The Perfect Couple
What it's all about...
First of all...these books are all about Nantucket. I want to go to Bartlett’s Farm and get tomatoes and Portuguese bread for a toasted tomato sandwich. I want the crab shrimp scallops burger with watermelon limeade from Surfside Beach Shack. I want the Lola burger and fries that handsome Nick the Greek ate on his way to interview the bride...Celeste. I want the $10.00 passion fruit water ice while I sit on the bench and watch the boats.

A wonderful summer beach read! The Perfect Couple is one of Elin Hildebrand's best.
"The moment their eyes meet, the moment their hands touch. That certainty. That recognition. You. You are the one. This is what it feels like. Nothing, as it turns out, can take place of love."
"The bread has been toasted golden brown, the slices of tomato are thick and juicy, seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, and there is exactly the right amount of mayonnaise to make the sandwich tangy and lusciou ...more
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 of Nantucket, have secrets. There are many potential suspects and motives and I have to admit, by 98% into the story, I still hadn't figured it out. But by the time I got to the end, I still wanted more.
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 most, she really is the queen of the beach read and The Perfect Couple is her best book yet!
While Hilderbrand’s books definitely aren’t always sunshine and cocktails, this was a bit of a departure from her previous books. T ...more
You know summer isn't too far away when a new Elin Hilderbrand book is coming out. Although this book focuses on a wedding being held on Nantucket it is not your typical love story. Hours before Celeste and Benji are to be married in an extravagant affair, the body of the maid of honor is found floating in the bay. Was it an accident? Was it murder? That's exactly what the Chief of Police is trying to find out. This book is told with alternating perspectives and flashbacks which makes it move al ...more
I adore Hilderbrand’s books. This is definitely in my top five favorites of hers. I seriously hope there is a sequel to this one. I need to know more about what happens to Celeste. I am now craving lobster and want to purchase a pair of Nantucket reds. I would love to visit Nantucket one day but if I am not able to I love doing so vicariously through Hilderbrand’s wonderful books.
Netgalley provided me an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
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 (mentally trying to stop myself from saying cover girl but I can't) if at least it's fun. This novel was fun for the first 30% then it got boring, and then it got long and when I finally hit the last chapter it took that tu ...more
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 Perfect Couple is Hilderbrand’s first foray into murder mystery writing and also incorporates some beloved characters from her past books.
Wedding season is synonymous for “summer people” on Nantucket, and that is when the island is u ...more
