    In the Hamptons, the everyday people are as complicated and fascinating as the millionaires...

    When Katie Doyle moves across the country to the Hamptons, she is hoping for summer employment, new friends for her young son, and a chance to explore a new love affair with a dazzling investor. What she finds is a strange cocktail of classes, where society's 1 percenters vacation alongside local hardworking people who've lived in the Hamptons for generations. Though she's looking forward to their move, Katie is wary about mingling with her boyfriend's East Coast elite circles. She soon discovers Southampton isn't all that it seems to be on the surface - and neither are the people who live there.

    As George takes Katie on a whirlwind tour of country clubs, haute couture, and lavish events, she is amazed to witness sudden whims become dire needs, extramarital affairs blossoming right and left, and people purchasing friends and loyalties like pairs of shoes. Even the middle-class townspeople maintain a determined façade while maneuvering like sharks among the wealthy summer invaders.

    The more Katie becomes immersed, the more she learns the secrets of both the upstairs and downstairs, the upper crust and middle of the road. The combustion between the classes becomes explosive as the summer tears on. Betrayals, a sexual predator, and a missing person lost in murky waves drive the listener on a racing Learjet ride through impossible twists and turns until landing at the shocking conclusion. When she meets Luke, a local surfer and middle school teacher, he makes her question what it is she really wants as she understands the life she's begun for herself is built on shifting Hamptons' dunes.
