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 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

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.

Not as fond of this book as I had hoped but still willing to give the series a try. I did have problems with the relationship between the hero and heroine. He hates Christmas and doesn’t support her need to decorate or celebrate. One scene particularly stuck with me. He is griping because she invited people over to her house for Christmas dinner (most are his relatives). She’s not asking him to pay for it, cook it or clean it. She just wants her boyfriend to attend. My first thought was that she ...more

Cute, interesting Christmas cozy mystery. An easy feel-good book and I loved the antique aspect of the story. It also comes with a few great recipes!

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.

This was a cute book. As the third one in the series I kind of feel it was more about getting to know the characters a little bit better than an actual major storyline. In my opinion, none of her characters can compare to Callahan Garrity, but I think this is going to become a good series.

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

A favorite section of the book was the description of Weezie setting the table for the holiday meal with sterling candlesticks (no two of which matched), etched wineglasses from several different patterns, and flow blue Johnson Brothers Claremont. The choice of table cloth was particularly heartwarming:

I smoothed my grandmother's starched white damask cloth over the battered pine harvest table in the dining room, and with my fingertips, traced the tiny patches where she'd so painstakingly mended

This is the first book I have read in this series (this is the 3rd book, normally hate to read books out of order), I thought that this book was very well written, I found it a very sweet book to read. The perfect kind of book to curl up and read.

I haven't read anything by this author before but I definitely will do. This novel features Weezie Foley , she is in full swing of decorating her antiques shop ready for Christmas, this is the perfect festive novel to read, it definitely got me in the m

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

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.

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

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

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 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.

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.

Weird cute Christmassy little short story. I laughed so hard I almost cried at the dinner party scene. Weezie yes was a bit too into the Christmas spirit, but again, it was Christmas, so I personally just let it all slide.
I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this! I thought it was charming, and the atmosphere felt so warm-weather Christmasy (my most familiar!), and very true to Savannah. Wow, I enjoyed a frothy book AND I read it out of order? What is happening to me??

I like that she uses the same charachters in her books. It makes you feel like you've returned to old friends when you pick the new book up. When I go to the beach I like something mindless to read for a day or two to wind down and her books seem to do the trick.
