Non c'è tregua per Miss Julia. Hazel Marie, ex amante del marito divenuta la cocca di casa, scompare e sul suo conto iniziano a girare strane voci. Miss Julia non può far altro che incaricare un investigatore privato di cercarla. Sarà capace di starsene a casa con le mani in mano, in attesa dei risultati? Sembrava che i guai fossero finiti per Miss Julia, e invece la ritroviamo alle prese con una situazione imprevista e difficile: Hazel Marie, uscita per una serata romantica, è scomparsa. Dopo uno sfortunato tentativo di coinvolgere la polizia, Miss Julia decide di fare di testa propria e assume un (fascinoso) investigatore privato. Finirà invischiata in una serie di avventure spassose e imprevedibili che la porteranno a contatto con un mondo a lei sconosciuto, quello delle corse automobilistiche. Come se non bastasse, Miss Julia deve anche fare i conti con fratello Vern, che proprio durante la sparizione di Hazel Marie torna alla carica per ottenere l'affidamento del piccolo Lloyd (e del suo patrimonio)...

I don't know if I can read another Miss Julia book. What was laugh-out-loud funny in the first book never quite made it for me in this one. I was immediately tired of Miss Julia's self-absorption, inability to listen, and misjudgment.
Sometimes you just need a little fluff. These books just make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It's nice when a problem can be solved in 200 pages or less. Love Miss Julia.

Apparently some people think Miss Julia is a pip; I think she is a pill.
This is the 2nd in this series and the last for me. Cute and clever but definitely NOT compelling. Boring and annoying at times. Bookclub #2 choice. Borrowed book from library. Had to renew twice just to get through it.
I have become very fond of these little books. The biggest reason is that the author lives 30 minutes away in Hendersonville, NC. Miss Julia is an elderly woman who is just now finding her place in this world and the story of her tangling with NASCAR is pretty funny. As with the first of this series Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed "Miss Julia Speaks her Mind," so I was anxious to read the rest of the series. While I enjoyed this second installemnt, I found Miss Julia a little annoying in this one. Her "speaking out," was getting on my nerves because it was directed at someone who was trying to help her. The o Leggi tutto
Poor Mr. Pickens! Ms. Julia was determined to hold him accountable for doing his job. I love Miss Julia's relationship with Little Lloyd & Lillian. When Lillian asks Julia about Little Lloyd missing school, she said not to worry about that. "He's so far ahead of the others, his absence'll give them
I didn't like this book nearly as much as the first one in the series. I've heard they get better after this one. I hope so!
Miss Julia makes me tired. Don't think I can read any more of these. And she certainly goes to a different Presbyterian church than I do!
