Hey all! I have just finished reading You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.
You probably know someone like Shay Miller. She wants to find love, but it eludes her. She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end. She wants to belong, but her life is becoming increasingly isolated.
You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters. They have an unbreakable circle of friends. They live a life of glamour and perfection. They always get what they desire.
Shay thinks she wants their life.
But what they really want is hers.

This is the second book I have read from this author duo. The first book I have read from these authors (and their second book), An Anonymous Girl was so fast paced thriller that I was actually excited to read their latest book. (I still haven’t read their debut books The Wife Between Us). And there were so many favorable reviews that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and finally I did.
I am having mixed feelings about this book.
Shay Miller is a lonely thirty something year old woman who is into data and statistics having lost her job recently and coping with the fact that her roommate, Sean, whom she had secret crush on was dating another girl. One Sunday, while waiting for the subway train, Shay witness a woman committing suicide by jumping in front of the train. Then Shay’s life changes as she then meets two vibrant sisters, Cassandra and Jane at that woman’s memorial service, as Shay was struggling and dealing about the woman’s death. Shay’s life changes when she becomes friends with the two sisters, but the two sisters want something else from her…
I have to say, the story was good but sadly, this was not as good as An Anonymous Girl. However, the thrill in the book was there, with some twists and turns, though I should say, it was a bit predictable in the end. The writing was good however as the authors did manager to make the reader hook into the story. The characters to me was bland, Shay really naive and Cassandra and Jane seem to be those over the top villainess that you wouldn’t really want to mess up with.
Overall it was a good book, worth four stars as it was actually a fast paced thriller with twists and turns.
