A light-hearted look at friendships
In Keep Calm and Carry a Big Drink, Kim Gruenenfelder's
delicious follow-up to There's Cake in My Future, Seema, Nic
and Mel are back, adjusting to their new lives as a
bride-to-be, a mother-to-be, and a recently single girl
looking for love
It's been almost a year since Mel, Nic and Seema pulled
their magical charms out of the cake at Nic's bridal shower
and most of their happily-ever-afters seemingly came true.
Seema is about to marry Scott in an elaborate three-day
affair. Nic is glowingly pregnant. And Mel... well, Mel
feels as if she accidentally veered off the rails of her
life at some point and isn't sure how to get back on. She
recently became single again, she's been threatened with a
layoff from her teaching job, and she has to find her own
place now that Scott is moving in with her roommate, Seema.
Nic thinks Mel just needs a new cake charm to bring her good
luck. . . and decides to rig the cake pull at Seema's bridal
shower. Desperate for travel, Mel asks for the passport
charm. But, once again, the cake proves to have a mind of
its own, and she pulls a charm she doesn't want, and can not
use. Rather than be bound by the charm's prophecy, Mel
realizes she, and she alone, is responsible for her destiny.
A spur of the moment decision takes her to Paris and then
Maui, where she finds herself on an adventure that she never
could have imagined, experiencing the trials and
tribulations of a life suddenly and perfectly unplanned.
And, along the way, she begins to learn that, however
nonsensical it may seem, the cake is never wrong...
