    I hate to play favorites, but in this case, I don't feel like I have a choice. In my humble opinion, this is Elin Hilderbrand's best work yet. Combining her signature backdrop, riveting cast of characters and penchant for teasing the craveable local fare with the suspense of a murder...

    4 perfect beach read stars to The Perfect Couple! ? ? ? ? I discovered Elin Hilderbrand a couple years ago, well after she was proclaimed the queen of beach reads. While her books may be ?beachy? (i.e., set on Nantucket), they are well-written and full of depth. The...

    There were so many things that I enjoyed listening to this one (Audible). The setting was just dreamy-beach side in Nantucket with the sunny atmosphere. The characters were fun and relatable with some side notes of a little bit soap-opera inspired (which works in this story). I l...

    I didn?t like this book I adored it. Whilst reading this amazing story was all I could think about, every time I HAD to put this book down, I likened it to having to put a film on hold and all the characters were paused, eager for my return so they could continue their story!! The...

    I've read very little from Elin Hilderbrand, but the ratings have been so high with this 2018 release that I just couldn't resist. I have to agree with the masses. The Perfect Couple was a great read. It is an exploration of families and relationships with a death investigation as the ...

    Fantastic story! It captivated me from page 1 followed by SO SO many secrets and SO SO many twists. I didn't know which character to suspect. Her characters were complicated and imperfect (despite their wealth). They were also brought to life and made you care about them (well some of ...

    Compelling, mysterious, and deliciously entertaining! The Perfect Couple takes us to the beautiful island of Nantucket and into the lives of the rich and famous Winburys as they gather to celebrate a family wedding. But like most families with privilege, power, and money everything ...

    I?ve said it before and I?m sure I?ll repeat myself every single summer, but summer doesn?t officially start for me until I?ve read the latest Elin Hilderbrand novel. While I have several authors on my summer must read list every year, hers are the books I look forward to the...

    Whew! This was one twisty, turvy murder mystery/beach read where I swear I did not have the slightest idea whodunit until we got to the last page. Bravo, Elin Hildebrand! The theme here is relationships and secrets, and boy do these relationships have a ton! It was like every soap oper...

    There were so many things I disliked about this book. I've never read anything else by this author but she doesn't seem to be a mystery writer. The police procedure seemed extremely shaky. The cops spend one entire day "investigating" before giving up. This was women's fiction. Is the ...

    Book club read #18. 10/20/2018. Finished 9/20... No way am I going to remember all these people 4 weeks from now when we meet to discuss. But had to take the book once the library had it available. Big hold list, very popular book. Popular author too but this is her first that I've ...

    Oh wow, I really loved this book! I have a few more books by this author listed on my TBR, including a signed copy of "Beautiful Day", so I will have to move them up the queue. I loved the setting and the writing style, as well as some of the twists and turns. Great story, definitely r...

    The last time a wedding had this kind of effect on me, was with Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg. ( my review just in case you're interested: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) It was just a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and, well, you know the drill, a fe...

    So, I liked it, but I was expecting more from the conclusion. It took me until about the halfway point before I really started to get into it, and then I was dying to finish it, just to be a little bit disappointed at the end. It felt pretty anticlimactic. I have never been a big f...

    The best book of the summer! Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable...

    Reread upgrade to 4 STARS I must have been in a bad mood when I first read THE PERFECT COUPLE. My reaction to the book and review bothered me, because I **should** have loved it. I?m keeping both reviews, though upping to 4 stars. I enjoyed THE PERFECT COUPLE much more the seco...

    The Perfect Couple was engagingly, delicious from the very beginning. Elin Hilderbrand grabs your attention and doesn?t let go. This was my first Elin Hilderbrand read but will not be my last. This book was bursting with mysterious twists and turns together with engaging and inte...

    3.5 This is not usually my preferred genre- although I find myself reading/ listening to a lot of it lately.This was "fast-paced and entertaining." Jennifer and Melissa wrote wonderful reviews for this title. PS Quotes = lifted verbatim from Jennifer's review. : )) ...

    I surprised myself how much I enjoyed this book. I was staying away from Hilderbrand thinking her books were female fiction, full of romance, which is rarely my thing. And so I was very hesitant to pick this up. However, after reading some great reviews from my GR friends I decided to ...

    The Perfect Couple is a light, fun and entertaining beach read. While it is billed as a murder mystery, I found it light on the mystery element but after all, it is intended as a book for the beach! The couple that appears to be perfect, Celeste and Benji, are about to be married at hi...

