Summary

Southern belle BeBe Loudermilk has lost all her worldly possessions, thanks to a brief but disastrous relationship with the gorgeous Reddy, an "investment counselor" who turns out to be a con man. All that's left is a ramshackle 1950s motel on Tybee Island, an eccentric beach town that calls itself a drinking village with a fishing problem. Breeze Inn is a place where the very classy BeBe wouldn't normally be caught dead, but with no alternative, she moves into the manager's unit, vowing to make magic out of mud. The work is grueling, especially dealing with the bad-tempered caretaker, a fishing captain named Harry who's trying to earn enough dough to get his boat out of hock. With the help of Harry and her junking friend Weezie, BeBe soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests.
Then there's a sighting of Reddy in Fort Lauderdale, and BeBe decides to go after him. She puts together a posse, and with the irrepressible Granddaddy Loudermilk snoring in the backseat of the Buick, heads south. The plan is to carry out a sting that may be just a little bit outside the law but that, with any luck at all, will retrieve BeBe's fortune and put the dastardly Reddy in jail, where he belongs. And maybe Harry, who's looking more hunky every day, will finally get his boat back.

Dissapointing

This will be my last Mary Kay Andrews audible book, while the book itself is wonderful, and I highly recommend it, I found the audio book monotonous, and what is worse is that the narrator kept mispronouncing the main characters name as Beebee, not Bay-Bay as is stated in the book itself numerous times! Its small things like these that ruined the audio book for me.

Well worth it.....

This audio book was entertaining and enjoyable. The narrator is very good, she kept the characters separate and it was easy to distinguish between them, she spoke clearly. The story held my interest from beginning to end and it was a well structured story. This was a very adverturous story and I didn't want it to end. Well worth the one credit I used for it.
