“[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
“What a joy! Treat yourself to The Jetsetters and let Amanda Eyre Ward’s wit, poignancy, and insight take you away. You deserve it. . . . The funniest novel that ever broke your heart.”—Andrew Sean Greer, New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Less
“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

The editor failed this author.
The other annoying thing the author did at the beginning of the book was name-drop high dollar brands. Over & over. There are better ways to describe the wealth of people.
These things are perhaps more noticeable on the audible addition. Hearing the same word ad nauseum is like nails on a chalkboard.
TW: Suicide. Alcoholism. Miscarriage.

Just boring chick lit. Very disappointed.
Die Charaktere sind finde ich eher 'flach' - alle haben Probleme und können schlecht damit umgehen - aber diese eher anstrengende Art der Autorin auf die Probleme einzugehen ist eher schwierig...
Mir hat aber auch die Story an sich nicht gefallen...
Wer kann denn an so wunderschöne Orte der Welt reisen... Und was macht man dort? Trinken und am Strand baden? Da wird kein Klischee ausgelassen.
Da hätte ich mal lieber zu einem anderen Buch greifen sollen. Das war 'verschwendete' Zeit. Schade.
