A 2020 REESE WITHERSPOON HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK
When Charlotte Perkins enters the 'Become a Jetsetter' contest, she dreams of reuniting her estranged children: Lee, an almost-famous actress; Cord, a handsome Manhattan venture capitalist; and Regan, a harried mother who has never got over Charlotte's gift of a Weight Watchers voucher for her birthday.
But when she wins that once in a lifetime trip, all doesn't exactly go to plan...
As long-buried secrets are revealed, and lovers new and old appear, can these four lost adults find their way back to each other?
And more importantly, can they do it without killing each other?
A hilarious and deliciously sun-scented novel about the courage it takes to reveal our true selves and the pleasures and perils of family.

[Amanda] Ward reveals she has a way with humor. . . . The author s eye for forced fun is exquisite. . . . There is a real poignancy in this novel, as wounded characters struggle to regain childhood loyalties. Ward nails how family expeditions are ruined and saved, over and over again, by fleeting moments of connection and the consensus to survive without killing one another. Judy Blundell, The New York Times Book Review
Witty, insightful, and full of heart . . . Defined by a long-ago tragedy and long-held grudges, grievances, and resentments, the Perkins clan has plenty of reasons to keep secrets from one another secrets that inevitably, over the course of their forced family fun vacay, spill out. . . . The perfect novel to read in a pool lounger as you sip a colorful cocktail. Mediterranean sunset optional. Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train

Heartwarming, funny, and poignant, The Jetsetters kept me up late turning the pages. . . . Compulsively readable. Jean Kwok, New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Sylvie Lee
This book has you completely devoted to the family to their heartbreak, their secrets, their bravery, their joy by page two. Ward crystallizes the amorphous nature of relationships in a way that gets you laughing and then bawling, then laughing again, then bawling, and ultimately feeling deliriously alive. . . . Emotional, authentic, badass, brilliant. Jardine Libaire, author of White Fur and Here Kitty Kitty
Secrets can be sinister, or they can set you free. In Amanda Eyre Ward s playful, poignant The Jetsetters, one family s secrets take you on a romp through Europe, and deep into hearts groping their way back to love. I adored every moment of this delightful book. Meg Waite Clayton, internationally bestselling author of The Last Train to London
Each character s dysfunctions run deep, and each plot twist threatens to sink their sanity, resulting in a funny, moving tale of the complications of familial love. Booklist
Open, optimistic, caring, romantic, and thoughtful Giovanni Cord s fiancé is a highlight of the book. No one, and no relationship, is perfect in this story, which embraces the messiness of love and life. Kirkus Reviews
