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....

A good clean read which is hard to find these days. It reminded me of home the south .It is nice long read with a complete story not a hack job
I'm a sucker for southern everything, but this one just brings it all in -- you get the history and the modern well-to-do's and that one character that you wish you had the chutzpah to be now and again
The narrator had the uncanny ability to capture the soul of each and every one of the characters just as I would have envisioned and then some. Her style was authentic and sassy with all the right amounts.
I loved it. This was my first Mary Kay Andrews book. I've since listened to all that were available. Can't wait for what's next!
I enjoyed the humor and different storyline. I like stories set in the South and found the narrators accent delightful. Will purchase another MKA book right away.
I loved the story and I feel like the two main characters are especially rich with detail. But my favorite part about this was that it was based locally to me, and the research was very accurate, and the narrator. She is amazing! Great southern drawl.
I enjoyed this book so much Mary Kay Andrews ! I could read the series everyday ! The characters and Savannah life make it seem like you are there !
Unlike a lot of books to which I have listened, this one was not set in some glamorous locale with some prince or duke who was filthy rich. It was sweet and working class and I loved it! I could relate to it. Very much enjoyed the voice of the reader. I have listened to many of her JD Robb book readings. Excellent reader!
