Last year I devoured The Wife Between Us, so when I saw that Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen were at it again with An Anonymous Girl, I immediately requested the book on Netgalley. This book has that gorgeous monotoned colored cover, with faces of women who could be anyone, and that really intrigued me. What was even more entrancing was the story.
Jessica needs money, she’s a make up artist by day, but she can barely cover her bills and her parents bills that she secretly pays each month, so when she overhears one of her clients talking about being part of a study about morality, Jessica decides to hi-jack that girls spot and get in to the study herself. I mean, what could go wrong, all she has to do is answer some silly questions anonymously and go home, right?
Of course it’s not that easy. Along with the typical morality questions, Jessica is set up in real life situations where she must go above and beyond her comfort zone, to the point of being in dangerous situations, all in the name of morality, or so she thinks. Then she meets the woman behind the study, who happens to have her own personal vendetta, and Jessica may be wrapped up in something she won’t be able to get out of alive.
Chances are if you read a lot of thrillers like I do, you’ll be able to predict this one, unlike The Wife Between Us, the twist didn’t catch me off guard, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the writing was superb as usual. I cannot wait to see what these two come up with next. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
