A delightful standalone novel as told by the sassiest character in the beloved New York Times bestselling Miss Julia series. Don't miss Ann Ross's newest,  Miss Julia Weathers The Storm , coming April 2017 from Viking. 

Heart-of-gold, hardscrabble Etta Mae Wiggins has bewitched Miss Julia fans as the steel magnolia's sidekick in several New York Times -bestselling novels. At last, Etta Mae gets to speak for herself, and longtime readers and newcomers alike will love her story and her opinions of Miss Julia.

Growing up, Etta Mae couldn't escape her daddy's no-good name--or the attention of every roving eye in town. But when she becomes the home nurse for an elderly man who is Abbottsville's wealthiest resident, she sees an opportunity to say sayonara to her trailer-park days once and for all. However, a number of interested parties are less than thrilled by the thought of wedding bells, and she'll have to work fast to marry Mr. Right on the worst bad-luck day of her life.

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!
