I loved this book! I had a hard time putting it down and wish I could have dinner with Evelyn Hugo. If you’re looking for some weekend entertainment, I highly recommend finding a comfortable spot to sit with Evelyn and a glass of Jezebel white wine.
In The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Taylor Jenkins Reid brilliantly created interesting and real humans, people you like and respect not in spite of their flaws, but because of them. Chapter by chapter, husband by husband, the real Evelyn Hugo–the person behind the legend–becomes clearer, like the slow reveal of a retracting theater curtain that you can’t wait to see behind. Add in the glamour of the Hollywood film industry from the 50’s through the 80’s, and Evelyn’s story becomes as irresistible as she is.
I suggest pairing Evelyn’s remarkable story with Jezebel Blanc wine. From the Willful Wine Company, Jezebel Blanc is a crisp aromatic blend out of Oregon. Golden in color, this light and slightly sweet wine is a summer go-to. It’s also reasonably priced at about $15/bottle and is rated 89-90 pts according to Wine Enthusiast.
Enjoy and happy reading!
