Miss Julia Inherits a Mess

MISS JULIA INHERITS A MESS

When a certain member of Abbotsville’s elite group of ladies succumbs to a broken hip and old age, no one is more surprised than Miss Julia to learn from a Delmont lawyer that the will names her as executor of the estate.  Not only does Julia not want to do it, she quickly realizes that she can’t do it—the estate is practically non-existent.  And on top of that, the will lists a large number of beneficiaries which includes the Book Club ladies, the bagboy at the grocery store, and the First Presbyterian Church of Abbotsville.  Where will the money come from?

But all is not lost because the accumulation of furniture in the deceased’s apartment includes several auction-worthy antiques.  Working with an accredited appraiser, Julia gradually begins to put together an estate that will enable her to distribute at least a pittance to each beneficiary—though not enough, it seems, to replace the broken air-conditioner in the church.

Then a possible heir shows up—a nephew who may or may not be who he claims to be.   He says he wants nothing but family pictures, keepsakes, and letters.  Julia would gladly turn the whole mess over to him until an 18th-century cellarette is stolen from the apartment.  She has her suspicions as to the identity of the thief and what he really wants, and those suspicions are confirmed when she finds among the keepsakes a piece of needlework that is more valuable than all the furniture put together.Pre-Order now From:
