The delightful new installment of the beloved and New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series

Miss Julia has decided to turn over a new leaf. It's time to stop meddling in other peoples' lives, she thinks--but her hands are full before long! Her neighbor Mildred is sent into a tizzy when a grandchild she's never met shows up on her doorstep. And Mildred's husband keeps forgetting who she is, so she's all on her own. Meanwhile, Etta Mae is worried about losing her job now that the Handy Home Helpers is up for sale. Luckily, Miss Julia has experience dealing
with children dropped on doorsteps, and sweeps in to lend a hand. But there's something missing in that child's life, and Miss Julia knows exactly what it is.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Thirty years after New York Times best-selling author Ross debuted her beloved series (in Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, 1999), Miss Julia continues to, well, speak her mind in the charming latest installment. Miss Julia Murdoch has made a promise to herself: she's getting out of the "knowing-what's-best business" and letting people fend for themselves. But what is she to do when her next-door neighbor has family drama that is more than one person can handle on her own? Or when she finds out dear Etta Mae is facing potential unemployment? Miss Julia can't just stand idly by! Soon she is caught up in helping her friends overcome their obstacles, proving that when it comes to friendship, Miss Julia knows a thing or two. Written with Ross's signature Southern charm and wit, the newest Miss Julia will delight long-time fans of the series and will entice new readers to get to know her. Perfect as a standalone, this is definitely one to have on libraries' contemporary-fiction shelves."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Ross's enticing 21st mystery set in the small North Carolina town of Abbotsville (after 2019's Miss Julia Takes the Wheel) finds Miss Julia Murdoch's next-door neighbor, Mildred Allen, dealing with the declining mental faculties of her husband, Horace; the self-imposed estrangement of her daughter, Tonya, who until recently was her son, Tony; and the sudden appearance of an unknown grandchild. Naturally, Mildred turns to her friend Miss Julia for advice. Though Miss Julia has been trying lately to be less of a busybody, she can't resist lending a hand, and it doesn't take her long to realize that something about Mildred's grandchild is more than a little suspicious. Meanwhile, Miss Julia sees what she can do to help Etta Mae Wiggins, who's in danger of losing her Handy Home Helper job. Miss Julia, who has vowed to be less judgmental and opinionated, decides in the end that maybe her meddling is warranted. Never mind the minimal crime element. This amusing tale will please cozy fans. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (Apr.)"
