Mary Kay Andrews, known to many mystery fans for her House Mouse novels published under the name Kathy Hogan Trocheck, makes her mainstream fiction debut with SAVANNAH BLUES, a delightfully funny novel that just happens to include a murder.

Eloise (Weezie) Foley lives in a carriage house behind a townhouse she once shared with her now ex husband, Talmadge Evans III. Weezie makes her living as an antiques picker. She checks out garbage dumps, garage and estate sales, flea markets and the back alleys of Savannah to find antiques to sell to dealers. It is during an unauthorized preview of an estate sale that Weezie finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation when she finds the body of the elegant, Caroline De Santos, the new fiancee of her ex.

There was nothing in this novel that I did not like. The characterizations are all excellent. Weezie and her dysfunctional (in the best southern tradition) family, including her Uncle James who is an ex-priest now lawyer, along with her best friend BeBe and the antics of her dog, Jethro, kept me completely entertained. Steamy Savannah is a great setting and her pacing was swift (put on your running shoes). Add a little romance between Weezie and a chef and you get one of the best recommendations I could give anyone for a summer beach read. Enjoy!
