Overview

The feisty Miss Julia returns to set things right in her seventh hilarious adventure. Don't miss Ann Ross's latest, Miss Julia Weathers The Storm, coming April 2017 from Viking. 

Miss Julia has charmed and captivated fans of humorous Southern tales through six rollicking novels, and now, in Miss Julia Stands Her Ground, she faces her most daunting challenge yet. Hazel Marie’s troublemaking uncle, Brother Vernon Puckett, has just swept into town and questioned Little Lloyd’s paternity. Suddenly Miss Julia’s late husband’s estate is up for grabs, and it’s up to her to prove that the boy’s claim is legitimate. In another hilarious and heartwarming caper, Ann B. Ross proves that a little spunk and Southern charm go a long way.

From the Publisher
Praise for Ann B. Ross and the Miss Julia series:

"Ross has a gift for elevating such everyday matters as marital strife and the hazards of middle age to high comedy, while painting her beautifully drawn characters with wit and sympathy."
-Publishers Weekly

“A charming, fun adventure with new relatives, old secrets and a will putting Miss Julia and the Abbotsville regulars in a true Southern mess. I loved it!” —Duffy Brown, bestselling author of the Consignment Shop Mysteries

"Ann B. Ross develops characters so expertly, through quirks, names, and mannerisms, that they easily feel familiar as the reader is gently immersed into the world Miss Ross has created. . . . A delightful read." —Winston-Salem Journal

"Miss Julia is one of the most delightful characters to come along in years. Ann B. Ross has created what is sure to become a classic Southern comic novel. Hooray for Miss Julia, I could not have liked it more." —Fannie Flagg, author of The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion 

"Yes, Miss Julia is back, and I, for one, am one happy camper." —J. A. Jance, author of Cold Betrayal

Miss Julia and Sam must prove Little Lloyd paternity. A look back makes Miss Julia realize just how much she loves the boy regardless of Wesley Lloyd's unfaithfulness. A heartfelt, moving story line of family no matter how they are made up. Read, you just may enjoy.

Love-Love-Love this rollicking story of another of Miss Julia's escapades. This southern lady of "a certain age" knows how to live life and deal with its ups and downs - with a little help from her friends. I hope I have Miss Julia's spunk when I'm her age!

A great light read. The charactors are so believable and caring. I laughed and cried with Miss Julia and her family.

I've read and enjoyed the previous books in the series but this one was disappointing. A large part of the book is taken up with a flashback that only served to take up pages instead of to advance the plot.
