Thank you so much @BerkleyPub (#partner) for gifting me “Darling Rose Gold” by Stephanie Wrobel!
.
“Sharp Objects” meets “My Lovely Wife” in this tightly drawn debut that peels back the layers of the most complicated of mother-daughter relationships…
.
For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair & practically lived at the hospital. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers & offering shoulders to cry on, but no matter how many doctors, tests, or surgeries, no one could figure out what was wrong with Rose Gold.
.
Turns out her mom, Patty Watts, was just a really good liar.
.
After serving five years in prison, Patty gets out with nowhere to go & begs her daughter to take her in. The entire community is shocked when Rose Gold says yes.
.
Patty insists all she wants is to reconcile their differences. She says she’s forgiven Rose Gold for turning her in & testifying against her. But Rose Gold knows her mother. Patty Watts always settles a score.
.
Unfortunately for Patty, Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling…
And she’s waited such a long time for her mother to come home.

The US/Canada cover

This book will blow your mind! It is such an insane, utterly exhilarating thrill ride, you won’t be able to put it down! And the cover is GORGEOUS!
.
Munchausen Syndrome is such a fascinating, albeit frightening, mental disorder, & of course we have all heard of the most famous case of DeeDee Blanchard & Gypsy Rose. This book had the DDB/GR feel, but also some “Carrie” vibes.
.
Dark, intense, psychological suspense that will have you flying through the pages, “Darling Rose Gold” is an A+ debut novel & available 3/17.

And don’t forget, you can get this book on audio as well & support independent book stores by purchasing your audiobooks through Libro.fm. Click HERE for the book & use my referral code MOMLOVESREADING to get a 3-for-1 audiobook deal. I LOVE listening to suspense/thrillers on audio!

Stay safe out there everyone! I’ve been practicing social distancing & avoidance of large gatherings for YEARS, so I think I’ll do just fine!😉
