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 appointment of the day. She travels to her clients instead ...more

Devious to the max!
I devoured this book in two days and didn't want to put it down! A riveting story of psychological suspense. I was quickly questioning every move every character made. From beginning to end, I was all in! Yes!

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 can trust - who to believe- who’s the stalker -and who’s t ...more
"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 morality and ethics survey that turns her life int...more
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 and again as you read it. This is an addictive and suspen ...more
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 she encounters as the study moves from the laborator ...more
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. Simple enough - answer a few questions and receive s ...more
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 preordained--that shape and eventually cement one’s path.
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 conducting a survey on ethics and morality, and Je ...more
Jessica Farris is a make up artist, doing freelance work for all different types of people in New York. After completing one of her assignments, Jessica gets wind of a psyc ...more

How much is revealed in a therapists office? Do we all have insecurities, guilt, a ne ...more
So many twists & turns that you almost need to backtrack to be sure you just read the words right! The evil characters that you almost become yo like bc they’re so wickedly absorbing! I read tons of books & usually guess how it’s all going to go right away but not with this one. Down to the last page I was still shaking my head in wonderment.
Thanks to St. Martins Press for this early copy: ...more

I think instead about the guy who just texted, and how he stared after me when I walked toward the museum. With him, I can just be an anonymous girl.
Without a doubt this is one unputdownable read. I made the mistake of picking it up one evening when I went to bed for an early night. I read the first few chapters one the first evening and finished it off the next evening in the second sitting. Obviously no early night for me!
At times it felt a bit like a game of table tennis. Back and ...more
