Product Details


“Fans of Ann B. Ross will love this book! Etta Mae Wiggins is the funniest character to come down the pike since Miss Julia showed up to speak her mind. I laughed all the way through it. Hooray for Etta Mae!”
— Fannie Flagg, author of The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion

“Ann B. Ross has given us an irresistible heroine. Spirited, sassy, and thoroughly charming, Etta Mae Wiggins manages to turn a day of misfortune and mishaps into an endlessly entertaining adventure, with the perfect dose of wit and romance. Etta Mae sashayed off the page and straight into my heart—I adored her and rooted for her from the start.”

— Erika Marks, author of It Comes in Waves 

“Smart and sweet, bold and brash, and, above all, determined to better herself, Etta Mae Wiggins will win your heart. Ann B. Ross’s wit and ear for dialogue are at their best in this delightful romp from a low-rent trailer park to the upper crust of Abbot County, North Carolina.”

—Vicki Lane, author of the Elizabeth Goodweather Appalachian Mysteries

“Any book by the beloved creator of the Miss Julia series is a cause to celebrate. Etta Mae is one of the South’s pluckiest, most endearing characters, and readers will love her fun, fast-paced adventures.”

— Michael Lee West, author of A Teeny Bit of Trouble 

“The curvaceous spitfire Etta Mae Wiggins will swing through the streets of Abbotsville and straight into your heart. What a most excellent bad-luck-day ride!”

— Charlene Baumbich, author of the Dearest Dorothy novels

“Ann B. Ross’s Miss Julia books are always a delight, and Etta Mae’s Worst Bad-Luck Day is no exception.”
—J.A. Jance, author of Moving Target

[A] wonderful blend of snort-out-loud funny, heartstring-tugging and social commentary.”
— Hendersonville Times-News

“Miss Julia exhibits all the primness and properness of a well-bred southern lady of means, with a whole lot of spice, initiative and sense of adventure thrown in, appealing to women of all ages and to lovers of humorous southern fiction. . . . Etta Mae’s Worst Bad-Luck Day stars another character from the series, Etta Mae Wiggins, the home-care nurse and sometime manager of the Hillandale Trailer Park . . . Fans of the Miss Julia series will have plenty of the usual comedy.”
— Wilmington Star-News

“Once again the author has blended her Southern wit and charm with a fast paced story that will have you laughing and crying. . . . This is a priceless close-up look at the lovable Etta Mae. This book can be read on its own, but don’t be surprised to find yourself curious about Miss Julia and other adventures Etta Mae has assisted her with. Etta Mae’s Worst Bad-Luck Day is an entertaining, hilarious and lively adventure you don’t want to miss.”
—Thoughts In Progress

 “Etta Mae’s Worst Bad-Luck Day is a very special, one-time-only publishing event for Ann B. Ross and her legions of fans as they await the next Miss Julia novel.”
