Overview

Fan favorite Etta Mae Wiggins takes center stage in the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series



Bestselling author Ann B. Ross is back with another lively adventure set in Miss Julia’s Abbotsville. For the first time, though, she writes from the perspective of another resident: the hardscrabble, heart-of-gold Etta Mae Wiggins. Etta Mae is frustrated with her trailer-park life and her no-good family, and she has big dreams for something better. Working as the home nurse for the elderly but wealthy Howard Connard, Senior, she finally sees her chance—with her sexy curves and infectious charm, Etta Mae is determined to become his wife. Unfortunately, Connard’s scheming, money-hungry son and stuck-up daughter-in-law are equally determined to make sure she doesn’t. To make matters worse, Etta Me’s exhusband Skip (her first ex, that is) has shown up with a winning lottery ticket in his hand and local thugs hot on his heels. Plus, her dreamy former flame, officer Bobby Lee, keeps popping up to remind her that she’s not over him yet. In the middle of all this mayhem, Etta Mae has to get that marriage license—before it’s too late!



A hilarious wild goose chase that takes us from the mansions of Abbotsville to the trailer park that Etta Mae calls home, this book is filled with familiar faces (including Miss Julia, who narrates the first chapter), features Ann Ross’s signature wit and southern charm, and will appeal to fans of the beloved series and newcomers alike.

In the 16th installment of theAbbotsville novels, Miss Julia steps to the margins so sexy Etta Mae Wiggins,collector of Barbies and lover of men, can enter the spotlight.Etta Mae, just 30 and twicedivorced, wants a little respect from the blue-nosed ladies of the garden club;she aspires to greater things than life in a trailer park and hard hours as ahome health care assistant. Rich old Mr. Howard Connard is recovering from astroke with her patient help and has asked her to marry him; they're secretlyplanning the society wedding of her dreams. Then Mr. Connard Junior comes totown, barring Etta Mae from contact with his father, whom he's shipping off toan old folks home. Etta Mae needs to marry Mr. Howard within a day. If only herex-husband Skip didn't show up at her double-wide, hiding out from thugs tryingto steal his winning lottery ticket. And then a few hours later, she discoversJunior unconscious on her couch, his head banged in (requiring lots ofconversations with the sheriff, which she just doesn't have time for). Thoughthere are amusing coming and goings in Abbotsville, too often Ross uses obviousshortcuts to build her characters—Etta Mae's Kathie Lee Gifford dress fromWal-Mart, her collector NASCAR Barbie—which results in a caricature instead ofa sympathetic portrait of her heroine. A slapstick lingerie shower,featuring vengeful hillbillies and a drunk Miss Julia, is followed by a (moreage-appropriate) happy ending for our Etta Mae.Much of the same Southern-friedslapstick from Ross; only for fans of the series.