    Wow! What a great whodunit filled with secrets and mystery! The Perfect Couple is the story of a ritzy wedding on Nantucket where the maid of honor is found dead the day of the wedding. As I learned more about each character and their possible motives, my mind raced through several dif...

    The last time a wedding had this kind of effect on me, was with Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg. ( my review just in case you're interested: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) It was just a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and, well, you know the drill, a fe...

    So, I liked it, but I was expecting more from the conclusion. It took me until about the halfway point before I really started to get into it, and then I was dying to finish it, just to be a little bit disappointed at the end. It felt pretty anticlimactic. I have never been a big f...

    The best book of the summer! Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable...

    Reread upgrade to 4 STARS I must have been in a bad mood when I first read THE PERFECT COUPLE. My reaction to the book and review bothered me, because I **should** have loved it. I?m keeping both reviews, though upping to 4 stars. I enjoyed THE PERFECT COUPLE much more the seco...

    The Perfect Couple was engagingly, delicious from the very beginning. Elin Hilderbrand grabs your attention and doesn?t let go. This was my first Elin Hilderbrand read but will not be my last. This book was bursting with mysterious twists and turns together with engaging and inte...

    3.5 This is not usually my preferred genre- although I find myself reading/ listening to a lot of it lately.This was "fast-paced and entertaining." Jennifer and Melissa wrote wonderful reviews for this title. PS Quotes = lifted verbatim from Jennifer's review. : )) ...

    I surprised myself how much I enjoyed this book. I was staying away from Hilderbrand thinking her books were female fiction, full of romance, which is rarely my thing. And so I was very hesitant to pick this up. However, after reading some great reviews from my GR friends I decided to ...

    The Perfect Couple is a light, fun and entertaining beach read. While it is billed as a murder mystery, I found it light on the mystery element but after all, it is intended as a book for the beach! The couple that appears to be perfect, Celeste and Benji, are about to be married at hi...

    Wow! What a great whodunit filled with secrets and mystery! The Perfect Couple is the story of a ritzy wedding on Nantucket where the maid of honor is found dead the day of the wedding. As I learned more about each character and their possible motives, my mind raced through several dif...

    Thanks to the publisher for this free review copy! * Beach - CHECK. Swanky Nantucket estate - CHECK. Wedding - CHECK. Fascinating characters - CHECK. (Light) murder mystery - CHECK. Seriously, just trust me on this one and throw this in your bag for any beach/pool trip or vacation yo...

    3.25 stars. This book didn?t sound like a-n-y-t-h-I-n-g I?d want to read. I?m so over Nantucket/Martha?s vineyard backdrops and stories about crazy rich/desperate housewives/privileged alpha males... aaaand I thought if I?d read another wedding-murder book I?d kill some...

    I hate to play favorites, but in this case, I don't feel like I have a choice. In my humble opinion, this is Elin Hilderbrand's best work yet. Combining her signature backdrop, riveting cast of characters and penchant for teasing the craveable local fare with the suspense of a murder...

    Ahhhhh Nantucket in the summer is bliss! It is a lovely place to vacation. It also serves as the perfect place for a wedding, the beach and a murder! The Otis-Winbury is going to be one to remember! The groom's family has arranged for the wedding to be the event of the season. A we...

    There were so many things that I enjoyed listening to this one (Audible). The setting was just dreamy-beach side in Nantucket with the sunny atmosphere. The characters were fun and relatable with some side notes of a little bit soap-opera inspired (which works in this story). I l...

    I didn?t like this book I adored it. Whilst reading this amazing story was all I could think about, every time I HAD to put this book down, I likened it to having to put a film on hold and all the characters were paused, eager for my return so they could continue their story!! The...

    I've read very little from Elin Hilderbrand, but the ratings have been so high with this 2018 release that I just couldn't resist. I have to agree with the masses. The Perfect Couple was a great read. It is an exploration of families and relationships with a death investigation as the ...

    Fantastic story! It captivated me from page 1 followed by SO SO many secrets and SO SO many twists. I didn't know which character to suspect. Her characters were complicated and imperfect (despite their wealth). They were also brought to life and made you care about them (well some of ...

    Compelling, mysterious, and deliciously entertaining! The Perfect Couple takes us to the beautiful island of Nantucket and into the lives of the rich and famous Winburys as they gather to celebrate a family wedding. But like most families with privilege, power, and money everything ...

    I?ve said it before and I?m sure I?ll repeat myself every single summer, but summer doesn?t officially start for me until I?ve read the latest Elin Hilderbrand novel. While I have several authors on my summer must read list every year, hers are the books I look forward to the...

