When developers threaten to bulldoze the old courthouse to make way for condominiums, Miss Julia is dismayed. She enlists the help of Etta Mae Wiggins in a plot to scare off the money by exposing the towns many eccentric characters. Abbotsville has plenty of local color of the kind not usually listed in brochures for upscale condos: Tonyas sex change, Julias stint as a biker chick, Brother Verns evangelistic passion, and a mysterious apparition on a church wall. As if this isnt enough to keep Miss Julia busy, she soon also discovers that several of her friends husbands have vanishedand her own husband seems to be as scarce as hens teeth. Marriages, divorces, fraud charges, and reconciliations all play out against a backdrop of Miss Julias struggle to save Abbotsvilles historic courthouse, her marriage, and her sanity. Miss Julia Paints the Town is another rollicking good ride for fans of the winning series.

Miss Julia is once again in fine form. This series is wearing a bit thin, but is still enough fun that I keep reading it.
