Description

From New York Times best-selling author Elin Hilderbrand, comes a novel about the many ways family can fill our lives with love...if they don't kill us first.

It's wedding season on Nantucket. The beautiful island is overrun with summer people - an annual source of aggravation for year-round residents. And that's not the only tension brewing offshore. When one lavish wedding ends in disaster before it can even begin - with the bride-to-be discovered dead in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony - everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash digs into the best man, the maid of honor, the groom's famous mystery novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, the chief discovers that every wedding is a minefield - and no couple is perfect.

Featuring beloved characters from The Castaways and A Summer Affair, The Perfect Couple proves once again that Elin Hilderbrand is the queen of the summer beach book.

Good book but the narration is very annoying

The story is pretty good but the narration was driving me crazy. Everything is ‘he said. She said. He said. She said.’ It gets old quickly and becomes quite distracting. There is also a lot of characters so it takes a while to understand who is who. But over all a good story. I’d suggest reading this one though.

Summer Beach Read/Listen

#Audible1
Elin Hilderbrand, The Perfect Couple
A good summer beach read or listen. It was a little lighter than her usual books, seemed a little redundant at times. But a nice easy read for the summer. The narration was excellent also.

Book club pick

This was the selected book for a book club, and I would recommend it for other book clubs as it touched on many issues that will make good conversation. The audio version was easy to stay interested in, the narrator did a fantastic job!

One of the worst books I've ever read.

There was no main character. Written in first person with a cast of characters so huge, none of them were really developed. It was a love story with no happy ending. The good guys lost. The murder turned out not to be murder. Just a group of people who were just nasty. Total waste of my time! Will not read another by this author.

Wow

Wow! I could barely wait to get to the end of this book to see what would happen. I was not disappointed. A great thriller.

The Perfect Couple

This was a great book! There were many twists and turns that kept me guessing throughout, not only about the main storyline but in some of the related side stories as well. The characters were believable and well-developed. The narrator was fantastic. The story did take a little while to develop but I'm glad I stayed with it. This is not a story that will keep you at the edge of your seat but it will keep your interest (especially as the wedding nears) and will be worth the read.

Perfect summer listen

I'm a fan of Elin Hildebrand and I enjoyed this, couldn't stop listening. There is a death on the morning of the wedding that doesn't hsppen. There is a mystery and lots of secrets are revealed. Only 4 stars for the story as the relationship between the bride and groom never quite works. But v re ry enjoyable nonetheless, the other characters were very well drawn.

Fun read!

I love thrillers and this was really fun. Good twist at the end, I can usually see them coming but this was one wasn't obvious. Will likely get another from the author again

Puzzled

I can’t figure out if Elin Hilderbrand always wrote so awkwardly or if it’s a new “style”. The way she jumps around characters, and the back and forth from the past and present left me cold. There were so many throw away characters that added nothing to the story I lost track- one or two paragraphs about some peripheral character with a first and last name and a few details about their life that led nowhere. It felt like the author finished the book, decided it was too short, made up a list of people that might live there and went back in and inserted them in here and there. There were many extraneous details that were thrown in as well that went nowhere- Scooter’s Mother’s demise, for example, was thrown in at the end for no reason. There wasn’t much resolution for any of the plot lines. Just really disappointed. I use to love her books.

A Great Escape

I wanted to read a book that would declutter my mind from the mundane of everyday life! A great escape!

Good book!

This book had some really unexpected twists and turns. It makes you realize that no couple, or family, is "perfect".