    Whew! This was one twisty, turvy murder mystery/beach read where I swear I did not have the slightest idea whodunit until we got to the last page. Bravo, Elin Hildebrand! The theme here is relationships and secrets, and boy do these relationships have a ton! It was like every soap oper...

    There were so many things I disliked about this book. I've never read anything else by this author but she doesn't seem to be a mystery writer. The police procedure seemed extremely shaky. The cops spend one entire day "investigating" before giving up. This was women's fiction. Is the ...

    4 Summery Stars to "The Perfect Couple" I've been waiting all summer to get my hands on this book and I was able to read right before back-to-school! This book cements for me that I must get to Nantucket soon. I loved the descriptions of the beach house and island and Hilderbrand do...

    I've read very little from Elin Hilderbrand, but the ratings have been so high with this 2018 release that I just couldn't resist. I have to agree with the masses. The Perfect Couple was a great read. It is an exploration of families and relationships with a death investigation as the ...

    Whew! This was one twisty, turvy murder mystery/beach read where I swear I did not have the slightest idea whodunit until we got to the last page. Bravo, Elin Hildebrand! The theme here is relationships and secrets, and boy do these relationships have a ton! It was like every soap oper...

    There were so many things I disliked about this book. I've never read anything else by this author but she doesn't seem to be a mystery writer. The police procedure seemed extremely shaky. The cops spend one entire day "investigating" before giving up. This was women's fiction. Is the ...

    The last time a wedding had this kind of effect on me, was with Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg. ( my review just in case you're interested: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) It was just a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and, well, you know the drill, a fe...

    So, I liked it, but I was expecting more from the conclusion. It took me until about the halfway point before I really started to get into it, and then I was dying to finish it, just to be a little bit disappointed at the end. It felt pretty anticlimactic. I have never been a big f...

    The best book of the summer! Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable...

    Reread upgrade to 4 STARS I must have been in a bad mood when I first read THE PERFECT COUPLE. My reaction to the book and review bothered me, because I **should** have loved it. I?m keeping both reviews, though upping to 4 stars. I enjoyed THE PERFECT COUPLE much more the seco...

    The Perfect Couple was engagingly, delicious from the very beginning. Elin Hilderbrand grabs your attention and doesn?t let go. This was my first Elin Hilderbrand read but will not be my last. This book was bursting with mysterious twists and turns together with engaging and inte...

    3.5 This is not usually my preferred genre- although I find myself reading/ listening to a lot of it lately.This was "fast-paced and entertaining." Jennifer and Melissa wrote wonderful reviews for this title. PS Quotes = lifted verbatim from Jennifer's review. : )) ...

    I surprised myself how much I enjoyed this book. I was staying away from Hilderbrand thinking her books were female fiction, full of romance, which is rarely my thing. And so I was very hesitant to pick this up. However, after reading some great reviews from my GR friends I decided to ...

    The Perfect Couple is a light, fun and entertaining beach read. While it is billed as a murder mystery, I found it light on the mystery element but after all, it is intended as a book for the beach! The couple that appears to be perfect, Celeste and Benji, are about to be married at hi...

    Wow! What a great whodunit filled with secrets and mystery! The Perfect Couple is the story of a ritzy wedding on Nantucket where the maid of honor is found dead the day of the wedding. As I learned more about each character and their possible motives, my mind raced through several dif...

    Thanks to the publisher for this free review copy! * Beach - CHECK. Swanky Nantucket estate - CHECK. Wedding - CHECK. Fascinating characters - CHECK. (Light) murder mystery - CHECK. Seriously, just trust me on this one and throw this in your bag for any beach/pool trip or vacation yo...

    I've read very little from Elin Hilderbrand, but the ratings have been so high with this 2018 release that I just couldn't resist. I have to agree with the masses. The Perfect Couple was a great read. It is an exploration of families and relationships with a death investigation as the ...

    3.5 whodunit stars Ah to be rich, gorgeous, and have the perfect summer retreat! Can anything be better, the beach, the sand, the sun, the boats, the mansion, the murder...what wait....Welcome to the summer world in Erin Hilderbrand's The Perfect Couple. Everything is perfect on...

    I loved this book!!!!! The Perfect Couple begins with a celebration proceeding a wedding the next day. The maid of honor is discovered the next day, dead. The police is called to investigate whether there was foul play. What they learn is that the privileged in their sleepy town ...

    Fantastic story! It captivated me from page 1 followed by SO SO many secrets and SO SO many twists. I didn't know which character to suspect. Her characters were complicated and imperfect (despite their wealth). They were also brought to life and made you care about them (well some of ...

