The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
By Taylor Jenkins Reid
I’ve been reading a lot of mysteries lately and decided to change things up a bit with this one. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
The book is about Evelyn Hugo, an aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon who tells her glamorous and scandalous life story to a young, unknown journalist. Evelyn, nearing 80, wants this final interview to be her tell-all story, holding back nothing and insists that this journalist cover it. As Evelyn’s life unfolds it reveals her ruthless ambition, the reality of her seven marriages, an unexpected friendship, and a secret love.
