The Perfect Couple (MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers) Reviews
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 characters, people I could picture being friends with and others I wanted to shove. They were introduced quickly but the fact that you get to read various points of views make the story line easy to follow. I could pi ...more
The perfect mix of wealth, scandal, lies, love, and a dead body... found on the beautiful Nantucket beaches, with which Hilderbrand has built her brand.
This was a 24 hour read for me- an intriguing (not brain busting), unique, and light “who dunnit” for summer 2018. If you enjoy her other books, you will absolutely love this! If you haven’t had the pleasure, this is a great one to test the waters.
Looking forward to Winter In Paradise, coming out later this year.

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
Somehow, Elin Hilderbrand has written her best book yet. (It's difficult to say what's a "best" book out of two dozen incredible novels, but this is right up there at the top.) Along with the things you've come to expect from Elin: gorgeous setting, sumptuous descriptions, complex and misbehaving characters -- she throws in a murder mystery. We also get some recurring characters from one of my other favs of hers, The Castaways. THE PERFECT COUPLE is Nantucket at its most beautiful and festive an ...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 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.

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.
