Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The nineteenth installment of the beloved and New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series With her husband Sam off on a trip to Europe, Miss Julia reckons it's about time to roll up her sleeves and be of some use to her community. It's then that she hears that the nosy do-gooder Madge Taylor and the new pastor Rucker are embarking on a mission to buy up the vacant house next door to Hazel Marie and establish a group home for wayward teenagers. No stranger to taking in the down-and-out herself, Miss Julia is shocked to learn Madge and the pastor are keeping the project a secret. When Miss Julia and Hazel Marie start investigating, though, they uncover a far less philanthropic plot for the house that even Madge doesn't know about--one that could change the quiet, peaceful neighborhood forever. Miss Julia must band together with friends and neighbors to take on nosy Madge and her steamrolling plans, while still being helpful to those in need in another entertaining installment of Ann B. Ross's bestselling series"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 February #2
    If septuagenarian Miss Julia aged in real time since the first installment in Ross' best-selling series, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind (1999), she'd be practically a nonagenarian by now. In her nineteenth adventure, she faces down a challenge from do-gooder Madge Taylor, who, with the help of the new pastor, plans to set up a group home for at-risk teenage boys. All well and good, except that the plan flouts local zoning ordinances, and, what's worse, the house intended to shelter the boys will disrupt and degrade the neighborhood. In particular, it will disrupt the lives of Hazel Marie and the rest of Miss Julia's beloved surrogate family. As she works to overturn Madge's plans, Miss Julia finds herself straddling a fine line between NIMBY and Christian values. On another front, her inveterate meddling almost costs her a friend. Competitive party-giving and a Great Dane in need of a home add touches of humor. Readers familiar with Miss Julia's previous outings will feel right at home. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
