50 Book Pledge Featured Read: Her Name Was Rose

“AMAZING. I read it in one go. I was totally hooked.” – MARIAN KEYES

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


When Emily lets a stranger step out of an elevator in front of her, she never imagines that this 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.

Emily, still struggling in the wake of a devastating, abusive relationship, thinks that she may have been the intended target of this fatal hit-and-run.


So she makes a decision she can never take back. Guilt-ridden Emily begins an investigation into the background of the woman who was killed, the woman who she eventually comes to know as Rose.

In looking into her life, Emily discover that Rose had a successful author husband, Cian, a young child named Jack, and a perfect home. Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. And now Rose’s husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why can’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.

This book will keep you on the EDGE OF YOUR SEAT, Savvy Readers! I got totally absorbed in this story full of addictive twists and turns. It kept me guessing all the way through. Claire Allan has written some incredibly well-developed characters with Emily and Rose.

The book stars off with a bang—the hit-and-run being in the first chapter—and doesn’t slow down until the very last page. You follow Emily in her constant state of panic and you’re taken on a serious ride. It’s impossible to know who to trust and who to believe inthis psychological thriller.

  1. I love a good psychological thriller, and this one sounds different and exciting! Going on my TBR list immediately.

  2. People’s lives can appear very different from what they actually are and I’ve read a few books about that subject lately. I wonder what Rose’s secrets are, abusive husband or hidden debt are my guesses!

  3. I’d love to read this book. This sounds like a real page-turner and those are my favourite kind of books!

  4. I have just finished reading a Series that really ended up being the same plot throughout. i am really looking for something different and exciting.

  5. ohh… have been looking for something to capture my bedtime reading – and this looks like it could just be it!

  6. This would be a fantastic book to win because I love a good psychological thriller, but even more so, I love reading about relationships and am fascinated by them. Thanks for the opportunity!

  7. I just love the concept of the book. One split second can change your life forever! Suspense books are one of my favorite types of books to read.

  8. First off my name is Rosemary so I often will be attracted to titles with “MY NAME”. Secondly, I’m fascinated by the concept of actions that lead to reactions. So if Emily had been the one to step out of the elevator vs Rose….well that would have changed the course of their history. I really want to know what happens next and can hardly wait to read this novel. I love suspense!

  9. I like a good book with plots of twists and turns you don’t see coming. It keeps intrigued and unable to put the book down until I am finished and usually wanting more. Sad that it is over.
