Review: Miss Julia to the Rescue

December 1, 2015

Miss Julia to the Rescue

Hazel Marie’s husband, private investigator J. D. Pickens, has gone to West Virginia to work on a case but no one’s heard from him for days.  Hazel Marie is getting worried but there’s not much she can do with young twins to take care of.  When Miss Julia gets an odd phone call from J. D., she decides to take action and enlists Etta Mae Wiggins to help her rescue J. D.  The problem is, they’re really not sure where he is.

Things are hopping in Abbotsville as well.  Agnes Whitman has come to town and brought a strange religion with her.  She’s looking for new members and may be trying to recruit someone Miss Julia knows.  Can Miss Julie rescue him as well?

Miss Julia to the Rescue by Ann B. Ross was another fun book in the Miss Julia series.  For those who don’t know, Miss Julia is a prim and proper Southern woman who has had to learn to accept a lot of changes.  Change isn’t always easy for her but it’s opened up her world.  With the best of intentions, she always finds herself in the middle of things.  I find the Miss Julia books to be quick, fun reads and this one really hit the spot for me.  It was just what I needed when I read it.

    Those character names sure do sound Southern! :–)

    Not very familiar with the “Southern” characters other than what I’ve read about. Sound different though!

    I used to love these books. I could use a light read because I can’t focus on anything!

    I remember enjoying a Miss Julia book years ago. Could be time to try another – this sounds like fun!

    There’s a term for stories in which average citizens end up doing investigative work. Is it cozy mystery? Something like that, maybe?

    This sounds like such fun, Kathy! I love mysteries like this now and then. I haven’t read this series before, but it sounds like I should check it out.

    I haven’t read a cozy mystery in a long time. Just the cover on this book tells me it’s a fun read. 🙂

    Miss Julia books are perfect reads for a lazy, rainy day.

    I could tell by the names that this was a book set in the south. I love the southern books you’ve steered me to. Now I need to check out Miss Julia. Thanks Kathy.

    I always think I’d like this series. I need to go and check whether I have the first one on my wish list!
