Book CoverAbout the Book:

"A whirlwind…A truly wonderful read."

—Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Spectacular

Historical fiction based on a real woman from history, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo meets the Victorian era with a dash of The Haunting of Hill House in THE THIRTEENTH HUSBAND, a scandalous tell-all narrated by the glamorous Aimee Crocker. The novel details everything from her mischievous days in German finishing school to dinners with Hawaiian royalty to lavish Astor parties in Manhattan, but behind Aimee’s public notoriety, there’s private pain.

When Aimee is ten years old, as the night dips into the witching hour, the Woman in White appears to her. Minutes later, Aimee’s father is dead—and Aimee inherits a fortune. But the Woman in White never really leaves Aimee, appearing as a sinister specter before every tragedy in her life. Despite Aimee’s wealth, her cross-continental travels, and her increasingly shocking progression through husbands, Aimee is haunted by the unidentifiable Woman’s mysterious motivations.   

With immersive, effervescent writing and a protagonist who will capture the hearts of book clubs and Booktokers alike, THE THIRTEENTH HUSBAND is a powerful whirlwind of a novel about a woman followed by scandal and heartbreak yet living her life without shame, appreciating its little miracles and seizing the peace that comes only after a life lived without regret. 

"Utterly gripping." — Marie Benedict, New York Times bestselling author of The Mystery of Mrs. Christie

“Compulsively readable historical fiction!" — Kerri Maher, USA Today bestselling author of The Paris Bookseller

"Resplendent with extravagance, magic, and yearning." — Noelle Salazar, USA Today bestselling author of The Flight Girls
