A brand new story from Gillian Godden!
A new life…
With their wretched life in Liverpool behind them, Julie and Ralph Gold head to London for their next big break. Julie’s had enough of slumming it, she’s ready to quit their life of crime and go legit.
The same old game…
But it seems their reputation had beat them to it, and the underworld is already bubbling with news of the their arrival. And as much as Julie tries to go straight, the more people underestimate them and treat them like fools. And there is only so much Julie can take…
One last trick.
So when they are offered one final big job, Julie knows they should say no. It’s risky and could cost them everything they have. But it could also be their last chance to make it big.
And when fools rush in, the Golds take the spoils.
Read what happens next for Julie and Ralph Gold in another gripping story by Gillian Godden.
Gold Digger, the first in this series of books about Julie and Ralph has been one of my favourite reads of 2021, so I was so excited when I was invited on to the blog tour for Fool’s Gold and I wasn’t disappointed.
Fool’s Gold continues where Gold Digger ended but can be totally read as a stand-alone novel.
Fool’s Gold is a gritty rollercoaster of a read, I was pulled into the gangland underworld and loved every minute. I very quickly became reacquainted with the characters from the first book who all play the part in making this book one that was hard to put down.
I love the contrast of the Julie and Ralph who take part in the dodgy dealings of the Italian mob who Ralph works for to the Julie and Ralph behind closed doors. They both have a vulnerable side and compliment each other perfectly. Gillian creates her characters so well that it’s almost like watching them on a big screen.
I’m looking forward to the next instalment of The Gold’s.
Thank you to Gillian and Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me onto this blogtour.
