When seventy-year-old Charlotte Perkins submits a sexy essay to the “Become a Jetsetter” contest, she dreams of
reuniting her estranged children: Lee, an almost-famous actress; Cord, a handsome Manhattan venture capitalist who
can’t seem to find a partner; and Regan, a harried mother who took it all wrong when Charlotte bought her a Weight
Watchers gift certificate for her birthday. Charlotte yearns for the years when her children were young, when she was a
single mother who meant everything to them.
When she wins the contest, the family packs their baggage—both literal and figurative—and spends ten days
traveling from sun-drenched Athens through glorious Rome to tapas-laden Barcelona on an over-the-top cruise ship,
the Splendido Marveloso. As lovers new and old join the adventure, long-buried secrets are revealed and old wounds are
reopened, forcing the Perkins family to confront the forces that drove them apart and the defining choices of their lives.
Can four lost adults find the peace they’ve been seeking by reconciling their childhood aches and coming back
together? In the vein of The Nest and The Vacationers, The Jetsetters is a delicious and intelligent novel about the courage
it takes to reveal our true selves, the pleasures and perils of family, and how we navigate the seas of adulthood.

As a new empty nester writing this new chapter of my life and watching my children navigate the twists and turns of adulthood, marriage and parenting has been interesting to say the least. This book hit the ball out of the park and confirmed that “I’m not nuts”. Loved it!

Really enjoyed this book. Loved the chapters being from the different characters perspectives. I also thought the narrator did a great job, especially with Charlotte.
