The island of Nantucket is swarming with tourists (same as every summer) and wedding season is in full swing–an annual annoyance for year-round residents.

Every member of the wedding is a suspect, and Chief of Police Ed Kapenash certainly has his hands full. He soon learns the hard way that there is no such thing as a perfect couple. Elin Hilderbrand–queen of summer reading–brings back some of her most beloved characters in this perfect beach book. Signed copies are also available for a limited time!
