The Seasonaires by Janna King
I received a copy of The Seasonaires courtesy of Kathleen Carter Communications in exchange for my honest review.
For a twenty-something, 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. When life is this intoxicating and seemingly carefree, what could possibly go wrong?
Acclaimed screenwriting talent Janna King makes her fresh and thrilling debut with The Seasonaires. An idyllic Nantucket summer begins like a dream for scrappy Mia from South Boston; Presley, the gorgeous southern beauty queen; Cole, a handsome introvert; Jade, the sultry daughter of a model and music mogul; J.P., the energetic young designer; and Grant, the 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 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.
My Rating: 4/5
This book felt like a cross between a reality television drama and a mystery/thriller. Between the fraternizing with the “enemy”, the parties, selfies, alcohol and drugs, hookups, and a little competition, there was never a dull moment. The competitive environment leads to jealousy, backstabbing, and brand ambassador rivalries.
The book was primarily a drama with thrills and mystery towards the end and had me reading to find out the who, what and why. An entertaining beach read meets thriller.
