A fast fun read. The story is a futuristic look at the world with a moon base and secret saucers at area 51 yet everyone is still driving cars. Great for the pool or a quick escape from your day.

One of the best books I will ever read. It is a beautifully written story of a young girl, her training and her life as a geisha. The writers attention to detail is vivid and compelling. Do not start this book at bedtime because you wont want to put it down once you start it.

A great summer read. Murder, romance and fun combine with
divorce, revenge and antiques in steamy Savannah Georgia.


I enjoyed this light summer read and cannot wait for the sequel Savanna Breeze to come out in paperback!
Here is the review From Library Journal
Savannah Blues is the story of a woman coming to terms with the sudden changes in her life and of a charming city, Savannah, GA. Eloise ''Weezie'' Foley has lived in Savannah her whole life and is thinking about leaving owing to a nasty divorce from her cheating husband, Tal Evans III. The divorce settlement has left her living with her dog in the carriage house, located in the backyard of the townhouse that she found, bought, and restored during her marriage. To make matters worse, Tal is engaged and living in the townhouse with sleazy, sexy Caroline DeSantos. Weezie is a ''picker,'' someone who searches through garbage, estate sales, etc., to find discarded items to resell to antiques dealers. When she discovers a dead body while trying to sneak into an estate sale early, things get problematical for Weezie: the murdered woman is Caroline. Read by Susan Ericksen, this novel is filled with funny, likable, attention-grabbing, and quirky characters. A multilayered book that includes antiquing tips, romance, and murder, this heartwarming tale of loss and love is a worthwhile purchase for public libraries.

Rated a 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon by 60 readers.



Enjoy Reading!

This is a great book if you have never read TRUE CRIME novels before. It covers 12 cases some new and some she has written about before. Ann Rule is a master and spend so much time researching and getting to know everyone involved in these true cases. The victims families, the law enforcement detectives, the jurors and most importantly the criminals themselves. Well written and easy to pick up and be able to put down after one or two cases.
