    Another great book in this southern mystery. These characters are fun and loveable.

    I wanted to like this one, I really did. But despite the heroine's apparent history as an astute business woman, she spent the first couple chapters acting so darned stupid. Eventually I ran out of sympathy and stopped caring about how she would dig herself out of this mess.

    Southern belle and three time divorcee BeBe Loudermilk (pronounced "Bay Bay") loses all of her wordly possessions, including her restaurant and three historic homes in Savannah, to charming con man and professional "investment counselor", Reddy. This, of course, is the result of a hot and heavy relationship with said investment counselor. And then there is the matter of a teeny tiny misunderstanding over a Durable Power of Attorney. BeBe soon discovers that the only thing left - besides her pret Southern belle and three time divorcee BeBe Loudermilk (pronounced "Bay Bay") loses all of her wordly possessions, including her restaurant and three historic homes in Savannah, to charming con man and professional "investment counselor", Reddy. This, of course, is the result of a hot and heavy relationship with said investment counselor. And then there is the matter of a teeny tiny misunderstanding over a Durable Power of Attorney. BeBe soon discovers that the only thing left - besides her pretty white Lexus and the clothes on her back - is a ramshackle motel on Tybee Island, a self-described drinking village with a fishing problem. BeBe moves into the manager's unit, enlists the help of hunky fishing captain turned caretaker, Harry, and works hard to turn a quick profit on the crumbling mess so that she can re-open her restaurant. When Reddy is spotted in Florida working another con, BeBe drops everything to pursue him and re-claim what is rightfully hers. She organizes a makeshift posse that includes her best friend, Weezie, (Savannah Blues), her chef a/k/a Weezie's boyfriend, Daniel, and Grandfather Loudermilk. With Grandfather Loudermilk snoring in the backseat (and occassionally demanding to stop off for Kit Kat bars!), the foursome make the drive to Florida to pull off a crazy and semi-illegal caper that will get BeBe's money back. I love this author's sense of humor and quick wit. She has a true talent for writing colorful characters. BeBe should have come across as a total airheaded idiot, but instead she is a smart, strong, successful woman who just happened to take a wrong turn in life. The loving relationship between BeBe and her grandparents was touching to read about and I got a kick out of the way she handles the headstrong and hunky Harry. I'm not quite sure how to categorize this series - it's not quite chick lit, not strictly romance, and a little light on suspense. For now, I'm going to call it good old-fashioned Southern lit with a hint of comedy. =)

    Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews With what happens to BeBe Loudermilk (pronounced BayBay naturally!) in this book, you might think tat this was going to be a very depressing read. I’m happy to say, it is not. Out of the three “Southern” books in this trilogy, this is by far the funniest and quirkiest.

How Ms Andrews could find us the humor in the facts that a very smart woman looses everything she owns to a con man, makes for an amazingly talented writer. BeBe, as I said looses everything she owns and then some, to a very slick con man. When she is at the end of her rope, she finds that she somehow now owns a nearly derelict motel. She seems to be in possession of a handyman/ manager too! Frankly, this works out to her advantage in so many ways! As Bebe, Weezie (whom you met in “Savannah Blues” where her story is told) Harry (the handyman/manager) and of all people, Spencer, Bebe’s grandfather, decide that they are going to hunt down and take down (in a non-violent way) the conman the story becomes 30% intrigue, 20% romance and 30% comedic. This leaves 20% to deal with the deep soul-searching changes that are bound to happen when a life-altering event like this crashes down on someone. As I’ve said this is a funny, deep, frightening and altogether realistic look at something most of us think could never happen to us. The characters are written with Ms Andrews usual compelling style and are so realistic I could swear that I went to school with a couple of them! The descriptions of the area are such that I feel that I can see perfect pictures of the place in my head, and it is so clear that it is almost as if I’ve been there. Savannah Breeze truly will make a perfect beach read, but be aware that at times people around you may look at you funny when you start chuckling out loud.

    Wow. What a great book. This was one of those where you read so fast because you can’t wait to see what happens next. This has to be one of my favorites. This is the sequel to Savannah Blues. This time, the story focus is on Be Be. She meets this guy who sweeps her off her feet and then sweeps everything out from under her. The only thing she has is a bunch of little cabins on Tybee Island. The guy is a con artist and conned her out of everything. Her properties, her money and her grandparents j Wow. What a great book.

What happens next is hilarious. I don’t think I have read a funnier book. I am on my way to add Andrews other books on to my wish list.

