Looking to earn some easy cash, Jessica Farris agrees to be a test subject in a psychological study about ethics and morality. But as the study moves from the exam room to the real world, the line between what is real and what is one of Dr. Shields’s experiments blurs.
Dr. Shields seems to know what Jess is thinking… and what she’s hiding.
Jessica’s behavior will not only be monitored, but manipulated.
Caught in a web of attraction, deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.
From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, An Anonymous Girl will keep you riveted through the last shocking twist.
Entertaining, but not my favorite ending4By pcard0013I thought the book was great throughout, and there were some interesting twists. I wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, but still would definitely recommend.
If you liked their first book....4By MrsRosser2Wait a while to read this. In and of itself it’s a great book. The Wife Between Us prepares you to seek the twist which I found myself doing almost obsessively while reading An Anonymous Girl ... I don’t think I enjoyed the depth of the characters because I was reading between the lines. I say, read both books with a lot of time between them ( I read each within a week of the release date) or begin this with intentional avoidance of twist-hunting.
WOW!!!5By Arnies volunteerGreat book.….a must read. Twists and turns up to the very end. Enjoy!
Not dark, not twisted, not shockingly suspenseful3By Alessia1129Can a book be falsely advertised? I usually don’t leave reviews, but in this case I have to make it clear that it is not as twisted as they hype this up to be. Although I appreciate the storyline and the character development, there really is not anything that took me by surprise or by shock. I was looking for a dark, suspenseful, “never saw it coming” story, and this one is not it. While it starts off slow and is pretty repetitive, the storyline of the character, Jess, and the connection to the antagonist, Dr. Shields, has some appeal.
Couldn’t put it down!5By TamezmommyThis book is by far the best one I’ve read!
Great book!5By AmyAmyAmy1985Couldn’t put it down. Their writing is amazing.
A mediocre read3By SmbowenIt was a mediocre read. It wasn’t very suspenseful.
Where was the twist?2By MelF27I read this whole book waiting for some major flip flop of characters that was unexpected and there was no payoff at all at the end. I’m so confused. It seemed to have intrigue throughout, but then, nothing. :(
Amended Review5By steph_figOkay, I needed to amend my earlier (lukewarm) review as I’d written it when I was only halfway through this book. I (finally) just finished this book, & while the consistent use of the passive voice still distracted me to no end (not to mention felt a tad pretentious), I see now how it served a purpose. Thoroughly enjoyed this one ‘til the very end (just like ‘The Wife Between Us’).
Convoluted and nonsensical1By jillj1019Painful to finish but hoping there would be a conclusion that made sense. No such luck.
