"When Miss Julia's regular doctor goes on vacation with his wife, leaving a replacement in his stead, Miss Julia is immediately concerned. Never one to miss an opportunity to entertain--or size up--a newcomer, she invites the charming Dr. Don Crawford, and his painfully shy wife, Lauren, to dinner. While Miss Julia and Sam both note Lauren's obvious lack of social skills, it's her friends Hazel Marie and Binkie that pick up on some of Dr. Crawford's less palatable qualities. Meanwhile, Lloyd has gotten his first car, and LuAnne, fresh off her divorce, has started a job at the local funeral home and is in urgent need of an occupation-appropriate makeover--Miss Julia has enough on her plate. Yet there is just something she can't place about the Crawfords, and she won't rest until she gets to the bottom of it."--Provided by publisher.

The title’s appropriateness was not revealed until close to the end, but Julia and Lillian do not disappoint.

Much of the book is about Lloyd: he’s learning to drive, Mr. Pickens bought him a tank to learn in, there’s a school dance coming up, and he is learning the house flipping trade. A few of the standby characters are not in the story at all or are only briefly mentioned, but LuAnne has a job at a funeral home, Horace had a heart attack at home after some vigorous exercise in bed, and the doctor has gone on a long vacation, leaving a “substitute teacher” in charge. There is plenty to keep Miss Julia occupied.
