Straight up This is a story about a dysfunctional aka mostly normal family and their life You see a glimpse of a childhood scene, and then the remainder of the books are the three children as adults and their aging mother as they go on a cruise together What I most appreciated about this story was that literally every one of them was fucked up in some way They felt like real people, rather than those characters you sometimes get in a novel, where it s fun to read but not super realistic This was realistic, with lots of character flaws and bad decisions and moments that leave you wondering why someone is doing the thing they re doing horror movie style, where you re screaming internally DO NOT DO THAT THING , and then they do it anyway.Pub date is early next year, so mark it on your to read list now I don t like it but I didn t hate it, too I m Switzerland right now It s okay reading but not the marvelous book I ve dreamt of so it means three let s have a vacation with one of the dysfunctional families stars Blurb seemed like interesting and I wished I could read some funny, entertaining dysfunctional, bat shit crazy family members stories But you cannot always get what you want Sigh Pour me wine husband And stop eating my veggie chips, I m on a diet, remember I m balancing my calories Smooth, soft, mediocre, entertaining, beach side reading for me even though Halloween, I still enjoy feeling the sea breeze on my face but it s not a book I compassionately flip the pages and so intrigued to learn facts about the characters I think the progression of the story telling and presences of unlikable characters didn t work with me I found it a little light for my expectations and twisted genre taste.Charlotte, widow, 70, great prize winner of Mediterranean Cruise, is gathering her family members to join her for the vacation Eldest daughter Lee has problems to find a proper acting job When her carrier floats away, she needs to face the secret she kept about their late father Middle sibling, Cord, keeping his sexuality as secret and youngest child, Regan, is my most not quite favorite character has a problematic marriage Her husband confesses once upon a time he fell in love with her sister, Lee.There are too many dramas, arguments, emotional breakdowns bla bla bla Final the family members facing their secrets and resentments and we got our unexpected but quiet enjoyable ending Actually ending was the best part of the book I didn t like those family members and I didn t stand their dramas and their over exaggerated problems I didn t find the story as a sincere, poignant, emotional family drama but also I didn t find this as a chic lit kind of entertaining, smart reading But at least I didn t get bored and the idea of Mediterranean Cruise travels around the marvelous cities of the world is a refreshing plot Like last remains of sunshine at the dark and rainy day Thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group to share this ARC COPY with me in exchange my honest review. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an honest review This was a hilarious book about family dynamics with a depth that surprised me I was expecting a light vacation read and got than I bargained for The Jetsetters features a Grandmother who wins a cruise and invites her dysfunctional family along in an effort to unite them Her three children each harbor a secret that will be uncovered over the course of the book The family bickering felt real and scenery along their cruise in the med will make you envious Some characters were definitely likable than others loved Cord s fiance However, all of the characters felt real with their issues and flaws The resolution wasn t as satisfying as I would have liked Overall, this is a 3.5 star read for me Thanks to Goodreads and Ballantine books for this ARC.Another dysfunctional family book which I love to read The Perkins family, Charlotte, a widow of 70 but to me seems older in the book like she was elderly when I see 70 as not writes an essay to win a cruise and her family joins her, all with their own problems Lee, the eldest, can t seem to find an acting job and is holding a secret from her siblings about their late father Cord, the middle child, needs to tell his mother that he is gay Then there s the baby of the family, Regan, who has an unhappy marriage with Jason who surprisingly shows up who was once in love with Lee It seems that when they were cruising, instead of bringing them together, they were still apart than together Unfortunately, I couldn t find one happy part in this book but it was still a good read.
