Savannah Blues

Yesterday I hosted bookclub. The last two books we have read have been heavy books that require allot of thought so for my book I wanted something light and fun. I also wanted something summery since for me May indicates the start of summer. My pick was Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews and this book hit the spot for me.

This book had a little bit of romance, a little bit of comedy, a big ole murder mystery all taking place Savannah Georgia. All I also forgot there is some history and antiques. The main characters name is Weezie (Eloise) and her best friend is BeBe pronounced BayBay. Weezie comes from a typical middle class catholic family and marries a man from a well to do family. After 10 years of marriage he leaves her for a young blond and in the divorce Weezie is awarded the carriage house of the historical home her and her ex restored. Being a stubborn southern women she takes it and has to live within feet of her ex and the other women. The rest of the story is about how one wrong (or maybe right) step that Weezie takes changes her life forever. Now I'm not going to say anymore so as not to ruin any of the mystery just in case you want to read this for yourself. I actually highly recommend reading it if your in the mood for something light and fun.

My problem now is that my already large desire to visit Savannah has grown tremendously. Add to that the face that Dave and I have not had a vacation since our honeymoon 7 years ago. Of course me being the crazy women I am I have spent the last hour and half researching hotels and tours in Savannah. I have found that it is more affordable than I thought it would be. This just leaves two teeny tiny points; talking Dave into, and finding someone to watch the kids. I know nothing big right. :) I guess a girl can always dream and you never know sometimes dreams do come true.

Sounds like a great book, Jess! I'm going to have to get it and read it. I wish I could have been at book club yesterday, but I so called how I would feel earlier this week. I was zapped. Crashed for a three-hour nap that day and nursed a nasty migraine. Finally feeling close to normal after an insane month! - tif
