Savannah Blues | [Mary Kay Andrews]

Savannah Blues

Eloise Foley, known to her friends as Weezie, has been through the divorce from hell. Her ex-husband Tal (aka Talmadge Evans III) was awarded their house in Savannah's historic district, the house that Weezie had spent years painstakingly restoring to its original splendor. Weezie was awarded the two-bedroom carriage house on the same property. Each was sure the other would sell. But Tal has taken up residence in the main house with his new girlfriend Caroline DeSantos.

Publisher's Summary

Eloise Foley, known to her friends as Weezie, has been through the divorce from hell. Her ex-husband Tal (aka Talmadge Evans III) was awarded their house in Savannah's historic district, the house that Weezie had spent years painstakingly restoring to its original splendor. Weezie was awarded the two-bedroom carriage house on the same property. Each was sure the other would sell. But Tal has taken up residence in the main house with his new girlfriend Caroline DeSantos (who never seems to perspire or have a hair out of place during the wilting Savannah summer), Weezie is running her antiques business out back, and neither will budge. She's also got a few loony relatives and a hunky former boyfriend to contend with, and if that's not enough, dirty deals aplenty wherever she turns. In this town, where everybody knows everybody's business, something's got to give, and something does.

    "Boring Conversation, Unappealing Characters"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand all the rave reviews of this book. It is filled with pure conversation that leads nowhere, about trivial, non-plot-driving matters. Much conversation and description about antiques, furniture, buildings. The main character, Wheezie, is totally unappealing as are the other characters. The narrator does their southern accents in a way that makes them sound like African-Americans when many of them are supposed to be quintessentially wasp. Nauseating would be an appropriate adjective here.

    "One of my favorites . . ."

    I really enjoy most of Mary Kay Andrews books. Savannah Blues was the first one I read and is at the top of the list, along with Summer Rental. It's one of those - woman starting over after her life falls apart - my favorite kind of story. Very enjoyable!

    "CHARMING, WITTY, DELIGHTFUL"

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! DID NOT WANT IT TO END.

    The narrator was excellent. I had loved "Fixer Upper" and listened to it 3 times. I will probably do the same for this.

    It is definitely worth the credit.

    I just wish her earlier books were not abridged.

    "Usually enjoy MKA Books - not this one..."
    Would you try another book from Mary Kay Andrews and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Yes, to Mary Kay Andrews - NO to Susan Ericksen. Poor choice of narrator.


    Has Savannah Blues turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    She is not the normal quality for this book - Isabel Keating does a much better job. It was drab and uninteresting. All the characters started to sound alike.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It lacked anything to keep me wanting more. Really not a strong story line at all. Boring descriptions of antiques and houses with no real story to keep you going. I kept tuning out.

    Much Better books -
    Summer Rental
    Hissy Fit
    The Fixer Upper

    These were very hard to "turn off".

    "Easy, fun listen!"

    This was my first Mary Kay Andrews book, and I LOVED it! I am a big fan of The Help, and this was a great southern book with great characters and twists and turns to keep you listening.

    "Delightful"

    This is the 2nd MKA book I've listened to, and I really enjoyed it. The story line flowed well, and the "who done it" question was there right up to the end. I loved the narrator and believed she captured the character's Southern charm perfectly.

    I would recommend this book.

    "Fun story!"
    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Susan Erickson performance and I loved it. She held my interest and made the story fun to listen to. She really brought the characters to life.

    "Great listen!"

    Loved the narration and author. Please write more books Mary Kay with Susan as your narrator! I like books based on the South and books that include history about antiques and old houses. Have listened to this book more than once!
