Blanche’s Book Club: ‘The Perfect Couple’.

I honestly don’t even know what book I said I was going to read next, but I had a bunch of books checked out on the Libby app and basically let them expire… I really just needed a good book to hook me in and this one turned out to be it!

It’s “The Perfect Couple” by Elin Hilderbrand and honestly, when have I ever been disappointed by a Hilderbrand book?? Never! Here’s the scoop:

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.

I never thought I was into whodunnits, but this is the second one I’ve read this year and now I’m thinking I need to find some more of them (I smell a reading guide coming).

This one had me reading the pages as fast as possible and I think I created scenarios in my head for each character and it could have been anyone of them that did it.

I do feel like the book left some things unsaid, but I also know I got attached to these characters and it has to end sometime – ha!

I have probably said this before, but I love the way Hilderbrand explains Nantucket (especially the food) and it’s just a great escape that I can really picture, which is something I am always looking for in a book.

I would definitely recommend this book if you’re a fan of whodunnits and/or a Hilderbrand fan… or even if you’re just looking for an escape!

Are there any whodunnits I should look into?

I started another book: “How to Save a Life” by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke.
