NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“If youre looking for a book to take on holiday this summer, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has got all the glitz and glamour to make it a perfect beach read.” —Bustle

From the New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & the Six—an entrancing and “wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet” (PopSugar) as she reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.

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.

“Heartbreaking, yet beautiful” (Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is “Tinseltown drama at its finest” (Redbook): a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it costs—to face the truth.

    So much more than an insight into female love. It’s an insight into the way we think about ourselves and justify the ways we move through life.

    it was hard to put down, you get pulled into the pages by Hugo herself. She just feels so real. Such a complex character, I find it hard to dislike her regardless of what she does.
  • Pulls you in!

    I started reading this book back in January/February. It started to get slow and I started school, so I stopped reading it for a few months. I’m SO glad I picked it back up at the end of my semester. Evelyn’s story is so twisted that you forget for a while that she’s telling the story to Monique. Out of her seven husbands, Harry will always be my favorite. The twists in the last 50 pages had my jaw dropped and eyes watering. Great book, easy to read within a few days, I’d recommend to anyone who doesn’t like all that sappy romance stuff.

    I hated this book. It’s unsatisfying and predictable. It doesn’t feel original in anyway.

    The first two chapters I wasn’t sure if I would read this book, it was hard to get into. After the first two chapters I was absolutely hooked. This book is very interesting and complex and hard to put down!
