Miss Julia faces a double dose of trouble-this time right under her own roof
Miss Julia's iron will and kind heart have assured her a spot among the most beloved characters of Southern literature. In her latest adventure, Miss Julia whisks Hazel Marie off to the doctor when the latter admits she's been feeling poorly. The news floors them both: Hazel Marie is pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, she's also just sent her beau, Mr. Pickens, packing. Miss Julia needs a plan-and fast. So when Sam's house is robbed, Miss Julia declares that only J. D. Pickins, P.I., can get his things back. Playing Cupid and solving the crime might seem like a tall order but readers everywhere know that Miss Julia always delivers the goods.
Genteel and proper Miss Julia has had a lot to contend with ever since her husband of 44 years, Wesley Lloyd Springer, died, and his mistress, Hazel Marie, showed up at her front door, son in tow. Since then, Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd have become like family—a family that’s about to get bigger, since Hazel Marie is unexpectedly pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, Hazel Marie’s on-again, off-again relationship with the father, private detective J. D. Pickens, seems to be off again, and J. D. has left town. How to hide the mother-to-be’s condition from the well-meaning but easily scandalized townfolk of Abbotsville, and get the couple to the altar? And what’s behind the theft of some of the records Miss Julia’s new husband, Sam, was using to compile his legal history of Abbot county? Series fans will enjoy finding all the familiar elements in place. -Mary Ellen Quinn
