Listener Opinions

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

    " Another good read, however, not quite as gripping and involved as those prior. Only one major plot here, concerning Little Lloyd's parentage, with a minor subplot which never really gets developed very well, concerning Miss Julia's leadership at her church. However, there is a great flashback to a story we never were told before, the family's first Christmas together, which is a wonderful sidebar taking a good chunk of the book. I'm already into the next! "

    " I listened to this book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 2/12/2014

    " I love the Miss Julia books. I've listened to several of the series now, not in any particular order, and they never fail to charm and entertain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Turyan | 2/11/2014

    " Listened to the audio book, this was very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Davis | 2/9/2014

    " This is the first one I read in the series. It got me hooked!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debra | 2/2/2014

    " The narration and time frame of this cozy was incongruous. The voice and vocabulary read like it is set in the Victorian age so imagine my surprise when pop culture references about George Clooney and Tupperware appeared. It has its moments but if it had not been a selection in one of my book clubs I probably wouldn't have finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlynn | 1/16/2014

    " I am listening to this book on my MP3 player. It was just one I grabbed off the shelf, but I guess there are about eight in this series about Miss Julia. I picked it up on a whim because the pickins are slim at our little library, but so far it's pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Meacham | 1/15/2014

    " Entertaining, as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 1/13/2014

    " This was marvelous. I have more of Ann B. Ross Miss. Julia series on the TBR shelf to enjoy. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Ward | 1/8/2014

    " Cute. Typical Southern humor. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 12/28/2013

    " Here you go Miss Julia does it again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 12/16/2013

    " This is close to a 5 star rating. The Christmas memory is worthy of it, but the reason why Brother Vern should hold everyone in his sweaty, smelly power is beyond my comprehension. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/2/2013

    " the absolute funniest book so far. I think the scene at the Passion Party was the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 11/26/2013

    " BOCD, What a wonderful series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry Coffman | 11/22/2013

    " I enjoyed this book as I have all the Miss Julia books but the character the Rev. Vern Puckett wasn't very realistic and was more like a cartoon character. It didn't seem realistic that Hazel Marie would be intimidated by this Puckett person like she was. It's still a worthwhile read though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 9/18/2013

    " Miss Julia never fails to entertain! LOVE this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/1/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book - a glimpse into the life of a wisened older woman in the midst of her second marriage. Miss Julia's life teaches of forgiveness, especially in the hardest of situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/17/2013

    " A little confusing with the flashbacks but overall a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 3/20/2013

    " so far of all the miss julia I have read this is my least favorite. Partly because of the passion party, but largely due to a big part of the book being memories from the beginning. Even though none of it is repeats from the first book, I just don't find it too captivating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snap | 2/28/2013

    " I really enjoy the Miss Julia series. Some really good Southern humor and Miss Julia is an older woman ... someone I can relate to with my advancing age! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 12/7/2012

    " These books make me giggle "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 6/26/2012

    " My favorite Miss Julia book so far. I look forward to reading more of them. I enjoyed the flashbacks to Miss Julia's first Christmas with Little Lloyd and Hazel Marie. Very touching. It's cute writing, and I like the Southern charm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 4/29/2012

    " One of the better so far in the Miss Julia series. Some laugh out loud moments when Miss Julia's home is used to host a "Passion" party and she assumes it will be all about passion fruit... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clearysage | 3/25/2012

    " Entertaining and worth the time to read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 2/13/2012

    " This book has some laugh out loud moments. After reading this one I will try another Miss Julia book. It revolves around a Southern Christian lady. Themes of redemption and the role of women in the church make it a possible book club read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 2/7/2012

    " Miss Julia made me proud this time...she took matters in her own hands and wasn't as paranoid as the last book, good for her! I also enjoyed a "look back" at how she came to enjoy Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd. Go Miss Julia~ "

    " I listened to the audio version, keeping my hands free for shelling butter beans, enjoying the readers dialect to enhance the proud, audacious character of Julia. I found myself laughing aloud. It is the only book of the series I have read/listened but will certainly try another. "

    " My favorite Miss Julia book - mainly because of the flashbacks to Miss Julia's first Christmas with Little Lloyd and Hazel Marie. Very touching. Unfortunately Ann Ross had to throw in a side story that the book could have done without. I just skipped over that part. "
