Life effortlessly fading into the background as the intensity and promise for something truly twisted takes over no matter how loud the tv might be, who s begging for attention, or the myriad of things niggling on your conscience Believe me, none of those things will matter in the face of this devious page turner In fact, at times, coming up for breath might not feel optional Looking back, there are a few reasons I chose to pass on The Wife Between Us Number one being the hordes of hype The overwhelming availability, constant marketing and utter feed domination turned me off Bottom line, hype leads to grandiose expectations, which typically leads to disappointment Something I ve become all too familiar with in the literary world as of late I m sure there s bound to be an exhaustive campaign here as well getting in front of that the only way I was able to keep my expectations at a manageable level With that said, in my humble opinion, An Anonymous Girl deserves any and all of the hype that s put out there If this book is any indication of the sheer cleverness involved in The Wife Between Us, count me in Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks introduce readers to Jessica or Jess just another anonymous girl working in New York as a freelance makeup artist Eager to earn some extra cash, Jess manages to finagle her way into a psychological study she overhears one of her clients bailing on Referred to as Subject 52, Jess is asked to answer a serious of moral and ethical questions honestly, via a lone laptop in a barren classroom I m not used to expressing myself like this Writing about hidden thoughts is like washing off makeup and seeing a bare face. Much like Jessica s theories surrounding the study, this book is nothing like what I had envisioned going in This is so much than just another anonymous title, floating around faceless in what s become a saturated genre Addictive, original, gasp inducing, An Anonymous Girl meets all of the requirements necessary to be tagged as a memorable suspense read Thank you to St Martin s Press for providing a copy in exchange for my honest review. flag 490 likesLike see review View all 113 comments Ryan I also skipped The Wife Between Us last year because of all the hype But on a whim I picked

appointment of the day She travels to her clients instead of them coming to her Even though she doesn t always know who will answer the door, Jessica doesn t fear strangers She s learned that harm can come from familiar faces Jessica enjoys what she does Her appointment is with two young women who are going out to a club that evening As she applies their makeup, she loses herself in her work, barely hearing the women chatting to each other But then she overhears a voicemail message one of the women plays This is Ben Quick, Dr Shields s assistant I m confirming your appointments this weekend, for tomorrow and Sunday from eight to ten a.m The location again is Hunter Hall, Room 214 I ll meet you in the lobby and take you up Jessica doesn t know that this message will change her life completely.A psych professor needs subjects for a study on morality and ethics Applicants will be paid to answer questions Jessica could really use the money So when she hears that her client likely won t be attending, she decides to go in her place She s accepted into the study and will be bound by a confidentiality agreement Jessica is told there are no right or wrong answers, she just needs to be completely open and honest The questions are personal and may trigger very emotional responses Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt But Jessica surprises herself and the doctor when she doesn t shy away from the questions When the sessions are complete, the doctor asks if Jessica would consider expanding her participation in the study It would mean would be asked of her SIGNIFICANTLY MORE It would also mean money.Jessica really opens up to the doctor She talks about the pressure she s under and the secret she s kept for so many years Guilt is always the heaviest thing I carry With Dr Shields, she s able to reveal things she s never talked about before.But as the project expands, Jessica starts to wonder what the doctor is doing with all of the information collected What will the doctor do with Jessica s innermost thoughts Her confessions Her mistakes Then the assignments take a strange and unexpected turn Is she just being paranoid or is something sinister going on An Anonymous Girl was a thought provoking and phenomenal read It pulled me in from the beginning and wouldn t let go The chapters are a nice length and alternate between Jessica and the doctor s point of view.In my opinion, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen knocked this one out of the park This was a fascinating psychological suspense novel with a great storyline, excellent characters, and twists and turns that kept me flipping pages at a rapid pace.A wonderfully dark and suspenseful novel about love, anger, betrayal, morality, and obsession.I d like to thank St Martin s

books are already being shoved in our faces and by the time they come out we are underwhelmed and sick to our stomachs of seeing said book floating around social media to the point we scream and rip out our hair Don t worry, this isn t one of those That s not to say we won t see it floating around prominently for the next six months, simply that it is in fact worthy of every bit of hype it s already receiving In all honesty, I was a bit nervous picking up the sopho novel following readers beloved The Wife Between Us, simply due to the high bar that was set with this author duo s debut In my humble opinion, An Anonymous Girl was even better than TWBU, and I mean that as the highest compliment that I can give We all have reasons for our actions Even if we hide the reason from those who think they know us best Even if the reasons are so deeply buried we can t recognize them ourselves.This is one you need to go into the plot blind folks Where The Wife Between Us is known for that massive twist you know the one I m talking about , An Anonymous Girl slams you over and over again It s not comprised of a single, WTF twist this one hits you time and again with OMG Oh No She Didn t whiplash Every time I thought I had this one figured out, it turns out I had misjudged and things kept changing It was the type of complex, thrilling novel of suspense that I have t come across in quite awhile It s getting harder as an avid reader of mysteries to find ones that I can t figure out immediately, and this one proved to me that there ARE still new tricks and writing techniques that can be used to fool readers while keeping them engaged with the characters And talk about some wicked nasty characters My favorite I m going to shut up now and let you decide if this is a book you re interested in, but just know that I enjoyed it so much that I m contemplating re reading it before publication date just to see if I can catch any of the clues that I missed the first go around it was