    Compelling, mysterious, and deliciously entertaining! The Perfect Couple takes us to the beautiful island of Nantucket and into the lives of the rich and famous Winburys as they gather to celebrate a family wedding. But like most families with privilege, power, and money everything ...

    I?ve said it before and I?m sure I?ll repeat myself every single summer, but summer doesn?t officially start for me until I?ve read the latest Elin Hilderbrand novel. While I have several authors on my summer must read list every year, hers are the books I look forward to the...

    Whew! This was one twisty, turvy murder mystery/beach read where I swear I did not have the slightest idea whodunit until we got to the last page. Bravo, Elin Hildebrand! The theme here is relationships and secrets, and boy do these relationships have a ton! It was like every soap oper...

    There were so many things I disliked about this book. I've never read anything else by this author but she doesn't seem to be a mystery writer. The police procedure seemed extremely shaky. The cops spend one entire day "investigating" before giving up. This was women's fiction. Is the ...

    4 Summery Stars to "The Perfect Couple" I've been waiting all summer to get my hands on this book and I was able to read right before back-to-school! This book cements for me that I must get to Nantucket soon. I loved the descriptions of the beach house and island and Hilderbrand do...

    Book club read #18. 10/20/2018. Finished 9/20... No way am I going to remember all these people 4 weeks from now when we meet to discuss. But had to take the book once the library had it available. Big hold list, very popular book. Popular author too but this is her first that I've ...

    Oh wow, I really loved this book! I have a few more books by this author listed on my TBR, including a signed copy of "Beautiful Day", so I will have to move them up the queue. I loved the setting and the writing style, as well as some of the twists and turns. Great story, definitely r...

    The last time a wedding had this kind of effect on me, was with Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg. ( my review just in case you're interested: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) It was just a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and, well, you know the drill, a fe...

    So, I liked it, but I was expecting more from the conclusion. It took me until about the halfway point before I really started to get into it, and then I was dying to finish it, just to be a little bit disappointed at the end. It felt pretty anticlimactic. I have never been a big f...

    The best book of the summer! Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable...

    Reread upgrade to 4 STARS I must have been in a bad mood when I first read THE PERFECT COUPLE. My reaction to the book and review bothered me, because I **should** have loved it. I?m keeping both reviews, though upping to 4 stars. I enjoyed THE PERFECT COUPLE much more the seco...

    The Perfect Couple was engagingly, delicious from the very beginning. Elin Hilderbrand grabs your attention and doesn?t let go. This was my first Elin Hilderbrand read but will not be my last. This book was bursting with mysterious twists and turns together with engaging and inte...

    The Perfect Couple is a light, fun and entertaining beach read. While it is billed as a murder mystery, I found it light on the mystery element but after all, it is intended as a book for the beach! The couple that appears to be perfect, Celeste and Benji, are about to be married at hi...

    Whew! This was one twisty, turvy murder mystery/beach read where I swear I did not have the slightest idea whodunit until we got to the last page. Bravo, Elin Hildebrand! The theme here is relationships and secrets, and boy do these relationships have a ton! It was like every soap oper...

    There were so many things I disliked about this book. I've never read anything else by this author but she doesn't seem to be a mystery writer. The police procedure seemed extremely shaky. The cops spend one entire day "investigating" before giving up. This was women's fiction. Is the ...

    4 Summery Stars to "The Perfect Couple" I've been waiting all summer to get my hands on this book and I was able to read right before back-to-school! This book cements for me that I must get to Nantucket soon. I loved the descriptions of the beach house and island and Hilderbrand do...

    Book club read #18. 10/20/2018. Finished 9/20... No way am I going to remember all these people 4 weeks from now when we meet to discuss. But had to take the book once the library had it available. Big hold list, very popular book. Popular author too but this is her first that I've ...

    Oh wow, I really loved this book! I have a few more books by this author listed on my TBR, including a signed copy of "Beautiful Day", so I will have to move them up the queue. I loved the setting and the writing style, as well as some of the twists and turns. Great story, definitely r...

    The last time a wedding had this kind of effect on me, was with Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg. ( my review just in case you're interested: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) It was just a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and, well, you know the drill, a fe...

    So, I liked it, but I was expecting more from the conclusion. It took me until about the halfway point before I really started to get into it, and then I was dying to finish it, just to be a little bit disappointed at the end. It felt pretty anticlimactic. I have never been a big f...

    The best book of the summer! Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable...

    Reread upgrade to 4 STARS I must have been in a bad mood when I first read THE PERFECT COUPLE. My reaction to the book and review bothered me, because I **should** have loved it. I?m keeping both reviews, though upping to 4 stars. I enjoyed THE PERFECT COUPLE much more the seco...
