Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A local busybody and amateur sleuth, Julia Springer Murdoch tackles the disappearance of three of her friends' husbands and a plan to turn the old North Carolina courthouse into condos. Although Cynthia Darlow has read other Miss Julia novels, she doesn't sound like a native Tarheel. All of Julia's female friends sound pretty much alike, especially during rapid-fire verbal exchanges. Despite differences in social background, they all drawl out their sentences and place interrogative emphasis and extra syllables on important and final words. The Black women (who all seem to work as housekeepers) have deeper voices and poor diction. Except for references to Viagra and automobile accidents, the novel could be set in the antebellum South. Darlow keeps the tone light and quick, but the audio doesn't end quite fast enough. Simultaneous release with the Viking hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 7). (Mar.)

    Paint Miss Julia

    My favorite part was when Miss Julia, Etta Mae, and Poochie Dunn were up on the courthouse in the middle of a rain storm trying to get that statue dowm. Then Brother Vern shooting at them with a bb gun and hears a voice from above. Miss Julia paints herself with some most savory charcters.

    Highly Recommended and down to earth (southern style)

    I enjoyed this book as I have all her others. However, my experience with my order at Barnes and Noble left alot to be desired. I went into the BOOKS section (not e-books) and ordered the book. I received an e-book instead and I do not have an e-book device. I went on CHAT and explained. The man said they do not do refunds on e-books but would make an exception in this case. I ordered the paperback book and both charges show up on my account. When I access my account it says not refundable on the ebook. My account was never credited. The website and chat room need improving so that it does not happen to others. I will not use Barnes and Noble to order my books again.

    Wonderful Miss Julia!

    Ann B. Ross has a winning series here. I discovered them by accident and was that a wonderful accident! I eagerly await each new offering with Miss Julia, Sam, Lloyd, Hazel, Lillian, J.D. and all the others.

    Delightful surprise

    This light novel was a delightful surprise with a wonderful heroine getting in and out of predicaments with friends and neighbors. There are two especially funny scenes that had me convulsed with laughter. Author has written several other Miss Julia novels and I will look for them. This is escapism reading at its best and most relaxing.

    Gotta love ya, Miss Julia!!

    It is always exciting to read another book in which Miss Julia is featured. For pure escapism, this book is great. She's always doing something a bit off-beat and "crazy." Her heart is in the right place.
