    Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews (MyBookBarn)
    MyBookBarn: This is the second book in May Kay Andrews Savannah series. It's just as highly entertaining as Savannah Blues & I highly recommend! Fans of Antiquing, who-dun-its or southern lit (humor) should check out this book!

The perfect book for one of the dreary winter days when one's home with a cold. It's simple, light, well enough constructed, and what's not to love about Savannah? ( )

Definitely a good summer beach read and thoroughly enjoyable! I had not read any of Andrews's books, but I may have to read more of them. There is a mystery going on in Savannah, but there is so much humor, it's not a dark whodunit at all. I love the main character, Weezie, and of course the setting is perfect. Since I am a frequent visitor to Savannah, I can see the places in the book very well. There is a murder, but it's no one you'll like, so it's ok (at least when it comes to fiction - not in real life!). Think Evanovich on a slightly more serious level. ( )

Eloise (Weezie) Foley is officially divorced from her cheating ex-husband Tal Evans. Weezie has gained possession of the carriage house as part of her divorce settlement so is literally living at the bottom of the garden of her ex and his new fiancée, aka the other woman, Caroline De Santos. There is no love lost between the two women, and is Caroline’s unmistakable rapping at the front door as the book opens. Trying to earn an income Weezie turns to her passion of finding and selling antiques and finds her stock by foraging through discarded treasures and rubbish in garbage cans, garage sales and at estate sales to repair and resell. When she discovers that a huge estate sale is coming up with some quality stuff, Weezie wants to be first in line to view the goods so she and her friend BeBe sleep in the car out the front of the mansion to ensure first place. In the early hours of the morning Weezie needs to go to the bathroom, trouble is all the trees have cars parked under them so she breaks into the mansion and literally trips over the dead body of Caroline. Weezie is arrested for the murder.

SAVANNAH BLUES handles some very meaty topics in a lighthearted, but never trivialised manner, it is a nice light ‘summer beach’ read. Well written, I found it to be very funny in parts and entertaining for the balance. I would recommend this to someone who is looking for a quick mystery read that is not too heavy and has a touch of romance. I loved the quirky characters such as Uncle James, a closet gay and ex-Catholic priest now turned lawyer, his clients still want him to hear their confessions. Then there is flighty BeBe Weezie’s best friend and owner of pricey bistro, Weezie's alcoholic mother and long suffering and loyal father, and then there is Daniel an old flame from High School, a wonderful cook, good looking and interested in Weezie

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061031356, Mass Market Paperback)

Eloise Foley, known to her friends as Weezie, has been through the divorce from hell. Her ex-husband Tal (aka Talmadge Evans III) was awarded their house in Savannah's historic district, the house that Weezie had spent years painstakingly restoring to its original splendor. Weezie was awarded the two-bedroom carriage house on the same property. Each was sure the other would sell. But Tal has taken up residence in the main house with his new girlfriend Caroline DeSantos (who never seems to perspire or have a hair out of place during the wilting Savannah summer), Weezie is running her antiques business out back, and neither will budge. She's also got a few loony relatives and a hunky former boyfriend to contend with, and if that's not enough, dirty deals aplenty wherever she turns. In this town, where everybody knows everybody's business, something's got to give, and something does...

"Landing a catch like ultra-Wasp Talmadge Evans III got Eloise "Weezie" Foley a jewel of a town house in Savannah's historic district. Divorcing Tal got her exiled into the backyard carriage house, where she has launched a spite fest with Tal's new fiancee, the elegant Caroline DeSantos. The War of the Roses was nothing compared to the escalating hostilities between Weezie and Caroline." "Weezie is an antiques "picker" who combs Savannah's steamy back alleys and garage sales for treasures when she's not dealing with her loopy relatives or her hunky ex-boyfriend. She is convinced that her troubles will be over if she makes a big killing at the upcoming estate sale at a noble plantation house." "But an unauthorized "sneak preview" at the sale lands Weezie smack in the middle of magnolia-scented murder, mayhem...and more. Dirty deals simmer all around her just as her relationship with the hottest chef in town heats up, and she finds out how delicious love can be the second time around."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
