The USA Today bestseller 'AMAZING. I read it in one go. I was totally hooked.' MARIAN KEYES 'Utterly addictive. Compulsive, twisty, tense.' CLAIRE DOUGLAS, author of Local Girl Missing 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. 'A powerful and emotional psychological thriller that will keep you guessing and leave you breathless.' C. L. TAYLOR, author of The Fear 'I devoured it in a couple of days. Claire Allan managed to maintain an unsettling sense of unease that started at the very beginning and didn't let up at all.' ELLE CROFT, author of The Guilty Wife 'A psychological thriller with a heart: taut, emotionally challenging and unlike so many thrillers, each twist and turn is here because it deserves to be and not for the sake of it.' JOHN MARRS, author of THE ONE… (més)

I enjoyed this story although it took me a while to become engaged. Emily was a damaged young lady and sometimes I wanted to give her a good shake. Worth reading. ( )

If you're looking for a good scary end of summer read, this book is for you. "Her Name Was Rose" follows a woman named Emily, who has just witnessed a particularly gruesome hit and run. The woman, who was walking with her baby, dies on the scene, and she's left with a haunting image. She leaves before the police get there.

From the very opening of Her Name Was Rose, Claire Allen immediately catapults her readers into the action when the narrator, Emily, narrowly escapes becoming a victim of a hit and run accident. She suspects that this was no accident, and that she was supposed to be the intended target- not the young mother whose life Emily witnesses being torn out right before her eyes. It is also immediately apparent that she is woman who has been destabilized and damaged by some past trauma. Stricken with guilt, Emily tries to discover as much as she can about Rose, the woman who she feels took her place. She scours social media for details about Rose and her family, even going so far as to attend her funeral. What she sees leads her to covet the life led by the deceased, and she attempts to learn more by applying to replace Rose at her workplace. Emily insinuates herself there by acting as a supportive friend to the grieving people she meets, and eventually as a shoulder to cry on for Rose’s famous husband. As the novel progresses, Allen slowly unfolds Emily’s history, creating questions about her main character’s reliability and state of mind. Emily, desperate for a sense of identity and connection, makes increasingly bad choices that soon place her in the crosshairs of a killer. The reader has no recourse but to rely on Emily’s point-of-view, despite sensing that she might be deluded and have a skewed perspective about what is happening around her. This book was a great quick read, fast-paced with some nice twists, and would appeal to mystery fans of Girl on a Train (Paula Hawkins) or Big Little Lies (Liane Moriarty). ( )

Her Name Was Rose is one of those big books of the summer. I keep seeing it everywhere on social media. And it's a really great read.

Emily is damaged from a previous relationship with a man, so when she sees Rose Grahame knocked over and killed in front of her it hits her hard, especially given that she let Rose go ahead of her. Should it have been Emily whose life was snuffed out in the blink of an eye instead?

Emily becomes obsessed with Rose, with looking at the outpouring of grief on her social media channels, and she has an awareness of Rose's husband, Cian, and young son, Jack. I love the idea of Emily feeling that Rose's death left a vacancy. But it's not simply a case of stepping into Rose's shoes. Is Rose's life what Emily really wants or needs? I feel that what I'm writing is putting Emily across as conniving, making it sound as though she sets out to simply take over where Rose left off, but she's really not. She's just mixed up, messed up and lonely, looking for happiness. I liked Emily and wanted that happiness for her.

I thought this book was a slow burner at first, setting the scene and introducing all the characters, mostly people that Rose knew. And then it really got into its stride and had me hooked, watching from afar whilst Emily got more and more involved in Rose's old life. I read in semi-horror, thinking that things surely couldn't be that simple. Well, you'll need to read for yourself to find out whether Emily's involvement in Rose's old life was to her advantage or not.

I thought there was a great turn of events towards the end, totally unexpected and really well done. And the ending itself was perfect, I couldn't have asked for more. Her Name is Rose is an accomplished, believable and intense psychological thriller and I enjoyed reading it very much. ( )

Emily is recovering from a bad break-up and breakdown that occurred a few years ago. She witnesses a hit and run that kills another woman, Rose. Roses’s life appears to have been perfect - handsome & successful husband, beautiful son, showplace home, & a job she enjoys with nice coworkers. Emily wants what Rose had. Correction: Emily wants what she thinks Rose had. But, of course, social media appearances are not always accurate. Good twist near the end. ( )
