Following the wacky stories of Weezy and BeBe has been loads of fun for me, so I didn't hesitate to pick this one up when I saw it on sale. Who wouldn't pass up a good Christmas story this time of year?

It started off with a bang - Weezy attempts to win a window decorating contest for her antique shop in the historic district of downtown Savannah, but her Christmas decorations come up missing the night before the judging takes place. She suspects the gay couple down the street of sabotage when t

I really enjoyed Weezie and her pluck in the first novel, in this series, however I did not care for her in this one nearly as much.

She meets a homeless woman and the things she does for the lady, while nice, make absolutely no common sense. No woman, or serious business person would behave as Weezie does. I like people to be compassionate and to show care for others but that compassion needs to be within the boundaries of common sense or plausibility and I did not find Weezie's action to fit th

I normally really, really enjoy Mary Kay Andrews' books, but this one didn't live up to par. I enjoyed her other two books about Weezie & BeBe--the characters & story lines were strong and compelling. However, I felt that this story fell flat. The characters seemed one-dimensional, the story was silly, to say the least, and it didn't live up to the Savannah Blues/Savannah Breeze series. I read it because I like the characters and I like Mary Kay Andrews, but it was nothing special.

I wanted to punch the main character in the nose. Or at least shake her really hard and tell her what an idiot she is. A person breaks into your vehicle and steals things. Then breaks into your house and steals things. Then breaks into your business to sleep there overnight--and steals things. And you don't call the cops?!? And the reason you don't call the cops is "Because it's Christmas"? What? ugh. Anyway, this is part of a series, but reading the previous stories is unnecessary. There was a ...more

Sort of a throw-away story from Mary Kay Andrews. Not as funny as her longer novels, and there's not enough interest in the thin 'mystery'. It was better than a kick in the teeth, but disappointing.

Only disappointing because I expect a lot after how I enjoyed Hissy Fit and Savannah Blues.

Blue Christmas was a good choice to get me into the mood for a joyous holiday. This is a light, comfy read, and though it's takes place in the south it's lacks nothing in my Christmas perception.

I really enjoyed the vintage decorating and references to sixties Christmas songs by pop singers. Weezie Foley is out to win the annual Christmas decorating contest for her business, Masie Daisy. She spends a great deal of time and money creating beautiful topiary trees, a fresh fruit door topper and ot

With each book read I become an even bigger Mary Kay Andrews fan. Her wit, humor and southern charm make each of her books truly entertaining and delightful to read. Each book contains spunky and very amusing characters. I look forward to the next book!

Book Description:


Deck the halls with romance, intrigue, and great antiques!


It's the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to garnish her shop for the Savannah historical district contest. She's ready to shoot herself with her glue gun by the time she's done, but the results are stunning. She's certainly one-upped the owners of the trendy boutique around the corner, but suddenly things start to go missing from her display, and there seems to be a mysterious midni

I just finished reading a little book titled, "Blue Christmas," by Mary Kay Andrews which was published in 2006. She has a newer one out called, "Christmas Bliss," which I have yet to get my hands on. "Blue Christmas," is such an enjoyable book, no tears, just good Christmas cheer, a bit of a mystery, a whole lot of fun and vintage decorating. Weezie Foley owns an antique store in Savannah and she is frantically trying to decorate her shop and win the historical district decorating contest, but ...more

I have enjoyed several of Andrews books so I decided to pick this one up for the holiday season. In this book Weezie is determined to win the holiday decorating contest. It was fun to read how she put together a retro 50's scene in her window with items that she had in her store. Her boyfriend, Daniel simply hates Christmas which has Weezie a bit put out but she is determined to make the best of it. And then things start missing but the usual items like money and credit cards aren't taken. The s ...more

This short book Feels like something dashed off to cash in on the holiday market. The whole thing was contrived and implausible. There's no way I'm going to believe that a businesswoman in a high crime area just leaves her house and neighbouring antiques store unlocked so that things can conveniently go missing.

The main character is more wrapped up in material goods than anything else. We have to read a lot of detail about fabrics, antique dishes and other knickknacks, but there's little attent

This is a hard copy book that was signed by Kathy Trouchek herself. It was a cute Christmas story I enjoyed very much. Andrews brings back my favorite charcters from Savannah Breeze and Savannah Blues, Weezie and Bebe. This is just a short novella about the holiday season with Weezie, her boyfriend Daniel, Bebe and her boyfriend Harry and Daniel’s family, who Weezie is just getting to know. I love the antique aspect of these books. Andrews is big in antiques and uses this hobby as a theme in her ...more

Wow, what a fast read. Perfect for the holiday's when you just don't have enough time for something deeper.

This is a good Christmas story that could have been a great one if there had not been so much description - about antiques, antique clothing, decorating, preparing food. Yes, this made for a useful book and yes the series IS about antiquing, but I would have liked a little more depth with the mystery.

The resolution was fantastic and it ended up being more romantic than the last three of the

This was my first Mary Kay Andrews book and it is still my favorite.

I guess I like it so much because it is set around Christmas but I also found the characters very relatable.

As I read other books my Ms. Andrews I see there is always a heroine, who lives in the south and into design. Besides cooking there is also a mystery of some sort to solve.

A quick and sweet book. I was sad when it was done. After this book I promised myself I would read all books by Mary Kay Andrews.

I actually found this book at a dollar store a couple of months ago. December is the only time I have any desire to read about Christmas. I liked this book more than I thought I would, and might try another of Mary Kay Andrews' books. True, it was a bit of a fluff story, but it was a cute, quick read. I see now that this title is #3 in a series, but I never would have guessed. It stood alone just fine and I never felt like I had questions about anything. My gripes were with Eloise's nickname (We ...more

This was my first time reading Mary Kay Andrews, but what a delight. I laughed out loud and scared my dog several times, poor thing. Christmas is coming, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley has her hands full as she tries to decorate her store for the annual Savannah historical district decorating contest. She is in competition with the new trendy boutique across the way and they have pulled out all stops to win. She has the oddest family, a moody boyfriend and missing decorations to contend with. ...more

If you did not grow up in the South or have friends or relatives here, you might not care for this book. In a few places it tries a bit too hard to be drop dead funny, but the nuances would fall flat if you didn't know life here. I was charmed with this, the slimmest volume in Mary Kay Andrews portfolio. It reminded me of myself in places, well loved characters in my town in of my life.

A cute Christmas story about what Christmas is all about. Including crazy Mothers, a dysfunctional family gathering, wacky neighbors and a boyfriend who hates Christmas. Semi chick lit and definitely less cheesy than some of the other holiday books I have read. A bit predictable though. Easy to read and I finished in one sitting.

This book was just right for where I was in my reading "agenda" this week. In other reviews I read, there seems to be a general consensus that it was either too short, too shallow, too unbelievable, too ... something, but I enjoyed it. The story includes updates on favorite characters from the first two books in the series, the introduction of a few new personalties to add to the tapestry that is Weezie's circle of acquaintances, and, of course, events relating to the holiday for which it is nam ...more

Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews brings back her lovable character Weezie from the hilarious Savannah Blues. You'll still enjoy this book even if you haven't read the first one. If you love vintage treasures, Elvis, and all things shabby chic you'll probably like it.
