Her Name Was Rose Claire Allan #Review #BlogTour #HerNameWasRose @AvonBooksUK @ClaireAllan @Sabah_K ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This new Irish voice is bursting onto the scene with her first foray into the thriller genre. This promises to be one of the most exciting debuts of 2018. Perfect for fans of Lianne Moriarty, B. A. Paris, Gillian Flynn and Marian Keyes.
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.
Thanks so much to Sabah Khan for inviting me to be part of this blog tour. What a read that was. A new author for me, and a new author whose books I will be looking out for in the future.
What an interesting book this turned out to be. I'm not really sure if i'm honest, as to what I was expecting from this book. It sounded a little different when I read about it, yet it gave me that sense that 'I really need to read this book'.
I found myself drawn right into the book from the early pages, and when you realise what is happening, it becomes one of those books you know you can't put down until it's finished.
When Emily Witnesses a hit and run, little does she know at the time how much her life is about to change. A lady called Rose was killed in the hit and run, yet luckily her little boy Jack, Lived.
Emily seems to become obsessed with Rose's life and manages to plant herself well and truly into what was once Rose's life. Thinking things would be better for her if she became Rose. Emily is also trying to keep from anyone who actually knew Rose, that she witnessed the accident.
Emily seems to be a lost soul, losing her job, having no friends or family around her. For Emily becoming someone else seems perfect. But is it? This could be the start of things going very wrong for Emma. It soon becomes clear not everything in Rose's life was Rosy.
I like how this book covers the online profile of people, it's funny how people are trying to be something they are not via social media. Social media plays a big part in all our lives today, and I think it's sometimes thought that you have to look good to be popular, and a lot of people go over the top with on line posts.
A great read, one I think a lot of people will be talking about over the next few months. I can see this book doing very well for the author. This book has one of those ending you really were NOT expecting. I didn't see that coming at all. Brilliantly written. I felt it delivered a bit of a double whammy towards the ending, I loved how it was done.
I will certainly be looking out for more books from Claire Allan.
