Keep Calm and Carry a Big Drink- Kim Gruenenfelder

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads Giveaway. I really liked this book!! I started it and couldn't put it down. The characters were funny and I enjoyed the writing. Mel is trying to figure out why she isn't happy. It starts off with her at her best friends wedding. It then goes back in time to talk about events leading up to the wedding. Her other best friend is already married and 8 months pregnant. She is feeling a little depressed and jealous that her life is no where close to being married and pregnant like her best friends. She starts a fling with her friends brother. It takes her to Paris and she does some traveling before ending up in Maui. She is visiting her best friend from college, who she dated, but is now gay. She then starts to find she is happy and falling in love with her vacation life in Maui. Not only that, she's finding out things about herself and taking charge of her life. It's a story about a girl finding herself and not doing things to please others but herself. I found myself laughing out loud at points. I really enjoyed this read and I'm glad that I won it from a Goodreads Giveaway!
