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 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!
