Are you a fan of old Hollywood, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and/or finding the perfect books to pair with your TV show? Then you’ve found the perfect post for you! I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for the first full season of The Last Tycoon and found THE PERFECT book companion to help make the wait (somewhat) manageable.

Try this!



The Last Tycoon starring Matt Bomer and Lilly Collins highlights the romance and thrills of 1930s Hollywood. Amazon  premiered the pilot over a year ago and the full season will finally available to stream on July 28th. The pilot was addicting and THAT TWIST AT THE END has kept me on my toes for over a year! We only have a month left to the release, but haven’t we waited enough?! Girl About Town by Adam Shankman and Laura L. Sullivan will bring you into old Hollywood and help you pass the time quickly. Plus, it’s a free read until July 3rd! Like The Last TycoonGirl About Town  is set in the glittering Golden Age of Hollywood and captures the charm of the era as well as the thrilling murder mystery romance. The story follows Lucille O’Malley who was living in poverty in New York until she’s thrust into Hollywood as the new It Girl, Lulu Kelly. Then enters Freddie van der Waals, the only son of a New York tycoon. When Freddie finds out how his father made his billions, he leaves New York searching for a new identity. When fate brings Lulu and Freddie together, of course, chaos and romance ensue. Also, did I mention there’s a murder and Lulu might be involved? It’s a thrilling ride you won’t want to miss!

BONUS: Murder Among The Stars, the second book in this series, is also available now.
