Genre: Light humorous fiction
Book on CD read by Cynthia Darlow
This was number 7 in this series starring Julia Springer. She’s a ‘woman of a certain age’ from Abbotsville, North Carolina. I enjoy this series for driving around town audiobook listening. It’s a comedy of manners type of book. The returning cast is an enjoyable set of foils for Miss Julia.
In this one, Hazel Marie’s evangelist uncle Vernon Puckett returns. He’s threatening to publicly question whether Little Lloyd is really the son of Julia’s late husband. Although no one can quite figure out what Vernon’s up to, they’re all sure it’s no good. Miss Julia just wants to keep it all out of the public view and protect her ‘family’, but as usual, misunderstandings and confusion reign.
Perfect for light car listening.
