Cori’s Pick: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Summer read alert! If you are like me and choose to read lakeside (or beachside, or poolside, etc.) this is the perfect book to tote along. It seems author Taylor Jenkins Reid has become a reliable ‘summer read’ source for me. If you enjoy this book, check out Reid’s July 2015 book, Maybe in Another Life.
Having been reclusive towards the end of her career, former Hollywood bombshell, Evelyn Hugo finally decides it’s time to share her glamorous and scandalous life story. When she chooses a seemingly unknown and random reporter, Monique Grant, for the job – no one is more surprised than Monique herself. Summoned to her luxurious East Side apartment, Evelyn walks Monique through each of her seven marriages and in doing so, she learns that the starlet has reasons (sometimes other than true love) to marry each of them. Along the way, Evelyn reveals a secret that risked her career and her happiness. And when Evelyn shares her very last kept secret with Monique, it is clear why their lives had to intersect…for a second time.
