Your Perfect Life by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke

5 Star

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.

As one of the most anticipated releases of this year, I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this Your Perfect Life, and I was not disappointed. In the genre of Sarah Pekkanen or Emily Giffin, these ladies wrote a great book that will entertain you and make you think about things you might not have previously.

I liked the idea a lot about switching lives with someone else, though the way that it came about was a bit strange though I can't think of how else it might have happened! We all have things we don't like about our lives and things we envy in others, so this was a very interesting look at what might happen if we were given the chance to be someone else.

I am a fan of the TV show Drop Dead Diva, so this sort of concept is not entirely foreign to me and I couldn't help but wonder exactly just how difficult it would be to keep up the charade of being someone else. You might know someone very well but to actually act like them? That is whole other story!

Your Perfect Life was one that was almost impossible to put down. It was so enjoyable that it almost read itself. It had every element that makes for a great read - friendship, love, and conflict because yes there is definitely that element and it was interesting to see how things panned out between the two friends in this oh so unusual situation.

For anyone who loves chick lit but who also likes a bit of a twist in a tale, this is definitely a great read that you will not be disappointed in!
