“Lively...Andrews lays on lots of Savannah atmosphere and Southern charm.” -- Boston Globe
“Andrews is a practiced comic who detonates a laugh on nearly every page. She has great fun affectionately sticking the skewers through a certain type of Southern lady, bless her heart, for whom the phrase ‘What would Momma say?’ carries even more weight than ‘What would Jesus do?’” -- Star News (Wilmington, NC)
From the Back Cover
The Breeze Inn is a place where very classy Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk normally wouldn't be caught dead. But a brief, disastrous relationship with gorgeous "investment counselor" con man Reddy has costs her nearly all her worldly possessions. All that's left is the ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Island, "a drinking village with a fishing problem." Moving into the manager's unit, BeBe vows to make magic out of mud, and with the help of the Inn's cantankerous caretaker, Harry, and her junking friend, Weezie, she soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests.
But all it takes is one Reddy sighting in Fort Lauderdale for BeBe to drop everything and haul her hastily assembled posse south to participate in a somewhat outside-the-law sting. With a little luck, BeBe might get her fortune back, Harry (who's looking hunkier every day) might get his boat back, and Reddy might get the prison stripes he so richly deserves.

Bebe Loudermilk’s life in Savannah is going fine until she falls victim to a con man who takes everything from her. As she works to rebuild her life, she also makes plans to get revenge on the con man. There are humorous situations, colorful characters, and life lessons to be learned along the way. I found myself waiting to see how she was going to handle and get out of one situation after another. This was an easy, fun read that I enjoyed. I will definitely look for other books by this author.
However, the first 1/4 of the book was so unbelievable I wanted to scream. First, her 2nd husband was sent to prison for looking at computer porn? What? That was so strange and odd. No one goes to prison for looking at porn unless it's child pornography which the book did not state. I didn't understand that whole concept. Didn't the author do any research or were we suppose to believe it just because she said it? Probably 80% of America would go to prison if you could get arrested for looking at computer porn.
Then we are suppose to believe that a competent and very smart business woman who had been supporting herself and building her business for 15 or so years would just sign papers and hand everything over to some guy she just met? Seriously? I mean she had JUST met the guy. She new him for all of what? A week? Someone that ignorant would not have been able to build up a business like she had. I mean she had been married 3 times - she wasn't some wet behind the ears 20 year old. If I had not paid $10 for the book, I probably would have stopped reading it right then. Which would have been a shame because the rest of the book was well written, funny, interesting and fun to read.
So I liked the last 3/4 of the book but the first 1/4 was stupid.
The story was still complete and had plenty of detail, so I can't imagine what I missed by not reading the print.
This was my first Mary Kay Andrews adventure, and I'll certainly seek her books out in future when I want an entertaining, light read.
CAN'T wait to read her next book, this was just that good. I recommend it to everyone who wants to laugh outloud, be sad, angry, hopeful and come to terms with what is truly important in life. I especially got a huge kick and laugh in the beginning when she put an object thru the mail slot at her ex boyfriend s - read the book!!!!
This is not great literature but a fun, mindless read.
