The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Cover: 'The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo'

Staff Review: "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" by Taylor Jenkins Reid


Hollywood icon Evelyn Hugo is in her 80s and ready to spill the truth about her scandalous and glamorous life that she has kept secret for years. Evelyn contacts Monique, a low-profile journalist just starting her career. Through one-on-one interview sessions, Evelyn spills everything to Monique: how she made it to Hollywood, how her mega-star second husband was abusive, and her biggest secret of all-who is her one true love? There is more to the story of Evelyn Hugo's seven husbands than the tabloids had back in the day. Oddly enough, Monique finds how Evelyn's tragic story is related to her own life years later. Highly addictive, this novel and will keep any reader captivated with all the glitz and glam of old Hollywood. Evelyn Hugo is inpsired by Hollywood icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, and her life story will keep readers plowing through this novel. Highly recommended for any fans of chick lit, romance, and anyone looking for a guilty pleasure.
