Christmas Bliss by Mary Kay Andrews---a Review

Good Morning my Peeps!   on this the second day of Christmas, my review is Mary Kay Andrews Christmas Bliss!

First of all, just what is bliss?   By definition, bliss is supreme happiness, or utter joy or contentment.   The title of this book is certainly applicable.

Let's see the Synopsis from Goodreads:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Summer Rental comes a novella that celebrates love, the holidays, and antiques. Christmas is coming, but Savannah antique dealer Weezie Foley is doubly distracted both by her upcoming wedding to her longtime love, chef Daniel Stipanek and also by the fact that her best friend and maid-of-honor BeBe Loudermilk is due to give birth any day and is still adamantly refusing to marry her live-in-love Harry. Listeners have come to love these characters in Mary Kay Andrews' three previous Savannah novels: Savannah Blues, Savannah Breeze, and Blue Christmas. Christmas Bliss offers Andrews' legions of fans the best of many things: familiar characters, a new novella for Christmas, and a celebration of Mary Key Andrews' own favorite pastime-antiquing. Blue Christmas was a fan favorite, and now Christmas Bliss is sure to fly off store shelves and into the hands of Andrews fans in bestselling numbers.

From My Perspective:

I love Christmas and I love Christmas stories that put me in the mood in no uncertain terms.   Andrews Christmas Bliss sure fit the bill.   It is a lovely romance story centered around best friends Eloise Foley, aka  Weezie, and BeBe Loudermilk.    Bebe has been married three times and refuses to marry a fourth time.   She is about to give birth on or before the fifteenth of January.   Weezie is getting married over the Christmas holiday for the second time.

Now this little Christmas romance was written in a free flowing method which means to me, it was easy to read and easy to follow.  BeBe was presented with a problem as hubby # 2, never filed for a divorce which made her a bigamist and under Georgia law, well let's just say a big problem now loomed ahead for BeBe and baby.   The characters were realistic and I could easily picture these women bantering the way they did.   Weezie's problems were based on a couple who didn't know the definition of easy and simple, so the wedding was way more overstated than it needed to be and her mother drove her nuts.   Now I can't relate to that.    My mom is my best friend and she probably is the one driven nuts by me.   However, my best friends mom can indeed drive her nuts...no names, you know who you are.

I rated this lovely story a 4 wink read and enjoyed it very much!

Happy Christmas Peeps!   I'll be back tomorrow with another Christmas review!
