Summary, etc.: "In this latest installment of the Miss Julia series, Miss Julia has decided to stop meddling in other peoples' lives. But soon she is called on to help when Mildred's grandchild, whom she has never met, shows up unexpectedly. Miss Julia has experience dealing with children dropped on doorsteps, and sweeps in to lend a hand. But there's something just a bit strange about the child, and Miss Julia can't quite put her finger on what it is"--

    Thirty years after New York Times best-selling author Ross debuted her beloved series (in Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, 1999), Miss Julia continues to, well, speak her mind in the charming latest installment. Miss Julia Murdoch has made a promise to herself: she's getting out of the "knowing-what's-best business" and letting people fend for themselves. But what is she to do when her next-door neighbor has family drama that is more than one person can handle on her own? Or when she finds out dear Etta Mae is facing potential unemployment? Miss Julia can't just stand idly by! Soon she is caught up in helping her friends overcome their obstacles, proving that when it comes to friendship, Miss Julia knows a thing or two. Written with Ross's signature Southern charm and wit, the newest Miss Julia will delight long-time fans of the series and will entice new readers to get to know her. Perfect as a standalone, this is definitely one to have on libraries' contemporary-fiction shelves. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
