Review: Blue Christmas

December 12, 2014

Blue Christmas

Weezie Foley is determined to win Savannah’s Historic District’s decorating contest but it seems like the guys across the street are too.  She buys a box of junk at an auction and finds an old, blue Christmas tree pin that inspires her creative juices.  It also inspires a thief but, somehow, Weezie knows her thief is not malicious.  She suspects a homeless woman and starts leaving gifts for her.

Weezie’s boyfriend, Daniel, is in quite a mood.  He’s busy with his restaurant, but that’s not the whole reason for his mood – he hates the holidays because his childhood Christmases weren’t too happy.  Weezie loves Christmas but knows to give him his space.  Their lives (and Daniel’s attitude) change when they make a startling discovery.

Blue Christmas, by Mary Kay Andrews, is light, breezy, and just a little bit predictable and it was exactly what I needed to read!  It’s a quick read full of great characters and a fun story that is sure to put a smile on your face and the Christmas spirit in your heart and I thought it was terrific.

Weezie and her best friend BeBe have lots of fans for good reason – they’re wonderful characters full of heart and charm.  Fans of the characters are sure to love this story that oozes with love, friendship, and Christmas spirit.  Weezie has a heart of gold and believes in the goodness of people.  Reading about her just might inspire readers to help others this holiday spirit.

Andrews has included recipes, fun holiday tips, and a holiday playlist in the back of this charming book.  I thoroughly enjoyed Blue Christmas and recommend it to anyone searching for the Christmas spirit.
