Talk about a way to end off 2018! Ok, so I’m sure everyone has heard of the incredibly popular book THE WIFE BETWEEN US. Well, that incredible writing duo is back with their next novel.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for the free advanced copy in exchange for my hones review.
AN ANONYMOUS GIRL – Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen (Releasing January 8th, 2019 – next week!)
You can see the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one here! Make sure to check back for the #ATBR2019 thoughts on their follow up 🙂
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
What can I say without spoiling anything?? Last year I read THE WIFE BETWEEN US and could not put it down. Each part of that novel had a new revelation that gave you an audible, “What the actual f*** just happened?”. I can’t even explain how excited I was to receive an early copy of their follow up, AN ANONYMOUS GIRL. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are an incredible writing duo. Their writing is seamless and flows together flawlessly. There are times when multiple authors co-author a book that it can feel choppy or inconsistent, but not with these lades!
We have Jessica, a make up artist living in New York. On a job she overhears a voicemail for her client, an NYU student, about a psychological study she is going to participate in for generous compensation. Jessica takes the risk and goes in the student’s place the next morning. She is Subject 52 and is issued questions through a laptop – the topic? Morality, and she is instructed to be completely honest with Dr. Shields.
I don’t want to say anything more. Going into this knowing less is key! The main characters are just conniving, manipulative, and you don’t know who you can trust. The short chapters made this a fast one to fly through – but with the growing suspense and the need to know what will happen next is more than enough to make you binge! Just like THE WIFE BETWEEN US, I would highly recommend AN ANONYMOUS GIRL to those looking for an expertly woven cat and mouse thriller. Well developed characters, deception, cold and calculated steps, and all with the theme of morality. Will the trust really set you free?
