The Perfect Couple (MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers) by Elin Hilderbrand #erinhilderbrand #litttlebrownandcompany #summerread #familydrama @absltmom

Ah to be rich, gorgeous, and have the perfect summer retreat! Can’t anything be better, the beach, the sand, the sun, the boats, the mansion, the murder…what wait….Welcome to the summer world in Erin Hilderbrand’s The Perfect Couple.

The Perfect Couple  Everything is perfect on the island of Nantucket. It is the wedding weekend for Benji and Celeste, soon to be the perfect couple are to be wed. The wedding thrown so lavishly and brilliantly by Benji’s parents Tag and Greer Winbury, truly the perfect couple, will be a gala affair. All is ready, all is perfect and then the maid of honor is found dead floating in the water by the bride to be and perfection turns to mayhem as there is the possibility that she has been murdered. So much for perfection!

There are secrets circling and all that perfection does take on a huge hue of tarnishing. As the secrets unfold we find a family in an emotional chaos and the fun begins as the chief of police tries to find out what really happened to our maid of honor

This was a quick easy read, one that was fraught with clues to the demise of said maid of honor. All the main participants had emotional whatnots going on and we find that perfection is not something any of them really carry around. I enjoyed the play of characters and the way in which this author unfurled their many indiscretions and foibles. The was my first book by Ms Hilderbrand’s and I have to say I will be back for more “romantic” fun

Elin Hilderbrand first discovered the magic of Nantucket in July 1993. Her recipe for a happy island life includes running, writing at the beach, picnics at Eel Point with her three children, and singing “Home, Sweet Home” at the Club Car piano bar. Here’s to Us is her seventeenth novel.
