 The bread turned out great!  So as promised here is the recipe.
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar                                     
3 Tbl lemon juice,fresh or bottled
1 1/2 cups flour (I used 1 cup all purpose & 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbl lemon zest
1/2 cup nuts of your choice (optional)
1 cup Blueberries
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees,grease a loaf pan and set aside.
Mix together the melted butter,sugar,lemon juice and eggs, set aside.  In another bowl mix together the flour,baking powder,and salt,combine dry ingredients and milk alternately into the first mixture.  Fold in the lemon zest,blueberries,and nuts.  Pour into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 60-70 minutes,insert a toothpick into the center,if it comes out clean it is done.  Remove form oven and cool on a rack for 10 minutes,after 10 minutes remove bread from pan and let cool completely.
If you want you can drizzle a lemon and powder sugar glaze over the bread.
2 Tbl lemon juice      
1/4-1/2 cup powdered sugar(depending on how thin or thick you want the glaze)
Mix together in a small bowl,then drizzle on top of blueberry lemon bread.
