The delightful final installment of the beloved and New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series.
Wedding fever hits Abbotsville and several of Miss Julia’s friends have plans to tie the knot. But, as usual, nothing is so simple. Christy Hargrove suddenly gives up a lifelong dream and drops out of medical school to marry, Helen Stroud and Thurlow Jones decide to change their commercial arrangement into a marital one, and, to Miss Julia’s consternation, Lillian, her housekeeper and closest companion, is considering a less-than-romantic offer to wed a local businessman who turns courting into a job interview. And then there’s LuAnne who just wants to be married, and Janelle who doesn’t.
Miss Julia wants to properly celebrate each ceremony, insofar as anyone will let her. But Helen wants a private, even secretive, wedding; Christy’s fiancé wants a destination wedding, and Lillian can’t decide if she wants a wedding at all. In the middle of it all, a strange figure keeps showing up in town, streaking across lawns and vandalizing the gardens of Miss Julia’s neighbors. Abbotsville’s liveliest resident finds herself trying to solve it all—matters of the heart and petty crime alike—and once again save the day.
My Rating: 4 Stars!
I have been a fan of Miss Julia a very long time. I own them all and they sit proudly on my shelves. Ann B. Ross says she is not a funny person, but she sure makes for a hilarious good time with her Miss Julia books. I love each one on its own merit. I read sections aloud to my husband and anyone else who will listen. I am from SC and still live here, not very far from the author and I am familiar with all her southern colloquillisms. (Sp?) I love these folks so much and so much hate saying goodbye to them, for the fly leaf states that this is the finale. Alas! What will we do without a new Miss Julia book to read every April? I look forward to each new release all year. Not to be missed. Well done!
