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.
HOME RUN!!! Mary Kay Andrews always does a great job.....I've listened to this, probably 5 times in the past three months....it's a great "feel good, make ya smile" easy listen...makes me want to hop in the car and head back to Savannah....
So thankful for audio books!!
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!
Yes, to Mary Kay Andrews - NO to Susan Ericksen. Poor choice of narrator.
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.
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 -
The Fixer Upper
These were very hard to "turn off".
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.
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.
I LOVE to listen to audiobooks - the Audible ap is by far the best thing that's ever happend to my iPhone.
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.
BEBE AND WEEZIE
I WANT MORE BOOKS WITH BEBE AND WEEZIE, THEY ARE GREAT, I LOVE THEM AND WILL BUY ANY BOOK WITH THEM IN IT.
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.
I like historical, southern books - southern accents, antiques - The Ole' West, Ghost Towns, Victorian Era, Southern Humor!!
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!
