I am reading Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews.
This is my first Mary Kay Andrews book and I am finding it quite an easy enjoyable summer read.
The central character, Weezie, is a recently divorced southern gal who lives in the carriage house directly behind her EX and his new love who share the historic townhouse that Weezie so lovingly restored. She is also a " picker".
What’s a “picker” ? I hear you all wondering out loud.
In the antiques trade it’s a person who goes to garage sales, flea markets and estate sales hoping to purchase (or "pick" out) the good stuff to resell to dealers. If you like to do such things you will get to share in the thrill of the hunt with Weezie. The author was an antiques picker at one time in her real life.
Weezie has a hunky chef for a boyfriend (who happens to have been one of her first sexual conquests well before he was hunky or a chef), a friend with the hots for a mortician, an ex-priest for an uncle who is now her gay lawyer. She needs a lawyer because her ex husband’s new lover’s body just fell from the closet door of the mansion she broke in to because she needed to use the bathroom. And I’m only about a quarter of the way into the book!
If you’re into deep thought-provoking reading material this is one book to skip. If you just want a fun read while sipping an iced beverage in the sun, you may want to get a copy of Savannah Blues.
Personally, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
