"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. Neighbors did all they could, holding fundraisers and offering shoulders to cry on, but no matter how many doctors, tests, or surgeries, no one could figure out what was wrong with Rose Gold. Turns out her mom, Patty Watts, was just a really good liar. After serving five years in prison, Patty gets out with nowhere to go and begs her daughter to take her in. The entire community is shocked when Rose Gold says yes. Patty insists all she wants is to reconcile their differences. She says she's forgiven Rose Gold for turning her in and testifying against her. But Rose Gold knows her mother. Patty Watts always settles a score. Unfortunately for Patty, Rose Gold is no longer her weak little darling... And she's waited such a long time for her mother to come home."--

One of the most compelling books I've read this year. I couldn't put it down! I loved how I didn't know in which direction the story would go... and then it spun off on a really crazy path!

I don't normally pick up psychological thrillers (because they're too scary!) but I judged this book by its cover. Let's be honest, the cover is awesome. So I picked it up, not knowing what it was, and started reading the first couple of pages--and then I couldn't stop! I had to know what happened. This is a really great debut, with writing that pulls you in and plotting that drops just enough clues to keep you guessing. Perfect for fans of domestic thrillers like Gillian Flynn , B. A. Paris, and J. T. Ellison.

Again, not my normal pick, but I have to admit it's well done. I find it especially compelling that the author heavily based the details of the characters' back stories on real survivors of Munchhausen's by Proxy syndrome, and she credits their memoirs in her author's note at the back. Her research shows in the believability of the characters.
