Miss Julia Delivers the Goods. by Ann B. Ross.

Never a dull moment. Miss Julia has her hands full. this time it's due to Hazel Marie's condition. Hazel Marie has not been feeling well at all. Tests are run and it turns out she's expecting. This news comes shortly after she has called it quits with Mr. Pickens, the father. And it looks like twins are on the horizon.

The problems never cease, so it's up to Miss Julia to be the mediator. Can she work out this major dilemma?

I enjoyed another wonderful

Miss Julia is beside herself. Hazel Marie has taken ill, but she refuses to let Miss Julia notify Mr Pickens. Apparently they have broken up; he’s in Charlotte working on a case and may be moving there. Hazel Marie says she is ready to get on with her life, but she is clearly miserable. Miss Julia and Lillian both think that the two just need some time together to work things out, but how to engineer that when they are in different cities? When there’s a break-in at Sam’s home and only the resea ...more
Audiobook: I was looking for a new series to start, something easy and enjoyable. I think this is it. As I was reading, I realized I did read one of her earlier books. This was pretty easy reading and I figured out that it is mostly about an older lady who is a huge busy body in her small town and that is basically what the book was about. The mystery in the book was a smaller second part of the story and not real interesting. But I loved the reader and the accents and the old town busy body and ...more
I enjoyed the story. Miss Julia has her quirks and sometimes they drive me crazy, but the overall story always wins out with me.

I listened to BOCD. The narrator bothered me and it took me several CDs to stop obsessing about her vocal changes. I felt her portrayal of Lillian, Miss Julia's African-American cook/housekeeper/sidekick, was more like "Steppin' Fetchit" from movies in the first half of the 20th century...borderline racial stereotype...not in the writing, but in the vocal portrayal.

The adventures of Miss Julia is captured by Ann B. Ross in this popular series. While this is not high literature, I thoroughly enjoy the situations that Miss Julia finds herself in. She is like a madcap Angela Lansbury careening through her small southern town trying to please everyone while dealing with her many personal crazy friends and relations. These are hilarious and often you can't put them down. I don't know why they never made this into a comedy series.

I would recommend that you read

The 10th book in Ann Ross's "Miss Julia" series, "Miss Julia Delivers the Goods" is a delightful tale of Miss Julia who starts out very worried about her friend Hazel Marie who is sick. When the diagnosis for her is a pregnancy by her now ex boyfriend, Julia tries everything in her power to get her & her ex (J.D. Pickens) back together while still keeping her request to keep this a secret. Also a break-in at Sam's house which causes most of a county history re-writing to be destroyed adds an ...more

Whenever a "Miss Julia" book comes out, I HAVE to read it.
I started out wondering why Miss Julia couldn't see the obvious in the first story of the book. Then she picks up on things I didn't see in the other story (There's always more than one plot).
I think my favorite character in all the "Miss Julia" books is Lillian, Julia's housekeeper. She's the one with common sense and kindness.
The Miss Julia books are always a wonderful break from the stress and worries that consume us all. In this installment, she must help her husband Sam determine why someone would break into his home and destroy his notes and interview tapes for his local legal history while also trying to mend the broken relationship between her best friend Hazel Marie and her beau.
If you love- " I Love Lucy" then Miss Julia Books are for you! Hilarious hi-jinks!

I almost didn't read this book. I had trouble getting into it. The main character is an incredibly obnoxious busy body, the kind of person I can't stand in real life. The only way I was able to continue reading was to keep reminding myself that her intentions were good. Also, everything was totally hyped up and over the top, all the emotions overdone. I know there are people who are really like that, but I don't prefer their company.

