  • “Ross allows the reader to laugh gently at feisty, opinionated Miss Julia while thoroughly enjoying the view through her eyes.” Booklist

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clare | 2/20/2014

    " The heroine of this series is eccentric but smart. She is prickly but has solid relationships with a few key people. She respects intelligence but has little patience for people who are inconsiderate, take shortcuts or do not use their brains. I find her amusing and the plots nicely woven. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Sprafke | 2/11/2014

    " I enjoyed this fun story. I enjoyed this as an audiobook and the fact that the narrator sounds like Blanche from Golden Girls just made it that much better :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 2/5/2014

    " Ok, I'm hooked on the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 1/20/2014

    " I enjoyed the character Julia. Verrrry sloooow moving though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 1/16/2014

    " I thought this was a very cute book, and wouldn't mind picking up one of the others in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 1/12/2014

    " Ha. These books are so funny and silly. A good light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/12/2014

    " Lots of fun reading about how Miss Julia solves the case in spite of the private detective she hires, and in spite of the federal investigators working on the case. A delightful opportunity to get to know Miss Wiggins better, and Lloyd is his usual precious insightful self. I missed more of Sam, Hazel Marie and Mr. Pickens, and Lillian gets less attention as well. But, a fun read nevertheless, and of course I've already started the next! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/9/2014

    " This was a fun book to read. It is just a cute story. It is the first of her books I have read and she obviously has written a bunch of books about the character in this book. It's just a quick fun read. Just right for vacation reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/28/2013

    " The more I read about Miss Julia, the more I love her and these books. They are an easy and fun read and they make me laugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy McC. Mc.C | 12/19/2013

    " I hope if I live to be elderly, I am as feisty and outspoken as Miss Julia. I listened to this book and the narrator's voice was perfect. There were times I was laughing right out loud. Sometimes you just need a book to be entertaining, and this was such a book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irishfan | 12/13/2013

    " This was probably my least favorite of the series so far. The situations were hard to believe considering the age of the "heroine". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Summerford | 12/13/2013

    " I just finished this book and it had me rolling! Miss Julia is CRAZY! "

    " eh...it was alright, easy to read..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 4/26/2013

    " I hadn't read this series for a while, and really enjoyed picking it up again. Past details of the inter-relationships came back to me as the story moved along, and it had a bit of that "crazy Florida" flavor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine Shandra | 4/5/2013

    " This is a cute, fun, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steph | 3/14/2013

    " good, quick easy read. not my favorite Miss Julia book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 3/5/2013

    " The ending was pretty good, but it was a long slog getting there; the book was driven mostly by the (Florida) setting and situation details, rather than plot or character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 1/16/2013

    " The events and how perfectly they all in to order were a bit outlandish but the book was still fun to read and had several laugh out loud moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 11/18/2012

    " This is my second favorite in the Miss Julia series. It's just hilarious! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 3/7/2012

    " I only have one Miss Julia book left to read.........it will be a long wait till April 2010 when the next installment in Miss Julia's colorful life is on the shelves. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth Payne | 12/7/2011

    " Needed a no-brainer to read and sometimes enjoy Miss Julia. Didn't really like this one - too far-fetched. Miss the feel of the town. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bunny | 8/16/2011

    " so funny I laughed out loud "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 6/19/2011

    " I learned that when we do our best to follow the Gospel, the Lord steps in and helps us accomplish our tasks and blesses us with what He knows is best for us, even when we are not perfect. Also, our example can have a profound influence for good on those around us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Goddardcc | 6/18/2011

    " Always love the Miss Julia books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 5/6/2011

    " Miss julia is the classic example of if you want things done and done right do it yourself.
    She can always make me laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dona | 2/28/2011

    " Miss Julia stories are always fun, although this was probably my least favorite. Miss Julia is almost scary at times in her almost militant handling of the alcoholic detective she hires. Favorite scene is Miss Julia's first trip to Target and her first purchase of pants! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicky | 8/2/2010

    " I've listened to all these books on audio and enjoy them so much. Miss Julia is a spit-fire and opinionated but has such a good heart, when she isn't judging everyone! I enjoy the person who does the audio. Maybe that is half the fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/6/2010

    " I learned that when we do our best to follow the Gospel, the Lord steps in and helps us accomplish our tasks and blesses us with what He knows is best for us, even when we are not perfect. Also, our example can have a profound influence for good on those around us. "
