Looking for a new and exciting read for the spring season? Are you tired of the same old story being told over and over with the same predictable plot? Well, I have the perfect book for you. “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reid is an incredible story of fortune, fame and family that anyone would love.
Evelyn Hugo hasn’t been heard from since the 80s. Her grand life was mesmerizing for many. Everyone wanted to know her story, and now she is ready to tell it. When Monique Grant was given the chance to tell Evelyn’s story, she was hesitant to accept. Why would a famous Hollywood recluse want her to write her story? Monique decides to take this once- in- a- lifetime opportunity to get to know the one and only Evelyn Hugo. As Evelyn recounts her glamorous life in Hollywood and the truth behind her many husbands, she also reveals what many have always wanted to know, who was the love of Evelyn Hugo’s life.
Taylor Jenkins Reid’s ability to weave such an intricate tale is truly amazing. The character that is Evelyn Hugo is so incredibly deep that the reader truly feels for her. While you read “The Seven Husbands” it is almost as if you too are falling for Evelyn’s charms. Jenkins Reid has an undeniable skill at creating deep characters. She makes you want to hate Evelyn for her choices but at the same time you can’t help but love her. I highly recommend you read “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” if you are looking for a book that will change your life.
