Publisher's Summary

The delightful new installment of the beloved and New York Times best-selling Miss Julia series 

When Miss Julia's regular doctor goes on vacation with his wife, leaving a replacement in his stead, Miss Julia is immediately concerned. Never one to miss an opportunity to entertain - or size up - a newcomer, she invites the charming Dr. Don Crawford, and his painfully shy wife, Lauren, to dinner. While Miss Julia and Sam both note Lauren's obvious lack of social skills, it's her friends Hazel Marie and Binkie that pick up on some of Dr. Crawford's less palatable qualities. 

Meanwhile, Lloyd has gotten his first car, and LuAnne, fresh off her divorce, has started a job at the local funeral home and is in urgent need of an occupation-appropriate makeover - Miss Julia has enough on her plate. Yet there is just something she can't place about the Crawfords, and she won't rest until she gets to the bottom of it. 

As always, hijinks ensue as Ann B. Ross delivers this delightful and entertaining installment, Miss Julia Takes the Wheel, in her best-selling Miss Julia series.

Oh Miss Julia

I discovered these books a little over 1 year ago and read the entire series within a month. They are clever, humorous, and smart. I appreciate that the plot normally involves a mystery that is believable and relatable. It's nice to know that murder isn't always needed for a good cozy mystery.

I love Miss Julia and Cynthia Darlow's narration of the beloved character so much that Ive become obsessed with finding books where the protagonist is a feisty geriatric slueth.

This latest installment, however, was one of my least favorites, but, still better than most of the other books I've read this year. I wish more of the townspeople had been featured in this book. They are so well developed and fun to read about.

Lastly, I felt like the ending was rushed and not well thought out. Everything was "sort of" wrapped up but felt the story was incomplete.

Always a stellar job and story

I love the Miss Julia series. The characters are so fun and the narrator does the BEST voices and accents. I love the humor and the story lines never disappoint. I always look forward to hearing the next book. I hope that eventually all of the series will be available on Audible.

another fun one

Always look forward to the next chance to spend time with Miss Julia and all the Abottsville folks. The narrator really nails the voices I had in my head for them all.

Great performance by Darlow

Miss Julia worries too much, gets in other people's business, and repeats, repeats, repeats herself. I still enjoy the stories and this one has some really funny moments.

So So Disappointed

I have listened to all the Miss Julia books and this one was not funny, not exciting, not interesting, just disappointing.
