When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave. But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking…and what she’s hiding. As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what in her life is real, and what is one of Dr. Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.
I may not have enjoyed The Wife between Us as much as most readers but I absolutely loved An Anonymous Girl. I just knew that it would be a brilliant read, right from the first chapter. I was hooked and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I was caught up in the web created by Dr. Shields. Who is this psychologist and what is the test exactly? Jess certainly didn’t have the answers when she began the journey and neither did I.
Have you ever watched a spider build a web? I haven’t but I have always been curious to know how they come up with such an intricate design. Circle by circle, layer by layer, around and around. This is exactly how this story turned out to be. The mystery built with each new chapter. Along the way, the authors dropped tiny bombs that had my jaw drop. I like how these twists were subtle and found them to be even more captivating.
This is a mystery novel that is best enjoyed with little or no prior knowledge about the plot. The writing is impeccable, fascinating characters and a story-line that is utterly captivating. I enjoyed An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen and can’t recommend it enough.
