Book Review: The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward


After Charlotte Perkins loses her beloved best friend, Minnie, Charlotte becomes sad and lonely. At age 70, her family rarely has spent any time together in years. Charlotte enters a contest called “Becoming a Jetsetter.”

Charlotte is thrilled when she wins the contest to take her 3 children with her on a Mediterranean cruise. Cord is a handsome and wealthy venture capitalist whose family does not know about his new fiancé. Regan is a stressed out mother of two young girls trying to keep up with society, but she has many dark secrets within. Lee is a C list actress looking for her next big break in Hollywood.

These four adults head out on a cruise from Athens to Italy to Spain to try to find themselves and create some connections with each other in ten days.

My Thoughts:

I chose this book just because it was Reese’s March choice. I ended up falling in love with the flawed characters in the Perkins family. It reminded me a bit of Elin Hilderbrand’s characters, and how she is able to expose their weaknesses and flaws, but you still are able to fall in love with the good and bad. I cried and laughed while reading this book.

I highly recommend this book! As our country in basically quarantined, this would be a great book for anyone to read right now to read the descriptive details of Greece, Italy, and Spain. I fell in love with all the characters, and anyone can relate to the ups and downs of every family.
