Thirty years after New York Times best-selling author Ross debuted her beloved series (in Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, 1999), Miss Julia continues to, well, speak her mind in the charming latest installment. Miss Julia Murdoch has made a promise to herself: she's getting out of the "knowing-what's-best business" and letting people fend for themselves. But what is she to do when her next-door neighbor has family drama that is more than one person can handle on her own? Or when she finds out dear Etta Mae is facing potential unemployment? Miss Julia can't just stand idly by! Soon she is caught up in helping her friends overcome their obstacles, proving that when it comes to friendship, Miss Julia knows a thing or two. Written with Ross's signature Southern charm and wit, the newest Miss Julia will delight long-time fans of the series and will entice new readers to get to know her. Perfect as a standalone, this is definitely one to have on libraries' contemporary-fiction shelves. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Ever helpful, Miss Julia steps in when a grandchild her friend Mildred has never met suddenly arrives in town, even as Mildred deals with her husband's mysterious illness. But there's just something so odd about this child. Next in a long-standing, New York Times best-selling series.

Bestseller Ross's enticing 21st mystery set in the small North Carolina town of Abbotsville (after 2019's Miss Julia Takes the Wheel) finds Miss Julia Murdoch's next-door neighbor, Mildred Allen, dealing with the declining mental faculties of her husband, Horace; the self-imposed estrangement of her daughter, Tonya, who until recently was her son, Tony; and the sudden appearance of an unknown grandchild. Naturally, Mildred turns to her friend Miss Julia for advice. Though Miss Julia has been trying lately to be less of a busybody, she can't resist lending a hand, and it doesn't take her long to realize that something about Mildred's grandchild is more than a little suspicious. Meanwhile, Miss Julia sees what she can do to help Etta Mae Wiggins, who's in danger of losing her Handy Home Helper job. Miss Julia, who has vowed to be less judgmental and opinionated, decides in the end that maybe her meddling is warranted. Never mind the minimal crime element. This amusing tale will please cozy fans. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (Apr.)
