The Perfect Couple (MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers) Reviews
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
I typically love Elim Hilderbrand’s novel, but this one was just okay.
I found it challenging to connect with any of the characters. Celeste and Benji seemed like such a perfect couple, but there were small nuances that irritated me with each character.
My biggest disappointment in this book is the ending. I won’t spoil it for anyone, but I wanted more. Everything just seemed to wrap up too neat and tidy.
If you’re looking for a quick beach read, this book is for you.
Thanks to NetGalley and Little ...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
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 author being paid for product placements? There were an awful lot of brand names mentioned. I hated all of the characters, including the victim. The book hops back and forth in time and among points of view. I skim ...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
When love is just out of reach, what lengths will one take to have it back again?
This is the question for many of the characters in Elin Hilderbrand's newest work that shows two's company and three's a crowd.
It all began July 7th, 2018 and shifting through time back to two years prior to set up the plot.
Summer is a time of fun, enjoyment, and yes, weddings in Nantucket and of course, every summer the summer folks arrive to stake claim to the fun in the sun.
This year was no different but it did c ...more

As an Elin Hilderbrand newbie, I picked a fantastic book to get my feet wet!
Can you imagine what it would be like to find your best friend, your maid of honor, dead on your wedding day? Wow! I cannot even imagine how horrible that would be. This very unimaginable event is the premise of this story.
Celeste and Benji are getting married on the beautiful island of Nantucket. On the morning of their wedding Celeste’s maid of honor (Merri ...more
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 opera you’ve ever watched on steroids, while on the beach, wrapped up in a not the least bit gory murder mystery (for those like me who are easily grossed out) that is well-paced and keeps the twists and turns coming. ...more
