When unknown magazine writer Monique Grant is sent to interview the extremely famous but reclusive ageing Hollywood star Evelyn Hugo, she finds herself in over her head. Evelyn has chosen Monique to write her memoir, but as she records the life and times of this woman, Monique becomes attached, but also curious as to why she has been given this task.
I loved this – a fast read, compelling characters, a bit flawed, but any flaws are easily overlooked. I initially found the twist at the end somewhat underwhelming, those as I considered it later and discussed it with a friend, I warmed to it more and more. I’m very excited to see it is being developed into a TV series, it feels perfect for this.
