Wow .. this is an intense and absorbing read! Rose Gold was a poorly child; her mother gave up everything to care for her. At least, that's what both Rose Gold and the rest of the world believed until her mom was sent to jail for poisoning her . . . This is a really well written book which starts off as a nice, gentle read as we follow the stories of both Rose Gold and her mother, Patty Watts. Told in a clear and concise manner, it's a substantive read which really grabbed my attention from the off. What happened when Patty had served her sentence surprised me but the best was yet to come. A stunning read, cleverly plotted and slowly revealing, this held my attention to the very end - when I realised my mouth was gaping! If you are a reader who enjoys a psychological thriller, then this is a novel you really must add to you reading list. Quite awesome, and no less than five sparkling stars will do for such a highly original story!

Revenge drama A relationship drama between mother and daughter. Both are out to exact revenge on one another but who will succeed? An intricately woven story about poisoned familial relationships, and the desperate need to be loved and belong. Deliciously dark, not predictable, page turner.
