Book ~ "Christmas Bliss" (2013) Mary Kay Andrews

From Goodreads ~ 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. 

Weezie is an antiques pickers.  She is engaged to Daniel, a chef, and they are getting married in a week.  He owns his own restaurant in Savannah and has seconded himself to chef at a high end restaurant in New York for a while (it's a great honour).  Meanwhile Weezie is at home preparing for the wedding ... getting her dress fitted, baking the wedding cake, arranging for friends to decorate, etc.  She getting a bit frazzled when she doesn't hear from Daniel because he's so busy so she heads to New York for a couple days to surprise him.

In the meantime, Weezie's best friend and maid of honour, Bebe is eight months pregnant and feels like an elephant.  Her boyfriend and father of her child, Harry, is a fisherman ... he wants to get married but she's been married three times already so refuses.  Then she discovers a shock regarding husband #2 and tries to rectify it without Harry finding out.

I've read a lot of books by this author.  This is the fourth (and last so far) in the Weezie and BeBe Mystery Series ... I've read the first three.  It was a light read (not much of a mystery) but I liked it.  It works well as a stand alone and you don't have to read the first ones to know what's going on.  I liked the writing style.  It is written in first person perspective alternating in Weezie's and Bebe's voices.
