    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...

    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...

    2 Stars Slated as this years must have summer beach read I went into this novel not expecting to be intellectually stimulated. Obviously this was going to be light and easy read, but there's nothing wrong with switching off your brain and delving into something easy, breezy (ment...

    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 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 ...

    The Queen of the "Beach Read" is holding onto that crown for one more year!!!!! The Perfect Couple has something I always love from an Elin Hilderbrand book - nods to characters from her old books. My two favorite books of hers are The Castaways and The Blue Bistro and this one has ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    4.5 Stars for this mystery beach read by Elin Hilderbrand. Once again Elin Hilderbrand takes us back to beautiful Nantucket island. It is the wedding of the year with Benji Winbury and Celeste Otis tying the know. All is not well when the nuptials are cancelled on the day of the weddin...

    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...

    Stop right there, I've found your perfect beach read! Even though I'm a sworn fan of all her books and summer just isn't the same without one of her novels, I agree with one of the reviews that stated that this is Hilderbrand's best. It contains every element of a five-star beach book....

    Excellent!!? ...

    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...

    Amazing. Such a page turner. I loved it and couldn't put it down. With these ARCs, I do know that I'm spoiling my summer reading experience by not having an Elin book to devour out on the lake but I can't help it. I'll read every word she writes as long as she keeps writing. The Pe...

    Somehow, Elin Hilderbrand has written her best book yet. (It's difficult to say what's a "best" book out of two dozen incredible novels, but this is right up there at the top.) Along with the things you've come to expect from Elin: gorgeous setting, sumptuous descriptions, complex and ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    4.5 Stars for this mystery beach read by Elin Hilderbrand. Once again Elin Hilderbrand takes us back to beautiful Nantucket island. It is the wedding of the year with Benji Winbury and Celeste Otis tying the know. All is not well when the nuptials are cancelled on the day of the weddin...

    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...

    Stop right there, I've found your perfect beach read! Even though I'm a sworn fan of all her books and summer just isn't the same without one of her novels, I agree with one of the reviews that stated that this is Hilderbrand's best. It contains every element of a five-star beach book....

    Excellent!!? ...

    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...

    Amazing. Such a page turner. I loved it and couldn't put it down. With these ARCs, I do know that I'm spoiling my summer reading experience by not having an Elin book to devour out on the lake but I can't help it. I'll read every word she writes as long as she keeps writing. The Pe...

    Somehow, Elin Hilderbrand has written her best book yet. (It's difficult to say what's a "best" book out of two dozen incredible novels, but this is right up there at the top.) Along with the things you've come to expect from Elin: gorgeous setting, sumptuous descriptions, complex and ...

    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...

    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...

    What a fantastically sad ending!! Not a crying one, but one that really kicks you in the gut because of some characters actions to what they thought was a problem that wasn't going to be a problem at all. Wow, so many suspects. Or may there were just one or two or many unknowingly h...

    Pleasantly surprised by this one. I have abandoned the last few Elin Hilderbrand books I have started; I feel like she has adultery as a plot point in *every* single book and in the last few, it felt glorified and romanticized. There is adultery in this one but it is a page-turning rea...

    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...

    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 ...

    The Queen of the "Beach Read" is holding onto that crown for one more year!!!!! The Perfect Couple has something I always love from an Elin Hilderbrand book - nods to characters from her old books. My two favorite books of hers are The Castaways and The Blue Bistro and this one has ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    4.5 Stars for this mystery beach read by Elin Hilderbrand. Once again Elin Hilderbrand takes us back to beautiful Nantucket island. It is the wedding of the year with Benji Winbury and Celeste Otis tying the know. All is not well when the nuptials are cancelled on the day of the weddin...

    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...

    Stop right there, I've found your perfect beach read! Even though I'm a sworn fan of all her books and summer just isn't the same without one of her novels, I agree with one of the reviews that stated that this is Hilderbrand's best. It contains every element of a five-star beach book....

    Excellent!!? ...

    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...

    Amazing. Such a page turner. I loved it and couldn't put it down. With these ARCs, I do know that I'm spoiling my summer reading experience by not having an Elin book to devour out on the lake but I can't help it. I'll read every word she writes as long as she keeps writing. The Pe...

    Somehow, Elin Hilderbrand has written her best book yet. (It's difficult to say what's a "best" book out of two dozen incredible novels, but this is right up there at the top.) Along with the things you've come to expect from Elin: gorgeous setting, sumptuous descriptions, complex and ...

    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...

    What a fantastically sad ending!! Not a crying one, but one that really kicks you in the gut because of some characters actions to what they thought was a problem that wasn't going to be a problem at all. Wow, so many suspects. Or may there were just one or two or many unknowingly h...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    4.5 Stars for this mystery beach read by Elin Hilderbrand. Once again Elin Hilderbrand takes us back to beautiful Nantucket island. It is the wedding of the year with Benji Winbury and Celeste Otis tying the know. All is not well when the nuptials are cancelled on the day of the weddin...

    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...

    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...

    Amazing. Such a page turner. I loved it and couldn't put it down. With these ARCs, I do know that I'm spoiling my summer reading experience by not having an Elin book to devour out on the lake but I can't help it. I'll read every word she writes as long as she keeps writing. The Pe...

    Somehow, Elin Hilderbrand has written her best book yet. (It's difficult to say what's a "best" book out of two dozen incredible novels, but this is right up there at the top.) Along with the things you've come to expect from Elin: gorgeous setting, sumptuous descriptions, complex and ...

    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...

    What a fantastically sad ending!! Not a crying one, but one that really kicks you in the gut because of some characters actions to what they thought was a problem that wasn't going to be a problem at all. Wow, so many suspects. Or may there were just one or two or many unknowingly h...

    Pleasantly surprised by this one. I have abandoned the last few Elin Hilderbrand books I have started; I feel like she has adultery as a plot point in *every* single book and in the last few, it felt glorified and romanticized. There is adultery in this one but it is a page-turning rea...

    One of the best ?beach reads? I have read in years. The book is long, but a fast read. The characters and plot will stick with you long after you?ve finished this book. ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
