Overview

It's "I Do!" and "I Didn't!" in Ann B Ross's new Miss Julia adventure

Sometimes even Miss Julia just wants to go to bed and hide under the covers. Her husband, Sam, wants them to attend mar­riage enrichment classes. Could their marriage be in a poor state? Even worse, the psychologist leading the sessions is Dr. Fred Fowler-a man Miss Julia could go forever without seeing again and one she'd certainly rather not introduce to Sam.

But she can't stay in bed for long, even if she wants to. Someone has knocked Francie Pitts in the head and put her in the hospital. Francie didn't see her attacker, but she sure smelled her. She rec­ognized Etta Mae Wiggins's perfume, Shania Twain by Stetson. It's up to Miss Julia to clear the air.

As if playing detective wasn't enough, Miss Julia still needs to show Sam that there's life left in their marital batteries-even if it means his are going to need some recharging. Perhaps a bit of Shania Twain might just solve all her problems.

Readers flock to Ann B. Ross and her popular southern heroine. Miss Julia Renews Her Vows is filled with the wit, sass, and quirky charm her readers have grown to love, and is poised to hit the bestseller list.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Southern flower Miss Julia re-materializes in her droll 11th adventure, and this time out, the busybody is as busy as ever: she wraps up some business from Miss Julia Delivers the Goods by making sure thrice married rogue Mr. Pickens settles down with Hazel Marie, who is pregnant with their twins. She also contends with the return of rival doyenne Francie Pitts and puts on her detective hat to clear the name of her friend and hired help, Etta Mae Wiggins, who’s accused of burglary and assaulting Francie. Meanwhile, Sam, Julia’s long-suffering husband, has the audacity to suggest marriage counseling. Worse, the shrink is a man from her past—Dr. Fred Fowler, a “Christian psychologist with thirty years of experience in rekindling the flame of Christ-like love in limping marriages.” Can feigning the flu save her from a confrontation and, gasp, rekindle their passion? And does Francie have designs on Sam? Ross answers these questions in trademark tart fashion. Series fans will have a ball, but those unfamiliar should definitely start with an earlier volume. (Apr.)

    A charmer

    Miss Julia warns Mr. Pickens that he better not break the heart of her late husband's mistress four months pregnant Hazel Marie. Pickens, married three times, swears they will marry. Hazel Marie's son Lloyd is elated with his new daddy while Miss Julia and her second husband Sam plan a bridal party though the bride is not invited as the hostess lies to her guests that Hazel Marie married in San Francisco a few months ago.

    Pastor Larry Ledbetter invites Sam and Julia to a marriage counseling seminar hosted by a Christian shrink Dr. Fred Fowler. Sam agreed, but Julia is panicked that Fred is the host. After her cheating first husband died, Fred was nice to lonely grieving Julia until they began kissing in the chapel; Ledbetter caught them. Fred blamed Julia. She fears Sam's reaction to her being labeled a loose woman.

    The bridal party is a success although home nursing helper Etta Mae Wiggins is late. Everyone accepts why Hazel Marie is not there as she had a doctor's appointment and that she and Mr. Pickens married. Soon afterward to get out of going to Fred's seminar Julia claims to be ill and bedridden; and Etta Mae calls Julia from jail asking for Binkie the lawyer. She was accused by her client Francie Pitts of knocking her out and stealing a bracelet. Miss Julia continues to dodge Fred while working on proving Etta Mae's innocence.

    Miss Julia is her usual flustered self managing to make a mountain out of a mole hill to the delight of her myriad of fans. As always, the support cast is strong as they enhance the heroine's fears and shenanigans while she also takes care of her friends and family. Although. Miss Julia's behavior re not telling Sam the truth lacks her usual ethical fortitude, readers will let that slide as her escapes make for a fine cozy.

    Miss Julia Renews Her Vows by Ann B. Ross

    Miss Julia Renews Her Vows by Ann B. Ross
    Hardcover Release Date April 6, 2010

    This is the 11th book in the Miss Julia series and it's another wild ride for Miss Julia and her friends. First off they have to get Hazel Marie and Mr.Pickens wed ASAP because she is expecting twins and pass off a story of an earlier wedding, then an old "friendemy" of Julia's, Francie Pitts, returns to town after her 5th or 6th husband dies and accuses Julia's friend Etta Mae Wiggins of assault and robbery, and Julia's new husband Sam signs up for a class at the church for marriage counseling to rekindle their flames and the shrink running the class is someone from Julia's past. Julia pretends to be ill so she can miss the first class, but as things start to escalate with Francie, Miss Julia just has to get involved and get everything straightened out.

    The witty dialogue, the quirky characters are all back and this is another fine Miss Julia story. If you are a fan of this series you will be happy with this next edition. If you haven't read the series you should really start with book one Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind as each books builds from the one before.

    Ann Ross has done it again!

    Another wonderful and funny story about Miss Julia, her family and friends. This winter I introduced another friend to this zany and cleverly written series. My friend called me several times in tears, laughing about a an episode, event, or just the wonderful writing.

    This is an unimaginably racist and sexist book. The black characters all but shuck and jive. The main character is appalled at the fact that a woman of 40 would want a traditional wedding with a white dress and attendants. And the book was written in 2010! Do people in South Carolina really think like this? I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters I was so turned off.

    When it comes to someone who Miss Julia cares for, she stops for nothing to right the wrong. Whether getting rid of a so-called church psych.,, or heiping Etta Mae be free of false charges pressed against her. Read it you will enjoy.

    Another madly delightful read

    This book may not be the best starting point for new readers to the Miss Julia series but it is a fun read. This pillar of her community juggles problems with the style of an seasoned southern belle and the slight of hand of a magician. The only concern this sexagenarian can't handle with aplomb is the question of why her husband of less than a year wants to attend marriage counseling classes that seem to be focused on a subject better left in the bedroom. As this question haunts her, she deftly spins a cover story for Hazel Marie's extremely premature twins on one hand while defending Etta Mae Wiggins against charges of assault and robbery with the other. I recommend that new readers go back to the beginning with Miss Julia Speaks Her Minds and hold on to your hat

    I love to visit Miss Julia!

    Miss Julia is a matchmaker extraordinaire But she has a few secrets she wants to keep hidden from her new husband. Things that happened when she was a widow, before she met Sam. Etta Mae is being gossiped about by a client that many have bad memories of from her past. Hazel Marie and J.D. Pickens are off honeymooning while they wait for their twins to be born. then Dr. Fred Fowler blows into town to offer advice on "flaming the fires" of a happy marriage. Although he himself has never been married, he has lots of advice for others. He also has a secret that Julia is terrified he will spill, and she begins to think that her husband Sam is less than happy with their marital "fires". Lots of small town antics and suspicions ensue on the way to the final revelations.
    I love the small town atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyed this trip into Abbotsville!

    Always a Must Miss Julia

    Any fan of Miss Julia will of course love the latest book. It is not necessary to have read all of the Miss Julia series books to enjoy any one of them. It does help though in endearing yourself deeply with the characters as the story line grows. Miss Julia is one character that I am deeply sorry that a woman's network hasn't picked up for TV as men, women, & children I feel sure would or could enjoy Miss Julia and those she encounters in her life.
