Can the inimitable Miss Julia keep up appearances even in the sidecar of a Harley Davidson? Miss Julia, that Southern spitfire of a certain age, is becoming increasingly concerned about her gentleman friend, Sam, who has suddenly started wearing cowboy boots, sending her flowers, and writing bad poetry. When he shows up on a Harley-Davidson Road King and asks her to hop on, she's convinced he's lost his mind. Meanwhile, her invaluable housekeeper, Lillian, has been evicted from her home by her greedy landlord. Deciding that Lillian's need is greater than her own fear (not to mention loss of dignity), Miss Julia takes Sam up on his offer and sets off on a motorcycle Poker Run to raise some fast cash. She's ready to risk life and limb in Sam's sidecar to save Lillian's home from the bulldozer, but will Miss Julia's scheme work? The motors rev and the tensions build, but as always, Miss Julia's impeccable Southern charm and grace will prevail.
Finally, the answer to the most burning question of all: Will the feisty Miss Julia meet her own match in love? Miss Julia--that beloved steel magnolia of a certain age--has been doing just fine for herself in the years since her philandering husband passed away. But could her single days be numbered? In Miss Julia Meets Her Match, Julia's longtime beau, Sam Murdoch, wants to tie the knot. And while it's hard to resist Sam's heart-racing charm, Miss Julia isn't about to give up her independence so easily. At the moment there are many other matters that require her attention, such as the plans of the mysterious drifter Dwayne Dooley to build the Walk Where Jesus Walked Christian theme park--a re-creation of the Holy Land complete with actors, sound effects, and trailer hookups--on her property. Meanwhile, the whole town is buzzing with rumors. The preacher's secretary was spotted leaving a sleazy motel with the mayor's car parked nearby. The preacher's wife, always sternly opposed to any "artificial adornment," is suddenly sporting a complete cosmetic and fashion makeover. And then there's Mildred Allen's son, Tony, who has come back from New York with some surprising news of his own--he will now be known as "Tonya." Even Miss Julia's own home is not immune to shock waves--the arrival of Latisha, housekeeper Lillian's five-year-old pistol of a great-granddaughter, sets off sparks in Miss Julia's household like a bunch of Fourth of July firecrackers. But what could shake them all up even more is if anyone finds out the most troubling gossip of all--more tall tales about Miss Julia's late husband, which could ruin Little Lloyd's burnished image of his father.... Can Miss Julia turn the town's attention away from herself before she becomes the center of scandal? And in the midst of all the commotion, can her cool-as-a-cucumber head help her heart make the decision of a lifetime? As always, the unexpected twists and turns prove to be no match for Miss Julia, who stays sharp as a tack and proper as afternoon tea in the delightful new installment of this Southern comedy of manners.
Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal-and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.With razor-sharp wit and perfect "Steel Magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind indeed-about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. Fast-paced and charming, with a sure sense of comic drama, a cast of crazy characters, and a strong Southern cadence, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight readers from first page to last.
Miss Julia has charmed and captivated fans of humorous Southern tales through six rollicking novels and now, in Miss Julia Stands Her Ground, she faces her most daunting challenge yet, Hazel Marie's trouble-making uncle, Brother Vernon Puckett, has just swept into town and questioned Little Lloyd's paternity. Suddenly, Miss Julia's late husband's estate is up for grabs, and it's up to her to prove that the boy's claim is legitimate. In another hilarious and heartwarming caper, Ann B. Ross proves that a little spunk and Southern charm go a long way.
When a band of thieves gets between Miss Julia and her dearest possession, watch out! With Miss Julia's darling Sam off on a long-planned trip and Hazel Marie vacationing in Mexico with Mr. Pickens, life is simply too quiet for Miss Julia. Of course, she has Little Lloyd to take care of (though he's not that little anymore and she's trying to remember to call him Lloyd). And she has her housekeeper, Lillian, to take care of her. So what's she to do? Throwing a party for her closest twenty-five friends only keeps life exciting for one day, after all. Just as the party glow fades, she discovers that her dearest, most precious possession is missing-and there's really only so much Sergeant Coleman Bates can suggest other than letting the police take care of the investigation. Before you can say "Organized Crime" or "Armed and Dangerous," Miss Julia has hit the road and is on the thieves' trail. Riding shotgun is Lloyd. The destination is Palm Beach, and the plan is to round up Mr. Pickens's friend and fellow private investigator Frank Tuttle. Dismayed but not dissuaded by Mr. Tuttle's inebriated state when she arrives, she calls in Etta Mae Wiggins for reinforcement. One stakeout, surreptitious surveillance (and you'll never guess what kind!), possible Fed involvement, and a madcap car chase later, Miss Julia finds herself closing in on her dearest treasure. Will she get it, and what will she risk to do so? Even Miss Julia wonders if this time she's gone too far.
When Miss Julia burst on the scene in her fictional debut, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind, this proper lady of a certain age found her orderly world turned upside down when Hazel Marie Puckett appeared with her nine-year-old son, Little Lloyd, who looked disturbingly similar to Miss Julia's late husband. Now, in Miss Julia Takes Over, with her sharp tongue and iron backbone intact, Miss Julia must tackle another disruption when Hazel Marie doesn't return from a dinner date with a fund-raiser who, in Miss Julia's opinion, wears his shorts too tight. Frantic and unable to persuade the local police that Hazel Marie is in danger, Miss Julia hires J. D. Pickens to investigate, despite her reservations about his taste for beer and women. She and Little Lloyd help search for Hazel Marie, running into adventures ranging from a most indelicate display of fisticuffs to a high-speed car chase on the track of a NASCAR Speedway, all the while standing strong ...because if Miss Julia doesn't take care of things, who will? Fast paced, funny, and full of colorful characters you'll want to meet again and again, Miss Julia Takes Overis a zany race through the South you'll not soon forget.
Readers love Miss Julia, the proper lady of a certain age with a backbone of iron and perfect Steel Magnolia poise, not to mention the sharpest tongue south of the Mason-Dixon Line. In Miss Julia Throws a Wedding, we find her feeling a little wistful when Hazel Marie, once her late husband's paramour and now her best friend, prepares to move out and live in sin with that marriage-shy Mr. Pickens. Suddenly, to Miss Julia's delight, a wedding is in the offing: Handsome Deputy Coleman Bates and attorney Binkie Enloe announce their plans to run down to the courthouse and tie the knot. But Miss Julia insists they have a real wedding ceremony and vows to make it happen. When a missing preacher, a crowd of uninvited guests, and a queasy bride threaten the happy event, Miss Julia is there to restore order, confirming her undying motto: if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

Presented for the first time in one volume are all twenty of the short stories featuring Miss Jane Marple, that delightful spinster whose innocent blue eyes belie her shrewd insights. Here, in her pretty Victorian home, her knitting needles clicking softly in the background, Agatha Christie's famous amateur sleuth solves twenty crimes in her mild, quiet manner, basing her solutions on past experiences and an insistence that human nature is the same everywhere. It was, of course, the small village of St. Mary Mead that served as Miss Marple's training ground in the finer points of criminal behavior, and this, according to the former commissioner of Scotland Yard, Sir Henry Clithering, was clearly a matter of "natural genius cultivated in a suitable soil." While others are mulling over seemingly unfathomable situations, Miss Marple uses her principles to sort out facts and "go straight to the truth like a homing pigeon."
