    Good read!

    I enjoyed this quick, easy, very suspenseful read! Lucy is struggling to make ends meet after boyfriend Ben tragically dies in a train crash after which she discovers he took out many loans in her name. Lucy lives in a cheap apartment building with an odd assortment of neighbors who add lots of character to the story. On her bus ride home one day, Lucy discovers someone has placed an envelope with a lot of money into her purse. From there, the book takes on many twist and turns culminating in a very surprising ending. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this very good book in exchange for an honest review.

    Great psychological thriller

    4.5 stars A Face in the Crowd by Kerry Wilkinson is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) It’s been 5 years since Lucy’s fiancé and his brother were killed in a train crash. The loss of Ben turned her world upside down. She went from a good job with a good future, to complete ruin when it was discovered that Ben, in his job as a day trader, not only threw his own money away, but all of hers, leaving Lucy deep in debt. Lucy has been living in a one-room flat, in a not-so-great area of town, working in a grocery store, and just barely making ends meet. She often goes without meals, and her shoes are falling apart. But for all that, she has some good days, a good friend next door, and a wonderful companion in Billy, a dog she rescued, and who usually eats better than she does. One Friday on a very crowded bus ride home from work, someone puts an envelope of cash in her purse. She knows she should do the right thing and turn it in to the police, but it’s hard. She really needs this money. Between wrestling with her conscience over the money, going to another memorial for her dead fiancé, trying the dating scene for the first time in 5 years, and wondering about her new neighbour, now Lucy thinks she has a stalker. Strange things are happening. My Opinions: Kerry Wilkinson has become one of my favorite authors. One of those authors who I know will provide me with a fast, entertaining read. His books always send me in a direction I don’t see coming. This one was no different. Although I had some suspicions that turned out to be true, there were enough twists to keep me interested and turning those pages. I loved the characters, all of whom had enough depth to feel real, and I loved Billy. As an animal lover, I rarely read books or watch television programs containing one. My fear for their well-being is much greater than my fear for the well-being of a human, so I was a little nervous throughout the book….. Anyway, great plot, great writing, and overall, great entertainment.

    A great read

    Someone drops several thousand pounds into your bag what would you do? Down on her luck, Lucy is faced with this decision when she finds money in her bag after getting off the bus coming home from work. After the death of her partner Ben in a train crash, the comfortable life she once lead has vanished. When details of Ben’s financial status reveal that they have no savings to speak of as well as a number of loans that need to be paid back that Ben took out in Lucy’s name without her knowledge, she is now virtually penniless working as a cashier in a supermarket living pay check to pay check to pay off these loans. But Lucy struggles with her conscious knowing that the right thing to do would be to hand the money in to the police, but the thought of being able to pay off some of her debt would just be too good an opportunity to pass up….wouldn’t it? This is a quick easy read, with an intriguing storyline that kept my interest throughout. A thought provoking thriller, that makes you question your own morales and got me thinking what would I do if I found myself in this situation. I now plead the 5th so I don’t have to answer this..! In terms of the characters in this story, whilst only a few, they are well developed and well written. We of course have main character Lucy, who immediately had my sympathy for her situation and what she was going through, her loyal dog Billie who I adored, her best friend Karen, who lives in the same building and who also won huge points with me on her music choices (I am a MASSIVE Kylie Minogue fan!), Harry a potential love interest who Lucy connected with via a dating service, Lauren, Lucy’s landlord although not a major character in the story but still worth a mention, Mark another resident who is completely unlikable and Jade who also lived in the building and is a subplot to this story after she has mysteriously disappeared without a word. The setting of the book in a run down apartment building and not in the best of neighbourhoods, had a dreary atmosphere to it which set the tone of the story perfectly. I could always envision a dark cloud hanging over Lucy all of the time while she tried to make ends meet and get through each day. Although I had a feeling about half way through how the story was going to unravel, I still found this an enjoyable read, that had the right amount of suspense in the lead up to the finale. This is the first book I have read of Kerry’s. Having only started my blog earlier this year, I have been exposed to some wonderful authors that I may never have heard of if I hadn’t started doing this. I am happy to say that I am glad that Kerry is one of these authors. A great storyteller in the psychological thriller genre and I look forward to reading more of Kerry’s work. Do I recommend this book: Absolutely! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank-you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for allowing me to read an advanced copy of A Face in the Crowd in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and are biased in any way.

    Great

    A Face in the Crowd is a new book by Kerry Wilkinson which I eagerly started reading two days ago. The story evolves around Lucy and her dog Billy establishing a life after a train accident takes her partner Ben away from her. Unfortunately, Lucy also discovered that Ben had numerous debts in her name and she is now living from day to day with a paycheck that allows only for survival but no extras. Things take an unexpected turn as in all Kerry Wilkinson’s books and the end result is surprising. The dig at President Trump was totally unnecessary! It is a very well written book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It started lagging a bit towards the end but still worth reading. I have read better books by this author and am going to continue reading his books. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for letting me read this book in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I will definitely recommend this book and happily give it 4 stars.

    loved it

    I have to admit that the first couple of chapters of this novel had me thinking about not continuing. At first, Lucy comes across as a "poor me" type, she has no money, no friends, no social life to speak of and a minimum wage job that barely pays her bills. I continued though, and am so glad that I did! The story picks up after Lucy finds an envelope full of money in her bag when she gets off her usual bus. She has no idea how it got there and she has every intention of turning it in to the police. But...her laptop breaks and she needs it for school, her running shoes fall apart and her dog needs vet care. Lucy is a normal person, she knows she shouldn't spend the money but it's RIGHT THERE! Then little things start happening that raise her suspicions and kind of scare her, a man in a coat seems to be following her, an internet date doesn't seem to be who he says he is, her favourite song is playing all of the time in the apartment across from hers. I literally could not stop reading this book after the first couple of chapters. I loved Lucy and her dog, Billy. I had to find out what was going on and I had to know where the money came from. I would definitely recommend this book to others, it's a quick, suspenseful read...
