Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell her story, and she chose Monique Grant to do the job. She’s now ready to narrate her story from where she began, to how she became a Hollywood Movie Icon, to her decision to leave the show business. She’s now ready to tell what happened with the 7 marriages she had. Who did she love most? Monique is ready to listen to her tale, even though she is wondering herself why, after other reputable journalists out there, did Evelyn choose her?
I gave this 4/5 rating on Goodreads. Really enjoyed the book, I can say it’s worth the hype. I’ve seen this book everywhere and thankfully got convinced into reading it.
I love Evelyn and Harry. I love how the chapters are organized per husband / timeline. Yes, I did cry on 2 scenes of this book. The story is unpredictable: after a few hours of thinking about the story prior to finishing it, after a few guesses about Monique’s role in all of this – I didn’t get it right at all!
Maybe the only factor that kept me from giving it 5 starts is Monique.. she’s too snappy, too sad. Or this is probably just because I didn’t want Evelyn’s story to be interrupted!
