As always, Miss Julia is at her best when called upon to defend her loved ones. Hazel Marie's uncle Vernon Puckett returns to stir up trouble for Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd. He'll have to reckon with Miss Julia, though, who will do everything in her power to thwart his plans.I alternately laughed and cried as I read this book. Miss Julia's visit at the doctor's office is one of the funniest scenes in any of the books in this series. Miss Julia's extended reflections on her first Christmas with Little Lloyd and Hazel Marie were touching, and it was pleasant to revisit characters like Coleman and Binkie, who were featured in early books in the series but have only been mentioned in passing in more recent series entries.The only aspect of the book that marred my full enjoyment of the novel was an unnecessary passage describing a home sales party for personal items that, through a series of circumstances, ended up at Miss Julia's house. The scene was superfluous to the plot of the book, and it described the wares in more detail than many readers would be comfortable with.

Miss Julia and Sam must prove Little Lloyd paternity. A look back makes Miss Julia realize just how much she loves the boy regardless of Wesley Lloyd's unfaithfulness. A heartfelt, moving story line of family no matter how they are made up. Read, you just may enjoy.

Love-Love-Love this rollicking story of another of Miss Julia's escapades. This southern lady of "a certain age" knows how to live life and deal with its ups and downs - with a little help from her friends. I hope I have Miss Julia's spunk when I'm her age!

A great light read. The charactors are so believable and caring. I laughed and cried with Miss Julia and her family.

I've read and enjoyed the previous books in the series but this one was disappointing. A large part of the book is taken up with a flashback that only served to take up pages instead of to advance the plot.
