    In Darling Rose Gold, the story is told from dual viewpoints. We get Patty’s point of view when she gets released from jail five years later and then Rose Gold’s life after her mother went to jail five years ago. Rose was the one to testify against her mother. To be more direct I did not enjoy this book.😑 I’ve heard great things about it, so I decided to give it a try, however, the story did not turn out how I expected it along with the things I thought would make me excited to read it. Don’t get me wrong it was kind of dark and bizarre especially Rose’s life after her mom went to jail. Every now and then we kinda get thrown back into the past and learn a few things about when Rose was sick and that’s all. Also, it was obvious where things were going, and was easy to kinda guess the outcomes. However, I have to admit there’s one thing I didn’t see coming related to Adam(at the very end). I was shocked.😅 Did not think of that at all. Aside from that, the rest of the story didn’t interest me. I just read it to kinda be done with it but I’m glad I finished it otherwise I would’ve been more disappointed. I feel like there wasn’t any suspense or thrill while reading it. Overall, I was disappointed in this book, but maybe another person will like it so give it a try.

    Woah ! I had this book on my list , for a long time !. My only regret , is I did NOT get this sooner !! . This tells the story , of a mother and daughter . The book , is so twisted , and a complicated book . The plot , however fast paced , like you will Not be able to stop turning the page . You crave more , and more , of the story. You crave more , of each character point , of view . It , is told in dual point of views . It flops back and forth between the daughter Rose Gold , and (The mom who just got out of prison) Patty . Readers , also get strong flashbacks throughout the story which ties in extremely well with the multiple POVS !. Oh gosh , Stephanie did such a wonderful job with the plot that I don’t want to spoil the plot more for you .. so get the book
    .
    Next we have the characters ! It’s a very strong character driven book . Two unreliable characters that made the story even more interesting!. Both are extremely dysfunctional, and at times the story pisses you pff . But you just can’t help, but to keep on reading !
    .
    What I loved : fast paced , strong characters , interesting plot , well written and engaging!
    .
    What I didn’t love : some things were predictable , but overall I throughly enjoyed the dark story , of Rose Gold !
    .
    Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    A Rose by any other name… would probably still be abused by her mother. Holy hell you guys. For those who were fascinated with the Dee Dee Blanchard/Gypsy Rose case, this is the book for you. I was absolutely fascinated with that case, watched The Act on Hulu and also the documentary, Mommy Dead and Dearest. This book *almost* feels like the sequel to that story.. only the mother is still alive, fresh out of prison and now living with her daughter, Rose Gold, again. WHAT.

    Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy is when an illness is faked by the caregiver – typically the mother. In this case, Rose Gold has grown up, has testified against her mother, Patty, who has now served 5 years and is getting out of jail. Who is picking her up? Why Rose Gold of course. It is her mother after all. What comes next are backstories of what Rose Gold went through after her mother went to prison and also the POV of Patty, currently, trying to get back in Rose Gold’s good graces while also proving her daughter absolutely still needs her.

    This book will simultaneously fascinate and abhor you. I flew through these pages and was hooked from the very first page. I’m glad we get to see more of the aftermath of what could happen. Even when the perpetrator is caught, there are always lingering effects. I wasn’t trying to figure out where the story was going to go – I was just living it with the characters. The ending was unexpected and I absolutely loved it. Highly recommend.

    Clever in its storytelling, this novel is told from the perspectives of Rose Gold and her mother Patty. It’s no spoiler to say that the theme of munchausen by proxy lays the foundation for this tale, its focus placed on the relationship between the two characters after Patty’s release from prison.

    Rose Gold is a bit of an Eleanor Oliphant character, finding her way as an adult in a world she did not experience in the same way as other children, the result being a painful lack of social skills. More than once I wanted to reach into the pages and save her from the rejection experienced as she continually tries to forge a normal life. Authentically written, I was discomfited by her social ineptitude. I expected Patty to be a loathsome character; however, she carried more depth which incited mixed feelings as the storyline unfolded.

    It is difficult to review in detail without revealing spoilers; however this is a book that should be on everybody’s tbr list. Poignant and moving at the same time as leading the reader through a number of twists and turns, it is a stunning debut from Stephanie Wrobel.
