Ann B. Ross' most recent addition to the Miss Julia's Marvelous Makeover series was the first to hit the printed New York Times best-seller list, so Miss Julia fans both new and old will be especially keen to get their hands on the next one. The 16th in the series, Miss Julia Lays Down the Law is guaranteed to be the steel magnolia's most exciting adventure yet.
It's November, and Miss Julia is looking forward to some quiet time before the holidays. That is until snobby Connie Clayborn and her rich husband move to town. At first Miss Julia and the other ladies are pleased to be invited over for coffee, but the afternoon turns into a slap in the face when their hostess spouts nonstop criticism about Abbotsville. Why, how dare she? Days later Miss Julia decides to confront Connie woman to woman, but when she arrives Connie is lying on the kitchen floor - lifeless in a pool of blood. Who could have done this? Miss Julia will need to find out fast - particularly because her fingerprints are now all over the crime scene....

If you find yourself laughing out loud to a book them you know you have a great writer. I am a true fan of Miss Julia books. I've read several and listened to most all of them. Cynthia Darlow does an excellent job with the voices. If she isn't reading it's just blah. Keep them coming Ann Ross!
This series is a delight. The reader is marvelous and you feel like you are listening to an old fashioned radio show. I laugh out loud at the crazy antics of Miss Julia.
Yes, I listened to this audiobook while doing household chores (i.e. preparing meals; folding laundry; while eating breakfast/lunch) so this book made these activities not so boring.
Relief that the story was over.
Cynthia Darlow does a good job of portraying the voice of Miss Julia, although at times her performance is a bit too melodramatic and overdone for my taste.
Yes, but only because it entertained me while performing mundane activities.
I have listened to every Miss Julia book and of all the books in this series, this one was my least favorite. There was too much repetition throughout this book. I hope the next Miss Julia book will be better.
Loved the book. I enjoy all of the Miss Julia Books. I have read all of them and look forward to the next one. The narrator did a job job.
The whole book..Climbing up the sign..
Sneaking up to the house of the deceased woman,
Her wonderful southern accent
Keep the books coming Ann B. Ross
Great Plot line and interesting twist at the end. I also like the introduction of new characters.
