This is a very short throwback review. I noticed that I had posted a review of Christmas Bliss by Mary Kay Andrews without having posted reviews of the first three books in that series! So I'm going to try to make up for it. Savannah Blues is the first book in the Southern series by Mary Kay Andrews.
Meet Weezie (aka Eloise) Foley, a feisty antiques “picker,” banished by her spiteful ex-husband from the house she herself restored in Savannah’s historic district, who must come to terms with a life that has suddenly changed…and not, it seems, for the better. In Mary Kay Andrews’s delectable New York Times bestseller, Savannah Blues, readers will feel the sultry Georgia breezes and taste sea salt in the air, as they lose themselves in a wonderful, witty tale brimming with sass and peopled by a richly endearing cast of delightfully eccentric characters. Revenge is sweeter than sweet in Mary Kay’s capable hands, and readers of Fannie Flagg, Adriana Trigiani, Emily Giffin, Rebecca Wells, and Jill Conner Browne will definitely want to spend some quality time in Savannah.
In May, 2010, I wrote this on Goodreads:
This book had it all- quirky, lovable characters, intrigue, mystery, Southern setting, plenty of humor, and just a sprinkle of romance. The entire plot was outrageous, yet totally believable. The story came to a wonderful finish with a few pleasant (and one unpleasant) surprise that left me very satisfied.
Looks like I was a lot less verbose in 2010! But now I can begin to fill in "holes" in my list of books reviewed on this blog. :)
