The seven husband of Evelyn Hugo Book Review




Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds through the decades—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.


The seven husband of Evelyn Hugo Book Review



What first caught my eye on this book is the title I was on Goodreads and a user updates her progress and I grew curious and added to my TBR list.


This is a beautiful, touching story about love, failures, finding love again and lose.


Monique Grant works in a magazine and 50’s icon Evelyne Hugo requested her to do an interview. The editor of the magazine had sent a more “qualified” journalists but Evelyne wants to talk only to her.


Evelyn Hugo is a 50’s icon with a long-standing career and infamous for her seven marriages. When Monique finally meets her, Evelyn confesses she wants her to write her biography not to do an interview and to publish it once she passes away. Monique agrees after a number of conditions. Evelyn beings to relieve everything how she made it to Hollywood, how her career started and the reason why all of these marriages.  


I never read anything by this author before and boy can she write. The words were so beautiful and it had me in tears a few times. Evelyn although did some bad choices she’s a likable, entreating character and Monique the divorced journalist is also likable. By the end of the book, we find why the actress wanted Monique especially.
