For a twentysomething, there is no summer job better than being a seasonaire. No responsibilities, college is barely a thought, and you’re surrounded by glamorous, beautiful people. Intoxicating and seemingly carefree, what could possibly go wrong? An idyllic Nantucket summer begins like a dream for scrappy Mia from South Boston; Presley, a gorgeous Southern beauty queen; Cole, a handsome introvert; Jade, the sultry daughter of a model and music mogul; J. P., an energetic young designer; and Grant, a playful party-boy. These six are working as seasonaires―influential brand ambassadors―for the clothing line 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 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. Corporate greed, professional rivalries, and personal conflicts mix with sex, drugs, and the naiveté of youth, exploding in a murder that sullies their catalog-perfect lives. The Seasonaires is a fresh and stylish debut that perfectly captures today’s zeitgeist, promising to thrill until the very last page.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The perfect mix of drama and intrigue is a must-listen for the summer…Narrator Brittany Pressley seamlessly transitions between the six diverse seasonaires and a host of supporting characters as they continuously document their work and their personal lives on social media. As corporate rivalries, jealousy, drugs, and secret relationships simmer just below the surface, an act of violence occurs, and the seasonaires must decide who they are, whom they should trust, and who they ultimately want to be.” AudioFile
“If Instagram influencers are your poison, The Seasonaires is your slushie of arsenic frosé.” New York Times
“What if you could get paid to jet around the world all summer, play polo, and throw parties on the beach. What mischief did she get up to? Just you wait and see.” Glamour
“[An] outstanding sexy and splashy debut full of secrets, greed, guilt, and lust. The characters come alive on the pages, with each one taking on his or her own air of mystery and intrigue. Readers won’t know whom or what to believe as the intense pace, coupled with interwoven story lines and alibis, gets more muddled until the jaw-dropping climax.” Booklist (starred review)
“The seasonaires’ scandalous shenanigans have a tabloid appeal, and King slips in some commentary on consumer culture and those who live their lives on social media. The introspective Mia provides a good foil for the rowdier seasonaires, and while the identity of the killer may not come as a surprise, readers will be having too much fun to mind.” Publishers Weekly
The Seasonaires is no mere beach read. You’ll be rubbing sand out of your eyes long after you reach the valedictory hashtag.” Charles Blackstone, author of Vintage Attraction
