in a self-stick photo album. I plan to try some of the recipes. I plan to share book with someone else.
    Julia means well. But her concern for Hazel Marie keeps her busy and almost got her in trouble. Once someone thought she was a witch (not going to give it away) and another she almost got kidnapped by a criminal. She ended up in middle of a sting operation.
    Hazel Marie has her hands full when her housekeeper falls down the stairs, plus two babies, and then to top it all her Uncle shows up.
    I loved the idea of the cookbook. It is a page turner all the way.

    Fun Protagonist with Southern Charm

    Miss Julia…a prime, proper southern lady with a strong well, a stern exterior and a force to be reckoned with. But underneath, a heart of gold who would do anything (and has) for the people she loves. What starts out as a seemingly calm autumn day in Abbottsville, NC, with Miss Julia enjoying her yard and newly remodeled house (well, three rooms at least), quickly turns to chaos. Her friend Hazel Marie’s housekeeper falls down the stairs and winds up bedridden. This leaves Hazel Marie to tend to him, care for her newborn twin daughters, manage the household, and cook (when she can barely boil water) all while her husband, Mr. Pickens, is away on private investigation business. Miss Julia steps in with a plan. She recruits the ladies of Abbottsville to not only share their recipes and a covered dish (as any southern lady would do during illness), but also teach Hazel Marie how to prepare the recipe. All is going according to plan until Hazel Marie’s greedy uncle, Brother Vern, an itinerant preacher shows up claiming sickness and needing his family (Hazel Marie) near. To make matters worse, Mr. Pickens has been seen driving different women around town while he was suppose to be working. Miss Julia has her hands full as she tries to bring calm and order back to the lives of her friends and her family. This time around Miss Julia’s adventure is more of a home-bound type without some of the crazy antics she has pulled in the past. However, author Ann B. Ross gives a fun look at how quickly everyday life can turn upside down and become a snowball-effect of trouble. Miss Julia continues to give advice with a sharp-tongue, but more of her tender spirit comes through this time. Ross has created a fun protagonist in Miss Julia readers can’t help but love. She may be prime and proper, but she’s had difficult times and overcame them with dignity giving readers laugh-out-loud moments along the way. All of the characters are well-developed and realistic with their flaws and emotions. Ross continues to evolve her characters with each installment keeping fans of the series anticipating the next development. MISS JULIA STIRS UP TROUBLE moves at a swift pace with the story flowing smoothly. Readers are also treated to the delicious recipes the ladies of Abbottsville provide Hazel Marie as Miss Julia receives them. The notations included with each are a cute reminder that Miss Julia is in charge. This is the 14th installment in the Miss Julia series and can be read on its own. However, I would recommend reading the series in order to fully appreciate Miss Julia and how the various characters have grown throughout the series. If you can’t read the series in order, at least try to read the first installment first to completely understand where Miss Julia began and what makes her who she is. The residents of Abbottsville are entertaining characters you will want to visit time and time again. Miss Julia is someone you’d like to live next door to as long as you had a book of proper etiquette handy at all times. MISS JULIA STIRS UP TROUBLE is a delightful read that will have you smiling from the opening page to the last paragraph. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
