Miss Julia Meets Her MatchBook - 2004
Sharp as a tack and proper as afternoon tea, Miss Julia has won a devoted and ever-growing legion of fans. But are Miss Julia's single days numbered? In Miss Julia Meets Her Match , her longtime beau, Sam Murdoch, wants to tie the knot. But Miss Julia isn't about to give up her independence so easily. At the moment there are many other matters that require her attention, such as Dwayne Dooley's plans to build the Walk Where Jesus Walked Christian theme park-a re-creation of the Holy Land complete with actors, sound effects, and trailer hookups. Meanwhile, the whole town is buzzing with rumors. The preacher's secretary was spotted leaving a sleazy motel with the mayor's car parked nearby. The preacher's wife, always sternly opposed to any "artificial adornment," is suddenly sporting a complete cosmetic and fashion makeover. Even Miss Julia's own home is not immune to shock waves-the arrival of Latisha, housekeeper Lillian's five-year-old pistol of a great-granddaughter, shakes up Miss Julia's household like a bunch of Fourth of July firecrackers. But can Miss Julia's cool-as-a-cucumber head help her heart make the decision of a lifetime?
