Publisher's Summary

A new Miss Julia novel from New York Times best-selling author Ann B. Ross is a special treat for her devoted fans as well as those new to the adventures of the titular senior citizen. This time out, the proper Southern lady has a couple doozies on her plate.

It seems that her friend Hazel’s PI husband, J.D,. has gotten himself in some trouble in West Virginia - and he’s one tirade away from landing in a jail cell. Meanwhile, a crew of misfits has followed wealthy Agnes Whitman back to Abbotsville, and they have all the makings of a crazy religious cult!

Charming Southern Series

Miss Julia is at it again and I loved every minute of it! Humor, the adventure in the ordinary, and yet not so ordinary, life of a Southerner lady.

Just plain bizarre

I spent most of the book consciously suspending disbelief that things could possibly have happened the way they did. As far as structure goes, there are two plot points, with a "spinoff" (subplot) of the second one.
First, Miss Julia and Etta Mae end up "rescuing" J. D. Pickens from police custody in West Virginia; he's in the local hospital doped to the gills, suffering from gunshot wounds. That whole mess would've been easily resolved in real life, by having Coleman ask the WV sheriff for a description of the guy they're holding as John Doe. Did he do that? Of course not! And then, not long after he's back home, Pickens is hosting a dinner party -- they way he was tossed about like a sack of potatoes by Julia and Etta Mae, he should've been in intensive care! The same sheriff who was close-mouthed to the point of being hostile later becomes a complete pussycat. Okay ...
Attention turns to the new "cult" in town ... wherein people are getting tattoos and piercings as part of a "religious" experience. Clearly Ms. Ross highly disapproves of this practice; I recommend she NOT consider any vacations to Seattle in the near future!
Sam, not being needed here for his propensities to utter "Oh, Julia!" and to initiate sexual activity, has been shipped off to the Holy Land with a church group. So, Miss Julia is re-doing the house in his absence, including a dedicated writing room as a surprise. The oh-so-nice evangelical young carpenter she's hired, and taken a liking to, goes missing, so she and Etta Mae have another zany outing to get him out of the clutches of the "cult" (and back to fundamentalist Christianity instead).
I understand that Miss Julia leads a relatively sheltered life, but she does come off here as highly judgmental, petty, and nasty. Frankly, one can probably skip this book altogether in the series, as there aren't any events that should affect future stories. Not particularly recommended, although Cynthia Darlow does her usual good job with the narration.

Always! Miss Julia and her crazy ideas keep you laughing and intrigued

Disappointing Miss Julia

What disappointed you about Miss Julia to the Rescue?

I love the series but this one fell way short. It was homophobic and anti- any religion but mainstream. Miss Julia is way better than this story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ann B. Ross again?

Yes, I'd try again.

Have you listened to any of Cynthia Darlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Cynthia Darlow was fine.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Its always good to catch up with the characters in the story.

Any additional comments?

Give us back our open-minded Miss Julia!

another great story from start to finish.

the problem I run into, is that the author's writing style, along with the narrator's narrating style, make it very difficult to stop at any point. they grip your attention and leave you feeling as though if you just hung on a few more minutes... never works. every moment is intriguing.

Miss Julia is on the way!

She never gives up. Ann B. Ross is brilliant in her portrayal of Miss Julia's boldness, and vulnerability. Another fun trip to Fiction Land.

Ms Julia

I really enjoy these books, however the southern accents are sometimes way to insultingly heavy.

As always, Miss. Julia entertains!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! The Miss Julia series is a great, light hearted, entertaining read!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. Ms. Ross comes up with excellent ways to get Miss Julia off course trying to help or fix others issues.

What does Cynthia Darlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her flawless narration and wonderful ability to channel old school, proper Southern, all the way to from Miss Julia to Lillian and James! She has an amazing ability to produce character changes through her voice that make each character come to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but I use them for entertainment on a long daily commute, to pass the time while I complete household chores and on long drives.
