"You will find yourself laughing throughout the entire book, and cheering on Peri and Milo as they move tentatively through the early stages of their relationship. There will be times when you will have tears in your eyes, and more than once there will be a swoon. There's a new book boyfriend in town, and his name is Milo."

I started “Peri in Progress” in late 2015, and while this book is a quick-moving one, the times in my busy schedule I found time to pick it up–even for just a chapter or two–it was very enjoyable! Thankfully, I finished it, making it my first completed read this year, (“Peri in Progress” will definitely be on my favorite reads of 2016!).
Right away, I fell in love with Peri! She knows she’s got issues–her childhood is falling apart, she’s a little overweight, and her relationship isn’t what she’d like it to be–but I admired her for wanting to change the negative things in her life. Having a her friend by her side to help make these changes–one who was only there to help, not sabotage–was a major plus, and I loved how they interacted. As for her job, being asked to take some time off my well-paying job to work at a restaurant that is struggling, I wouldn’t do it, being tempted to stay home in bed the entire time, but Peri accepted the challenge. It was rewarding to see how Peri overcame learning something that was not ordinary to her–including being around a handsome man like Milo, who introduces her to running.
Near the end, I was holding my breath (sorry, no spoilers), but I was cheering for Peri all the way, and loved how it ended.
As one who’s read all of Cat’s books, her writing gets better and better, making me more of a fan of hers, each book she releases. If you’re wanting a quick, fun, delightful read, I recommend this brilliantly-written page-turner!
Author Cat Lavoie has done it again and when I say "it" I mean she wrote a heartfelt, humorous, and difficult to put down chick lit novel. Like Roxy and Zoey before her, main character Peri is a protagonist ripe for character development and develop she does - from her taste in food (and men), finding her passion in career (and men), and learning to stand up for herself. The road was not without bumps, but I love a book packed with conflict. Another thing in common with all of the author's books is a moment when the main character humiliates herself to the point where, as the reader, my stomach aches in sympathy and my heart pounds wondering how she will pick herself up again. her characters feel real - like girls I would be friends with - and as my friends, I root for them to find their happily ever after. I truly loved this book and the author is on my "auto-read" list.
Cat Lavoie had my attention from the very first page. Again! I have read all her books and I can definitively tell you that each one was an absolute pleasure to read. In Ms. Lavoie's latest novel, we meet Peri on what should be a happy occasion -- her birthday. However, the night takes her to the darkest of places since her life is nowhere near where she would like it to be. In the cold light of day, she takes a look at her crumbling house, uncertain career, addiction to junk food and penchant for choosing the wrong men and decides to make some much-needed changes. Her journey of self-improvement takes her to some truly hilarious, heart-warming and downright steamy places, which Ms. Lavoie handles with great skill. I was so enthralled with Peri's adventures that I read this book in one day -- I literally couldn't put it down.
This is the third book I have read from this author and quite possibly my favorite. Peri is indeed a work in progress: she is also memorable, quirky, fun and totally authentic. The writing was tight and the storyline kept me completely engaged. I thoroughly recommend Peri in Progress!!
Cat Lavoie has become that author that I always automatically buy her book upon release, because I know it's going to be great. Peri in Progress delivered! It was warm, fun, engaging and the cast of characters were charming and you can't help but root for all of them. I had a serious book crush with the hero of the book, Milo, and I enjoyed watching the romance between he and Peri bloom. I thought Cat did a great job of highlighting the not so great truths about restaurant life, but also some of the reasons why so many people end up loving hospitality. Overall, another win by Cat Lavoie! Looking forward to the next read!
It's only January, but I'm predicting that 'Peri in Progress' is going to be one of my favorite books of the year. Author Cat Lavoie rather masterfully combined my three favorite genres (women's fiction, chick lit, and romance) into one story. The supporting cast of characters was charming, it was easy to like Peri and want to cheer her on, and the ending came just too darn soon. This is an all-around lovely book.
Another lovely offering of light-hearted escapism from Ms. Lavoie.
Peri attracts our immediate, heartfelt sympathy for her initial work humiliation, and her subsequent journey is a pleasure to follow. The walk-on part for Zoe from Lavoie's second novel added a nice touch. And I did enjoy the theme of life being a work in progress, instead of something we conquer outright.
Looking forward to the next book from this author.
