Review: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand

Blurb from Goodreads:
From New York Times bestselling 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 read. 
My Review:
Elin Hilderbrand's books, which are typically released in early summer/late spring every year, are the official start of summer for me.  The Perfect Couple is no exception and I found myself immediately sinking into its world.  There are some repeat characters from one of Elin's other novels, The Castaways, which I loved revisiting.  But even without the familiar characters (which are only tangential in this book), I could not put this book down!  I had to know what happened.  This was slightly different from Elin's other books in that it was sort of a murder mystery but so much more complex than that.  I love Celeste and found myself turning every page with anticipation and delight.  I'm definitely in the mood for summer now!

The Perfect Couple comes out next week on June 19, 2018, you can purchase HERE!  This book is definitely another winner from Elin and the official start of summer!!
Miranda's eyes widen. The mother huffs and Celeste smiles indulgently as if to convey that she know how tedious trips to the zoo can be. The things parents do for their children! The fighting couple are expensively dressed, lots of suede and cashmere, a nice watch on the man, ballet flats on the woman, and she carries some kid of designer bag. (Merritt would be able to identify not only the designer abut also the year; she feels about bags the way that most men feel about Corvettes.) Genus: Manhattan, Celeste things. Species: Upper East Side. Their natural habitat includes doormen and cabs, private school and Bergdorf's.
It's a typical sighting here at the Bronx Zoo.
