Book Review: Savannah Blues



Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews

I was between audiobooks, so I picked up this short (only 5 discs) novel on CD, having enjoyed previous Andrews novels.

BeBe is a successful businesswoman...until she meets Reddy, who swindles her for everything she has, leaving her with only a derelict motel to survive with. What follows is BeBe's quest to make the motel successful, to avoid run-ins with her manager Harry (who turns out to be hunky), and to get back at Reddy - and get her money back.

This is a fun story with lots of great supporting characters, and a fantastic doublecross that keeps the story moving. I didn't really get into the romance, but I wonder if that was abridged from the audiobook. That aspect just wasn't believable to me...

A fun read - I recommend Andrews' books as great beach reads!

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Isabel Keating. She was great at the female voices, but the male voices grated on me a bit.
