I've been looking for a new novel to read while hitting the beach this summer, and I think I've found the perfect book! The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid has got glitz and glamour that will make it a perfect beach read. It's described as heartbreaking, yet beautiful. It has excellent reviews and seems like it will be a Tinseltown drama at its finest!
As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel is:
"Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon 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 is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?
Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.
Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways."
