Reader Notes: a mini review
2020 reads, book 3: Darling Rose Gold, Stephanie Wrobel’s debut novel.
Releases March 17, 2020.
Dark. Gripping. Sharp. 5/5 stars.
I don’t usually go for psychological thriller type books but I picked this ARC up at my library, and oh. my. word. I read the last third of the book in an hour yesterday afternoon which had orginally been planned for a nap, but I started reading and couldn’t put it down until I got to the end and figured out what was going on.
Wrobel’s story telling is incredible. She flawlessly captures the flawed nature of humanity. She peels back the layers of human relationships and human behaviours and makes no conclusions, merely lays the pieces before you. She made me think with this book; I had a ‘book hangover’ for the first time in a while with this one.
