Reviewed for Readers Favorite by Elizabeth Butts Peri is in a mid-twenties crisis. The guy she thought was a maybe for real boyfriend turned out to be a secret office supply closet fling, with no intention of being anything more. The job she used to like now sucks big time because she is now the person directly responsible for monitoring her co-workers' work and letting the higher-ups know when someone is falling behind. Oh, and then there is the childhood home she bought out of feelings of nostalgia, only to find out it is close to falling down around her. She decided, with her best friend Elsa's help, that it was time to make a change. It was time to become New Peri. New Peri wouldn't eat potato chips for breakfast. She would put herself first in a relationship. She would not let the childhood home collapse. The second item on that list didn't go so well, and she finds herself in a sort of business version of the 'time out.' She meets her bestie's prodigal brother, Milo, at the grand re-opening of the local restaurant where he is the new head chef. Enter the sparks that proverbially fly. But he is off limits, he would be the epitome of going from the frying pan into the fire. And that small nuisance of being her BFF's brother (who said BFF loathed)? A minor point. Cat Lavoie created a fun story in Peri in Progress that had me laughing when I snuck in book time during my lunch break. I thoroughly enjoyed every second I read Peri in Progress, and highly recommend it. It is a special author who can take her readers on a crazy roller coaster of emotions with her writing, and Cat nailed it. 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.

If you are looking to read a thoroughly enjoyable chick lit tale on a cold winter's day, then look no further, Peri In Progress by author Cat Lavoie is the book for you! When Peri McKenna turns thirty-one, she realizes that it is time to take control and make some changes in her life, a time for a new and improved Peri! Seriously, who hasn't wanted a do over at some point in their life! So Peri makes a list of changes she wants to make: eat healthier and cut out junk food, get more exercise, make repairs to her crumbling home, and have a mature romantic relationship. But with changes comes obstacles and stumbles along the way: her clandestine relationship with co-worker Declan Perry causes problems at work, she still craves junk food, and oh yeah ... she develops a crush on her best friend Elsa's older brother, chef Milo Preston. So what's a girl to do when she is a work in progress? Oh my goodness! Author Cat Lavoie sure does know how to weave a delightful chick lit tale that easily keeps the reader engaged and in stitches. Set in Messina, Connecticut and told in the first person narrative, Peri McKenna takes the reader along for the ride as she embarks on a journey of personal self-transformation. There is something about Peri that is so relatable, she is sassy and determined to make the necessary life changes, you can't help but cheer her on. This is a lighthearted fun story that has a nice amount of wit and humor while describing Peri's personal journey, her awesome relationship with best friend Elsa, and an unexpected but complicated romance that will put a smile on the reader's face. Peri In Progress is a poignant and entertaining story, it is a wonderful example of a chick lit tale at its very best!

Boy this story was filled with ups and downs! One minute I was filled with joy and the next I was in shock and a little sad to say the least. Peri McKenna has not had the greatest of life experiences as of lately and she is starting to think she really needs to re-evaluate her life and what is important her. Peri is secretly seeing this boy names Declan (let me just say that nothing good comes from seeing someone in secret!) and he basically denied being involved when she decided it was time to bring it out in the open..She is in shock....and to make matters worse she was suspended from her job! This is it she decides, the sign she needs to know she needs to take her life in a new direction...a new Peri! Junk food...a thing of the past (maybe), a new job to keep her mind off her old life and dare I say a new man? Not sure that is a great NEW plan, but hay what does she have to lose? Let me just say Milo is amazing, to die for really, but is he too good to be true? I will not give away any of the sexy details, you must read and find out for yourselves! Be prepared the scream at your book when things don't go the way you hoped they would!
