In a predictable story of BeBe Loudermilk's efforts to recover her personal fortune from a con man, Mary Kay Andrews offers up some entertaining mind candy. Savannah businesswoman and Southern belle BeBe moves into a decrepit motel, which she inadvertently comes to own, and works with the current manager and a cast of other lovable but forgettable characters to turn her life around. Isabel Keating reads the story with aplomb, adjusting her voice appropriately for each character. The result is perfect, with the humorous dialogue remaining lively, dynamic, and enjoyable. While the story itself is amusing enough, Keating's interpretation makes it much more fun. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
