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.
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.
