Overview

Miss Julia faces a double dose of trouble-this time right under her own roof. Don't miss the newest,  Miss Julia Raises the Roof, coming April 2018 from Viking. 

Miss Julia's iron will and kind heart have assured her a spot among the most beloved characters of Southern literature. In her latest adventure, Miss Julia whisks Hazel Marie off to the doctor when the latter admits she's been feeling poorly. The news floors them both: Hazel Marie is pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, she's also just sent her beau, Mr. Pickens, packing. Miss Julia needs a plan-and fast. So when Sam's house is robbed, Miss Julia declares that only J. D. Pickins, P.I., can get his things back. Playing Cupid and solving the crime might seem like a tall order but readers everywhere know that Miss Julia always delivers the goods.

As always a delightful adventure with Miss Julia. This book seemed to have more depth to it than previous books in series.

This was an enjoyable, easy read. While I have enjoyed all of the Miss Julia books, some were getting too far out. This one stayed within the "reasonable to believe" range without losing the charm of its characters.

This is Anne Ross's 10th book and every one of them are good. I love Miss Julia Delivers the Goods. Hazel Marie, Miss Julia, Private eye J.D. Pickens and Hazels wayward love all keep us in a mystery when the town has suffered a heist. Once again Miss Julia as they say will deliver the goods and get to the bottom of this mystery. If you love Murder She Wrote then you will love Ann Ross series of Miss Julia.

Just when you think Hazel Marie can't upend Miss Julia's life anymore than she already has, she does! Worried that Hazel will leave town and take Little Lloyd with her, Miss Julia is back, poking her nose into the lives of those she loves, well-meaning as always. There's a little mystery as well, as Sam's former home is ransacked and the book he is working on of the history of the county is at risk.

I thought the last book in the series was a bit off -- the problem Miss Julia faced (an evil developer) didn't register with me. But in Miss Julia Delivers the Goods, our heroine faces two problems that hit closer to home -- and will resonate more with fans. A robber steals much of the material Miss Julia's husband Sam is using to write a legal history of the county in which he practiced law before his retirement. And Hazel Marie (whose relationship to Miss Julia is well known to readers of this series) has a medical problem that won't go away any time soon. Plus, Hazel Marie has ended her relationship with commitment-phobic J.D. Pickens and Miss Julia wants to see them together again. Hazel Marie is even threatening to leave town -- with her son Lloyd in tow -- and Miss Julia's world would be crushed if that happened to her little family.Miss Julia brings her A-game to these problems in her own inimitable way. Fun and heartwarming, Miss Julia Delivers the Goods delivers the goods for readers.12-22-2009

Miss Julia's back and in tip-top form! For anyone who gets a kick out of unbending, morally upright, elderly southern women, the Miss Julia series is for you. In this episode, Miss Julia must fix a break-up between Hazel Marie and Mr. Pickens without much cooperation from either party. There's also the question of who broke into Sam Murdoch's house and trashed most of his book research. Miss Julia spends lots of time racing from one end of the county to the other trying to resolve things. Still, as in all good Miss Julia books, all is revealed and fixed in the end with the promise of more to come. For a good chuckle, give it a read.

Miss Julia is always good for a dose of Southern charm, manners, and lessons on the proper way for a lady to comport herself. In this episode, Miss Hazel Marie finds herself "in the family way" without benefit of the propriety of matrimony. Miss HM has sent Mr. Pickens (her erstwhile suitor) packing, and refuses to have anything to do with him, or to tell him of his impending fatherhood.The both of them are concerned, naturally, about Hazel Marie's reputation in this small town, but HM swears Miss Julia to privacy. The zany schemes for keeping her 'condition' hidden from the busybodies, and how and what she is going to explain to her son Lloyd, are quite entertaining. If you're a fan of southern cozies, this is one for you. If you prefer your tea unsweetened, this one may be over the top.

Miss Julia is her usual self in this novel. She still has a hard time keeping a secret. Enjoyable reading with a predictable outcome!

A thoroughly enjoying read. Fans of Miss Julia and the gang will have a great time. Everyone is back and boy is it a mess. But don't worry, you can rely on Miss Julia to get everything back on track.

This is another cute story following the antics of an older woman named Miss Julia. Miss Julia has recently remarried. Her husband has been working on the history of their town. He has kept his home as a place to work from during the day. All of his files are stolen and a little mystery continues for a while until Miss Julia helps get to the bottom of what is really going on. While this is going on, she's also trying to help Hazel (who was the mistress of Miss julia's first husband) . Actually Hazel and her son live with Miss Julia and are like close family to her. Miss Hazel was going with JD Pickens, a private investigator, and just recently left him because he would not commit to marriage with her. Now she finds out her mysterious illness is really morning sickness, due to her pregnancy, which JD knows nothing about. She is pregnant with twins . There are a lot of funny things which always happen when Miss Julia is trying to help out. This is a typical Miss Julia story. It's cute, often has you laughing at the things that happen to her. While they are often simple stories, they are always uplifting, for she's always trying to help others stay positive.

These are the best books! May be for the 40 and over crowd. Miss Julia is so gusty. I can't wait to see what she is up to in every adventure.I can't wait to buy the next one to see what happens to Hazel Marie.

This was my first book in the Miss Julia series by Ann Ross. I have throughly enjoyed the read and plan to read all in the series. Ms. Ross keeps you entertained and wondering "what will happen next". Being from the South,(North Carolina), I feel like I know Miss Julia personally. She is the embodiment of a Southern lady. Her particular concern for Hazel Marie and Lloyd are touching given the way their relationship started, and speaks to Miss Julia's character. She wants what's best for the people she loves and will do almost anything to make it happen! A good summer time read.
