The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32620332-the-seven-husbands-of-evelyn-hugo?ac=1&from_search=true 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.

What we're about

Here is a book club for women in Ventura County, Santa Barbara County, Los Angeles County and pretty much as far as you are willing to drive to Ventura County! We are a group of friendly and boisterous women who love reading all types of books, having fun, and drinking an assortment of beverages. If you're in the area and looking to meet new women, make friends, talk about the newest authors you've found, etc. then check us out. We read a combination of books including Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy and Science Fiction novels, NY Times Bestsellers, Dystopian novels, and more. If there's something you want to read we're always interested to hear about it.

The Ventura area and up and down the coast can be widespread and difficult to meet people. All women are free to come down and socialize and discuss! Please let us know a bit about you and get ready to join in the fun!
