Quando gli amici hanno bisogno, niente e nessuno riescono a fermare Miss Julia. E se l'amica in questione è Lillian, ci si può anche mettere a cavalcioni di una moto con degli improbabili pantaloni in pelle... L'intera area in cui sorge la casa di Lillian, l'adorabile governante, è stata messa in vendita da un proprietario avido, e l'unico modo che Miss Julia vede di salvare la dimora di Lillian è quello di riuscire a comprare lei stessa l'intero appezzamento. Ma come fare, visto che il venditore chiede una cifra esorbitante? Forse - suggerisce Sam, l'amico di sempre e che da un po' appare anche parecchio innamorato - partecipando a una competizione legata a motociclette e poker; e per quanto Miss Julia detesti cordialmente entrambi, le sembra l'unico modo per racimolare il denaro necessario. Salta quindi in sella a un vecchio modello di Harley-Davidson guidato da Sam e si butta nella folle impresa!

A good book for a teenager, who's trying to get started reading. Language is very basic.
Initially, this didn't start out well. I was confused with all the characters. It is after all, number 4 in the series and this was my beginning. It got much better, it was kinda funny and I had to admire Miss Julia for her fortitude, smarts and her love of the downtrodden. She is willing to do the

Delightful as always
Doing research on cozy serieses(?) and this book was recommended. Characters were terrible. Plot was barely there. The only reason not a 1-star rating is because the writing wasn't awful.
