(Sarah Jio New York Times bestselling author of The Violets of March)

Your Perfect Life is clever, quirky, fresh, and ultimately, empowering!” (Claire Cook bestselling author of Must Love Dogs and Time Flies)

“Liz and Lisa's voices are warm and comforting, like a relaxed chat with great friends while wearing cozy PJ's and sipping wine. I highly recommend Your Perfect Life!" (Beth Harbison New York Times bestselling author of When in Doubt, Add Butter)

I just raced through reading Your Perfect Life by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke - it was a fun summer read! Best friends Casey and Rachel end up switching bodies and lives after a high school reunion. Casey is single and a successful TV host while Rachel is a busy, tired stay-at-home mom. Their story may have been told before but I really enjoyed reading this book! If you are looking for a light beach read, I'd recommend this book and it could be a good book club book as there is a discussion guide in the back of the book.

This book was a great "Freaky-Friday" inspired novel, with the twist of two best friends switching places until they realize the value of their own lives. In "Your Perfect Life", Casey and Rachel each think the other has it made. A wily bartender gives them each a specially-concocted shot. Suddenly, famous entertainment journalist Casey wakes up as a mom of three children whose marriage is on the rocks. Rachel wakes up in the glamorous world of her best friend, the one she gave up to raise a family - and soon finds that it is not all it seems.

This is the kind of story where many threads could be forgotten, but the authors masterfully pulled everything together seamlessly. It was a great read, and I look forward to recommending it to others.

From the very first line, I couldn't put down "Your Perfect Life" - I read it from start to finish in one night! The characters come to life right away, and with every turn of the page, you start to ponder your own life and friendships. The book is funny, yet truly thought provoking: if you had a chance at a different life, would you want it? I love that it was written by two friends - you got to really feel the true ups and downs of friendship at all stages of life. Well done!

This book was a quick and entertaining read. The situations presented to two best friends who inadvertently end up living each other's lives are both comical and heartrending. The reader keeps cheering for these ladies in their quest for the fulfilling life we females wish we had. Even though the book is somewhat like a romantic comedy movie, it makes you look at your own life and examine what is important to you. So...it's not ALL fun and pleasure! Nice change of pace and fast. I sat down this morning and finished it this afternoon with several interruptions for my real life! Enjoy!

The only problem with Your Perfect Life is the effect it had on my parenting. I pretty much neglected my kids for an entire day because I couldn't stop reading it! Liza and Lisa really captured the ups and downs of a long term friendship, especially what happens when lives go in new directions. I laughed out loud enough times that my kids thought I was a little crazy (which I could be), and I sniffled through the last few chapters like a cry-baby (which I am). Once I was done all I wanted was to chat with my best friend, but since I'd stayed up late to finish I had to settle for an "I love you" text and response in the morning from her. But that's what friendship and this book is all about, making those life long relationships work no matter what.

What a lot of folks don't get is there are great many of us in the 60 and above age group who are really 35 in our hearts and souls. I still enjoy movies (Bridesmaids..Friends with Kids) TV shows (How I Met a Your Mother, Rules of Engagement) aimed at the younger generation. Even if you are 50+ on the outside but feel young at heart, this book will grab you from the first page and take you on a journey filled with laughter, tears and surprises....revealing many life lessons along the way.

The writing technique of having the chapters alternative between characters (chapter 1 - Casey, Chapter 2 - Rachel, Chapter 3 - Casey and so on) captivates and reels you in....you will not be able to put it down as you want to know what is going to happen next to these two best friends who thinks the other has "the perfect life"!

Exploring "is the grass greener" and "did I make the right choices in my life" is such a relevant topic for today's young women and even some of us "hmmm" older gals who from time to time look back and say "what if............?"

I recommend Your Perfect Life as a great vacation, curl up with a cup of tea in the afternoon, reading in bed at nite when the house is quiet, on the plane to your next business meeting or what ever your reading style is kind of book.

Enjoy!!

I really liked this book. The women are well drawn and I could relate to each of them for different reasons. I found the idea that you never know someones life until you walk in their shoes to be a god jumping off point for the story. We each think our life is so hard and the other persons life is so easy or so glamorous. The truth is we each have our own struggles. This story is funny, easy to read and engaging. I found that I didn't really want it to end.

A novel idea having two close friends, whose's lives have taken very different turns as adults, change identities for some time. You may think that this "change" would be confusing, but the author manages to make it easy for you to follow the storyline. I couldn't wait to find out how the two main characters learn to deal with the other one's situation. A great and fun read.
