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.

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!

I give “Peri in Progress” 5 stars!

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.

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 a fun, fast read by Ms. Lavoie.

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.
