    This book just didn t sit right with me, guys In fact, theI think about it, theI really didn t like what seems to be the message I m not going to get all finger waggy about it If you enjoyed this and found it a compelling thriller, then I am glad I just personally couldn t get on board with the narrative being sold here A lot of my major issues are going to be under spoiler tags Darling Rose Gold is based on the true story of Dee Dee Blanchard and Gypsy Rose In this book, Ro This book just didn t sit right with me, guys In fact, theI think about it, theI really didn t like what seems to be the message I m not going to get all finger waggy about it If you enjoyed this and found it a compelling thriller, then I am glad I just personally couldn t get on board with the narrative being sold here A lot of my major issues are going to be under spoiler tags Darling Rose Gold is based on the true story of Dee Dee Blanchard and Gypsy Rose In this book, Rose Gold Watts believed herself to be seriously ill for the first eighteen years of her life However, it turns out her mother had actually been poisoning her for years, seekingandmedical diagnoses, and taking money from well meaning strangers Patty Watts was finally caught, convicted, and sent to prison for five years.Now she s getting out and, to everyone s surprise, Rose Gold has agreed to have her back She welcomes Patty into the home she has bought and even lets her look after her newborn baby This all seems a bit suspect, of course Even Patty herself thinks so What is Rose Gold up to Is she planning some payback Or is she really ready to put the past behind her Lots of reviews have revealed the essence of the story, but the book treats it as a spoiler so I will tag it view spoiler this is a revenge story It is about Rose Gold punishing Patty for destroying her body and her life hide spoiler What we do know is that neither Patty nor Rose Gold is particularly likable Rose Gold might be a victim but she is definitely not the sweet, innocent kid Patty left behind.So, what s my problem Well, I know there s a lot of debate on this issue I ve read a few fiction books with Munchausen s aka Factitious Disorder and have done a fair bit of outside reading on it Munchausen s itself is recognized as a mental disorder Munchausen s by proxy, as of my writing this, is not It is also not granted a medico legal entity it cannot be used as legal defence Clearly, this is because a MBP does not cause the individual to suffer themselves, and b there is a fine line in these cases between mental illness and child abuse People understandably do not like to make excuses for those who abuse children.A person with Munchausen s is sent to get psychiatric help A person with MBP is generally sent to prison I do not know if this is right or wrong I do know that statistically those with MBP were often victims of child abuse themselves, which to me suggests it is trauma related And so it just didn t sit right with me when view spoiler this became a story about punishing Patty Rose Gold buys the house where Patty grew up because she knows it will upset her This was the house where she was abused and where she found her brother after he hanged himself Then Rose sets up a number of scenarios to deliberately traumatize her mother before eventually framing her and sending her back to prison, presumably for much longer this time And I m just not sure what the author wanted us to take from this Patty is clearly portrayed as a deeply troubled person whose childhood abuse has affected her whole life Sure, let s say she deserved prison for harming her daughter, mental illness or no, but are we really supposed to rejoice in seeing her bullied, frightened and sent back to prison for something she didn t do Revenge stories can indeed be fun when it feels like just desserts, but this one felt extremely distasteful Knowing what we know about Patty, I didn t feel like I was enjoying the downfall of a child abuser I felt like I was watching a mentally ill woman being punished again and again hide spoiler I got no pleasure or satisfaction from the way this book ended I felt let down I felt a little nauseous, honestly I have given it an extra star for holding my attention throughout, but the whole thing felt misguided.Facebook Instagram

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 isuntil 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.ButRose 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 allwho 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 wantedextremes 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 disappointYou deserve every rotten thing you gotWith 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 publicationYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads

