The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine by Alex Brunkhorst

Thomas Cleary, a disgraced NY journalist, struggles to reinvent himself in L.A. as an entertainment reporter on the Hollywood beat. When assigned to write an obituary for a Tinseltown "mover and shaker", he is thrust into a group of Hollywood elite and desperate to get close to the very people that can further his career.

In the group, but not of it, Thomas knows his future depends upon remaining in the good graces of his new benefactors. That would include steering clear of the eccentric daughter of mogul David Duplaine. But there is something amiss about Matilda, and the smitten young journalist cannot stay away.

Reminiscent of The Great Gatsby, this is a story about love, power, and ambition, and the price you pay for wanting it all.
