The irresistible, indefatigable Miss Julia is back, turning the tables on a thief who chose the wrong belle to burgle
Having earned a devoted following for her rollicking antics and unshakable poise, Miss Julia's eighth outing begins with an unfortunate discovery. Her cherished engagement ring-an exact replica of Princess Di's-turns up missing after a party, making her the latest target of a Florida- based gang who, according to Sergeant Coleman Bates, has been denuding Dixie of its jewelry. Incensed, Miss Julia packs Little Lloyd into the car and heads south to claim what is rightfully hers-and to show the feds that there's more than one way to do reconnaissance: selling the Good Book!

"With Miss Julia's darling Sam off on a long-planned trip and Hazel Marie vacationing in Mexico with Mr. Pickens, life is simply too quiet for Miss Julia. Of course, she has Little Lloyd to take care of (though he's not that little anymore and she's trying to remember to call him Lloyd). And she has her housekeeper, Lillian, to take care of her. So what's she to do? Throwing a party for her closest twenty-five friends only keeps life exciting for one day, after all. Just as the party glow fades, she discovers that her dearest, most precious possession is missing - and there's really only so much Sergeant Coleman Bates can suggest other than letting the police take care of the investigation." "One stakeout, surreptitious surveillance (and you'll never guess what kind!), possible Fed involvement, and a madcap car chase later, Miss Julia finds herself closing in on her dearest treasure. Will she get it, and what will she risk to do so? Even Miss Julia wonders if this time she's gone too far."--BOOK JACKET.
