Breeze Inn is a place where the very classy BeBe wouldn't normally be caught dead, but with no alternative, she moves into the manager's unit, vowing to make magic out of mud. The work is grueling, especially dealing with the bad-tempered caretaker, a fishing captain named Harry who's trying to earn enough dough to get his boat out of hock. With the help of Harry and her junking friend Weezie, BeBe soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests.
Then there's a sighting of Reddy in Fort Lauderdale, and BeBe decides to go after him. She puts together a posse, and with the irrepressible Granddaddy Loudermilk snoring in the backseat of the Buick, heads south. The plan is to carry out a sting that may be just a little bit outside the law but that, with any luck at all, will retrieve BeBe's fortune and put the dastardly Reddy in jail, where he belongs. And maybe Harry, who's looking more hunky every day, will finally get his boat back.

"Andrews writes with tongue firmly in cheek, presenting a cast of eccentric characters and a plot that's decidedly over-the-top." (Publishers Weekly)
This audio book was entertaining and enjoyable. The narrator is very good, she kept the characters separate and it was easy to distinguish between them, she spoke clearly. The story held my interest from beginning to end and it was a well structured story. This was a very adverturous story and I didn't want it to end. Well worth the one credit I used for it.
This will be my last Mary Kay Andrews audible book, while the book itself is wonderful, and I highly recommend it, I found the audio book monotonous, and what is worse is that the narrator kept mispronouncing the main characters name as Beebee, not Bay-Bay as is stated in the book itself numerous times! Its small things like these that ruined the audio book for me.
Another cute and charmIng story from Mary Kay Andrews, but the narrator's poor southern accent and inability to pronounce many vital names and places correctly was distracting. Part of that blame must go to the producers too, who didn't keep any continuity between the audiobooks in the same series. Bottom line, it's a good book, but I wish I had read it not listened to it.
The characters that were in Savannah Blues picking up in Savannah Breeze was great! Mary Kay Andrews did an excellent job in continuing the adventures of Bee Bee and Weezy. The new characters were also a welcomed addition.
Mary Kay Andrews should get this audiobook narrated in the unabridged version immediately available. I would buy it immediately, but will now need to buy the hard copy version and read it to get all the details and back story.
Bee Bee was my favorite character. Getting to know her more in this book was great. I found myself relating to her situation in the book which made it easy for me to understand her personality.
Having a different narrator for Savannah Breeze versus Savannah Blues left me not enjoying it sometime. The narrator in Savannah Blues set the tone and voices in my mind for this book. I would prefer the book read to me without voice changes. She made Weezy sound like she was dumb, but actually she was a very smart and savvy character.
Sassy Southern Hospitality is Guaranteed when you check into the Savannah Breeze
Mary Kay Andrews is a great author - love her books.
The story is very good....I liked it. But did not like the narrator...I would have liked listening to this story a lot more if it was read by the same person who read Savannah Blues
Really enjoyed this book. It was my first by Mary Kay Andrews. I will definitely read more or listen to more! Being from Georgia I really appreciate the narrator not over doing the southern accent! It had some laugh out loud moments. I listened to it while traveling from Texas to Arizona, it really helped pass the time.
The book yes, the narrator, no.
Continuation of the fun adventures of Weezie and BeBe (pronounced BayBay!!!)
The first book in this series, Savannah Blues, was excellent, and the narrator sounded genuine. The narrator of this book sounds very fake, and not at all Southern! Each of her Southern male voice attempts sounds awful...they all sound stupid and slow, almost half asleep. The worst is her mispronunciation of several names, most importantly the main character. The author makes a point in the first novel to describe how BeBe got her name, as the BABY of the family, and so it is pronounced "BayBay" if you can't get that right, it sort of ruins the book. Obviously didn't go through any sort of real editing process.
Yes, but only because the story was great.
The story is worth the listen, just be warned of the awful narrator.
Mary Kay Andrews (Kathy Trocheck) is my favorite author. All of her characters are fun and easy to fall in love with . This is my 3rd or 4th Audible of her books. I do look forward to more stories with these characters as well as Uncle James and Daniel. And I've become more of a "Junker" since I've been a fan. I can also say I have read and reread all of MKA's books as well as the "House Mouse/Callahan stories under Kathy Trocheck. Her books are great Beach Reads or really anytime or place. And it is fun to live vicariously through her characters in The Low Country. I vacationed in Savannah and on Tybee Island after I read one of her books many years ago. Her research of an area and/or a subject really shows through. You always feel like you are right there in whichever city right with the characters. Just pick up one of her books and you'll fall in love with all of her flowery characters too !! Time to move on to my newest book of hers, "The Weekenders."
Yes, only problem is some bad language.
When Bebe talked about her grandparent's life.
Yes It is hard to stop listening. This story is especially interesting to a southern girl.
I do enjoy Mary Kay Andrews she writes interesting, fun stories.
No. I didn't pay attention when I purchased the audio book, so it's completely on me that I missed the fact that it was abridged. I won't make that mistake again - I felt like I was missing big chunks of the story. I truly enjoyed Savannah Blues, but the narration on Savannah Breeze is so distracting that I ended up purchasing the actual book just to finish the story. The narrator's impression of Weezie makes one think of a female impersonator. I've listened to other books that Isabel Keating has narrated and didn't find them nearly as impossible to get through as Savannah Breeze.
