Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: It's Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer--the sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at Madaket Beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom's wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate. But it's going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash interviews the bride, the groom, the groom's famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield--and no couple is perfect.

    There's no such thing as the perfect couple, and Hilderbrand's (The Identicals, 2017) beachy latest is chock-full of examples. There's Greer and Tag Winbury, British expats opening their Nantucket estate for their younger son Benji's wedding over the Fourth of July weekend. Greer's mystery-writing career is petering out, which upsets her less than her conviction that Tag is cheating. Celeste, Benji's fiancée, worries that her working-class parents won't fit in with the Winburys, which would be especially cruel since her mother is dying of cancer. All of these issues, though, pale in comparison to the maid of honor washing up on shore on the morning of the wedding, dead. The time line moves between the present, the start of the holiday weekend, and the beginning of Benji and Celeste's relationship, allowing the reader to slowly put the pieces together with the Nantucket police. Or try to. Hilderbrand throws enough curveballs to keep readers guessing, but not too many, maintaining the breezy pace her novels are known for. The mystery element is new, but The Perfect Couple is classic Hilderbrand. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
