Darling Rose Gold

The Recovery of Rose Gold
Published: NaN/NaN/NaN
Sharp Objects meets My Lovely Wife in this tightly drawn debut that peels back the layers of the most complicated of mother-daughter relationships... For the first eighteen years of her life, Rose Gold Watts believed she was seriously ill. She was allergic to everything, used a wheelchair and practically lived at the hospital.

Darling Rose Gold

Truth be told, I know the Gypsy Rose Blanchard case like the back of my hand. So, when I read the synopsis of this book, I thought this must be a rip off of the case & I’m not sure I’m interested.

Wrobel does a really great job of handling so many pieces of the case. True crime aficionados will eat it up. Like the teeth – can we talk about the teeth?

For me, Darling Rose Gold is like a what-if scenario for the Gypsy Rose Blanchard case. What if the mom is alive & getting out of jail? What in the world would have happened after she gets out of jail? If given the chance, what kind of relationship would the mother & daughter have?


I am Really Into This book. Wrobel goes down the rabbit hole of answering these questions and Darling Rose Gold is such a tense & believe take on the story. I highly recommend this one to anyone familiar with the case & anyone looking for an escape.

If you’re looking for thrilling reads, check out Unsub by Meg Gardiner & Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter. They are both super dark, tense & murder.
