Although we would like to have everything neatly tied up -- I think it leaves us to continue thinking about the book long after we finish it. I told my husband that I had just finished a good book -- and he wanted to hear about it. There were so many different characters with such different lives that it was hard to put it into a few bullet points. Certainly the author left me hungry for more -- now I want to read all her other books and see if they are as good.

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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 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...

    Elin Hilderbrand has been at the top of her game. She has published 22 novels and I have read several thus far, they are all finely executed. Her characters are intriguing and they evolve throughout the story, they are dynamic (which some authors don't quite achieve). Her plot line was...

    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...

    When it comes to books that allow you to escape, Elin Hilderbrand cannot be beat. She paints a vivid picture of Nantucket...everything from the scenery, to the sounds of the waves, and even the food. She engages all of the readers senses and allows us to feel like we are on Nantucket, ...

    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 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 ...

    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...

    The Perfect Couple had so many components that I enjoyed. I loved that there was a mystery surrounding the death of the maid of honor. The Who Done It, kept me on my toes. There were so many possibilities although I excluded a bunch of suspects from the first couple of chapters. I...

    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...

    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 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...

    Elin Hilderbrand has been at the top of her game. She has published 22 novels and I have read several thus far, they are all finely executed. Her characters are intriguing and they evolve throughout the story, they are dynamic (which some authors don't quite achieve). Her plot line was...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    The Perfect Couple had so many components that I enjoyed. I loved that there was a mystery surrounding the death of the maid of honor. The Who Done It, kept me on my toes. There were so many possibilities although I excluded a bunch of suspects from the first couple of chapters. I...

    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...

    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 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...

    Elin Hilderbrand has been at the top of her game. She has published 22 novels and I have read several thus far, they are all finely executed. Her characters are intriguing and they evolve throughout the story, they are dynamic (which some authors don't quite achieve). Her plot line was...

    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...

    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...

    The Perfect Couple had so many components that I enjoyed. I loved that there was a mystery surrounding the death of the maid of honor. The Who Done It, kept me on my toes. There were so many possibilities although I excluded a bunch of suspects from the first couple of chapters. I...

    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 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...

    Elin Hilderbrand has been at the top of her game. She has published 22 novels and I have read several thus far, they are all finely executed. Her characters are intriguing and they evolve throughout the story, they are dynamic (which some authors don't quite achieve). Her plot line was...
