To take her mind off the fact that Lloyd is about to move out and Sam is off on a Holy Land tour, Miss Julia undertakes to remodel and redecorate her house. But before she can even pick a color scheme, PI J. D. Pickens goes missing while on his latest investigative job, and an injured man fitting his description is being detained in West Virginia. With Etta Mae in tow, Miss Julia must race to his rescue, tangling with a backwoods, snake-handling sheriff in the process.

Back in Abbotsville, wealthy eccentric Agnes Whitman has returned to town with a following of misfits who are intent, it seems, on converting the naïve young carpenter who works for Julia.  She, however, is equally intent on keeping him out of the clutches of people who are covered with tattoos and pierced with pins, bolts, and screws from one end to the other.

Miss Julia is one lady who won’t waste time watching paint dry—no matter what shade of beige is the latest rage.

A new Miss Julia novel from New York Times bestselling author Ann B. Ross is a special treat for her devoted fans, as well as for those new to the adventures of the titular senior citizen.

    " Hard to beat "Miss Julia" for an entertaining read. A delightful character surrounded by others just as interesting. Always into something . . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 2/10/2014

    " Kind of simple without too much real excitement. It had some good points. Miss Julia was a good person trying to help her friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Namedoris Powell | 2/7/2014

    " I love the Miss Julia books. I have read them all. This one is like all the rest, but I feel comfortable with the character, and it is like visiting an old friend. This book has snake handling and tattooing and body piercing in it which adds to the interest. It also has an hilarious scene where Miss julia and Etta Mae put on a kidnapping from a hospital. If you have not read the series, I would recommend starting with book 1. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Skarshaug | 1/27/2014

    " I find myself laughing out loud when reading Ann B Ross. Her books are filled with hilariously ridiculous situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 1/22/2014

    " Slower start than the previous dozen books...but Miss Julia doesn't fail in her outlandish capers and escapades. Enjoyable and fun--just perfect for reading while drinking peach iced tea! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/19/2014

    " Thoroughly enjoyable! I am so glad that in 2004 I was attracted to 3 books on a library shelf - the first 3 books in the Miss Julia series. This is the thirteenth book and a lot of fun. I didn't even peek ahead this time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/10/2014

    " I do love Miss Julia. She and Etta Mae are at it again. There's a road trip, a missing Mr. Pickens, a cult, some snake handling, and plenty of sweet tea. This one goes down as one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/21/2013

    " Miss Julia is off again and another hare-brained adventure along with snake handlers and body mutilators. Lots of chuckles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/28/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 11/7/2013

    " "Rescue" is the newest title in the delightful "Miss Julia" series. This book, as well as the other titles in the series, provides lots of fun and laughs from the exploits of Miss Julia, her family and friends. Each time that I read one of these books, I think of the "I Love Lucy" tv series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 10/9/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 4/11/2013

    " The yearly release of the new Miss Julia book has become an event I truly look forward too because I adore this series. This book was good but I felt like the "mystery" aspect of it wasn't up to snuff and fully explored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara Choate | 11/17/2012

    " I found this book absolutely charming. I have not read any others in the series, and I haven't decided whether to do read more or not; however, this book and its main character really hit the spot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 10/14/2012

    " Excellent summer read - if you like Southern and mysteries - this was a joy to read. (Along the lines of the Mitford series in that you don't have to worry about language, and other themes...) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/14/2012

    " Loved this one-best one in the series I've read in years. It made me laugh in all the right places, hard to put down, and no plot holes I could tell. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy Adams | 6/7/2012

    " These books are okay. Not great literature, but they don't claim to be. I read them more out of habit because I have read most of the others. 2.5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 5/27/2012

    " Miss Julia is definitely growing on me. This one was funnier that previous ones, and also less plausible (the whole sheriff in WVA thing). From the way it ended, though, I feel this may be the last book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/11/2012

    " Miss Julia, is always, awesome!! Such a fun read, and I love how she loves little Loyd now with all her heart. "
