Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk has lost all her worldly possessions, thanks to a brief but disastrous relationship with the gorgeous Reddy, an "investment counselor" who turns out to be a con man. All that's left is a ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Island—an eccentric beach town that calls itself a drinking village with a fishing problem.

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

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.
Amore vista mare è il secondo romanzo della serie 'Weezie and Bebe Mysteries', ma come il precedente (Seduzione al cioccolato - Savannah Blues) è autoconclusivo e si potrebbe leggere tranquillamente da solo. Esiste anche un terzo capitolo (Blue Christmas - La cena di Natale), ma poi apparentemente la serie è stata abbandonata. Nel primo romanzo Weezie, rigattiera, deve difendersi dall'accusa di aver ucciso la moglie del suo ex marito mentre tenta di sventare una truffa nel mondo dell'antiquariat ...more
Savannah Breeze is a fun-filled sequel to Savannah Blues which I have not read (yet). Regardless of not knowing the previous story, BeBe's story was easy to jump into and you never feel too lost not knowing the characters previously. BeBe Loudermilk, a three time divorcee' has found herself in another humiliating situation: a man posed as the perfect man and managed to perfectly leave her without anything besides the clothes on her back, the car she was driving, her restaurant that she can't aff ...more
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.
Comparisons aside, what r

I re-read this, because I had never read the first book ,or the 3rd in this series(Weezie and Bebe Mysteries ). I read it back in '06 when it first came out. It was just as good this time around as the first time, next up is Blue Christmas . But I just got a new zombie book , so I might read it first ...
Mary Kay Andrews could be my new fave southern author. Every book I read of hers, I end up loving. And this one was no exception.

It takes place in Savannah where we meet BeBe Loudermilk a 3 time divorcee who falls for a con man while trying to get over her last divorce.

He takes all her money and clothes and her dignity. But he manages to leave her with a run down motel out in Tybee. She fixes it up with the help of some old friends and new ones too all the while plotting to catch the man that st
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, ...more
Bebe Loudermilk is pretty overwhelmed between her grandmother being in the hospital and her grandfather needing help, her restaurant to run and her rental properties needing sudden repairs. But along comes Reddy, a man she meets at a charity dance, who seems to be the answer to her problems. Who can resist a good looking, well-to-do man, so willing to help out. Of course the reader can see the train wreck before it happens and this guy takes Bebe for not just everything she has, but her grandpar ...more

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.
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.
Not quite as good as Savannah Blues in my opinion. I felt BeBe's character was weaker in this book as opposed to Savannah Blues, maybe that's how she got into so much trouble, though. Still a fun read. Can't wait to read more Mary Kay Andrews.

I am exctied to try the baked crab cakes recipe from the back just as soon as crab meat is affordable again.

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.
This was a very simple but fun read with a little romance and mystery to boot - just what I needed. I will be reading more of Mary Kay Andrews' books!!!
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 pretty fluffy a
Love Love Loved it! Would like to see how everything works out for Daniel and Weezie and BeBe and Harry, but I really loved this book.
Since I have now been to Savannah I can picture the setting of this book much better. It was a fun summer beach read.
What a fun read on a long car trip vacation. This story is so fun with BeBe Loudermilk as the main character who is romanced and bilked out of her home, rental properties, grandparents mutual fund, and clothing and left with a motel on an island. She triumphs in the end and goes after the gigolo that took her money, clothes, property and left her with nothing. She pulls her friends together and with her grandfather they devise a scheme to get her money back and she finds a new man in her life. F ...more
I really enjoy this book. I can see ways where things could have been different in the story telling itself out, but on the whole I must say that I didn't put the book down until it was finished. I LOVE those kinds of books that keep me interested the entire time. A book where a single girl gets so shot down and loses everything, only to see what she has actually gained in the process of losing what she thought was her love. In actuality she found a different part of herself which in the end was ...more
I cracked up laughing while reading this book.
I liked this book as much as I liked the previous book in this series, Savannah Blues. Again the same characters are back with Bebe Loudermilk taking center stage. Again Ms Andrews takes her realistically flawed characters on a fun romp as Bebe tries to get even with a handsome con man who took just about everything she owned. And again, like Savannah Blues, it was just a fun read. I hope she writes more books with these same characters - they are people I would like to have as real life friends ...more

What a fun book! Weezie is a "picker" - she haunts garage sales, estate sales and dumpsters looking for antiques and treasures. She is living in a carriage house in the historic district of Savannah. Her ex-husband got custody of their refurbished townhome across the yard. He and his fiance are living there making her life miserable. When Weezie discovers the fiance's body at an estate sale stakeout, she is a prime suspect....

The characters are wonderful, the plot moves quickly, and the ending w

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 o
I would have liked this more if I liked Bebe (pronounced BAY-BAY) more. She came across as a spoiled, naive, *cough*DUMB*cough*, southern belle princess who made a whole STRING of bad decisions and then floundered around and waited on other people to help fix things.

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