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 it s almost disturbing to think of someone s internal monologue constantly being geared towards the actions and thoughts of another character without their knowledge I would totally recommend the audiobook for this reason as the voice actors did a fantastic job.One issue I took with the novel is the theme of morality and ethics was too oversaturated I had a similar issue with Riley Sager s The Last Time I Lied with the theme of lies I can t stand it when a book is shoving a certain subject matter at me from all angles and does not allow me to pick up the subtext myself The way morals decisions are integrated into the storyline was obvious and clever enough until the characters constantly started referring to the topic in plain conversation It was repetitive and tiresome I think the book would have benefited from subtlety.Additionally, I felt Jessica was too skeptical as a character She s not particularly clever or smart, but is constantly questioning the motives and truth of EVERYTHING without any sufficient reason to in the beginning It created a real contrast between how Jessica prepared herself for conflict and how she attempted to actually resolve it It seemed as if the authors were insecure about the audience s inquisitive abilities and spoon fed readers questions to consider before they could form them themselves This is another huge pet peeve of mine and I likely would have enjoyed the book if I spent less time questioning the authenticity of Jessica s thought process.Finally, An Anonymous Girl is not the most shocking, horrifying novel I have ever read It s pretty light on gore and violence, which I feel makes it a great choice for those who want to read thrillers without being scared or grossed out The twists were sometimes clever, but mostly unsurprising when not expected I would have liked shock factor, but the charm of this story is the overall ambience of the novel The disconcerting vibe that follows you from beginning to end It was not the most unbelievable mystery I ve ever read, but it was twisted, unsettling, and unique Would definitely recommend flag 256 likesLike see review View all 5 comments Ehsan

walks in and becomes simply Subject 52 The rules are simple Be open and truthful, and avoid pivoting away from any embarrassment or pain the questions provoke. Soon Jess finds herself divulging her deepest secrets via questions posed on a computer screen Dr Lydia Shields, the psychiatrist conducting the study is equally drawn in by Jess responses to her questions At the end of her two sessions, Jess is invited to expand her participation in the study for higher compensation but at what cost What ensues, told in alternating POV chapters between Dr

rollercoaster ride filled with twists and turns I found this psychological thriller to be very addicting once I got to the suspense The chapters are very short, so it is a fast paced read This book is very well written I loved the dialogue, and the writing style The characters were so well developed This one kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me intrigued to find out what was going to happen next This was an unpredictable read for me It was so surprising I could not put it down and kept wondering what was going to happen next The book ended very well It kept my attention and amazed me It

up for a research study, you might want to think twice and you will after reading this book You re Invited Seeking women aged 18 to 32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality conducted by a preeminent NYC psychiatrist Generous compensation Anonymity guaranteed Call for details.Jess is a makeup artist who came to New York dreaming of a career in the theater She has a lot of secrets she s kept hidden, which has led her to become totally self reliant, although money is one of the biggest sources of anxiety she has to deal with When she overhears a client thinking about not showing up for a research study she was supposed to participate in and it pays 500 Jess decides there s nothing wrong with pretending to fill in for the young woman, since 500 would really help with this month s rent.Jess figures all she ll need to do is answer some questions, collect her money, and leave She wasn t expecting the questions to be difficult, like Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt Describe a time in your life when you cheated, or Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about But than that, she wasn t expecting the psychiatrist conducting the study whom she never met to give feedback on her answers, and encourage her to be honest and in depth.As the sessions continue, and the payoff increases, Jess can t help but wonder what the study really is all about While she is utterly unsettled when the psychiatrist, whom she finds out is the renowned Dr Lydia Shields, asks whether Jess would be willing to expand her participation in the study But when Jess learns that the compensation would be significantly higher, there s no way she can turn Dr Shields request down.Expanding her participation in the study is definitely not what she expected Dr Shields starts to tell Jess where to go, how to dress, and whom to meet and in some cases, that entails striking up a conversation with a specific man Jess begins feeling uncomfortable, and wonders exactly what Dr Shields wants to accomplish More and , she questions whether she can trust the doctor and then Jess discovers a disturbing coincidence that she needs to hide from her, or the doctor could destroy her life An Anonymous Girl is a pretty wild book, full of twists and turns You wonder how you might react in the same situation, but at the same time I found myself shaking my head in disbelief at times that Jess could be so clueless There were definitely some surprises thrown in, but ultimately I had my ideas about how the plot would unfold I just kept hoping that things wouldn t go completely awry, and I was pleased they didn t.Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, whose last book, The Wife Between Us , contained some shockers but didn t quite click for me, definitely kicked it up with An Anonymous Girl I didn t love some of the characters and I wondered whether some of this stuff could and does really happen but the pacing of the book was terrific, and I was hooked from start to finish I was also glad that the twists they threw in fit with the plot rather than just be included to confuse and shock.I know this book will be everywhere when it s released in January, because it s the type of book you can t put down, and it definitely will keep you wondering what comes next Hendricks and Pekkanen mesh well together, and I can t wait for their next book.NetGalley and St Martin s Press provided me an

