Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Gold Digger by Gillian Godden. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review.
And blonde bombshell Julie isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants. With her mother locked up for murder, all Julie cares about is protecting her younger sister, Frankie. But penniless and alone on the streets of Liverpool, Julie realises that there’s only one sure fire way to make cash fast – the oldest trade.
The men mean nothing to Julie, until she meets Ralph Goldstein, an ex-con who’ll do whatever it takes to make his way to top. And the only man Julie can trust.
Separately, Ralph and Julie’s lives are filled with risk and danger. But when they meet, their blend of personality and ambition could be the best thing that ever happened … or the worst.
Will their pasts be their downfall, or will they make it big…together?
A brilliantly dark and gritty story about one woman’s fight for survival. Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Caz Finlay and Heather Atkinson.
This book has previously published as GOLD
Gold Digger by Gillian Godden is a gritty gangland novel about a woman who will go to extraordinary lengths for her survival. This is my first read by this author, and it certainly won’t be my last, because wow!
Julie is quite an intriguing character. A “blonde bombshell” who isn’t afraid to ask for what she wants, and she’s figured out a way to use her appearance to get the money she needs. She doesn’t trust anyone until Ralph. And when they meet, their lives are filled with risk and danger. Their personalities combined create a very interesting dynamic.
I don’t read a ton of gangland, but when I do, this is the kind of story I hope to find. Gold Digger surpassed my expectations and deserves more than five stars. From page one, I couldn’t put it down, and it is a thrilling read.
