The year is 1920: Flying in the face of convention, legendary American adventuress Beryl Helliwell never fails to surprise and shock. The last thing her adoring public would expect is that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the ticket. And, honestly, until America comes to its senses and repeals Prohibition, Beryl has no intention of returning stateside and subjecting herself to bathtub gin.

I’m so excited for this book series! Barbara Rosenblat made the characters come to life as always. I thought I had the mystery solved, but it was a surprise ending, with lots of humor. I can’t wait for the next one.

Sweet and generous Sam has decided to take a big group trip to the beach, inviting family and friends including little Latisha, leaving Lillian to enjoy a quiet vacation taking care of only herself. While Miss Julia prepares for the big trip, her longtime friend LuAnne comes to her with a horrifying discovery - her husband Leonard may be cheating on her. When the two discover more convincing evidence, Julia invites LuAnne along to the beach to get away and clear her head - and to keep from doing anything rash.

This is another great Miss Julia book! Miss Julia, Lillian, Latisha, and Etta Mae make me laugh every time. There are very few excellent readers and Cynthia Darlow is one of them. She is fantastic with the voices. I didn't like the audible of the first Miss Julia book and she didn't read it, but thankfully she has brought the characters to life in every book since. Thanks Ann for giving us another clean, hilarious suspense to enjoy.

When Retta's "gentleman friend" is accused of murder, the Sleuth Sisters take on the case. Winston Darrow is a charmer, but his secrets create trouble that spills onto Retta, Barb, Faye, and even police chief Rory Neuencamp. Someone is out to get Win, someone he claims is the real killer. While Retta admits Win is less trustworthy than her daffy Newfoundland dog, she insists he's not a murderer. Dogs become an issue when Faye rescues a mutt she finds hurt on the road.

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.

Love Miss Julia books! The reader wasn't very good at changing voices. Cynthia Darlow does a much better job with our southern country drawl. I'm sure Karen does better with other accents.

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.

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!
