Dy's Take

Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann B. Ross

Filed under: ChickLit,Mystery — Dy @ 08:52

I enjoyed this simply because there are very few heroines in anything these days who are not in the prime of life.  My parents are getting older, so characters in their 60’s and up are becoming more real to me.   I would probably read the rest of them, but only from the library.

My mother-in-law is near Miss Julia’s age and I cannot imagine her putting up with a man like Miss Julia’s husband.  I understand the set-up that left her a sheltered old maid until she met her husband, but have a hard time believing it.  There are enough modern references in the story to tell a reader this was written in the last seven years, which makes believing someone could be quite so naive even harder to believe.

We shall see.  I’ll give the next one in the series a try in a few weeks, when my TBR stack is not quite so tall.
