Life changed for Charlie Blundell five years ago when her beautiful, teenage daughter, Amy, passed away. Tired of trying, her marriage ended soon after, and Charlie forced herself to get on with things. Now approaching her fortieth birthday, Charlie throws herself into her part-time jobs baking cakes for the The Art Cafe, and her radio slot at City Hospital Radio, and she finds that keeping busy helps to keep the sadness at bay. And with amazing friends in Mercedes, Ryan, Peggy, and the rest of the gang, she doesn't always feel lonely. But underneath it all, she knows that she is not really living, just merely existing. But it looks like her steady routine is about to change as there is talk of the radio station shutting down, and when someone starts taking an unusual interest in her, life is about to get complicated. Add in a drunken New Year's Eve idea that brings untold excitement and adventure into Charlie's life and who knows where it all will end! Will Charlie be up for the challenge? Will she be willing to take a chance on a whole new life?
