Your Perfect Life by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke @LizandLisa #WashingtonSquarePress Publication Day 6-10-14

Two childhood best friends wake up the morning after their twentieth high school reunion to discover that they’ve switched bodies in this hilarious and heartwarming debut by two childhood best friends. 

With “a delicious, page-turning premise, and sweet and surprising insights” ( New York Timesbestselling author Jen Lancaster), Your Perfect Lifeperfectly illustrates that old adage: Sometimes, you have to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes to see what’s in her heart. 

Best friends since childhood, Casey and Rachel couldn’t lead more different lives. While workaholic Casey rubs elbows with celebrities daily as the host of Gossip TV and comes home nightly to an empty apartment, stay-at-home mom Rachel juggles an “oops” baby, two fiery teenagers, and a husband who barely seems the man she fell in love with two decades before. After an argument at their twentieth high school reunion, Casey and Rachel throw back shots to get the night back on track. Instead, they get a life-changing hangover. 

Waking up in each other’s bodies the next morning, they must figure out how to navigate their altered realities. Rachel is forced to face the broadcasting dreams she gave up when she got pregnant in college, and Casey finally steps out of the spotlight to face the real reason why she’s alone. And they soon discover that they don’t know themselves—or their best friend—nearly as well as they thought they did. 

I received this giveaway from Lisa and Liz and devoured it in hours! If you’re looking for a lighthearted, fast paced, heartwarming story of two friends who learn a very important lesson about not getting what you want until you’re happy with what you have… this is the read for you!

Rachel and Casey have been friends forever but took very different paths in life and consequently grew apart. Until the HS reunion that is…

“Seventeen Again” meets “Freaky Friday”, Fenton and Steinke’s story “Your Perfect Life” was an adorable tale of two women with sooooo many lessons to learn! I LOVE the messages in the story. They are messages everyone can afford to acquire!

  1. Happiness is something you choose everyday!

  2. Happiness is about letting go what you THINK your life is supposed to be!

  3. The best qualities about friendship are the ability to understand each other and also to be understood!

  4. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side!

  5. Be happy with what you have in order to get what you want!

Finally… YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL ITS GONE!

I will remember the lessons learned by the friends in this story forever. Sometimes many important lessons can be learned in the format of a fictional whimsical tale. This is a story that will have you smiling long after you turn the last page!

We are HUGE fans of Lisa and Liz and will always welcome the opportunity to read and review their books! Thank you!!!
