Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this spirited sequel to 2001's Savannah Blues, Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk continues to attract the wrong kind of man. Thrice married and divorced, her latest romantic debacle involves Ryan Edward "Reddy" Millbanks, an unscrupulous financial consultant who takes her for nearly everything she owns. All BeBe has left is the Breeze Inn, a run-down motor hotel on Tybee Island, a quirky beach town. With the help of best friend Weezie, an antiques expert with a talent for turning garbage into gold, BeBe is determined to make the property a success. She soon butts heads with Harry, the Breeze Inn's ornery caretaker, but her efforts pay off: seemingly overnight, the Breeze Inn is fully booked and bustling. But when Reddy surfaces via yacht down in Lauderdale, BeBe hits the road with Weezie, Harry and her grandfather (who manages to tear himself away from the Weather Channel) to find the reprobate and make him pay. A former journalist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Edgar nominee Andrews writes with tongue firmly in cheek, presenting a cast of eccentric characters and a plot that's decidedly over-the-top. It's light, pastel fun. (Apr.)

From Booklist

BeBe Loudermilk always picks the worst men, and Reddy Millbanks III is no exception. They meet at a ball and she falls for his charm and good looks. Unfortunately, he steals her money, her business, her home, and her dignity, effectively ending her upscale life in Savannah and saddling her with a rundown motel, the Breeze Inn, on Tybee Island. The motel seems hopeless and the manager-cum-handyman even worse. Harry Sorrentino is working at the motel until he can buy his boat back and return to his life as a fisherman, and he is not prepared for the high-strung new owner and her friend, Weezie, who transform the drab inn into shabby chic. BeBe then concocts a plan to fleece Reddy with the help of Weezie, Harry, and BeBe's grandfather. This motley crew gets in and out of hilarious jams, while BeBe discovers what is really important to her. This truly enjoyable sequel to Savannah Blues (2002) is packed with Andrews' trademark wit and humor. Patty Engelmann

Review

“Fun and fast-paced, yet emotional and warm.” (Rocky Mountain News)

“Lively...Andrews lays on lots of Savannah atmosphere and Southern charm.” (Boston Globe)

“Andrews is a practiced comic who detonates a laugh on nearly every page. She has great fun affectionately sticking the skewers through a certain type of Southern lady, bless her heart, for whom the phrase ‘What would Momma say?’ carries even more weight than ‘What would Jesus do?’” (Star News (Wilmington, NC))

From the Back Cover

The Breeze Inn is a place where very classy Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk normally wouldn't be caught dead. But a brief, disastrous relationship with gorgeous "investment counselor" con man Reddy has costs her nearly all her worldly possessions. All that's left is the ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Island, "a drinking village with a fishing problem." Moving into the manager's unit, BeBe vows to make magic out of mud, and with the help of the Inn's cantankerous caretaker, Harry, and her junking friend, Weezie, she soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests.

But all it takes is one Reddy sighting in Fort Lauderdale for BeBe to drop everything and haul her hastily assembled posse south to participate in a somewhat outside-the-law sting. With a little luck, BeBe might get her fortune back, Harry (who's looking hunkier every day) might get his boat back, and Reddy might get the prison stripes he so richly deserves.

From AudioFile

Listeners should fetch a tall glass of sweetened iced tea, engage their imaginations, and come along for a delightful ride. Moira Driscoll gives an impressive performance of this fun novel in which a zany cast of characters helps wronged BeBe Loudermilk set things right. From BeBe's grandparents to the slick con man who steals her blind, Driscoll's vocal characterizations are right on target. Her depictions are equally convincing when fisherman Harry and junk dealer Weezy take on the roles of a rock star and his wife to save the Loudermilk fortune. Driscoll's treatment elevates this book from a fun listen to top-notch entertainment.
