This embodies the heart of our new Jetset Times Book Club. As a brand, we are constantly on the lookout for fascinating cultural experiences. We want travel to be something that teaches us new ways to love, enjoy, and give. With this book club, we want the books we choose to do the same. We want to share books that express different cultures, and allow us to learn about these people through the written word. The more we learn about cities, the more places we will want to go, and experience what each place has to offer. If you’re inspired by travel, and love to read, then this is the book club for you.
Our first JST Book Club pick is She Regrets Nothing by Andrea Dunlop. This coming of age thriller is set in the glittering, upscale world of one of Manhattan’s wealthiest families.
“When Laila Lawrence becomes an orphan at twenty-three, the sudden loss unexpectedly introduces her to three glamorous cousins from New York who show up unannounced at her mother’s funeral. The three siblings are scions of the wealthy family from which Laila’s father had been estranged long before his own untimely demise ten years before.
Two years later, Laila has left behind her quiet life in Grosse Point, Michigan to move to New York City, landing her smack in the middle of her cousins’ decadent world. As the truth about why Laila’s parents became estranged from the family patriarch becomes clear, Laila grows ever more resolved to claim what’s rightfully hers. Caught between longing for the love of her family and her relentless pursuit of the lifestyle she feels she was unfairly denied, Laila finds herself reawakening a long dead family scandal—not to mention setting off several new ones—as she becomes further enmeshed in the lives and love affairs of her cousins. But will Laila ever, truly, belong in their world?”
If you’re a fan of Gossip Girl or have ever wished you could go to one of Gatsby’s extravagant parties, you’ll get hooked on this book.
