Sir Phillip knew that Eloise Bridgerton was a spinster, and so he'd proposed, figuring that she'd be homely and unassuming, and more than a little desperate for an offer of marriage. Except . . . she wasn't. The beautiful woman on his doorstep was anything but quiet, and when she stopped talking long enough to close her mouth, all he wanted to do was kiss her . . . and more. Did he think she was mad? Eloise Bridgerton couldn't marry a man she had never met! But then she started thinking . . . and wondering . . . and before she knew it, she was in a hired carriage in the middle of the night, on her way to meet the man she hoped might be her perfect match. Except . . . he wasn't. Her perfect husband wouldn't be so moody and ill-mannered, and while Phillip was certainly handsome, he was a large brute of a man, rough and rugged, and totally unlike the London gentlemen vying for her hand. But when he smiled . . . and when he kissed her . . . the rest of the world simply fell away, and she couldn't help but wonder . . . could this imperfect man be perfect for her?

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. A compulsive read that will have you absolutely hooked and reading late into the night. Read what everyone is saying about A Face in the Crowd: 'I was totally gripped. It only took me a few hours to read this cover to cover and I barely put it down… I loved the writing style and will definitely read more by this author.’ Goodreads Reviewer 'A novel of spine-tingling suspense that had me hooked from the very first paragraph. A delicious sense of unease settles in early, and only gains momentum as the story progresses. Quite simply, a fabulous read… A brilliantly crafted novel that I could not put down, even for a second. I was completely riveted from the word go. Lucy is a fascinatingly drawn character, whose reliability as a narrator is suspect at best. I adored this read, and would not hesitate to recommended it most highly.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘Kerry Wilkinson knows how to write! And craft a really good psychological thriller… There are a myriad of interesting characters along the way with plenty of red herrings. The end moves in like a runaway train and the twist is not what I was expecting.’ Goodreads Reviewer 'A fantastic thriller that I could not put down. A new favorite author to add to my list. Fabulous writing and characters.’ Goodreads Reviewer 'I was drawn in by the concept and the beginning really hooked me. Kerry Wilkinson definitely has an original voice and I can see why there has been a lot of talk about this book. I definitely needed to know how it all turned out!’ Ingrid Alexander Writes ‘It gripped me from the start and kept me turning the pages constantly. I liked Lucy’s character and really felt a connection to her and the people who lived around her, I think what was so emotive about this is the ‘everyday’ people who were central to the story. The people felt real…Really creepy and twisted, absolutely brilliant!’ Life Has a Funny Way 'Great read. My first from this author but definitely not my last. Tons of suspense and twists and turns. Can't wait for more.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘My first Kerry Wilkinson novel but absolutely not my last. From the offset you feel the tension build… Some great characters, an unusual plot and storyline and it's many twists make this a very enjoyable and engrossing read.’ NetGalley Reviewer 'I was totally gripped. It only took me a few hours to read this cover to cover and I barely put it down… I loved the writing style and will definitely read more by this author.’ Goodreads Reviewer 'I love Kerry's books and the way he writes, this was a fast paced, gripping read with interesting characters which kept me on the edge of my seat. I can thoroughly recommend this book, you will not be disappointed.’ NetGalley Reviewer 'An amazing thriller! Had a couple of red herrings that I tried to follow, plus a surprise ending. Highly recommended!' Goodreads Reviewer

Book Summary:

From New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the first novel in the beloved Regency-set world of her charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. In the ballrooms and drawing rooms of Regency London, rules abound. From their earliest days, children of aristocrats learn how to address an earl and curtsey before a prince—while other dictates of the ton are unspoken yet universally understood. A proper duke should be imperious and aloof. A young, marriageable lady should be amiable…but not too amiable. Daphne Bridgerton has always failed at the latter. The fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family, she has formed friendships with the most eligible young men in London. Everyone likes Daphne for her kindness and wit. But no one truly desires her. She is simply too deuced honest for that, too unwilling to play the romantic games that captivate gentlemen. Amiability is not a characteristic shared by Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings. Recently returned to England from abroad, he intends to shun both marriage and society—just as his callous father shunned Simon throughout his painful childhood. Yet an encounter with his best friend’s sister offers another option. If Daphne agrees to a fake courtship, Simon can deter the mamas who parade their daughters before him. Daphne, meanwhile, will see her prospects and her reputation soar. The plan works like a charm—at first. But amid the glittering, gossipy, cut-throat world of London’s elite, there is only one certainty: love ignores every rule... This novel includes the 2nd epilogue, a peek at the story after the story.
