The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand ~ Publication Day June 19, 2018~ @littlebrown @elinhilderbrand
It’s Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer-the sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at Madaket Beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom’s wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate.
But it’s going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony-and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash interviews the bride, the groom, the groom’s famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield-and no couple is perfect. Featuring beloved characters from The Castaways, Beautiful Day, and A Summer Affair, The Perfect Couple proves once again that Elin Hilderbrand is the queen of the summer beach read.
I dove into this book with great gusto! I had to start over though with notepad and pencil in hand in order to get the cast of characters down pat! It was worth slowing down for because this 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ book will leave you perched at the edge of your seat until the very last page!
“The Perfect Couple” had just the right mixture of suspenseful murder mystery & soap opera love story drama and just the perfect sprinkle of “holy shit I didn’t expect that”… every character I grew to love and hate! Every character was a suspect and a victim! It was a work of pure genius woven together by a killer plot! See below picture for my note taking graffiti that served to jump start my love for this plot!
This was one of those books that kept staring at me from my bookshelf but just never got around to reading. It’s one of those books that after you read it you say “what the hell was I waiting for…”! If you like Jessica Strawser & Liane Moriarty, you will love Elin Hilderbrand.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book! I am definitely a new fan of Elin Hilderbrand!
Elin Hilderbrand first discovered the magic of Nantucket in July 1993. Her recipe for a happy island life includes running, writing at the beach, picnics at Eel Point with her three children, and singing “Home, Sweet Home” at the Club Car piano bar. Here’s to Us is her seventeenth novel.
I just finished this Friday, and enjoyed most of it. I found the emding somewhat disappointing. Her latest book, Winter in Paradise, is part one of a trilogy. It’s well written and intriguing!
