From the Back Cover
Landing a catch like Talmadge Evans III encouraged Eloise "Weezie" Foley to buy a gem of a townhouse in Savannah's historic district. Divorcing Tal got her exiled to the backyard carriage house, where she has launched a spite-fest with Tal's new fiancé, the elegant Caroline DeSantos.
An antiques picker, Weezie 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. But an unauthorized sneak preview at a 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.

Savannah Blues makes you want to immerse yourself in the hot and muggy Savannah and experience the town, the people, the food, and the old plantation homes. Weezie is a high-spirited, funky antique picker and who wouldn't want to go exploring with her? Intrigue around every corner and cabinet...oh, and don't forget her cheating ex, her sexy new beau, and of course her loving and maniacal family members.
Great books to read on the beach, by the pool, or while on vacation. I never get bored reading any of Ms. Andrews books and can't wait for her new book coming out June 2013: "Ladies Night".
Can this woman ever write! The story just flies, with fun on every page. It is not merely the plot--which is excellent--but also the prose that makes Andrews' work such a treat.
In addition, the author clearly knows her antiques, and anybody reading one of her tales will come away with a painless education in the decorative arts as a bonus to a damn good yarn.
As I am coming to expect from Andrews, SAVANNAH BLUES has as many layers as an onion, with subplots regarding ecological and historic preservation, alcoholism and even restaurant management.
The characters are vivid, the dialogue sparkles. The author is a woman with amazing powers of observation and insight, and a swell way with a turn of phrase.
Now, I'm off to read her LITTLE BITTY LIES. Can't wait!

Quite an explosive mixture and its not really a surprise, when the girlfriend turns up dead...
This book was real page-turner! So hilarious and with that special sense of humor that the author also shows in her Julia Callahan Garrity-Series,written under the name of "Kathy Hogan Trochek".
I laughed out loud several times and it was great fun.
Weezie and her friends/family are very likeable and the story is enthralling,with the right amount of suspense.
Can't wait to read more !!!
