The electrifying #1 New York Times bestselling authors of THE WIFE BETWEEN US and AN ANONYMOUS GIRL return with a brand new novel of psychological suspense.
Shay Miller 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 increasingly lonely.
Until Shay meets the Moore sisters. Cassandra and Jane live a life of glamorous perfection, and always get what they desire. When they invite Shay into their circle, everything seems to get better.
Shay would die for them to like her.
She may have to.
You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen is a suspenseful domestic mystery.
After witnessing a horrifying event, thirty-one year old Shay Miller’s life continues its downward spiral. She is working as a temp while searching for a new job. She is in love with her platonic roommate Sean, but his new girlfriend is quietly edging Shay out of their lives. Lonely and demoralized, Shay is an easy target for sisters Jane and Cassandra Moore.
Cassandra and Jane are quite close and very successful. They are charismatic and share a close circle of trusted friends. Unbeknownst to Shay, Cassandra and Jane have an increasingly dangerous agenda as they deviously insert themselves into her life.
Shay is somewhat shy and loves data and statistics. She also proves to be incredibly naive as she eagerly welcomes Cassandra and Jane’s burgeoning friendship. However, Shay soon discovers that Cassandra and Jane might not be the fairy godmothers she believes them to be. She finally grasps what the sisters are up to, but is it too late for Shay to save herself?
You Are Not Alone is a compelling mystery with a frustratingly trusting heroine and an inventive storyline. Shay is agonizingly desperate for companionship which makes her very easy to manipulate. Cassandra and Jane are quite charming but there is much more to the sisters and their friends than meets the eye. Unanticipated plot twists are revealed late in the story and Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen brings this tension-filled mystery to a thrilling conclusion. I completely enjoyed and highly recommend this latest novel from this creative crime writing duo.