(hide spoiler)] OTHER THINGS I DID NOT LIKE: I did not feel warm at the end. It was a bland feeling. I wanted more emotional interaction with the main couple. Getting them together was too abrupt and felt thrown in at the end. The book is told in 1st person point of view which I don’t like. It’s also dual 1st person. Most chapters are in BeBe’s POV. Some chapters are in Weezie’s POV. Each time the author switched to Weezie’s POV, I was confused. It was hard for my mind to keep thinking that Weezie was talking not Bebe. There is no sexual content. There were one or more comments that sex happened, but no details. That’s ok with me, but I would have liked more emotional interaction with the main couple. WHAT I LIKED: I love the plot concept: con man and getting back at the con man. DATA: Narrative mode: 1st person BeBe and Weezie. Story length: 431 pages. Swearing language: strong including religious swear words but rarely used. Sexual content: none shown. Setting: current day Savannah, Georgia and Tybee Island. Copyright: 2006. Genre: contemporary romance.

    Another cute and quirky book by Mary Kay Andrews. # 2 in the Southern series was pretty good with just a few slower parts. The typical happily ever after ending, but that’s OK with these books.

    great combination of friendship, adventure, romance, food, bargain-hunting, and redecorating. I liked this! didn't realize til now this is a #2 in a series, I will have to read #1. One thing I didn't like is how most of the chapters are written from Bebe's perspective, but periodically a chapter will say "Weezie" and come from her perspective. I felt this really broke the flow of the novel.

I know chick-lit isn't ever going to be some sort of fantastic work of art, but this wasn't even a middle-of-the-road-okay book. There were just too many questionable details for me to enjoy this book. First, if Reddy stole all of BeBe's money, possessions and property, how come he didn't take the restaurant and the inn? That was never explained, not to mention the fact that they just glossed over how and why she acquired the inn to begin with. And then, how come she had to close Ugh.

I'm guessing it wasn't profitable on it's own, but again, that was never explained. Second, who was "Roland"? I know that they were talking about Reddy/Roy/Rory, but "Roland" was never an established cover name. And yet, towards the end of the book during the Rory phase, they called him "Roland" three or four times. What? Was that an editing mistake or did I completely miss something? Third, the romance between BeBe and Harry switched gears way too fast for my liking. In true chick-lit form, they dislike each other at first meeting and end up together in the end. But, that transition period of "Wait, he's not so bad, maybe there's more to him that I had originally thought" never really happened. They went from begrudgingly working together because the situation demanded it to wanting each other so very badly without a hint of change. Too formulaic and forced for my liking. And finally fourth. The main character is BeBe. To me, this is pronounced like Bee-Bee. However, about 200 pages in, she finally mentions that it's actually pronounced Bay-Bay. Seriously? I mean it's fine if that's how it's pronounced, but why wasn't that little detail mentioned back in the very first paragraph or two? After 200 pages I couldn't make the change in my mind and kept on calling her Bee-Bee. Sorry, not my cup of tea.

She meets a charming and gorgeous man that helps her in her time of need while her grandmother is sick and hospitalized. But all is not as it seems and her knight in shining armor turns out to be anything but and is actually a crook and con artist, who takes all her money and than some. He leaves her high and dry and pretty much penniless. This is where the real story picks up with Bebe having to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and try to find to track down this thief. Along the way, she meets what may very well be the love of her life. Along with this man, her junk/antique dealer friend and grandfather, they take a road trip to find this con artist, get her money and life back, as well. In all honesty though, there is just something about the heart of the south stories that get this New Yorker excited. Also, the best part of this novel by far are Bebe’s grandparents, especially her grandfather, Spencer as he truly is such a colorful and fun character that I couldn’t resist giggling at many of his comments and actions. This one didn’t disappoint and was a very easy and fun read.

    The first half of this book is really slow. It picks up once BeBe and company head to Florida. Though this book got rave reviews from other library patrons, I didn't like it. I couldn't like BeBe. I don't have anything in common with BeBe and found her hard to relate to. I found it hard to believe anyone could be that naive and trusting, especially after two ex-husbands and an ex-fiance.

I also didn't think there was much chemistry between BeBe and the love interest. The romance was rushed and the ending very abrupt. Some of the story is told from Weezie's point of view. I enjoyed Weezie's character more than BeBe but her narrative interrupted the flow of the story. I would recommend this one for someone who is looking for escapist reading without much substance.

