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.
