You Are Not Alone: Book Review
By Danielle Rose
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
The thrilling new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of An Anonymous Girl and The Wife Between Us.
You Are Not Alone is the third highly anticipated standalone novel from author duo Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, and I absolutely devoured it!
Shay Miller has never been more unhappy.
✓ Working as a data analyst at a temp. job, she hates her work.
✓ Every day, she becomes more isolated, choosing to stay in rather than make friends.
✓ Secretly infatuated with her roommate Sean (but he's happily dating someone else), she can't seem to find love.
✓ When Sean informs Shay that his girlfriend Jody is going to move in, she suddenly finds herself homeless.
Jobless, friendless, loveless, homeless, and now she's a witness to a brutal suicide? Shay just can't catch a break. Until she meets the alluring and successful Moore sisters, Cassandra and Jane, who take Shay under their wing, showering her with gifts, praise, friendship, love... The sisters seem to have resources to alleviate all of Shay's problems, and suddenly, Shay is happy. Forever seen as the smart chick, she now feels confident and sexy. She feels welcomed and loved, realizing all she ever wanted was to belong.
Unfortunately, the Moore sisters aren't Shay's saving grace, and soon, Shay finds herself tangled in a web of lies and deceit. Piece by piece, Shay must sift through the threads, freeing herself from one disturbingly sinister plot. Along the way, Shay learns very important lessons, the toughest one being: no one betrays the Moore sisters.
I am an avid reader of this author duo, having become a fan after their stellar debut novel, The Wife Between Us. With each book, I know I will encounter a well-crafted story that's smartly written with strong writing, vivid characters, and expertly placed clues which lead to a final, satisfying twist. They have yet to disappoint. I absolutely recommend this book if you enjoy suspense novels.
