Miss Julia is my aunt. Well, not that my aunt got into all the situations that Miss Julia does, but in the description of the character and her desire to remain a town doyen and present a perfect face to the public. The books are easy to read and have a tendency to make one laugh out loud at Miss Julia and her adventures. I recommend them to anyone who just needs a little laughter for a change.

I just LOVE this series! Miss Julia is a combination of "I Love Lucy" meets "Fried Green Tomatoes". If you have access at the library to books on CD, I highly recommend listening to them. Cynthia Darlow narrates all but one of them and does so with all the charm, grace, and humor of a true southern belle. I just can't say enough good about herself. I am just finishing the last one in the series now, and I will be sad to see it end. I do hope the author has more in store in the future!

Miss Julia is quite a character who gets herself into some unusual situations. Her mannerisms, comments, and use of idioms reminded me of ladies of my mother's generation. I found myself laughing out loud. A fun, easy read.

I am reading this series with its great characters, especially Miss Julia. I just completed reading Miss Julia Hits the Road, which features her cajoling alot of her church lady friends to raise money by riding in a motorcycle Poker Run, to help other friends keep their homes.
