    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr...I really enjoyed Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s previous novel “The Wife Between Us”. So as soon as I saw the cover for this novel and read the synopsis, I knew I just had to read it. I devoured this novel in just a few hours, ignoring everything and everyone as I read. The book opens as twenty-eight-year-old makeup artist; Jessica Farris is heading to her last ap...

    FIVE STARS I don’t know their secret, but whatever it is (SUPREME TALENT), authors Pekkanen and Hendricks need to bottle up their magic Mojo and spread it like fairy dust over readers around the world. Their ingenious writing technique is guaranteed to pull you up by the bootstraps - out of any debilitating reading slump you may occasionally find yourself in. Believe the hype. It is real. The dynamic duo is currently hard at work on a sure-to-b...

Yes!With a promise of anonymity and a fat paycheck, Jessica weasels her way into a study on morality and ethics. She was assigned the name of Subject 52 and presented with numerous questions.  I cou...

    Completely unbelievable, yet totally enjoyable!A psychological study on morality turns into a game of cat and mouse. Who will come out on top? The subject of the study or the doctor who is playing much more than a game. That’s all I am going to say about the plot. It’s best to go into this blind.I didn’t love The Wife Between Us due to the number of twists and some other elements. I decided to go into An Anonymous Girl with an open mind. I ...

    Wow! Five big stars. For once, the hype and buzz are deserved. Remember the rules: Be open and truthful, and avoid pivoting away from any embarrassment or pain these questions provoke.This book grabbed me from the get go. A twenty eight year old woman sneaks herself into an ethics and morality study in order to earn some extra income. I was able to immediately put myself in her shoes. The initial questions had me wondering how I would answer. The...

    Ooh! So addictive! You will not be able to put this one down!Moral choices. No definitive right or wrong, a grey area that’s never that simple. Choices we make everyday. Choices that effect not only ourselves but everyone around us.Jessica is a struggling make-up artist in New York City. When a chance opportunity for quick cash falls in her lap she just can’t refuse! She fibs (just a little bit) to be included in a University psychology study...

    It's more than a little treacherous to steer your ship with a broken moral compass. Navigating through the raging waters of life leaves many a shipwreck in the aftermath.Jessica Farris knows this first hand. She's a twenty-eight year old makeup artist still trying to find her niche in New York City. She struggles to pay the rent on her studio apartment and her bookings from BuzzBeauty are hit or miss. Finding extra money to send home to her paren...

    4.5 Stars! "Not everyone is brave enough to face their demons." I really like an author who can spin a twisted tale and Greer/Pekkanen do it again in AN ANONYMOUS GIRL. 28 year old Jessica is a hardworking makeup artist who could use a few extra bucks to help her family back home....and pay her rent, so when she sees what seems to be an easy opportunity to make a fast $500 just by answering a few questions, she sneaks into a highly confidential ...
  • Amy
    I really have no business reading books that aren’t even out until next year (I may be drowning in ARCs) but when a copy of An Anonymous Girl arrived in my mailbox I dropped everything else and started reading it immediately. Last fall when I read The Wife Between Us I was totally blown away and I haven’t really stopped raving about it ever since. As excited as I was about this book I had that apprehension that I tend to get before reading a ...
  • Elyse Walters
    LONG....but NO SPOILERS......Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are on their way to becoming co-author psychological thriller legends. They had a break-out sensation hit with “The Wife Between Us”, last year in 2017. “An Anonymous Girl”, will be released in January, 2019. Greer and Sarah are an exciting team. There is something very appealing about two skillful stunning women holding us captive - as awed spectators -waiting to see who we ...
  • Paromjit
    Having really enjoyed reading The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, their talent is confirmed here with this hugely intense, compelling and addictive An Anonymous Girl, which moves in a rather different direction. This is a story set in New York City, of deception, betrayal, obsession, jealousy, where we are given two different protagonists, the naive and vulnerable 28 year old Jessica Farris and the clinical and detached psy...

    Jumping on the band wagon!Believe all the hype! What a fantastic psychological thriller! I would grab my pogo stick and hop to my heart’s content, but the band wagon is jam-packed and there’s no room for the thing. That’s okay; I’ll just have to hop in my head instead.How it starts. Bam! Juicy from page 1! (Hopping in my head already.) Jessica needs money so she joins a psychology study. Sounds innocent enough, right? She has to answer qu...
  • Theresa Alan
    This novel gets a lot of points for originality. It starts with Jessica, a makeup artist who’s struggling financially, finding out about a psychology study about morality. Answer some questions and make five hundred bucks. What could go wrong?A whole lot, of course. The story gets creepier and more tense the deeper into the book you go. Is Dr. Shields dangerous or just strangely manipulative? How much can Jess trust the doctor and other people ...
  • Carol (Bookaria)
    I picked up this novel because I enjoyed the authors’ previous book THE WIFE BETWEEN US. I became interested in reading AN ANONYMOUS GIRL as soon as I learned about it.What if you sign up to be part of a psychological study and you end up entangled in a lot more than you asked for? This is the premise of the book and let me tell you it does not disappoint.“One of them is lying. But who?”That is the question you’ll be asking yourself again...
  • Michelle
    I'll be honest and say that I was not all that impressed with The Wife Between Us. While I did race through the pages I also found it unnecessarily confusing and all of the twists took it over the top and I felt it bordered on ridiculous by the end. I'm glad to say that I did find An Anonymous Girl much more enjoyable.We have Jess, a struggling to get by make-up artist, pitted against the psychiatrist from Hell, Dr. Shields. Jess sneaks her way i...

    A smartly written, compelling tale with a ferocious intensity that made for breathless page turning.I’m not your typical suspense reader, the twists and turns aren’t as important to me as the psychological aspects--why the characters do what they do--throw in some moral dilemmas and characters making questionable choices and you’ve got my attention. Every lifetime contains pivot points--sometimes flukes of destiny, sometimes seemingly preor...

    "Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation.

    An Anonymous Girl is like a psychological thriller on steroids. I loved it. The hook is a unique – a woman with secrets in her past sneaks into a psychological study on ethics and morality. If you are craving a twisty psychological thriller, this is the book to read to get your fix. Multiple points of view? Check. Unreliable narrator? Check. Twists and turns? Check. Unputdownable? Check? Obsessive domestic relationships? Check. It even has an a...

    A book beyond description. Let me begin by thanking the authors and St. Martin's Press for allowing me to read and give an honest review. A psychological thriller of top notch quality. I read the book in approximately 18 hours and was hooked from the start. Well written, thoroughly believable plot and characters with so many faults and foibles that you must find that you empathize with their innermost thoughts. How much is revealed in a therapist...

    4+ starsWhat would you do for money if your family’s wellbeing depended on it? Would you participate in a study about ethics, revealing the ethical boundaries you’re willing to cross? Would you get drawn in further, and do some real life role playing for the sake of the research? What if it slowly dawned on you that there was more to what was going on than a research study?These two authors sure know how to come up with clever, original, on t...
