The Seasonaires

A Novel

Janna King

For a twenty-something, there is no summer job better than seasonaire. No responsibilities, school is months away, and you’re surrounded by chic, beautiful people. Intoxicating and seemingly carefree, what could possibly go wrong?

Inspired by this deceivingly heady atmosphere, acclaimed screenwriting talent makes her fresh and thrilling debut with The Seasonaires.  An idyllic Nantucket summer begins like a dream for Mia, a scrappy "Southie," Presley, the gorgeous southern beauty queen, Cole, a quiet newcomer with startling eyes, Jade, the exotic daughter of a model and music mogul, J.P., the energetic young designer, and Grant, the playful party-boy.  All six are working as seasonaires for the clothing brand Lyndon Wyld. But like all things that look too good to be true, the darkness lurking underneath slowly rises to the surface.   Lyndon Wyld, the chic British tigress who owns the eponymous business, rules their daily life by curating their every move, which the seasonaires are obligated to post on social media for their growing throngs of followers. When corporate greed, professional rivalries and personal conflicts are mixed with sex, drugs, and the naiveté of youth, the results are explosive as the murder that will sully their catalog-perfect lives.
