More About the Author
A former reporter for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, she wrote ten critically acclaimed mysteries, including the Callahan Garrity mystery series, originally under her real name, Kathy Hogan Trocheck. The Callahan mysteries have recently been re-released by HarperPerennial, as Mary Kay Andrews writing as Kathy Hogan Trocheck.
A native of St. Petersburg, Florida (and a diplomate of the Maas Bros. Department Store School of Charm), she started her professional journalism career in Savannah, Georgia, where she covered the real-life murder trials which were the basis of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
As a lifelong ""junker"" the author claims to know the location of every promising thrift store, flea market and junkpile in the southeastern United States, plus many parts of Ohio.
She has a B.A. in newspaper journalism from The University of Georgia (go Dawgs!), and is a frequent lecturer and writing teacher at workshops and book festivals.
Married for more than 36 years to her high school sweetheart, Tom, she is the mother of two grown children and she divides her time between a restored 1926 Craftsman bungalow in Atlanta and a rambling old beach house on Tybee Island Georgia.

I read/listen to many books in this genre - and this is not one that I will even finish. Mary Kay Andrew's Fixer-Upper is a much more entertaining and charming.
Meanwhile Weezie also wants to share a joyful holiday with her boyfriend chef Daniel Stipanek, but he seems more a bah humbug than joy to the world type as he rejects her efforts. Weezie turns to her pal BeBe Loudermilk, her dog Jericho, and her certifiable family to help her learn what bugs Daniel about Christmas. Soon her two mysteries intertwine as Weezie needs a miraculous gift from the Magi if she is going to convert her beloved from being a Scrooge clone.
The latest Weezie-BeBe thriller is a blithe holiday romp that will please fans of the two zany women (see SAVANNAH BREEZE and MISSY FIT). The story line is amusing as Weezie recruits her best friend and her family to help her with Daniel. The cast is delightful, but Weezie owns this cheerful (except for moody Daniel) Christmas caper.
Weezie is determined to win FIRST PLACE for shop decorating so fancies up her store window in a 'Blue Christmas' theme. Crazy things start to happen and a mysterious woman enters the picture. It's a well-done little novel and VERY funny when Daniel's family (Weezie's boyfriend) comes to holiday meal. Dogs go wild and you can hear the food hit the floor!
If you're a reader who enjoys simple, fun seasonal reads - try this one!
Mary Kay Andrews breathes a Southern charm into this romantic Christmas tale.
An old lady was seen alseep in the shop front window in the early hours of the morning by a neighbour. When Weezey is woken up and alerted to the apparent break in she rushes there to catch the intruder.The women is gone. Who is this strange old street lady and how does she get into Weezeys shop without breaking in. Then Weezeys back door of her home during the night is left open, food is missing from her fridge and the dog is let out and vanishes into the night. How does someone get into her house?
Weezey is heartbroken looking for her lost dog and not understanding why strange things are happening.
I have read HISSY FIT and SAVANNH BLUES and they all deserve a 5 star rating, Easy, light, fluffy, feel good stories.
