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.

Breeze Inn is a place where the ve

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

Plot was pretty good but I wanted more emotional impact.

(view spoiler)

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
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

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.

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. Her plan to get her money back is not at all legal and I could not believe that her friends would go along w ...more
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

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.

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.

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.

I loved this book. Again Andrews didn't let me down. I recommend this book for a good summer reader.
It is no secret if you follow my reading habits that I love Mary Kay Andrews books. So, when I came across a daily deal on BookBub for this book, which had been on my to read list, I happily added to my collection.

Even though this is the second in this series (the first I have yet to read), I was able to follow along and enjoy the story of BeBe Loudermilk, who is a divorced thirty something Southern belle. She meets a charming and gorgeous man that helps her in her time of need while her grandmo
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

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 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. Savannah Breeze is the second novel and primarily focuses on BeBe. I have to

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

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

This is the second in the Weezie and Bebe series. I love that it is set in the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia. (I lived there for 4 years while attending SCAD). Anyway, in this installment, Bebe falls for this "wonderful" man and ends up getting conned. After losing everything, she enlists the help of her best friend Weezie and they set out with some new friends to set things right. The caper they pull has a good mix of action and humor. All in all, this is a fun book and a fairly quick rea ...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.

I don't know what was worse: the dreadful writing; annoying narrator; inane plot; or the fact that I listened to the entire book hoping it would improve.

This is a very popular author but I cannot understand why. There's nothing wrong with fluff, fast reads, beach reads or whatever you want to call escapist literature. This, unfortunately, was none of the above.
Sep 22, 2014 Vicki rated it it was amazing
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 ...
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.

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.
I really enjoy BeBe and Weezie. Their capers are sort of silly, but fun to read!
