Fan favorite Etta Mae Wiggins takes center stage in the latest novel in Ann B. Ross' New York Times best-selling Miss Julia series 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, Sr., 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 Mae'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. 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' signature wit and southern charm, and will appeal to fans of the beloved series and newcomers alike.

Not part of the Miss Julia series!!
No, I wouldn't recommend this book because it isn't part of the Miss Julia series, even though the title suggests it is Book 16 in the series, I disagree. I was really disappointed in the story and the writing is not in keeping with other titles by Ann B. Ross.
I think I will listen to other titles in the "Miss Julia" series. I do have reservations after listening to Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day.
Julia Gibson gives a fine performance. I have become accustomed to the narration of Cynthia Darlow. Ms. Darlow is the narrator for all 15 titles of the Miss Julia series that I have listened to and therefore is the only voice that I associate with Etta Mae, Hazel Marie and Miss Julia.
Not really. This isn't really a stand alone title but it isn't part of the series, in my opinion.
This title just didn't feel like the usual writing style of Ann B. Ross. The antics written for Miss Julia near the end of the book during the Lingerie Shower/Party were so out of character for Miss Julia that I question did Ann B. Ross write it?
