    Twisted. Intense. Deviously fun. Why was it that I skipped this co-author's debut?This writing duocomposed of Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendrickswields some kind of power with their combined words. That elusive it factor present, allowing readers to succumb all too easily to the manipulation. Its the very experience I hope for each and every time I pick up a bookrealistic or not. Life effortlessly fading into the background as the intensity and ...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... I really enjoyed Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanens 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 appointme...

    FIVE STARS I dont 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-be t...

    I really enjoyed this book! Deceptive, creepy, and unsettling.CW: sexual assault, suicide, deathI devoured An Anonymous Girl. This book was so easy to engage with. I really enjoyed that the book is actually told in two perspectives; One in first person, one in second. This element really added to the creepy factor of the novel, as its almost disturbing to think of someones internal monologue constantly being geared towards the actions and thought...

    4.5 compulsive, page turning stars ⭐ for An Anonymous GirlI must start off by simply saying I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I'm a fan of cat & mouse type thrillers and this played right into that captivating me from the start and never letting go! "In every lifetime, there are pivot points that shape and eventually cement one's path." Jessica is a make-up artist, living in NY, struggling to make ends meet. While working on a client she hears a...

    Loved it! Devoured it! Devious to the max! I devoured this book in two days and didn't want to put it down!

Yes!With a promise of anonymity and a fat paycheck, Jessica weasels her way into a study on morality and ethics.

    "Seeking women ages 1832 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed."The plot for this story is incredibly original and is what initially piqued my interest in this book. But that's where it ends for me. I already know that I'll be in the minority with my opinions as this book will no doubt appeal to the masses.Told in two points of view, that of Dr Shields, the alluring, manipulative therapist c...

    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...
  • Meredith
    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. Thats all I am going to say about the plot. Its best to go into this blind.I didnt 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 knew this...
  • Dita
    You know the saying, "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me?"I hated this duo's last book, The Wife Between Us. In my opinion, they copped out with the cheapest of literary devices in a way completely unfair to the reader.Then I started reading reviews for The Anonymous Girl and a lot of people said that they too weren't fans of the first book but found this one to be better. So in a moment of irrational thinking, I purchased the...

    5 mind blowing stars! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Did you ever have a book you saved, even though you got a copy really, really early, because you knew it would be good? I didnt want An Anonymous Girl to be over long before I ever started reading it. The year-long wait until another book from this dynamite duo feels longer than a year! Thats a great thing in this case; these two authors are perfection together. The Wife Between Us by these Hendricks and ...

    Another entry in the "Books with 'Girl' in the title" series. These books are usually hit or miss for me. Luckily, An Anonymous Girl was closer to the hit side of things.I thought the book took a creative approach to its twisty mystery. As these books are becoming so commonplace, it is becoming easier to predict the shocks. And, even if there is still a bit of a surprise, it can be easy to say,"Ho hum, that twist was like . . . .". With this book...

    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.

  • Tammy
    I didnt care for The Wife Between Us it was too over the top for me but given the hootin and hollerin about An Anonymous Girl I decided to give it a go. I did, in fact, like this much more than the authors previous novel but I couldnt shake the feeling that Ive read this before. Finally, I decided that my sense of déjà vu had to do with the power psychologists and psychiatrists wield over those held in their thrall which surfaces frequently in ...
