Darling Rose Gold – Stephanie Wrobel


★★★★ ½

All these years, I’ve been telling people she was sick.
Look who was right after all.

Rose Gold spent nearly two decades of her life believing she was sick.

A chromosomal abnormality is what her mother (Patty Watts) said but what Rose Gold was actually diagnosed with was always shrouded in mystery.

That is…until her mom installed the internet and Rose Gold did a little digging for the first time in her life.

It’s Rose Gold’s fault I went to prison, but she’s not the only one to blame.

Patty was safely behind bars for five years and when she’s released, Rose Gold is there to pick her up.

The community is shocked. Absolutely shocked.

But…Rose Gold didn’t spend all that time idle.

I smiled at her, teeth exposed. About time I let her see the ugly side of Rose Gold.

After all…who could possibly suspect dearest darling Rose Gold?


Ahhh! This one was really good!

I could tell from the cover that I was going to be wholly and completely sucked into this one.

I loved the way Rose Gold and Patty circled each other, each testing out the boundaries and figuring out how life has changed in the past few years.

The two of them really carried the book. Part of me wanted more extremes (especially with the basement!) and the other part was supremely satisfied with the way it turned out.

I also was really intrigued and impressed by how well the flashbacks fit into the story.

The smoothly inserted just enough information to keep you going while withholding enough to make you read ever faster.

Right away you know the book is setting you up for a big finish and let me assure you – it did not disappoint!

“You deserve every rotten thing you got.”

With thanks to author and the publisher for a free copy in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from an uncorrected proof and are subject to change upon publication.

  1. This sounds really good. Definitely sounds inspired by the Gypsy Rose Blanchard story, which I found super fascinating. This is on my goodreads TBR list and I can’t wait to get my hands on it 🙂
