With “a delicious, page-turning premise, and sweet and surprising insights” (New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster), Your Perfect Life perfectly illustrates that old adage: Sometimes, you to 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 confront the reason she gave up her broadcasting dreams when she got pregnant in college, and Casey finally steps out of the spotlight to face the truth about 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.

Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke bring humor and heart to every page of this novel that is sure to please fans of In Her Shoes and The Opposite of Me. Your Perfect Life is a story about two very different women, what they didn’t know about each other, and how, by switching lives, they each learn to appreciate their own.

I have so much love for this book!  It definitely speaks to how much you know about your best friends, and the importance of friendship.

I love everything about Casey and Rachel.  Casey is the host of a popular celebrity gossip tv show, and Rachel is a stay at home mom of 3 kids.  Everyone thinks Casey has the perfect life.  She gets to meet celebrities, wealthy, and beautiful.  What they don’t realize is she has doubts about herself as she gets older.  In Hollywood it’s hard to stay on top when there are younger girls that can push their way in.  Rachel is a great mom, although I think she was entirely too strict.  She loves her family, but feels like there is something missing.

I loved how this was pretty much a grown up version of Freaky Friday.  The emotions and journeys are something I could definitely relate to.  Both Rachel and Casey also learn so much more about the others. Everything isn’t as easy as the other makes it seem, and there are repercussions to every decision they make.

The journey through Your Perfect Life will have you tearing up, laughing, and being grateful for the best friend in your life.
