I didn't like this book I adored it. Whilst reading this amazing story was all I could think about, every time I HAD to put this book down, I likened it to having to put a film on hold and all the characters were paused, eager for my return so they could continue their story!!
The fairytale wedding between very wealthy Benji and Celeste should be the wedding of the year, no expense spared and all organised by the grooms Mother Greer.
On the morning of the wedding Maid of Honour Merritt is discovered dead, that is when you realise all is not well in paradise and that there are many secrets to be revealed, before we find out what really happened to Merritt.
What was there not to like in this book It has everything I love in a novel, glamour, secrets, affairs and murder all nicely told in 2 timelines. The time leading up to Benji and Celeste meeting and falling in love and the lead up to their wedding. the characters are so wealthy and have amazing names like Merritt and Greer!! I looked up Nantucket and I'm desperate to go there now and have a tiny taste of paradise.
I have to say even right at the end of the book, I hadn't completely worked out what had happened to Merritt as everybody seemed to be hiding secrets and acting guiltily.
I would love to read another book set in Nantucket with the same great characters appearing in it, especially Chief Ed Kapenash and Nick Diamantopoulos and what happens to all the other memorable characters!!
This to my surprise is Elin Hildrebran's twenty first novel and my first ever book I've read of hers, so I have some major catching up to do. I recommend you to read this book which should come with a warning that its highly addictive and you won't be able to put it down!!
After all that talk about Lobster I feel a craving coming on for some, and as the saying goes "If you can't beat them join them"
