Publisher's Summary

Miss Julia has promised her husband, Sam, to mind her own business. What a relief! She doesn't have to spring into action when a dead body is found in a toolshed six blocks from her house. Instead, she can concentrate on what's really important-like figuring out who's been passing bad checks in her name and, most important, preparing for Hazel Marie's impending due date. Then again, who else can figure out why that awful Thurlow Jones is trying to cast suspicion on someone Miss Julia feels certain is innocent? And, after all, what Sam doesn't know won't hurt him, right?

Miss Julia's investigative work on the possible murders-of her financial reputation and of the person in the toolshed-keeps her buzzing. But the sudden arrival of Hazel Marie's twins during a fierce blizzard brings a whole new set of challenges and a double helping of trouble for Ann B. Ross's indomitable southern heroine.

Always a entertaining series

What you have come to expect from Miss Julia series. Very enjoyable. I didn't start the series with the first book - but have had no issues starting several books into the series. This one does not disappoint.

As always, it's a hit!

Miss Julia and her shenanigans are always a hit. Sure to keep you entertained, even laughing out loud! Cynthia Darlow does an excellent job capturing the many characters so well. It's as if I am part of the group watching all the happenings in person!

A Must Read!

This series is an incredible book with good down to earth characters. Miss Julia never ceases to amaze me with the way she jumps right in other peoples business, as well as her own, in order to catch "whoever did it" and to right some wrongs.
