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. I ...more
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’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
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 someone... but when a friend updated she was enjoying this book I decided to go for it and read “what’s trending” for.
Sucked me in... so much so that it took my sisters wedding (truly!) to get me to stop... and I jumped right back in ...more
Expertly crafted. Elin brings you right to the edge, so that every character is suspect, everyone has a motive.
The novel begins with the discovery of the body of the maid-of-honor on a private beach by the bride, the morning of the wedding. From this point we are taken on the investigation that covers the entire book to the very end, where I guarantee, you will never guess what actually happened. I tried, all through out this page-turner, and failed.
Don't bother turning to the last chapter or pa ...more
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 wedding. Celeste wakes on the morning of her special day to find her only friend and maid of honor, Merritt, floating along the shore of her in-law’s Summerland compound. The question becomes, was it an accident or was s ...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.
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 mystery—you better believe, I soaked up every moment in the Nantucket sun.
This year, Elin Hilderbrand lures readers back to the picturesque Nantucket island with the invitation to a prominent wedding. Until the m ...more
