  • Miss Julia cracks me up These books are not great literary works of fiction They are wonderfully entertaining and a quick, fun read.


  • Book number four in the popular series starring Miss Julia, a widow of a certain age This time she gets her hackles up when she learns that a local slumlord is evicting all the poor African American tenants, so he can demolish the homes and build a water bottling plant on the land Miss Julia s housekeeper, Lillian, is one of those tenants and she decides she will find a way to save the properties I just love Miss Julia, who frequently gets embroiled in one scandal scheme or another when she jump [...]


  • How hard can you laugh when reading a book If it s the Miss Julia series the answer is hard enough to cry and get a headache.Miss Julia needs to raise money to save Miss Lillian s neighborhood from being bulldozed A very large donation has been offered if she rides in a poker run To say that the whole situation was comical is an understatement A quote from Miss Julia Takes A Ride Hazel Marie finished by tucking the sides of my coat under each leg, where I hoped it would stay, else everybody was [...]



  • Initially, this didn t start out well I was confused with all the characters It is after all, number 4 in the series and this was my beginning It got much better, it was kinda funny and I had to admire Miss Julia for her fortitude, smarts and her love of the downtrodden She is willing to do the unthinkable to best the worst landlord ever and maybe something will happen romantically with Sam I bought another book in this series and the other novel will be read soon.


  • 5 star PLUS A new favorite Oh my goodness I feel in love with this book within the first few minutes I started listening to it A combination of Designing Women, Driving Miss Daisy and Golden Girls all mixed up into one Even though this was book 4 of this series I was in no way lost within the story All the characters are easy to understand who they are and who they are to each other Their community etc You can t help but fall in love with them And for those of you not used to us Southern folk us [...]


  • Miss Julia on a motorcycle No way But all for a good cause Miss Julia s long time housekeeper Lillian has been evicted from her home along with all of her neighbors The owner of the property wants to bulldoze all the houses and put up a water bottling plant using the spring water on the hill, rud to do wonderful things for a man Miss Julia intercedes to buy the houses and land but the scoundrel who owns it will only talk if Miss Julia puts her own home on the line So where to come up with 200,00 [...]


  • This book held my interest from the start to the end I can just imagine what Julia is thinking, doing, and causing in her efforts to be a lady Riding on a motorcycle for a good cause was the icing on the cake Goes to show you what can happen when people of all kinds rally behind a good deed There is a lesson here and I hope we have learned that it is indeed possible that when it is worth it, Go For It Enjoy


  • I have read several of the Miss Julia books and will read them all before I m through They are light, and funny, and thought provoking, and fun I would love to live with Miss Julia, or at least have her for a friend She is witty, funny, strong, down to earth, kind and sensible It s just a fun place to be, especially when things aren t going so well in my own life It s nice to escape into a relaxed, easy environment.


  • I already had this audiobook on hold at the library, otherwise I wouldn t have listened to it so soon after reading a previous Miss Julia book But, as expected this is a light hearted story with a bit of drama and Miss Julia right in the middle of things She come to the aid of Lillian, her friend and housekeeper, who along with neighbors is losing their homes Definitely better in audio IMHO.



  • The Miss Julia series of books is very enjoyable Occasionally there may be a slow spot in a book, but read through You will find yourself wanting the next one to see just what she is up to.



  • This is an amusing instalment in the series Miss Julia has to ride on a motorcycle to raise money for charity The charity is a question of saving the homes of her servant Lillian and her neighbours who, it s pretty clear, are not white The downside of this book is the way these characters are shown as innocent and gullible to the extent of being almost like children Miss Julia is a stereotype too, of course but two wrongs don t make a right, as my mother was fond of saying when we were growing u [...]


  • Miss Julia is delightful as usual The only reason I didn t give it a 4 Star rating is, unlike previous books, I thought the first half of Hits The Road was a bit slow However, in later chapters, I found myself laughing out loud on occasion, especially during the bike ride.


  • Another fun story from Miss Julia Nothing too outrageous or unbelievable in this one Just a huge fund raiser to help save Lillian s home that involves a large donation from an eccentric millionaire, ladies of a certain age, and motorcycles.


  • A fun you story with unique characters However they didn t tell me who Hazel Marie was or how old Little Loyld was This was my first read in this series Had to research to find out about the characters Still I would love to meet Miss Julia She was a hoot.


  • I love these Miss Julia books It s like taking a trip back in time to read about all of the Southern manners and pretensions This was one of the better books in the series and kept me amused throughout


  • The funniest Miss Julia yet I did not expect a Miss Julia plot to feature warnings straight out of a Viagra commercial but fear not, she handles the subject matter in her typical discreet and ladylike way Definitely full of laugh out loud moments Delightful

  • When you think you know what Miss Julia is going to do in a situation she changes the way she acts This book also has a funny side to a proper way Miss Julia sees herself and others.
