    • Abstract:
      Summary: Miss Julia's regular doctor has gone on vacation, leaving a replacement in his stead. Never one to miss an opportunity to entertain-- or size up-- a newcomer, Miss Julia invites Dr. Don Crawford and his painfully shy wife, Lauren, to dinner. While Miss Julia and Sam both note Lauren's obvious lack of social skills, it's her friends Hazel Marie and Binkie that pick up on some of Dr. Crawford's less palatable qualities. Meanwhile, Lloyd has gotten his first car, and LuAnne, fresh off her divorce, has started a job at the local funeral home and is in urgent need of an occupation-appropriate makeover. -- adapted from jacket

Booklist Reviews 2019 March #2

In the latest installment in Ross' popular, long-running cozy series about well-meaning meddler Miss Julia, the heroine becomes concerned when her regular doctor goes on an extended vacation, and she senses that his replacement may not be what he seems. Dr. Crawford and his painfully shy wife, Lauren, do not fit into the close-knit community, and Julia is determined to root out why. Meanwhile, she's also busy keeping up with the lives of her friends and family. There's Lloyd, who's learning how to drive and how to navigate teenage-girl drama; LuAnne, who has taken a job at the funeral home, where she must tone herself down; and neighbor Mildred, whose husband had a heart attack in bed. Plus, Julia has decided to try her hand at flipping a ramshackle house. With Miss Julia novels now numbering 20, her faithful readers will relish the latest tale about Ross' characters navigating in quirky, complicated, and ultimately affirming situations.

Bestseller Ross's winning 21st mystery set in Abbotsville, N.C. (after 2018's Miss Julia Raises the Roof), finds Miss Julia beside herself with what-ifs after her personal physician, Bob Hargrove, tells her that he's going on a months-long vacation. Bob has hired a fill-in doctor, Don Crawford, but Miss Julia won't be satisfied till she vets the new man herself, so she hosts a small dinner party whose guests include Don and his wife, Lauren, and two couples she and her husband, Sam, are close to. Reviews afterward are mixed, but Don seems generally okay, while everyone feels Lauren is in dire need of socialization. Meanwhile, 15-year-old Lloyd Pickens's dad, PI J.D. Pickens, plans to buy him a car, another source of worry for Miss Julia, and Lloyd is also dealing with the horrors of a Sadie Hawkins Day dance. Soon enough, there are signs of nefarious activity involving Don, and the end results are very bad indeed. Miss Julia is not as savvy this time as she usually is, but she's still a true delight. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (Apr.)
