Review: Darling Rose Gold

Darling Rose Gold
2020, Berkley

Rose Gold Watts was abused by her mother Patty for most of her life. She was raised to believe that she was a very sick child, but when it was found out that her mother had Munchousen by Proxy and was sentenced to five years in prison. The story starts when her mother is released from prison and moves back in with Rose Gold.

“That’s what separates the sane from the not. Knowing madness is an option but declining to choose it.”

I really enjoyed this story overall. This is a quiet thriller with two very unlikable characters. The main conflict is does Rose Gold really forgive her mother for the abuse or is she seeking revenge. Also, Patty still believes that it was all a mistake that she was arrested and sent to prison in the first place. There were so many plot twist that were pretty obvious to me, but then there were some that totally took me off guard. The writing was engaging and this book is definitely a page turner. The ending was mind blowing but then it went into a trope that I absolutely hate.

Overall, I definitely recommend this book, even if you aren’t a fan of YA thrillers. It was a fun and quick read.
