Description

Miss Julia--that Southern spitfire of a certain age who is never less than charming, even when she's at her most opinionated--has been praised by Fannie Flagg as "one of the most delightful characters to come along in years." Don't miss Ann Ross's newest, Miss Julia Raises the Roof, coming April 2018 from Viking. In Miss Julia Hits the Road, she is becoming increasingly concerned about her gentleman friend, Sam, who has suddenly started wearing cowboy boots, sending her flowers, and writing bad poetry. And when he shows up on a Harley-Davidson Road King and asks her to hop on, she's convinced he's lost his mind. Meanwhile, her invaluable housekeeper, Lillian, has been evicted from her home by her greedy landlord. Deciding that Lillian's need is greater than her own fear (not to mention loss of dignity), Miss Julia takes Sam up on his offer and sets off on a motorcycle Poker Run to raise some fast cash. She's ready to risk life and limb in Sam's sidecar to save Lillian's home from the bulldozer, but will Miss Julia's scheme work?

Review quote

"It is impossible not to like irrepressible, perfectly proper Miss Julia.... [Fans] will agree that Miss Julia Hits the Road hits nary a bump with its ingenuity, great good humor and pleasing, light touch." --The Roanoke Times

Praise for Ann B. Ross and the Miss Julia series:


"Ross has a gift for elevating such everyday matters as marital strife and the hazards of middle age to high comedy, while painting her beautifully drawn characters with wit and sympathy."
-Publishers Weekly

"A charming, fun adventure with new relatives, old secrets and a will putting Miss Julia and the Abbotsville regulars in a true Southern mess. I loved it!" --Duffy Brown, bestselling author of the Consignment Shop Mysteries "Ann B. Ross develops characters so expertly, through quirks, names, and mannerisms, that they easily feel familiar as the reader is gently immersed into the world Miss Ross has created. . . . A delightful read." --Winston-Salem Journal "Miss Julia is one of the most delightful characters to come along in years. Ann B. Ross has created what is sure to become a classic Southern comic novel. Hooray for Miss Julia, I could not have liked it more." --Fannie Flagg, author of The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion "Yes, Miss Julia is back, and I, for one, am one happy camper." --J. A. Jance, author of Cold Betrayal
