Reviews

Savannah Blues is the story of a woman coming to terms with the sudden changes in her life and of a charming city, Savannah, GA. Eloise "Weezie" Foley has lived in Savannah her whole life and is thinking about leaving owing to a nasty divorce from her cheating husband, Tal Evans III. The divorce settlement has left her living with her dog in the carriage house, located in the backyard of the townhouse that she found, bought, and restored during her marriage. To make matters worse, Tal is engaged and living in the townhouse with sleazy, sexy Caroline DeSantos. Weezie is a "picker," someone who searches through garbage, estate sales, etc., to find discarded items to resell to antiques dealers. When she discovers a dead body while trying to sneak into an estate sale early, things get problematical for Weezie: the murdered woman is Caroline. Read by Susan Ericksen, this novel is filled with funny, likable, attention-grabbing, and quirky characters. A multilayered book that includes antiquing tips, romance, and murder, this heartwarming tale of loss and love is a worthwhile purchase for public libraries.-Carol Stern, Glen Cove Lib., NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

This delightfully breezy, richly atmospheric debut by a former journalist who covered Savannah's infamous Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil murder trials fails to generate much suspense, but it derives its charm from an encyclopedic trove of lore about antiquities and dishy gossip, Southern style. Divorced from blue-blood architect Talmadge Evans III, but still living in a carriage house in the backyard of their restored mansion, Eloise "Weezie" Foley suffers the indignity of having her ex's sexy fiance, Caroline DeSantos, living in the main house Weezie restored herself. As a "picker," Weezie earns her living foraging for discarded treasures in Dumpsters and at estate sales. When she discovers Caroline's corpse in a historic manor house, Weezie is the prime suspect in her murder. To compound her quandary, Weezie's attorney her closeted Uncle James, an ex-Catholic priest is having an illicit affair with a man from the DA's office. Factor in her on-again, off-again romance with old high school flame Daniel Stipanek, counterfeit antiques and her mom's alcoholism, and the plucky heroine has enough problems to drive at least three novels. Unfortunately, the suspense gets lost somewhere among the antiques and Weezie's attempts to consummate her romance with Daniel. But even a denouement that comes way too soon and a junk bin of distractions won't keep readers away. 8-city author tour. (Feb. 20) Forecasts: This appealing effort should do well enough on its own, but if booksellers and publicists play up the Midnight connection, it could soar.
