Imagine Aunt Bee from The Andy Griffith Show with a lot more backbone and confidence," wrote Publishers Weekly about Miss Julia, Ann Ross's endearing Dixie doyenne of decorum. Don't miss her latest, Miss Julia Raises the Roof, coming April 2018 from Viking.

In her latest romp, Miss Julia—now Mrs. Sam Murdoch—returns from her whirlwind elopement, only to find herself roped into Hazel Marie's scheme to raise money by throwing a beauty pageant. Though it all seems a tad distasteful, it's nothing compared to the revelation that Pigeon Forge, the marriage mill across the state line that wedded Julia and Sam, might not be legitimate. And a flustered Julia can't help wondering whether she and Sam can keep up appearances before the town finds out they might be living in sin.

About the Author:

Ann B. Ross is the author of eighteen novels featuring the popular Southern heroine Miss Julia, as well as Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day, a novel about one of Abbotsville's other most outspoken residents: Etta Mae Wiggins. Ross holds a doctorate in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has taught literature at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. She lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina.

From AudioFile:

Miss Julia is fast becoming a Southern literary icon, with narrator Cynthia Darlow's excellent presentation aiding her popularity. In this outing, not only is Miss Julia questioning the validity of her wedding chapel marriage, but she's also assisting Hazel Marie, her late husband's mistress, with a beauty contest for Miss Abbot County Sheriff's Department. The usual luscious ingredients of Southern manners, sex, and modern and traditional values collide with human foibles, causing hilarious results. Darlow is splendid as she personifies Little Lloyd (a 9-year-old white boy), Miss Lillian and Leticia (Julia's African-American maid and her granddaughter), Mr. Pickens (Hazel Marie's detective/beau), and Sam (Miss Julia's intended) plus the young, unformed beauty pageant contestants. Darlow's skill lies in each character being splendid without overdoing the accent. One of Ross's best for old--and new--fans. S.G.B.
