Publisher's Summary

A new Miss Julia novel from New York Times best-selling author Ann B. Ross is a special treat for her devoted fans as well as those new to the adventures of the titular senior citizen. This time out, the proper Southern lady has a couple doozies on her plate.

It seems that her friend Hazel’s PI husband, J.D,. has gotten himself in some trouble in West Virginia - and he’s one tirade away from landing in a jail cell. Meanwhile, a crew of misfits has followed wealthy Agnes Whitman back to Abbotsville, and they have all the makings of a crazy religious cult!

    Story
    "Just plain bizarre"

    I spent most of the book consciously suspending disbelief that things could possibly have happened the way they did. As far as structure goes, there are two plot points, with a "spinoff" (subplot) of the second one.
    First, Miss Julia and Etta Mae end up "rescuing" J. D. Pickens from police custody in West Virginia; he's in the local hospital doped to the gills, suffering from gunshot wounds. That whole mess would've been easily resolved in real life, by having Coleman ask the WV sheriff for a description of the guy they're holding as John Doe. Did he do that? Of course not! And then, not long after he's back home, Pickens is hosting a dinner party -- they way he was tossed about like a sack of potatoes by Julia and Etta Mae, he should've been in intensive care! The same sheriff who was close-mouthed to the point of being hostile later becomes a complete pussycat. Okay ...
    Attention turns to the new "cult" in town ... wherein people are getting tattoos and piercings as part of a "religious" experience. Clearly Ms. Ross highly disapproves of this practice; I recommend she NOT consider any vacations to Seattle in the near future!
    Sam, not being needed here for his propensities to utter "Oh, Julia!" and to initiate sexual activity, has been shipped off to the Holy Land with a church group. So, Miss Julia is re-doing the house in his absence, including a dedicated writing room as a surprise. The oh-so-nice evangelical young carpenter she's hired, and taken a liking to, goes missing, so she and Etta Mae have another zany outing to get him out of the clutches of the "cult" (and back to fundamentalist Christianity instead).
    I understand that Miss Julia leads a relatively sheltered life, but she does come off here as highly judgmental, petty, and nasty. Frankly, one can probably skip this book altogether in the series, as there aren't any events that should affect future stories. Not particularly recommended, although Cynthia Darlow does her usual good job with the narration.

    Story
    "Disappointing Miss Julia"
    What disappointed you about Miss Julia to the Rescue?

    I love the series but this one fell way short. It was homophobic and anti- any religion but mainstream. Miss Julia is way better than this story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ann B. Ross again?

    Yes, I'd try again.


    Have you listened to any of Cynthia Darlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Cynthia Darlow was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Its always good to catch up with the characters in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Give us back our open-minded Miss Julia!

    Story
    "Miss Julia has a special place in my heart."

    I first discovered Miss Julia after my Mom passed away in January 2015. I was cleaning out her car several months later and noticed a cassette tape in the radio. It was part of Miss Julia throws a wedding. I found the rest of the tapes in back and decided to listen to what was Mom's last book. I love the Miss Julia series and can't get them fast enough.

    "Miss Julia makes my day!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I have... There are a dozen friends who are reading this series since I have recommended or shared one of the Miss Julia books with them...and we all love this series.Why? Because we can all use a little fun and laughter in our lives, and Miss Julia reminds us what trouble one can get into, and out of, with friends and family...she is a joy.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Well, not on the edge of my seat, but it did keep me happily reading, and now and then I would stop to just giggle at this story.... One never knows what Miss Julia is going to get into next.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Darlow – was your favorite?

    We all love Miss Julia, and Little Lloyd, but I adore Lillian.... My favorite books are those when Lillian and Julia get into trouble together....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, and it sure puts a smile on your face when you read or listen to this series.


    Any additional comments?

    I often read series books, Father Tim, Miss Dorothy, and so many others; but Miss Julia is the one I love the best.... This series always gives you a laugh, and makes you feel like your right at home with the cast of characters. I have read much of this series, but enjoy the audio as the characters come to life... I never grow tired of this series, and have a dozen friends now reading and listening to this wonderful series of books.... Keep on going Miss Julia, we all love you!
