Elin Hilderbrand, the “Queen of the summer novel,” returns just in time for summer with The Perfect Couple, a juicy beach read filled with drama, lust, love--and for the first time, mystery!
When Celeste Otis, a sheltered, smart and beautiful zoologist meets Benji Winbury, the charming and sophisticated son of a wealthy family, she is thrown into the glamorous world of weekends on Nantucket, endless caviar and oysters, and boat rides at sunset. Their engagement is quickly announced, and the Winbury family begins planning a lavish and unforgettable wedding at their Nantucket estate. The wedding is set to happen quickly, so that Celeste’s mother (who is battling stage 4 breast cancer) can be there to see her only daughter wed. Yet the festivities take a tragic turn when the bride-to-be finds her maid of honor dead in the harbor, and everyone’s secrets quickly unravel.
Soon, the whole island of Nantucket is abuzz about “The Murdered Maid of Honor,” and everyone is asking the same questions: Is it possible that she was a troubled party girl whose death was merely an accident? Or was she murdered to protect a secret? Is the Winbury family as flawless as they appear? Was there something suspicious going on between Celeste and Benji? As the Chief of Police interviews his prime suspects--including the Otis and Winbury Families--he begins to shatter the illusion of perfection and happiness surrounding the impending wedding, and stumbles upon scandal after scandal.
The Perfect Couple is a drama-filled page turner, with every character unique, relatable, and intriguing. This is the first time Elin addresses breast cancer in a novel since her own diagnosis and treatment in 2014. Avid Elin readers will recognize characters from The Castaways, Beautiful Day, A Summer Affair, and Nantucket Nights making guest appearances!
