Don’t Miss This Brilliant Whodunit Novel by Elin Hilderbrand- Coming 6/19/18–I loved Every Page!

 

The Perfect Couple is a superbly crafted, captivating, mystery. 

The most expensive event of the summer on Nantucket was to be the marriage celebration between Benjamin Winbury and Celeste Otis. It was being held at the Winbury’s Nantucket beachfront home. Greer spared no cost in planning Benji and Celeste’s happy day. The only wrinkle, Greer could see, affecting her son’s wedding, was the report of a missing person, and the dead body that was floating in front of their home, the morning of the wedding.

Everyone at the Winbury home was being questioned; nerves were on edge, hearts were shattered, fear was everywhere as the intricate web of sordid, dark secrets were unearthed, one by one. 

The Perfect Couple is an incredible whodunit mystery, crafted with an intriguing plot, flowing dialog and colorful characters. There wasn’t a dull page in the entire book. The characters are beautifully developed, realistic and flawed. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that I never figured out who the true villain was. Brilliantly crafted. I loved it!

Thank you, Little, Brown & Co. Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand–5 stars–Book Review

A winter solstice.:850.jpg

Winter Solstice —A Beautiful Story of Love, Forgiveness and Acceptance—Coming 10/3/17!

 

Winter Solstice is an amazing and beautifully written novel, about living, loving, and weathering the storms that show up in life. The author draws the reader deep into the heart of the Quinn family, a healing, blended family from Nantucket. Kelly Quinn is dying from brain cancer. He is fortunate, though, to have a good relationship with his children, his current wife, Mitzi, and his ex-wife, Margaret. Although Margaret and Mitzi are cordial and work together now for the children and Kelly’s sake, that had not always been the case. Margaret’s children, Patrick, Kevin, and Ava have all lived under Mitzi and Kelly’s roof for years; along with Bart, Mitzi and Kelly’s only child. All of the children in this book are grown and struggle with some very adult issues.

The author’s writing is sharp and descriptive. She effortlessly places the reader deep into each character’s life. I came to know the characters intimately and cared for them all. I felt their pain, their struggles, and their joy. Because the author covers a wide range of topics and difficulties, readers will easily be able to identify with some of the character’s experiences; such as love and betrayal, choices and consequences, selfishness and sacrifice and forgiveness and acceptance. Nobody is perfect, and everyone must live with the consequences of their decisions. Pain is a part of life, but so is joy, acceptance, and love.

I had a hard time keeping the characters straight at first. But, once I did, I couldn’t put the book down. Winter Solstice is an in-depth, enjoyable, and well-written read.

Thank you, Little, Brown and Company and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand

Image 7-22-17 at 7.22 PM.jpg

Check Out, Elin Hilderbrand’s Newest Release–The Identicals

The Identicals is a brilliantly crafted, complex, family drama. Eleanor Frost is a driven career woman. Her success, however, would come at a hefty price. Eleanor sacrificed the love of her family for her business. She divorced her husband, Billy, and insisted that one of their twin daughters live with her, and the other with Billy. Tabitha and Harper, were identical twins, and inseparable until their parent’s divorced. Tabitha stayed with Eleanor, much to her dismay, on Nantucket, and Harper went with Billy to Martha’s Vineyard. Eleanor had no idea at the time of the separation, just how much her selfish decision would cost her daughters. The twin’s relationship would suffer terribly, and they would not see one another, for any length of time, until Billy died, fourteen years later.

Tabitha thought her sister had it easy. Harper didn’t have to contend with her mother’s impossible demands. She also didn’t have an out-of-control teenage daughter to raise. Harper had a perfect life, Tabitha thought. She did what she wanted to do and had the matching reputation to prove it. Harper didn’t care about anyone. But, that wasn’t true, Harper cared a great deal. She also carried a heavy load of guilt around with her every day. However, after their father died, Tabitha thought she had the perfect punishment for Harper. They would switch places for the summer. Instead of it being a punishment, however, it turned out to be a positive learning experience for both of them. And for Tabitha, the best thing that could ever happen to her.

Love, forgiveness, and healing would touch many lives on those two Islands. Owning up to selfish mistakes was the first step in healing for the Frost family; the second was forgiveness. I loved this book. It’s a well-crafted, complex story, with realistically flawed characters. They all had lessons to learn, and by the end of the book, I knew every character intimately and felt deeply for them. The Identicals completely captivated me until the very last page. I highly recommend giving it a read.

Thank you, Little, Brown and Company and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