    I unabashedly love Mary Kay Andrews' Weezie & BeBe books. They are lighthearted fun, and entertaining. I adore Savannah and the Georgia Sea Islands, so the settings are always perfect and this one includes Ft. Lauderdale. I had read the original book Savannah Blues, which introduces the characters of Weezie and BeBe. The first book is devoted primarily to Weezie, her mystery to solve, and her new found man, Daniel.

Not great literature, but a frolicking summer read.

    I'm a southern fiction nut and I'm so glad to have discovered Mary Kay Andrews! She explores the southern culture and experience, but unlike Reynolds Price and Pat Conroy (my other favorites), her writing is light-hearted and fun. Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze are my two favorites by this author because she has time to detail and develop two memorable characters: BeBe and Weezy. I also love "junking" and this is the first author who incorporates this southern past-time into her plot.

    What a fun read! Mary Kay Andrews brings the south and its' belles, to life! This story is about Bebe and her troubles. She gets conned and makes it her mission to con the con man, AND...well, i will not give too much away, but it has a happy ending! This is a great beach read and a winter read on the couch in front of the fire....enjoy.

With nothing else to loose, BeBe heads out to the Breeze and finds Hank, the cranky manager and a hotel that is in needs of lots of work - work she can't redily afford. This novel is a great fun to read and I found myself flying through the pages. The things that happen to BeBe somewhat seem a bit farfetched but Mary Kay Andrews tells it so simply and honestly that it seems that you could be reading the story of your friend who found herself in a pickle. A typical chick-lit book but a fun ride.

    I liked Savannah Breeze better than I liked Savannah Blues. The situation made more sense to me - it was a bit of a stretch to me how she acquired the Breeze Inn and then it somehow got overlooked when everything else was taken from her, but I quickly got over that - and although I liked Weezie in Savannah Blues, I like BeBe better. She's more relatable to me as a character. I also liked Harry better than Daniel and how straightforward BeBe and Harry's relationship was.

You do not need to read Savannah Blues to enjoy Savannah Breeze and although there are a few references to it, they are minor and don't detract from the reader's understanding or enjoyment of the story in any way. I recommend you skip Savannah Blues and jump straight into Savannah Breeze instead.

    I truly enjoyed this book! It's not going to become a classic and it's not going to win any awards for great literature, but it was very well-written, the characters were three-dimensional and fun, and the plot had an excellent pacing to it. I didn't quite see the ending before it happened, so there was still a little element of surprise. To sum it up: Lemon meringue pie. The characters are sweet ladies, but they've got a little tart to them when you get their gander. The book was pre I truly enjoyed this book!

I already checked out the next audiobook from my library!

Case in point: +She waited IN HER CAR overnight to go check her other rental properties, and then waited a couple MORE DAYS to see her attorney, after having discovered her townhome with a Sold sign on it and all her stuff gone. This AFTER having been kicked off the (borrowed) yacht that "Reddy" was trying to steal from another man (somebody or other Yglesias) who had called the police. When did Ms. Bebe call the police? She never did; Attorney James did it for her. This is a single example of many in which Bebe had someone else do the work for her. I got super-tired of this, super-quick. I liked Weezie MUCH better (despite the antiquing), and enjoyed her portions of the book the most; since book #3 in the so-called Southern series is a Weezie story I'll probably read it. I did like the grandparents in Savannah Breeze though, they were probably the highlight for me. No more Bebe, though, thanks. Edited: while I have confirmed that I can't do Audiobooks (too slow for me), Ms. Keating - narrator of Savannah Breeze is excellent, and very talented at accents without going cheesy or overdone.

The only thing I didn't like about it was Bebe. I really enjoyed her in Savannah Blues, but in this one she came off as a nicely wrapped gift with nothing inside. I was surprised that she was so easily taken by Reddy. She kept saying how she was this 'business woman' but yet she readily signed papers he gave her without even reading them. Her grandfather Spencer almost made up for it. He definitely kept me laughing.

    I loved Savannah Blues so I was really excited to read Savannah Breeze. I was a little disappointed that it was more about Bebe than it was Weezie. I just loved the character of Weezie so much. The book did surprise me though and I really enjoyed reading how Bebe dealt with the blow she received in the book and how things turned out in the end. I've read Blue Christmas already (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and I really hope Mary Kay Andrews writes more books with these characters (Weezie, Daniel, I loved Savannah Blues so I was really excited to read Savannah Breeze.

    Don't write a book with dual first-person POV. It's annoying as a reader. BeBe is a better character than Weezie, but she makes stupid choices. The revenge plot is like whaaaaa unbelievable (entertaining though), and Granddaddy is my fave.
