Miss Julia Raises the Roof

Miss Julia Raises the Roof

Author: Ann B. Ross Narrator: Cynthia Darlow Release Date: 01/04/2018

The nineteenth installment of the beloved and New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series With her husband Sam off on a trip to Europe, Miss Julia takes a pause to reflect on the past few decades-realizing how the comforts and joys of her life can sometimes give way to boredom. Miss Julia reckons it's about time to roll up her sleeves and be of some use to her community. She's just considering how to get involved when she hears that the nosy do-gooder Madge Taylor and the new pastor Rucker are embarking on a mission to buy up the vacant house down the street from Miss Julia and establish a group home for wayward teenagers. No stranger to taking in the down-and-out herself, Miss Julia is shocked to learn Madge and the pastor never consulted her or anyone else in the neighborhood about their project-only a board of the church's congregants who don't live in the neighborhood, all instructed to keep the project a secret. Hazel Marie and Miss Julia's fears are confirmed when they start investigating, and find that Madge and her board of busybodies plan to proceed without much care for how to manage the home after they've built it, or whether it will be built to code in the first place-never mind that the house itself is ill suited for a bunch of teenagers to be living in it, barely supervised. Miss Julia must band together with friends and neighbors to take on nosy Madge and her steamrolling plans, while still being helpful to those in need in another entertaining installment of Ann B. Ross's bestselling series.

In the latest installment of Ann B. Ross's New York Times bestselling series, Miss Julia takes a trip to the beach, only to confront a hurricane roiling off the coast-and all the trouble it washes ashore Sweet and generous Sam has decided to take a big group trip to the beach, inviting family and friends including little Latisha, leaving Lillian to enjoy a quiet vacation taking care of only herself. While Miss Julia prepares for the big trip, her longtime friend LuAnne comes to her with a horrifying discovery-her husband Leonard may be cheating on her. When the two discover more convincing evidence, Julia invites LuAnne along to the beach to get away and clear her head-and to keep from doing anything rash. Everyone settles into the rental house and six-year-old Latisha is having a blast searching for seashells when she discovers some much more valuable treasures that have washed up from a strong storm off the coast. As the storm nears, the crew packs up to head back to Abbotsville, and it appears that the strange couple they met on the beach are in a car right behind them-a coincidence, Miss Julia thinks, until they show up in Abbotsville threatening Latisha and demanding that she hand over her newfound treasures. In another highly entertaining and delightful installment in the series by Ann B. Ross, Miss Julia must rely on her quick wit and strong will to protect Latisha, get to the bottom of LuAnne's predicament, and once again save the day.

Working as the home nurse for the elderly but wealthy Howard Connard, Senior, she finally sees her chance—with her sexy curves and infectious charm, Etta Mae is determined to become his wife. Unfortunately, Connard’s scheming, money-hungry son and stuck-up daughter-in-law are equally determined to make sure she doesn’t. To make matters worse, Etta Me’s ex-husband Skip (her first ex, that is) has shown up with a winning lottery ticket in his hand and local thugs hot on his heels. Plus, her dreamy former flame, officer Bobby Lee, keeps popping up to remind her that she’s not over him yet.
