Miss Julia Happily Ever After
by Ross, Ann B.






"The delightful final installment of the beloved and New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series. Wedding fever hits Abbotsville and several of Miss Julia's friends have plans to tie the knot. But, as usual, nothing is so simple. Christy Hargrove suddenly gives up a lifelong dream and drops out of medical school to marry, Helen Stroud and Thurlow Jones decide to change their commercial arrangement into a marital one, and, to Miss Julia's consternation, Lillian, her housekeeper and closest companion, is considering a less-than-romantic offer to wed a local businessman who turns courting into a job interview. And then there's LuAnne who just wants to be married, and Janelle who doesn't. Miss Julia wants to properly celebrate each ceremony, insofar as anyone will let her. But Helen wants a private, even secretive, wedding; Christy's fianc‚e wants a destination wedding, and Lillian can't decide if she wants a wedding at all. In the middle of it all, a strange figure keeps showing up in town, streaking across lawns and vandalizing the gardens of Miss Julia's neighbors. Abbotsville's liveliest resident finds herself trying to solve it all--matters of the heart and petty crime alike--and once again save the day"-





Ann B. Ross is the author of twenty-one novels featuring the popular Southern heroine Miss Julia, as well as Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day, a novel about one of Abbotsville's other most outspoken residents: Etta Mae Wiggins. Ross holds a doctorate in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has taught literature at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. She lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina.





Wedding bells are ringing in Ross' latest (after Miss Julia Knows a Thing or Two, 2020). Miss Julia's social card is filling up quickly with all of the weddings her friends are planning. Helen is entering a marriage of convenience, Etta Mae may finally be tying the knot with her beau, and even LuAnne might have found Mr. Right. Miss Julia loves a good wedding, but when her longtime maid Lillian considers a not-very-romantic proposal from a local businessman, Miss Julia hopes she says no. The final entry in the beloved series has a few unfortunate elements-a side story about an octogenarian proposing marriage to a teenage girl and a bizarre plotline about a streaker terrorizing Miss Julia and her friends late at night-though the elements come together in the end. But Miss Julia is still Miss Julia, which may be all that longtime fans of the series require. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
