Book Review and Giveaway: A Face in the Crowd

Imagine this. You are at the end of a long frustrating day at work and worrying about money. Then, all of a sudden, you find an envelope full of money in your bag. What would you do with it? You really need that money. This is the premise of Kerry Wilkinson’s mystery A Face in the Crowd.

More about the book below. Leave a comment below and tell me what you would do with an unexpected windfall of cash.

Lucy gets the same bus every day. Today, her journey home will change her life.

Lucy can barely afford her weekly ticket for the grimy number 24, tries to avoid eye contact, and, if she’s really lucky, she gets a seat and reads a chapter of her book. But it’s a Friday – and the bus is always crammed at the end of the week. She keeps her elbows close and clings to a pole at every juddering stop. All she wants to do is get home to her dog, Billy, the only comfort she has right now. 

When she gets off, something feels different.

An envelope stuffed with thousands of pounds is in her bag.

Is it the answer to her prayers, or the beginning of a nightmare?

Because, in the end, everything has a price.

My Review:

A woman who works in a grocery store with no one in the world but a sweet little dog is struggling to pay back a substantial debt. She finds herself the recipient of an envelope full of money that shows up in her bag after riding on a crowded bus. Who does it belong to? Should she return it? Can she spend it and cover some of her debts? Kerry Wilkinson gives us a nicely woven mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. The author takes us down some paths that seem logical, but nothing is what it seems. A Face in the Crowd will have you looking over your shoulder!

I obtained this book through Net Galley and have left an honest review.

    • I would want to but would worry someone would want their money back!

  1. I like to think I would be practical and pay bills, but I’m pretty sure I would be on the first plane to Puerto Rico.

  2. Enjoyed reading about the inspiration for cozy myseries – Agatha is a favorite!
