Book Review: Blue Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews


Weezie Foley is determined to win the Christmas shop decorating contest this year, but her competition is fierce. At the same time, she's dealing with a boyfriend who hates Christmas, a dog that runs away and is returned mysteriously, and all kinds of crazy family problems. Will she make it through the week leading up to Christmas without falling apart?

I picked up Blue Christmas at the library from the holiday reading shelf. I didn't realize at the time that it features characters that were developed in two previous books - Savannah Blues and Savannah Breeze. This took a bit away from the story for me, because I could tell there were a lot of references to the past that must have been covered in those previous books. But it still had a standalone storyline that made sense without the background the other books.

I felt like the story was very predictable and a little hokey. It's really more of a chicklit book - certainly not a heavy, meaningful book about the meaning of Christmas. But it was a very quick read, and since I haven't read something like this in a while, it was a nice change of pace.

My Rating: 3/5

Comments

  1. I'm a sucker for an occasional chick lit book, even when they're predictable. I'll keep an eye out for that.

  2. I really enjoyed this but I read the first book. She really delved into Daniel's story in Blue Christmas, which I liked.
