Series Sunday: Miss Julia Takes Over

Series Sunday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along. 

  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Post a review/recommendation on your blog, FB, Twitter, Goodreads, or Shelfari pages.
  • Share your review/recommendation by posting the link in the comments section below.
  • Include the title, author, and name of the series so that other Series Sunday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
My Series Sunday pick is Miss Julia Takes Over, the second book in the Miss Julia series by Ann B. Ross. Hazel Marie and Little Lloyd have settled into Miss Julia's home. They become quite the comfortable nontraditional family. But Hazel Marie goes missing...again. The sheriff won't help search so Miss Julia takes over looking for the mistress of her deceased husband. Of course there are adventures during the search for Hazel Marie, but they are far-fetched.

I don't know if I am burnt out on foo-foo mysteries, but this didn't keep my attention. Sure I read it fast but only to be through with it. Amazon dubs it "Aunt Bee from the Andy Griffith Show with a lot more backbone and confidence." Hmmm, not quite. In this second installment of the series, Miss Julia seemed to doubt her actions. There were moments when she was feisty, but overall she was a southern mother figure. I'm taking a break from this series and will maybe revisit later.
