THE JUNKETEERS: A Tale of Press Trip Thrills & Nightmares
Kindle Direct Publishing, $2.99
New York, New York
THE JUNKETEERS is an insider's look at press trips, a fancier name for junkets--the highs, the lows, the adventures and naughtiness of journalists unleashed. Countess Jacqueline de Beaumont covers sex and wine for glossy magazines, lustily testing out the local flavor wherever she goes. New-to-the-circuit food and travel writer Marin Flynn is so enthralled by the countess she naively follows her incessant advice, which inevitably backfires. The two women join up with other colorful—and sometimes unbearable---junketeers on trips to Poland, Fiji, Scotland, Bali and Argentina. Their fractious and funny friendship is tested everywhere from a disastrous cuddle party in Manhattan to a storm-tossed lifeboat in Patagonia.