    Mother vs Daughter Crazy vs Crazier Who will win in the end Darling Rose Gold is a psychological thriller about an extremely dark and twisted mother daughter relationship5 years ago, 23 year old Rose Gold Watt s mother, Patty, was convicted for aggravated child abuse Patty, who has Munchausen by Proxy, abused her daughter for years Under her mother s care, Rose Gold became violently ill, suffering from malnutrition and a host of other ailments as a result of her mother s abuse Patty Mother vs Daughter Crazy vs Crazier Who will win in the end Darling Rose Gold is a psychological thriller about an extremely dark and twisted mother daughter relationship5 years ago, 23 year old Rose Gold Watt s mother, Patty, was convicted for aggravated child abuse Patty, who has Munchausen by Proxy, abused her daughter for years Under her mother s care, Rose Gold became violently ill, suffering from malnutrition and a host of other ailments as a result of her mother s abuse Patty served 5 years in prison, and with her release date looming, Rose Gold wants to reconcile However, Rose Gold s suffering has taken its toll While she has recovered physically, mentally she is far from healed Mother and daughter seem to try to repair their relationship, but underneath the surface of their reconciliation, they are playing an underhanded game of cat and mouse which results in pure insanity I found the subject matter of this book to be fascinating I couldn t put it down It is fast paced, entertaining, and easy to read Split between Patty and Rose Gold s POV s, two sick minds reveal the motives and the consequences of abuse Both are unreliable narrators and both are unlikable and deranged in their own unique ways I found their voices to be flat and cold, and while this type of narrative style might not work in another book, it works in this one Both Rose Gold and Patty are nonchalant about their actions, which made them evenfascinating to read about They do some crazy things, don t think about them, and then move onto their next act of insanity I highly recommend for those who are looking for a good dose of craziness I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Most people don t like holding on to anger They feel it crushing and consuming them, so they let it go They try to forget the ways they ve been wronged But some of us cannot forget and will never forgive We keep our axes sharp, ready to grind We hold pleas for mercy between our teeth like jawbreakers They say a grudge is a heavy thing to carry Good thing we re extra strong Saddle up and buckle in folks, we have a new popcorn thriller on the horizon True, this book isn t released in theMost people don t like holding on to anger They feel it crushing and consuming them, so they let it go They try to forget the ways they ve been wronged But some of us cannot forget and will never forgive We keep our axes sharp, ready to grind We hold pleas for mercy between our teeth like jawbreakers They say a grudge is a heavy thing to carry Good thing we re extra strong Saddle up and buckle in folks, we have a new popcorn thriller on the horizon True, this book isn t released in the US until March of 2020, but when approached with the opportunity to read an early copy of a novel that sounds suspiciously like a fictionalized account of the DeeDee Blanchard and Gypsy Rose story, what s a girl to do I had the pleasure of buddy reading this one with Dennis of scaredstraightreads , and we re both proud to announce that we fully endorse reading this book Darling Rose Gold is less of a mystery andclaustrophobic psychological suspense, which I found myself surprisingly grateful for If you read the synopsis for this book, then you probably have an inkling of the epic flaming drama that will ensue at the end, but the beauty of this tale is basking in the satisfying conclusion of revenge We know from the beginning that Patty Watts has concluded her 5 year sentence after being convicted of poisoning her daughter Rose Gold for the majority of her life, and that RG has seemingly forgiven her mother and decided to take her back in upon her prison release What we don t know are all of the things that have happened in those 5 years that Patty and RG have been apart, as well as Patty s horrific upbringing and childhood secrets These things unfold in dual perspectives, flipping flawlessly between past and present.If you re looking for a fast paced and engrossing tale of suspense that s sole job is to provide the entertainment factor, look no further Seriously, Darling Rose Gold is the type of breezy read that, given the time, a reader could complete in a single sitting While I found most of the outcomes fairly predictable, mainly due to the nature of this type of story, it didn t inhibit my enjoyment factor in the slightest Whether you are lounging on the beach or curled up next to the fireplace with a cuppa, Darling Rose Gold is the type of read that will be enjoyed regardless of the seasonMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

    i want to preface this with saying my reading standards are so much higher for mysteries thrillers than for other genres it takes A LOT to really surprise and thrill me, so books have to work hard to get a 5 star rating review from me and although i didnt find this to be an intense page turner, i do think the story has its merits i think the concept is phenomenally creative its a little bit sad, a little bit weird, and a whole of crazy i just dont think this is set up in the most effective i want to preface this with saying my reading standards are so much higher for mysteries thrillers than for other genres it takes A LOT to really surprise and thrill me, so books have to work hard to get a 5 star rating review from me and although i didnt find this to be an intense page turner, i do think the story has its merits i think the concept is phenomenally creative its a little bit sad, a little bit weird, and a whole of crazy i just dont think this is set up in the most effective way it begins exactly where the synopsis leaves off RGs mom is released from being imprisoned for making her daughter sick for years the problem is, the reader isnt given first hand exposure to the mothers actions its presented as a history between the two characters i would have LOVED for this to be split into two sections with part one being RG growing up sick, the reader doesnt know why, and then finally discovering the mom was behind it the entire time and then leave part two for after the mom is released from prison i think that would have been muchfun as a reader to discover the mystery behind the illness rather than what RG has in store for her mother upon her release if that makes sense i am probably ranting at this point im not a writer what do i know lol regardless, this is a cool concept and definitely had potential, but didnt quite impress me as much i would have liked 3 stars
