Fan favorite Etta Mae Wiggins takes center stage in the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series Bestselling author Ann B. Ross is back with another lively adventure set in Miss Julia's Abbotsville. For the first time, though, she writes from the perspective of another resident: the hardscrabble, heart-of-gold Etta Mae Wiggins. Etta Mae is frustrated with her trailer-park life and her no-good family, and she has big dreams for something better. 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 exhusband 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. In the middle of all this mayhem, Etta Mae has to get that marriage license- before it's too late! A hilarious wild goose chase that takes us from the mansions of Abbotsville to the trailer park that Etta Mae calls home, this book is filled with familiar faces (including Miss Julia, who narrates the first chapter), features Ann Ross's signature wit and southern charm, and will appeal to fans of the beloved series and newcomers alike.

I loved this book! I've read the whole series so far and Etta Mae is one of my favorite characters in the series. There's never a dull moment when Etta Mae's around! Very entertaining and a nice change from everything being about Miss Julia!

Oh my goodness, you just lost me as a fan.this book made Miss Julia sound like such a snob . I disliked the storyline, the language and subject matter...I have to say, I got half way through and there was nothing funny about this book at all. So disappointed and they changed the reader also...just so unhappy

I enjoyed this book, but don't read this one first. You will enjoy it so much more if you have read all of the previous Miss Julia books! Parts of this book made me laugh out loud.

What a hoot!
How could THAT many complications arrive in a person's life in just one day?
You won't believe it, but she gets it done!
