Weezie Foley is the owner of an antique shop in downtown Savannah. She is intent on winning this year's window dressing contest, but her fruit-based displays are sabotaged by hungry but otherwise mysterious vandals. She quickly comes up with a new theme, "Blue Christmas." Turns out that Blue Christmas is a theme for more than Weezie's window display: her boyfriend is too busy with work to celebrate the holidays, her neighbors are angry at her mutt dog Jethro for knocking up their pedigreed pup, and someone has been sneaking into Weezie's store and home.
I bought this book as part of a cozy mystery lot on eBay, but I would classify it more as chicklit. There is a very, very small amount of mystery, but it is more a vehicle for humor. This book is a breeze to read, and Weezie and the occupants of her town will provide you with an entertaining diversion during the holiday season.
If you think you're own family is dysfunctional and some family member always seems to ruin the "Holidays", you will enjoy this story. Weezie (the main character) invites her boyfriend's relatives for Christmas dinner. What happens will have you laughing and then you will realize the actions of your own relatives might be mild by comparison.
Finished up this series and really enjoyed it. I like the author's writing style. Her books are fast and easy to read. Wonderful for just relaxing with a fun story. Don't miss her books if you are looking for easy read laced with Southern humor. recommend if you like this type of book.
This was a very easy read. Entertaining enough but in a simple way, where you can figure things out before the author wants you to. I was looking for something a bit more complex. I loved Mary Kay Andrews' book The Fixer Upper, though. Wish this one had been in the same ballpark.
Very funny, great read! I just love how Mary Kay Andrews has created the zany character of Weezy! Wonderful story of Christmas in the south. Loved the mystery of Apple Annie. The Blue Christmas window was wonderful! Great quick read. Mary Kay Andrews is a wonderful story teller!
If you loved Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze you'll love this quick read! Weezie and Bebe are back for a funny Christmas story! I really enjoy the characters of Weezie and Bebe and their family and friends. I would like to see her put out another book with them in it.
This book is heartwarming funny, entertaining, and it has recipes at the end!
Weezie owns an antique shop. She has a boyfriend who she loves, but who is married to his restaurant. She has a best friend. She has eccentric neighbors, family members, and a mystery guest who is breaking into her house and shop to eat food, borrow stock, and leave her Christmas presents.
She is inspired to make her entry to the town's Christmas light contest,in a Blue Christmas theme.
Get ready for a fun listen with some laughs, a little bit of mystery along the way, and a wonderful happy ending! I highly recommend this book.

This is a novella, so it is a quick little read. While it is predictable, I enjoyed it as something to wind down with at the end of the day and not have to think too deeply. Not my fave by this author, but still fun to read.
Short novella with the stars of "Savannah Blues" and "Savannah Breeze". Its Christmastime in Savannah and Weezie is trying to win a decorating contest. She loves Christmas while her boyfriend Daniel does not. Another winner for me.
Recurring characters from the author's series about Savannah and a cast of characters. Fun, breezy, always an enjoyable read with great feeling of location (I've never been there) and interesting, amusing people.
