"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."

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!!
This was an enjoyable read filled with plenty of Laugh - Out - Loud moments, with real to life loveable characters & A fast paced storyline that any Chic - lit or Contemp . Romance reader will find Enchanting from beginning to end
I became an instant fan of Cat Lavoie’s when I read her first book, Breaking the Rules, and am like a kid on Christmas morning whenever she has a new release. Peri in Progress is the best gift the author could have given her readers! Funny, poignant, and swooningly romantic, I enjoyed every word and was sorry when the book was over. Sequel please!
Peri McKenna is a very relatable heroine in that she’s far from perfect and is in dire need of a life makeover when the story opens. We’ve all been there, right? Knowing we need to make a change (changes plural in Peri’s case as pretty much every area of her life is a disaster), but unsure of how to go about it or even where to start. When she’s disappointed by her birthday, her pseudo boyfriend, and her job, Peri decides to stop talking about improving herself and just do it! Soon, she’s breaking bad habits, trying new things, and expanding her horizons both professionally and personally.
I don’t want to give away too much about Peri’s journey, but I will say that it was very entertaining, as well as inspiring. I was really rooting for Peri to find the happiness and confidence she was missing and felt proud of her every time she made a step toward achieving one of her goals. An unexpected help to Peri on her road to self-improvement is the <Book Boyfriend Alert!> very dreamy Milo Preston, a talented chef who gives her a career opportunity and steers her toward a healthier lifestyle. I loved how this relationship blossomed in a very organic and believable way. It’s not smooth sailing for them, of course, as Milo is Peri’s best friend’s brother (and Elsa has some serious unresolved issues with him) and the handsome chef is suspiciously cagey about his past. <cue ominous music>
As always, Cat Lavoie is a master at weaving together all the different elements in her books and creating characters whose story arcs are dynamic, compelling, and quite often surprising. Grab a copy of Peri in Progress and dive in; you’ll be glad you did!
I received a copy of Peri in Progress in exchange for an honest review.
We meet Peri McKenna on her thirty first birthday, and though she survived turning thirty, is barely surviving turning thirty-one. As a result of a rather underwhelming year in her life, Peri decides it is time for epic changes. EPIC. As she sets the changes in motion she soon discovers the fall-out of some of her decisions. With no choice but to proceed, Peri continues to sweep the cobwebs out of her life, and for that I truly loved her. She doesn't question her decision to make major, she works her way through her pain and her enormous list.
Just past halfway I thought, "All the pieces are in place... something's gonna happen." And that something is spectacular. Ms. Lavoie delivers an absolutely charming book that one can completely disappear into. It's the kind of book you keep on your shelf, so that you can pull it out and read it over and over. A definite must read.
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.
PERI IN PROGRESS is a lovely story. It was fun, fast-paced, and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. As a woman approaching 30, I found Peri totally relatable, but I would have even if I was a kid or older. We're all works in progress, right?
This story is clever and witty. It had me laughing out loud, cringing, and even getting the tension in my chest thingy while I wondered how these two crazy kids were going to work it out.
