Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel Review

Darling Rose Gold | Stephanie Wrobel | Berkley| Pub: March 17, 2020
This book was definitely a creepy, dark and twisty psychological thriller!

The story contains two POVs, Rose Gold’s and her mother Patty. My sympathy kept changing as I was reading their POVs. Both characters have many issues and are quite deranged but that’s what kept me wanting more! I had to know what would unfold.

I kept wanting to scream at the characters like WHY are you acting like this?!? But that’s what kept me engaged! Definitely expect some unpredictable twists.

This is a 4-stars for me since I will admit I was getting annoyed at Patty and Rose Gold’s shenanigans but overall original and entertaining story!

Thank you to Simon & Schuster for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair and practically lived at the hospital. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers and 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 and 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 and 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.
