The Perfect Couple Reviews
The Perfect Couple is a light, fun and entertaining beach read. While it is billed as a murder mystery, I found it light on the mystery element but after all, it is intended as a book for the beach! The couple that appears to be perfect, Celeste and Benji, are about to be married at his parents’ palatial Nantucket home. But on the morning of the wedding, Celeste’s best friend, who is also the maid of honor, is found floating in the water at the beach in the backyard, where the reception is to be ...more
I surprised myself how much I enjoyed this book. I was staying away from Hilderbrand thinking her books were female fiction, full of romance, which is rarely my thing. And so I was very hesitant to pick this up. However, after reading some great reviews from my GR friends I decided to give it a go. And I'm sooo glad I did.
First of all, I want to point out that the Perfect Couple is a murder mystery! Perhaps that contributed to how much I adored it? The book starts on the morning of Celeste's w ...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.
The Queen of the "Beach Read" is holding onto that crown for one more year!!!!!
The Perfect Couple has something I always love from an Elin Hilderbrand book - nods to characters from her old books. My two favorite books of hers are The Castaways and The Blue Bistro and this one has tons of characters from The Castaways!!!! (Note - you do not need to have read that one to enjoy this one!)

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
I didn’t like this book I adored it. Whilst reading this amazing story was all I could think about, every time I HAD to put this book down, I likened it to having to put a film on hold and all the characters were paused, eager for my return so they could continue their story!!
The fairytale wedding between very wealthy Benji and Celeste should be the wedding of the year, no expense spared and all organised by the grooms Mother Greer.

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
3.5 This is not usually my preferred genre- although I find myself reading/ listening to a lot of it lately.This was "fast-paced and entertaining." Jennifer and Melissa wrote wonderful reviews for this title.
