The story begins with a dinner party invitation… 

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 entrée 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.  

Matilda is a beautiful and mysterious young woman who has never left the lush Bel-Air estate where she was raised. Thomas is immediately entranced by the enigmatic girl, and the two begin a secret love affair. But what starts as an enchanted romance soon unravels a web of secrets and lies that could destroy their lives—and the lives of everyone around them—forever. 

A modern-day Gatsby tale filled with unforgettable characters and charm, The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine is a sparkling love letter to Los Angeles and a captivating journey beyond the golden gates of its most glamorous estates. Timeless, romantic and utterly absorbing, it is a mesmerizing tale of privilege, identity and the difficult choices we make in the pursuit of power.

My Thoughts:

This book is about a young reporter Thomas Cleary. Thomas is sent to do a story on a high profile person in the movie business that has recently passed away.

Thomas is instantly and suddenly thrust into the glitz and glamor of the high class of the business. He eventually meets and falls in love with the unattainable Matilda Duplaine.  

This book is a fun relaxing read that moves quickly and you are anxious to see what happens next.
