"Lewis writes engagingly and empathically, and the supporting cast of relatable characters will keep readers absorbed as Charlotte works toward a new kind of happiness."--Booklist
"This new novel asks tough questions about family and explores what happens when you try to re-connect with the ones you love most."--SheReads, "The best beach books of summer 2020"
"In Kristyn Kusek Lewis's Perfect Happiness, Charlotte McGanley has two sides: the happiness guru with the perfectly curated Instagram profile; and the struggling wife and mother, whose life is crumbling under the pressure. In this timely novel, Lewis deftly explores the price we pay when our outer self doesn't match our inner one. Insightful and relatable, this book proves our flaws don't need to define us, and that happiness is always within reach."--Karma Brown, bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife
"Kristyn Kusek Lewis nails this modern family story about a deeply unhappy happiness guru whose Instagram feed is at odds with her inner turmoil. I feel like I made an instant friend in the character of Charlotte McGanley and I cringed right alongside her with every failure, misstep and unnecessary glass of wine. The pressures and situations in PERFECT HAPPINESS are thoroughly of this time and place, but the pleasures and satisfaction of watching a family stumble and try to right themselves remain timeless."--Meg Mitchell Moore, author of The Islanders and Two Truths and a Lie