The plot was a little thin. There were two main plot lines, one
As I added this title to my book list on Goodreads, I discovered it was the 10th title in the series. I disagree with some of the earlier reviewers who said this book can not stand alone. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I've not read any of the previous titles. One thing that I found quite pleasant as I read this title, is that the author didn't waste time in Chapter 1 or 2, "catching me up" on characters that may have been introduced in previous novels. As much as I enjoy Debbie Macomber and Sue Gr ...more
If you are a fan of the Miss Julia novels, this one doesn't dissappoint. For those who are unfamiliar with Miss Julia, she is a proper southern Presbyterian lady whose open heart is often at war with her idea of propriety. She claims she doesn't interfere with the lives of others, but.....! For anyone interested, these novels must be read in order to be really enjoyed. The first novel is Miss Julia speaks her Mind. In that novel her proper ladylike life is disrupted when her husband dies and lea ...more

This is another hilarious tale featuring the smart and crafty Miss Julia. This time her deceased husband's mistress and their son, who she has come to love, are in trouble and Miss Julia needs to get a reluctant Hazel Marie married quick. It's small town America at its best and who is better than Miss Julia to get the job done.

The best one yet.

Miss Julia is in for a few surprises in this book! Not only is poor Hazel Marie unwell with her illness bringing a real revelation and the news that she and JD have broken up but someone has broken into Sam's house and taken the records he's been using to write his book!

Miss Julia and Lilian have to put their heads together and come up with ways to keep the town from discovering hazel Marie's little problem and getting her and JD back together which involves bringing JD into the
Another delightful book by Ms. Ross - I am enjoying her books about Miss Julia immensely! Miss Julia is the quintessential Southern lady, yet manages to get into some tight corners and has some exciting adventures cross her path. Ms. Ross manages to make me laugh and chew my nails, sometimes on the same page.
Despite Miss Julia's annoying worry about babies being born out of wedlock (*pearl clutch* the gossip!) and my wanting to slap Hazel Marie over just how juvenile she was being about JD, it ended up being rather good. (And finally, an actual mystery!)

I read the first four chapters, but knew exactly what was wrong with Hazel Marie after chapter one. All I can say is that if in real life a doctor like the one in the book was this incompetent, I'd sue him for all those unnecessary tests he did! One of the first things any competent doctor would have done was give Hazel Marie a pregnancy test - she had ALL the classic symptoms. I just couldn't force myself to read past the fourth chapter because it was too over-the-top even for Miss Julia. Sadly ...more
Listened to this on CD. The reader was excellent and really made the story come alive. This is a really cute series, very entertaining. It's certainly not deep, but I liked it!

I loved this series from the beginning. The sassy, overly conscious of being a proper Southern lady Miss Julia is a hoot and she is well written by Ms. Ross. That being said... this one disappointed me. For one thing the whole book is about deception, from beginning to end, and this just doesn't seem characteristic of Miss Julia. She occasionally decries having to lie in the story but then turns right around and does it again without blinking an eye. The whole book and its premise seemed out of ...more
Quick, enjoyable light reading. The only book I've read in this series and I could relate to many of the southern cultural quirks which helped keep my interest.
Content - entertaining. I debated between 3 and 4 stars - probably a 3 and 3/4.

Mechanics - no complaints.

Squeaky Clean? - Some swearing.

I did not care for the book. The only reason I finished it is that it was the only book I had with me and I had 3 hours to sit.
Light-weight writing; easy listening for long commute. Not a book I would pick to read but Audio version was entertaining.
Donna LaValley
In Miss Julia Delivers the Goods, there are 2 plots for Miss Julia to work on: solve the mystery of the break in and theft at Sam’s house –historical court case information for his book are missing—and also deliver Mr. Pickens and Hazel Marie to the alter, because that knot seriously needs to be tied. She sent him packing, and he went, and the timing of the break up was especially unfortunate. Can’t give it top stars because of the repetitious and ditzy ruminations constantly playing forth into ...more
Miss Julia and the entire cast are at it again. There is chaos on several fronts. Hazel Marie and JD are on the outs. Someone has broken into Sam's house and trashed all his work on the history of law in their county. Julia has secrets on top of secrets that she is trying to keep and everyone is running around with different bits of the story.

This one was a bit more madcap than some and I had to laugh at the line about Miss Julia not sticking her nose into other peoples business, since that abou
Wow!!! This one is one of the best!!!!1 I really loved it. So much better than the last one.

Ann B. Ross' Miss Julia is highly entertaining. She makes me laugh!

Light, fun reading. The audio book had an excellent narrator. I really enjoyed the accent!

This one picked up a little bit and had a bit more substance to it. Of course want to read the next one to find out what happens.
