The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine - Alex Brunkhorst

A modern-day Gatsby tale of forbidden love, family secrets and the true price of wealth. When young journalist Thomas Cleary is sent to dig up quotes for the obituary of a legendary film producer, the man's eccentric daughter offers him entry into the exclusive upper echelons of Hollywood society. A small-town boy with working-class roots, Thomas is a stranger in this opulent world of private jets and sprawling mansions. Then he meets Matilda Duplaine.


This is a book that I would love turned into a movie! It has mystery, intrigue, romance, glamour and offers a Gatsby feel in a contemporary modern day setting. 


"Someday, when I die, and you're looking for me, you'll be able to see me in the middle star. The buckle. That's where Ill be hanging out."  ... "And someday, the way distant future, if I die before you, you'll be happy I said it, because someday you'll know exactly where to find me. I'll be twinkling for you."


I received a free ARC of this book via NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
