Fresh Fiction Review

Her Name Was Rose

Reviewed by Teresa Cross

Thriller Psychological

This psychological thriller will have you thinking twice about what you wish for... Things are not always as rosy as we think. HER NAME WAS ROSE by Claire Allan is a page turner that you will have a hard time forgetting. A woman witnesses another woman die, and it changes her life forever.

Emily lets a stranger who was pushing her toddler in a stroller walk out in front of her to cross the street when the stranger is hit by a car and dies. Emily helplessly watches the horrible scene. There was nothing she could and she cannot get it out of her mind. She obsesses over the dead woman, Rose, so much so that she checks out everything she can about her. Rose seemed to live a fairytale life and had everything. Emily becomes so preoccupied with Rose that she starts to move her way into the life that Rose left behind...

What an amazing storyline that did not end the way I would have thought. Very well written with lots of surprises. Claire Allan has a remarkable novel here that has all the elements of a great thriller! HER NAME WAS ROSE starts out catching your attention and holds it until the end. I couldn't wait to get home to read it every afternoon. I most certainly would recommend this psychological thriller to anyone who loves a great mystery.

Learn more about Her Name Was Rose


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.
