    Miss Julia is the best!

    After getting back to normal following the birth of Hazel Marie’s twin daughters, Miss Julia gets an odd phone call from the twins’ private detective father, J.D. Pickens, who’s away chasing a missing person. Although she can’t be quite sure, Miss Julia thinks Mr. Pickens is in some kind of trouble. So she and her friend Etta Mae Wiggins (Ethel to Miss Julia’s Lucy) head off from North Carolina to West Virginia to find and rescue him. Then the fun ensues. Back at home, there’s another able-bodied man to rescue: Adam, the contractor who’s handling the renovations to Miss Julia and her husband Sam’s home. Miss Julia thinks he’s under the influence of a local woman whose mansion, it appears, may house a religious cult. All this adds up to great fun … humorous situations only Miss Julia could get herself into. And her adventures serve to distract her from the sad fact that Lloyd, the son of Hazel Marie and Miss Julia’s late unlamented husband, will be moving out of Miss Julia’s house. I love this series, and it’s one of the few that I collect in hardcover. They’re books to read, re-read and savor. Miss Julia is the best!

    I thought this was one of the better Miss Julia books. She is a feisty older lady who thinks the world is at her beck and call and she is not afraid to take charge to get things done. I have watched her come from a cold hearted older woman to an older woman with a warm heart for those who she really loves and for the causes she believes in. This book displayed a lot of that warmheartedness: for Sam, for Lloyd, for Lillian, for Hazel Marie and the twins, and now, J. D. Pickens. This book made me laugh out loud, and I liked that.

    With JD missing and Hazel Marie unable to go after him because of the twins, who but Miss Julia (riding shotgun for Etta Mae) would be the one to head to his rescue? From a possible cult on the outskirts of Abbotsville to Miss Julia's stint as one of the buddies in a buddy road trip, Miss Julia to the Rescue was a fun read in what has been become a very long series. It's been amazing to follow Miss Julia's growth, particularly in her love for her deceased husband's son, Lloyd. The same woman who was so worried about appearances and how to manage her household on her own has created a wonderful family unit.

    Suspenseful read, enjoyable characters but felt somewhat disparate...

    I really enjoyed this book and got through it very quickly because it built up very quickly and I kept wanting to find out what would happen next, no complaints on getting through this book!

    This was my first Miss Julia book, so I am going to start from the beginning of the series because I really enjoyed the characters and the setting.

    My only complaint is that it felt like it had two disparate stories that didn't necessarily have to go together. The first half of the book almost resolves, then a new story appears and I was still waiting for them to be tied together at the end. Hoping this isn't the case with each book, but at least it had me reading and not wanting to put the book down!

    Great storytelling, fun plot, suspenseful, funny, endearing. Miss Julia to the Rescue was one of the most eloquently written works by Ann B. Ross, and even more tightly composed than her other fantastic works. There are a great number of characters taking center stage and a number of storylines weaving together. I thought Ms. Ross spun like a boss. My only complaint was the ending. A few of the most dramatic parts of the story were left unfinished, unanswered, unresolved, and unaddressed. I had to go back and read the ending three times to make sure I hadn't miss it all some how. Maybe my Nook had malfunctioned and skipped pages (as it tends to). Overall, another great Miss Julia story that will leave you wishing for a real-life friend just like Miss Julia.

    Huge Miss Julia series fan. Well written and engaging just like all of the Miss Julia books. I did feel that Ms. Ross ran out of pages at the end of the book. Felt she ended the story quickly within a short amount of pages. However, that being said I am a huge fan and it was an enjoyable read.
