My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Antagonistic, chilling, and frightening are the words that come to my mind when I try to describe this novel. After stories like this, I start to question everyone and everything around me. Interesting, isn’t it, how a person can really think they can play and manipulate real people like marionettes? Welcome to the world of Dr. Lydia Shields, where everything is possible…
A struggling make-up artist Jess Farris hears of a psychology study from her client. Rules seem to be simple: arrive on time, answer a few questions, and receive $500 at the end of the two-day study. However, days after the study is completed, Jess receives a text message, from Dr. Shield, with an offer she can’t refuse. Within a few weeks, Jess starts to question every “test” and “request” Dr. Shields sets up for “Subject 52”. Therefore, she decides to dig dipper into Lydia Shields’ life. By the time Jess realizes that she is involved in a web of lies and secrets, it’s too late to escape manipulating psychiatrist… Jess belongs to her now.
“An Anonymous Girl” is a second psychological suspense novel written by a dynamic duo Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. And just like their first book “The Wife Between Us”, it didn’t disappoint. It’s quite a rollercoaster, each chapter reveals a new secret. It’s one of those books that you read so fast that you skip the words and lines because you can’t wait to find out what happens next.