she has a lot of residual guilt stemming from that Also, due to this incident, she can find it painful at times to be with her family and they are under extreme financial distress Dr Lydia Shields Dr Shields is a wealthy and successful psychiatrist and author who works at a local college teaching seminars and performing research studies, mainly on morality Her perspective is written in second person which I did find jarring at first but eventually became used to and even enjoyed.Jessica and Dr Shields become acquainted when Jessica lies her way into participating in one of Dr Shields psychological studies Motivated exclusively by money at first, Jessica eventually finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into Dr Shields web.The relationship lines are extremely blurry with Jessica and Dr Shields I was so confused as to who was the predator and who was the prey They both seemed so enad with one another.To add to the complication we get Dr Shields husband, Thomas, thrown into the mix Again, is he good or is he bad Everyone in this book is just too damn smart for their own good Manipulation FACTOR 10 The story is extremely fast paced, with a lot of twists and turns and ups and downs.Someone pass the dramamine There was mystery, investigation, a spectacular game of cat and mouseI ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT In my opinion, this could definitely be one of the top Adult Thrillers I

style, this book pulled me in until the final delicious ending scene I am blown away Jessica is a fantastic leading character, because from the beginning I wasn t sure if I could fully trust her accounting of events that transpired Jessica has plenty of secrets and finding out what they are and watching her learn her own opinions on ethics, morality, and honesty were completely captivating for me And then Dr Shields OH DR SHIELDS I can t say much because you ll have to learn about the enigmatic Dr Shields as you read, but suffice it to say I considered from the very beginning whether I should call the IRB on Dr Shields Is this research IRB approved I need to see the signed approval letter, Dr Shields But jokes about research ethics aside, the premise of this study is so interesting I m not going to talk even a moment about where the study heads, but in the opening when we see Jessica answering the survey on the computer I couldn t look away The questions are fascinating, as is the research protocol But the real thrill I had was in reading Jessica s thought process as she answered the questions What was Jessica willing to divulge And how did she reason through her journey of self discovery You ll have to read the book to find out And then and I promise I m keeping this entire review spoiler free there are some truly amazing characters in this book aside from Dr Shields and Jessica From the two girls whose make up Jessica is crafting in chapter 1, straight to the end of the book I won t even name these characters because I truly believe that every reader should

Dr Shields, the alluring, manipulative therapist conducting a survey on ethics and morality, and Jess, the unlucky participant that has drawn the attention of Dr Shields Dr Shields finds Jess is most suitable for a personal agenda and begins the process of grooming and manipulating her Its clear that the chapters narrated by Dr Shields are meant to have a creepy feel but the atmosphere falls flat Jess is likeable enough, devastatingly flawed and a victim of her own secrets.I m all for a slow burn but this book burns so slow it extinguished itself by the 40% mark and never really becomes engaging throughout The synopsis for this book paints a picture of a story psychologically frightening than is actually between the pages The story is totally implausible, which I could forgive if only the narrative had been told in a captivating way There are no twists in this book, no gasping moments, no real sense of mystery The ending is just blah and completely farfetched I found the story to be pretty lackluster throughout.I would be remiss in not mentioning that clearly the authors are fans of fashion because nearly every scene includes a detailed description of what the characters are wearing down to the tiniest of details These details lend nothing to the storyline and become laughable at points because of the absurdity of their inclusion in the book I m giving this one 2.5

