60 Something And Just Beginning
Miss Julia is a proper southern lady, a recent widow, and is just beginning to learn about the realities of her life. She tackles this new life head-on with spirit and enthusiasm. You will enjoy her tale and her spunk as she takes on all the lies and mis-directions of her life. Not only that you will laugh. This was an easy, quick read that will make you want more - so thank goodness this is only the first of a series. I've already ordered several more!

A DELIGHTFUL READ
For a funny, laugh-out-loud book that makes you feel refreshed after reading you'll enjoy Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind. She is such an enjoyable character (and a character she is). Always trying to do the right thing, Miss Julia, by speaking her mind and doing what she feels is right, often ends up in a sea of trouble. You can easily relate to her especially if you are 60+. However, any age would enjoy reading this book of a proper lady who always finds herself on the wrong side of the law just by trying to help others. This is the first in a series of "Miss Julia" and I can't wait to read the rest. It's always fun to laugh out loud while reading a book. Highly recommended.

Easy and Fun
If you are tired of reading heavy non-fiction, educational tomes, switch to some wonderfully fun and light fiction, and try a Miss Julia book. Start with this one, "Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind", and I almost guarantee that you will want to read the others that follow! The author has a knack of cleverly crafting words and scenes that will have you laughing and chuckling on every page. But the story is worth staying around for - a little suspense tucked in to keep the reader interested. Give it a try.
