Short and funny and full of Christmas feel goods. ( )

Non mi aspettavo chissà cosa, una lettura leggera e nulla più, invece ho trovato anche meno. Gli unici passi gustosi sono quelli sul negozio di antiquariato e le aste di robivecchi, tutto il resto è banale e frettoloso. ( )

I didn't think I was going to like this one. Too much controversy at the beginning. Mean, gay neighbors who seemed to be pilfering Eloise's store display, a beloved dog who is missing and a boyfriend that I suspected was married.

However, it was a quick read and turned out to be quite enjoyable. The gay men weren't really mean at all (although there was that loose thread on who left the back gate open for their boutique dog), the boyfriend really was busy at work, and the beloved dog was found quickly and in fine health.

What set this one back for me was the implausibility of the family dinner (one or two crazies per family, please; not a half dozen!) and the tidy relationship subplot of Daniel's. Although I really should have seen that coming, since Andrews dropped so many hints.

All-in-all, this was a pleasant book that set me back only one day. I will probably read more by this author, and now that I realize that this is a series, I will start at book one. ( )

Weezie Foley, antiques dealer, decorates her shop for the Christmas decorating contest. When it's vandalized, she comes up with a new idea - to decorate mostly in blue, as that's how her boyfriend feels at Christmas. His mother walked out on him and his brothers and he's never liked Christmas. Weezie tries to bring her boyfriend's brothers and wives together for Christmas dinner and runs into a few problems. In the meantime, some of her things mysteriously disappear from her house, car and shop. She has a lot to deal with.

This was a light story with Southern humor, sassy characters, occasional edginess and lots of Christmas activity, good and bad. Overall, it was an decent holiday read. ( )

Great holiday fun read. Love the characters and the "Southern Charm" of the story. More than just a fluffy novella, the story is funny but with a serious twist. Andrews' characters come alive on the page, making you feel that you're part of the community. ( )

I was just hot-gluing the last popcorn-and-cranberry strand to the second of two five-foot-high topiary Christmas trees when my best friend came breezing into Maisie's Daisy.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060837349, Hardcover)

The popular Mary Kay Andrews delivers a tasty holiday treat as she brings back the winning characters from Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze for a little Southern cheer.

It's the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to do up her shop for the Savannah historical district window decorating contest––which she intends to win. She throws herself into putting up a Graceland/Blue Christmas motif, with lots of tinsel, an aluminum tree, and all kinds of tacky retro stuff. The project takes up so much time that Weezie is ready to shoot herself with her glue gun by the time she's done, but the results are stunning. She's sure she's one–upped the owners of the trendy shop around the corner. But suddenly, things go missing from Weezie's display, and there seems to be a mysterious midnight visitor to her shop.

Still, Weezie has high hopes for the holiday––maybe in the form of an engagement ring from her chef boyfriend. But Daniel, always moody at the holidays, seems more distant than usual.

Throw in Weezie's decidedly odd family, a 1950s Christmas tree pin, and even a little help from the King himself, and maybe there will be a pocketful of miracles for Weezie this Christmas eve.