who up to the final chapter In An Anonymous Girl , once again if you are sure you know what s happening in a scene, think again There are many layers to peel back as we turn the pages I purposely slowed down my reading I had no interest to race through this book I thoroughly enjoyed thinking about issues and questions presented Like panning for gold when searching for INTELLIGENT PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERS cream of the crops An Anonymous Girl , synonymous with Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, and The Wife Between Us , these two books make the cut An Anonymous Girl Ethics and Morality is a hot topic It s at least worthy of a few lifetime discussions I found it exciting and refreshing to center a psychological suspense novel around a study of this inquiry.The first few chapters ARE SERIOUSLY PAGE TURNERS We follow the set up story between Dr Shields, adjunct professor at NYU, psychiatrist, and Jessica Farris, 28 year old makeup artist Jessica works for a company called BeautyBuzz She goes to clients homes and gives them a makeover for events like Proms, Bar Mitzvahs, birthdays, and anniversaries she misses working in Theater Jessica lives alone with her dog Leo We get back story about Jessica s parents and younger sister Becky Becky is a few years younger than Jessica, but lives with her parents and requires special needs Jessica becomes a paid participant in the study on Ethics and Morality Right off the bat, Jessica lied her way into the study Jessica Subject 52 , agreed to be bound by confidentiality She wasn t allowed to discuss what she was doing with anybody While answering questions that pop up one at a time on a computer screen we can imagine sitting in a private room in a sterile setting in Jessica s chair , wanting to shy away from feelings of vulnerability but Jessica is asked to surrender to the process completely answer the questions honestly for the process to be successful We sense Jessica wants to put her entire heart into the study Even when uncomfortable we sense she wants to please Dr Sheild s Dr Sheild s notices A trust begins to grow The Rules are simple and clear Be truthful avoid pivoting away from embarrassment or pain that the questions provoke Intimacy begins to grow between Jessica and Dr Shields Proper boundaries are questionable The questions themselves in the study were intriguing Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt , Describe a time in your life when you cheated AND MANY MOREOver weeks Jessica will be digging deeper going beyond the superficial.EVENTUALLYThe original study falls off an honorable grid Dr Shields prepares an unorthodox experiment Jessica Farris, becomes a pawn for Dr Shields own purposes.It wasn t until about half way into this novel or a little when I felt a genuine thriller edge elevate I ENJOYED BOTH HALVES OF THIS NOVEL.t we feel a change As Jessica s anxiety grows into anger I started noticing tension building in my own physical body YET WITH GREAT RESPECT DIGNITY FROM OUR AUTHORS THERE ARE NO GRAPHIC DISTURBING SCENESI really love these women authors THEY ARE SETTING AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT I HOPE TO SEE MORE OF when writing novels in this genre I started thinking about those one or two times when my entire life changed in less than 5 minutes If we are honest each of us have moments like this Jessica did too Only six weeks ago, Jessica worried about how she

special study is really about An Anonymous Girl had me rushing through the pages to see what would happen next Filled with deceit, it was interesting to try to guess which characters were trustworthy and which ones were not Some of the situations in the story bordered on too far fetched, and there were numerous points in the story where I felt Jessica was just too green and naive Neither of these things detracted from my overall enjoyment reading the book though Recommended for fans of fast paced, suspenseful drama flag 119 likesLike see review View all 35 comments Rich Great review Brandice

    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 homed 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 morality and ethics survey that turns her life into a dangerous game of truth or consequences.

    The dual narration is fast moving with a constant underlying sense of danger that bring out a myriad of secrets and lies.

    Many thanks to St Martin s Press and NetGalley for the arc in exchange for an unbiased review.

was probably one of the most unnerving that I have ever read which made it all the exciting Seeking women ages 18 32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality Generous compensation Anonymity

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 psychiatrist Dr Lydia Shields, an academic at NYU Jessica is a freelance make up artist who visits her clients at home, she is struggling financially, not to mention she has a younger sister, Becky, with special needs that require financial support for the help she needs When she sees the opportunity to get on to a research study that pays, she has no compunctions about lying her way on to it, despite the irony of the topic It is seeking women between the ages of 18 32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality with anonymity guaranteed.Subject to a confidentiality agreement, Jessica, as subject 52, embarks on the study at Hunter Hall, answering demanding personal questions on a computer screen, guided to be truthful After the sessions, Jessica is asked to get further involved for further lucrative financial rewards Jessica trusts Dr Shields with her secrets and has no problem with continuing with the study However, Jessica s new assignments are out of the classroom and venturing into strange and disturbing territory Jessica s paranoia levels begin to rise as she finds herself in the hands of a controlling Lydia, who has a estranged husband, Thomas, and is operating from her own hidden agenda The slow reveals in this twisted, character driven and fast paced story of secrets and lies are expertly done by the authors This is a wonderfully thought provoking read, it will have you pondering over the moral and ethical dilemmas posed within it with its great character studies This novel with its unreliable narrators is a salutary lesson for all of us in not blindingly trusting any professional, not everyone is worthy of trust A brilliantly entertaining and creepy read from authors that are establishing themselves as
