Description
Miss Julia—that proper lady of a certain age, with steel magnolia poise and the sharpest tongue south of the Mason-Dixon Line—finds herself increasingly concerned about her gentleman friend Sam, in this fourth entry in the popular series (inaugurated by the Book Sense Top Ten Pick Miss Julia Takes Over). Sam has taken to wearing cowboy boots, sending flowers, and writing bad poetry, and when he rides up on a motorcycle one day, Miss Julia is convinced that he's lost his mind. Then she finds out her cherished housekeeper Lillian is about to lose her home, and realizes Sam's Harley Davidson might be the key to saving it.

"[Ann] Ross's latest will bring a chorus of 'Thank you, Lords' from faithful readers.... This time out, [Miss Julia] finds herself championing her longtime housekeeper, Lillian. A greedy landowner is about to raze Lillian's home—in fact, the entire Willow Lane neighborhood, which houses low-income blacks. In order to save them, Julia gambles her own home and flouts her sense of propriety by donning Hazel Marie's leather pants and participating in a high-stakes motorcycle marathon and poker game, along with the Presbyterian minister's previously stodgy wife. And if that sounds improbable, factor in a spring whose water has an awesome effect on garden shrubbery and men's anatomy, furnishing oodles of delicious scandal. Series fans take note: Binkie and Coleman have a baby, and things look mighty promising between Julia and lawyer Sam Murdoch at the end of the book."—Publishers Weekly
