It's the holiday season, and each of the roommates at 86 Bloomberg Place is a little blue . Megan's got the boss from hell, and now her mom is going on a cruise, leaving Megan alone for Christmas for the first time ever. Lelani can't afford to fly home to Hawaii and isn't sure she'd be welcomed anyway, not that she can admit that to anyone. Anna's old boyfriend—the one who cheated on her—has sailed back into her life, just when she's met a for-real "nice guy" she's been keeping secret from her large, crazy Latino family. And Kendall's met a famous actor, who might be the answer to her money woes—if she could only convince him she's the love of his life. His wife might have something to say about that, though. Thank goodness God's around to listen when the girls need help!

Let's face it, relationships are hard work—whether they're with family and friends, coworkers and customers, or boyfriends and girlfriends. And when you've got your first apartment, a real job, and grown-up responsibilities, too, relationships are loaded with confusion, emotion, and secrets you can't tell to anyone but God. Best-selling author Melody Carlson has captured all the uncertainty and joy of being twenty-something in pitch-perfect detail—and their stories just might sound like someone you know.

Although I liked re-visiting the girls at Bloomberg Place, I didn't find myself quite as drawn to them this time around. Although there were a couple of storylines that held my attention, for the most part, it felt a little overdone and padded out. There wasn't that same feeling of connection between the girls (until the final chapter) in Let Them Eat Fruitcake.

Strangely enough, the most annoying character's major storyline was the one that grabbed my interest the most. Although I wanted to shake sense into Kendall (a feeling probably echoed by most readers), her spin into personal disaster made for compelling reading and was not sugar-coated. Her ultimate calamity was fairly predictable (or maybe that's just me and my suspicious mind) and sets the stage for Book 3.

As for the other characters, nothing much happened (really) apart from relationship ups and downs. Leilani continued to battle with the dilemma of whether to return home to her baby and medical school, or to encourage the budding relationship with Gil and stay in a job she dislikes.

Anna's fiery temperament and family loyalty lead her to make poor decisions (and oh boy, that mother of hers!).

Megan continues to struggle with the loss of her father and the need to make good choices in keeping with her faith.

Although the first novel in this series touched on Christianity with a light hand, in Let Them Eat Fruitcake Melody Carlson opened the floodgate more than a few times. Based on the wording, I'm assuming she was trying to reach both a secular and Christian audience. In other words, she used a more generic "God" instead of the more appropriate Christ or Jesus in many instances. As a Christian, it didn't overly bother me (although I felt it was a little unsubtle); however, I can imagine a lot of secular readers being really annoyed (unless their hearts were already open).

Of all the characters, the three who continue to remain a little too perfect are the three boyfriends--Edwin, Gil and Marcus. Patient, gentle, long-suffering. They are all a little too good to be true.

I really would rate Let Them Eat Fruitcake at about 3.5 stars rather than 3. I didn't dislike it at all, but I just didn't feel gripped by it. Even the conflict between the girls was a bit tiresome. I was far more interested in the events that happened when they were away from Bloomberg Place.

Having said all that, I will still look forward to reading the next book in the series--just not straight away.

I'm guessing that someone in their 20s might enjoy this series, but I was left shaking my head about the girls' stupidity on more than one occasion. What is up with Anna and Jake - and after all the drama, one day she just realizes that it was silly and apologizes to her friends?! Kendall is downright ludicrous - I was hoping to see her grow up in this book, but obviously that didn't happen; was also expecting to see her eating disorder addressed (introduced in book 1), but there's no mention of it at all.

I did like the way they came together at the end, and have higher hopes for the next book.

Even though I thought it was predictable doesn't mean everyone will. That is just me. I enjoyed the book series very much. Just because I thought it was going to come out a certain way, did not mean it would, but I was happy it did. I recommend this to anyone who loves complicated relationships.

I felt that the writing was poor. I was really looking forward to reading this book, as I love the author's other series, but this left me disappointed.

Melody is a good author to read.

I read this book hoping for the best because of the great reviews on Amazon. However, I found the plot to be flimsy and the character development weak. This was supposed to be a mixture of chick-lit with side of good old-fashioned Christian values and I felt both of the areas fell short. Skip this book.

I love Melody Carlson books and have read many of them. Her books are always well written and there is always something I can relate to. This series is no exception.
This is book two in the series and is a fun, easy read. Good for everyone from early teen up.
