Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews,” Darling Rose Gold” by Stephanie Wrobel, Berkley Publishing, March 17, 2020
WOW!! Stephanie Wrobel, author of “Darling Rose Gold” has written a compelling, enthralling, engaging, captivating, intense and thought-provoking novel. The Genres for this novel are Psychological Thriller, Suspense, and Fiction. This novel reminds me of a game of chess and a gamble, with the stakes being dangerously high. Who is going to say “Checkmate”? I appreciate the way the author draws the audience in, and vividly describes the characters, events, and actions. The story takes place in the present and goes back to the past when it pertains to the characters and events. The author describes her characters as complicated, complex, dysfunctional and determined.
Rose Gold Watts has spent the first 18 years of her life on a feeding tube, in a wheel-chair, and dependent on her Mom, Patty Watts. The doctors, nurses, no one could find out what was wrong with Rose Gold Watts. It seems that Patty has been in jail for the last 5 years accused of doing many things so that Rose Gold was put in that situation. As a matter of fact, it was Rose Gold’s testimony, that sealed Patty’s fate. Now Patty is going to be released, and can you guess who will take her in?
The whole neighborhood is very surprised that Rose Gold would take her mother in. It seems Patty feels entitled to come and live with Rose Gold. Can you believe that sweet and fragile Rose Gold could be so forgiving to take the mother that caused her so much pain to live with her?
It is quite true that Rose Gold has been waiting for Patty to get out and come live with her. Actually, even well planned out. Perhaps Rose Gold isn’t the sweet and naive little girl anymore. I suggest that you sit back if you can, and watch as the action plays out. I would highly recommend this edgy, riveting and thought-provoking novel!!!
