The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine

The Gilded Life of Matilda Duplaine - Alex Brunkhorst

Author: Alex Brunkhorst

Rating: 3 stars


A well written love story whose premise borders on ridiculous. Thomas falls in love with a girl who's never left her rich father's  estate cuz yà know,  BIG SECRET.


I was bored at times, but couldn't DNF it cuz I really enjoyed the writing.


Predictable, but it made me want  to keep an eye out for Brunkhorst's other work.
