However, the first 1/4 of the book was so unbelievable I wanted to scream. First, her 2nd husband was sent to prison for looking at computer porn? What? That was so strange and odd. No one goes to prison for looking at porn unless it's child pornography which the book did not state. I didn't understand that whole concept. Didn't the author do any research or were we suppose to believe it just because she said it? Probably 80% of America would go to prison if you could get arrested for looking at computer porn.
Then we are suppose to believe that a competent and very smart business woman who had been supporting herself and building her business for 15 or so years would just sign papers and hand everything over to some guy she just met? Seriously? I mean she had JUST met the guy. She new him for all of what? A week? Someone that ignorant would not have been able to build up a business like she had. I mean she had been married 3 times - she wasn't some wet behind the ears 20 year old. If I had not paid $10 for the book, I probably would have stopped reading it right then. Which would have been a shame because the rest of the book was well written, funny, interesting and fun to read.
So I liked the last 3/4 of the book but the first 1/4 was stupid.
The story was still complete and had plenty of detail, so I can't imagine what I missed by not reading the print.
This was my first Mary Kay Andrews adventure, and I'll certainly seek her books out in future when I want an entertaining, light read.
CAN'T wait to read her next book, this was just that good. I recommend it to everyone who wants to laugh outloud, be sad, angry, hopeful and come to terms with what is truly important in life. I especially got a huge kick and laugh in the beginning when she put an object thru the mail slot at her ex boyfriend s - read the book!!!!
Loudermilk owns one of the most successful and trendy restaurants in Savannah, as well as a number of rental properties. At the annual Telfair Ball, Loudermilk meets the hunky, sexy, and refined Ryan Edward Millbanks, III. They become an item almost immediately. When her life becomes complicated by the hospitalization of her grandmother, Millbanks (an investment banker) starts taking over the care of her properties. Before she knows what is happening, Millbanks has disappeared and she is told by the police that he is a con-artist. Not only that, but he has swindled Loudermilk out of almost everything she owned including her house and all her possessions. The only property she is left with (besides her restaurant which she can no longer afford to operate) is a dilapidated set of beach cottages on Tybee Island. Millbanks used her money to buy The Breeze Inn, but didn't get a chance to liquidate the property before he had to leave Savannah.
At first, Loudermilk is unsure of what to do with The Breeze Inn. She can sell the property for a small fortunate to a developer. But finding herself homeless, she decides to renovate the cottages and make one of them her home with the help of caretaker Harry and with Weezie's vintage furniture. She also hatches a plot to find Millbanks and to get her money back. This escapade is a hoot and involves Weezie, Harry and Granddaddy Loudermilk.
Andrews' books are always fun, but they also come with a message. In Savannah Breeze, we learn that sometimes we find love in the most unlikely places. Material possessions are way over-rated in bringing us happiness. And sometimes what you think might be a personal catastrophe can actually turn out to be a good thing.
I have already purchased another Andrews' book, Blue Christmas--she's that good.
