    BLUE CHRISTMAS by Mary Kay Andrews (see her website)

    Harper Collins, November 2006

    Savannah antiques dealer Weezie Foley loves Christmas--the food, the decorations, and most of all, celebrating with family. This year, despite a cranky boyfriend with the weirdest family imaginable, she is determined to do it right. She especially intends to win the historical district holiday decorating contest despite stiff competition from upstart dealers Manny and Cookie from across the square.

    But then strange things start happening. Someone sabotages her decorations; her missing dog is mysteriously returned; then someone breaks into her house and steals trays of party food intended for the holiday open house. Weezie suspects the culprit might be "Apple Annie," an elderly homeless woman who is as elusive as she is intriguing. Although Manny and Cookie aren't above suspicion.

    In this short but sweet sequel to Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze, Mary Kay Andrews provides plenty of her trademark Southern humor along with ample helpings of lushly described food and antiques galore. BeBe Loudermilk, Weezie's best friend and the heroine from Savannah Breeze, also features prominently. A must-read for Andrews' many fans, and for anyone looking for a short, funny and heartwarming read.
