The Carmichaels and Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride’s late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter’s future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event – but in reality, things are far from perfect.


While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken . . .


In BEAUTIFUL DAY Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a journey into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honour our commitments.

Thanks to Bookbridgr and Hodder for sending me a copy to review .I loved the cover and had never read any of this authors previous books so was excited to start this one.

I enjoyed this book and the style of writing .The author is very descriptive of the location ,I could imagine it very clearly as I was reading .

The story is mainly told from Doug the brides father and Margot the brides sister pov .I did feel for Margot as she had a lot of responsibility on her shoulders and was being mucked about by her lover .

I think it would have been helpful to the story to have read how the bride was  feeling leading up to and including her big day ,though I think its different to not have the focus on the bride .

This is  a story of love,grief,family and secrets.
