Miss Julia s wildly popular escapades have kept readers coming back again and again. In Miss Julia Meets Her Match, she finally succumbed to Sam s charms and became Mrs. Murdoch. Will marriage dampen this proper lady s sense of adventure? Fortunately for her growing legion of fans, the answer is no. In Miss Julia s School of Beauty, Hazel Marie is organizing a beauty pageant to raise money for the sheriff s department and enlists Miss Julia s help in teaching the contestants etiquette and poise. Between settling into a new, unfamiliar home and refereeing the squabbles between Sam s housekeeper, James, and her beloved Lillian, Miss Julia could use a distraction. But when Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd who are still in residence at her old homestead have a dangerous domestic mishap that only she can set right, Miss Julia packs up and moves back home, Sam in tow.

Just when everything seems to have returned to almost normal, the town erupts with rumors about a marriage mill that may be performing fraudulent ceremonies. What would the town think if they found out Sam and Miss Julia might be living in sin?

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.
