Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel

For eighteen years Rose Gold was told by her mother that she was ill with some disease that no one could figure out. 

Her mother, Patty, took her to many doctors and actually told the doctors what tests to try.

When a doctor got suspicious, she took Rose Gold to a different doctor.

Little did Rose Gold and the doctors know that her mother was actually poisoning her to make herself look like super mom who saved her daughter.

It all caught up with Patty one day, though, when Rose Gold figured it out, and Patty was put on trial and sent to prison.

Five years later, Patty is out of prison.  Surprisingly Rose Gold picked her up and has her stay with her.

We follow the story line as we hear about Rose Gold’s childhood, the background of her mother, and present day.

What does Rose Gold have in mind by having her mother stay there with her and especially since she now has a child of her own? 

Can she trust her mother?

Will she so easily forget what her mother did to her?

Can Patty forget so easily that her daughter sent her to prison?

Will the town forget what she did to her daughter?

The big question, though, is who is the better/biggest liar, the most dangerous, the most cunning, or the most evil?

DARLING ROSE GOLD is a tense, chilling book, but is very well written.  You won’t want to put the book down.

If you like psychological thrillers, you will enjoy DARLING ROSE GOLD.  This book was every bit a thriller as well as a read that will keep you wondering what these two characters will do next.  5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
