In this highly anticipated sequel to I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT, Kate Reddy goes back to work. Companies aren’t necessarily keen on hiring 49-year-old mothers, so Kate knocks a few years off her age, hires a trainer, joins a Women Returners group, and prepares a new resume. When Kate manages to secure a job at the very hedge fund she founded, she must prove herself (again) at work while dealing with teen drama and trying to look after increasingly frail parents as she approaches her 50th birthday. Then, of course, an old flame shows up out of the blue, and Kate finds herself facing off with everyone from Russian mobsters to a literal stallion.
