Miss Julia faces a double dose of trouble—this time right under her own roof!

Miss Julia’s iron will and kind heart have assured her a spot among the most beloved characters of Southern literature. In her latest adventure, Miss Julia whisks Hazel Marie off to the doctor when the latter admits she’s been feeling poorly. The news floors them both: Hazel Marie is pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, she’s also just sent her beau, Mr. Pickens, packing. Miss Julia needs a plan-and fast. So when Sam’s house is robbed, Miss Julia declares that only J. D. Pickins, a private investigator, can get his things back.

Playing Cupid and solving the crime might seem like a tall order, but listeners everywhere know that Miss Julia always delivers the goods.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 2/17/2014

    " So far, a worthy addition to this excellent series of comic novels of manners set in North Carolina with a proper but sharp-tongued sexagenerian heroine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelley | 2/4/2014

    " Another great book in this series! Miss Julia saves the day yet again. Now I can't wait for the next one to be published. This will cover the "Part of a Series" category in Book Bingo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/1/2014

    " I picked this up at the libarary not knowing it was part of a series, let alone it was #10! I wasn't lost at all and never felt like she had to force a back story to keep me up to speed with the past nine. It could have been a stand alone book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 1/27/2014

    " Miss Julia has unpleasant events thrust upon her, but she deals with them in her gracious Southern manner, while taking people down a peg. This book contains a criminal mystery involving the legal history book her husband is writing and ends with a surprise. Love these books and her hilarious way of dealing with her neighbors. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Ross | 1/18/2014

    " Another easy summer read, this was a little slower than the others in the series or maybe it was because I read the large print version! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne Phillips | 1/6/2014

    " Another good Miss Julia read. Ann Ross does a fine job with the series. She always varies the adventure, but keep the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 1/4/2014

    " This was another good Miss Julia book. The titles of the books following kind of give the game away as to what happens next, but I look forward to reading them! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/2/2014

    " I'm losing some of my interest in Miss Julia's antics and the books are becoming rather predictable. I did like this one better than some of the earlier ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maura | 1/2/2014

    " This is such a fun series - I know there's got to be another one coming since we are left hanging at bit with the ending to this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Mancini | 12/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dona | 12/7/2013

    " I love Miss Julia books and think Cynthia Darlow is a great narrator for this series. Of all the Miss Julia books I've read/listened to so far, this was my least favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/6/2013

    " I enjoy this series, but this one was only okay. I thought it ended abruptly, without any real resolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 12/5/2013

    " I still love Miss Julia, but I didn't quite enjoy this book as much as the rest. It didn't seem to quite end, so I hope that another book is in the works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 11/23/2013

    " I love the Miss Julia books and this was no disappointment! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 11/5/2013

    " I actually liked it more than I thought I would and maybe it was because I listened to it on CD and it was read by a lady who had a southern accent that was just right and made Miss Julia see real and like such a fun character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 10/14/2013

    " It's Miss Julia being Miss Julia. Fun but not life changing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/6/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ken McDouall | 5/10/2013

    " Miss Julia is getting tired and running out of plots. Is it time for her to retire? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean Perry | 2/8/2013

    " This was my 7th Miss Julia book and my least favorite. Who would believe that an author cld keep j.d. In the dark for 300 pages. I'm sick of pregnancy stories in books and tv. It seems when an writer doesn't have an idea they resort to a secret pregnancy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 11/9/2012

    " Like all the Miss Julia books, this was entertaining and a light read. These definitely follow a formula - somebody gets into some sort of trouble, Miss Julia gets it fixed - but it just works to make a good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 8/28/2012

    " Great finish! Loved this series - looking forward to the next, if there is one! These characters keep getting better and better! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carole | 4/30/2012

    " The Miss Julia books are not great literature, but I certainly enjoy them for a light read. Lots of quirky characters in interesting, often quirky situations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 3/30/2012

    " This is a series which starts with the delightful Miss Julia Speaks her Mind. I must say some of the books that have followed have been a little predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 3/3/2012

    " Always an enjoyable read when it comes to the character of Miss Julia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candace | 12/12/2011

    " I have loved all the Miss Julia books. This is just another one to add to my list. Always, fun and easy reads. After reading several "heavy" books, this was a relief! "

    " You just have to love Miss Julia! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saxon Bennett | 8/28/2011

    " This is fun read and the southern comedy of manners is full of laughs. It combines a romance with a mystery which makes for an amusing subplot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pilar | 7/31/2011

    " This is definitely a light-read. This is the first of this series that I have listened to. As other reviewers have noted, it is a break from heavy plotted, serious topic novels. My daughter, age 8, even got caught up in Miss Julia's meddling and shenanigans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jana | 6/28/2011

    " Just as great as the 9 before it and I'm off to find #11 right now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 5/20/2011

    " I actually liked it more than I thought I would and maybe it was because I listened to it on CD and it was read by a lady who had a southern accent that was just right and made Miss Julia see real and like such a fun character.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanmom | 5/4/2011

    " A pleasant read that includes humor and drama and mystery and romance. Lots of chuckles. The series must be read from the beginning to get the full picture. "
