Her name was Rose. You watched her die. And her death has created a vacancy. 

When Emily lets a stranger step out in front of her, she never imagines that split second will change her life. But after Emily watches a car plough into the young mother – killing her instantly – she finds herself unable to move on.

And then she makes a decision she can never take back.

Because Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. A beautiful, loving family, a great job and a stunning home. And now Rose’s husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why couldn’t Emily fill that space?

But as Emily is about to discover, no one’s life is perfect … and not everything is as it seems.

Hello, my fellow friends readers and bloggers!

It’s a bright sunny day here and I hope you are having a great time. Today I am reviewing one very gripping psychological thriller, HER NAME WAS ROSE. It was published on June 28-th. I had a guest post from the author previously on this blog , and now I am sharing my review with you.

Emily never thought that one small act of kindness would turn her life upside down. Coming out from a store and walking across the street, she is kind enough to let a mother with a baby walk in front of her. Next thing she knows, a car runs over the mother right in front of her eyes.

“It should have been me. “- she thinks. Why, because Emily believes that she is the actual target. Why, because she hides from abusive boyfriend for the last few years. Somehow, it seems, he has found her again.

Trying to fix things and relieve her quilt, Emily tries to find out more about the woman who died, Rose. She finds her Facebook profile, she gets her old job place, she even meets Rose’s husband and little son. It seems that Rose had everything. Perfect husband, perfect son, perfect job, perfect house, perfect life.

So why that perfect life can’t be hers now? She has suffered enough!

While we read about Emily and her obsessive chase for the perfect life, we also read parts of Rose’s diary. It seems that the grass wasn’t greener in the neighbor’s lawn at all. Those pictures posted on Facebook profile were just that, pictures. Very different from Rose’s real life. A life much more fulfilled with fear than one Emily had.

One very grippy psychological thriller where the author clearly shows that all that glitters is not gold. Not everything we see online is true. One layer after another, the author reveals the truth behind the walls and closed door. Perfect for fans of B.A.Paris. One hell of a read.
