The Party at No.12 by Kerry Wilkinson #BookReview #BooksOnTour #ThePartyAtNumber12 #PsychologicalThriller #NetGalley @kerrywk @Bookouture #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing on its publication day The Party at No. 12 by Kerry Wilkinson, published by Bookouture.


In a grand townhouse rented specially for the evening, Hannah beams at her guests under the sparkling chandelier. Her sisters, her mother and aunt, her best friends… although she’ll miss them all so much when she moves away, tonight is about celebrating the happy times and raising a toast to the future.

But the next morning, one of the guests is found cold and lifeless in their pristine white bed.

Hannah is desperate to call the police. After all, it must have been an accident. Perhaps too much wine, on a night where emotions were running high. But it soon becomes clear that every single person at the party has something to hide.

A mother who’ll do anything for her daughters.
Best friends with dark secrets between them.
A sister with a jealous streak.

What if one of them is a killer?

And what if this is just the first victim?

An absolutely unputdownable thriller that won’t let you sleep until you’ve reached the final page! Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, The Hunting Party and Shari Lapena.

“Everyones invited…Someone will never leave…”

Kerry Wilkinsons delivers another compelling and gripping read with The Party at No 12. Immediately drawn into the drama, the pages just turned themselves and I was invested in both the story and it’s diverse cast of characters.

I love a locked room thriller with characters that all have something to hide and I got that and so much more with this book. I enjoyed trying to solve the puzzle along the way, but as is always the case with Wilkinson’s books, he does love to throw in some curve balls that throw you off the scent!

A great read full of tension and suspense, if you are a fan of psychological thrillers, you will definitely want to check this one out.

Thank you to Kerry Wilkinson, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Party at No.12, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

My thanks to Bookouture for my spot on this books on tour and for the promotional materials.


Kerry Wilkinson is from the English county of Somerset but has spent far too long living in the north. It’s there that he’s picked up possibly made-up regional words like ‘barm’ and ‘ginnel’. He pretends to know what they mean.

He’s also been busy since turning thirty: his Jessica Daniel crime series has sold more than a million copies in the UK; he has written a fantasy-adventure trilogy for young adults; a second crime series featuring private investigator Andrew Hunter and the standalone thriller, Down Among The Dead Men.
