Book Review: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand

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 picture them so clearly in my mind. 

It's a roller coaster of a novel- first you think a young couple is in love and on the verge of happily ever after. They are rich, talented and envied. Hundreds of people are coming to their lavish wedding and they are the envy of everyone around them. And then there is a tragedy: the bride finds her maid of honor dead on the beach, the morning of her wedding. 

Everything starts to unravel after that point. Secrets that you WILL NOT see coming reveal themselves and your jaw will hit the floor. Every person has a secret to hide.

It's a love story, it's a mystery, it's thrilling and entertaining. It's like Forensic Files had a baby with Big Little Lies. 

I make that comparison because not only do you read multiple characters' points of view, you also get an inside look of the stuff the main characters don't see: the Chief investigator's discoveries about evidence and who is responsible for the maid of honor's death, for example. 

I don't want to go into too much detail because of spoilers, and you can read the general overview in the novel's description but I just want to tell you: READ THIS BOOK!

Thank you to Brown and Company for my review copy, all opinions are in deed my own!
