Book Review - Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third in the “Savannah” books and was a thoroughly enjoyable read. It brings back Weezy and her crazy family, Weezy’s boyfriend Daniel, and introduces his crazy family, and of course, BeBe is back as well, along with Jethro, the dog, and new characters, Manny and Cookie.

The story revolves around a Christmas decorating contest that Weezy is determined to win. At the same time, she’s planning a Christmas dinner that will introduce her family to Daniel’s family for the first time. Amongst all of this are the antics of Jethro and a friendship of sorts with a homeless woman. The family dinner was hysterical. The decorating contest was fun. And, the friendship with the homeless woman in some ways just spoke to the spirit of Christmas.

My only complaint is that it seemed to just end. I'm hoping this somewhat abrupt ending means that there’s a fourth book in the future. I highly recommend this book, but read the other “Savannah” books first (Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze).
