You Are Not Alone
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 so isolated.
You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters.
They have an unbreakable circle of friends.
They live the most glamorous life.
They always get what they desire.
Shay thinks she wants ...more
Oof, this is a tough one to review, because there is such a small amount of content I can discuss here without taking away from your reading experience. I'm going to tiptoe around the spoiler mines planted throughout, and my goal is to leave you wanting to read the ...more
Well, I have to admit three things: This evil genius duo can write a hell of an incredible book and know how to play twisty, dark, edgy mind games with you.
Second thing: I had to check several times and made sure that book is not Harley Quinn and gang members’ adventures because we have a team of badass, ...more
Fabulous book. Brilliant audio. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have written an addictive and compelling story. Barrie Kreinik and Dylan Moore brought the captivating tale to life with their exceptional audio narration. Just like the previous two books from this dynamic writing dual this book was twisted and filled with complex characters. It’s like putting together a giant puzzle when you’re not certain you have all the pieces. Their stories really dive deep into ...more
“An orbit is a regular, repeating path that one object in space takes another one”. [this quote is not from this book...but it relates]...
This is the 3rd psychological thriller I’ve read by the power-team co-authors: Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.
Greer and Sarah have matching T-shirts that say....”Better Together”. ( cute)...
Their philosophy about ‘togetherness-power’, in You Are Not Alone”, comes through loud and clear....yet ...more
A couple weeks ago I read The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen. I had low expectations but man I loved that book. It was fun, fast paced and I couldn't put it down.
So when I saw the giveaway for You Are Not Alone on Goodreads I immediately entered to win it.
AND I WON IT!!!!
Just like with The Wife Between Us, I feel like its best to go into this with as little info as possible. I read this knowing nothing. The back of the book gives you a 2 sentence blurb ...more
Like the movie, Ocean’s 8, (without a heist) the MANY female characters associated with the Moore sisters have their specialties, their disguises and their roles to play...
Shay, is a market researcher who sees the World through Statistics. She has been keeping data books since the age of eleven, the way other kids kept diaries. Numbers don’t lie.
There is a void in her life that ...more

Shay Miller is just your every day average woman trying to make it in NYC. She has a less than satisfying job and she lives with a room mate that she is secretly in love with and has to endure his girlfriends giggles in the next room making home the last place she wants to be.
While waiting at a train platform one day the unthinkable happens. She witnesses a lovely young woman jump to ...more
Now that I have read all three books written by this duo of authors, I have to say they are at the top of my list of favorite writing teams. This was one of those good popcorn eating type reads in which you know the main character is probably in danger but you aren't entirely sure what is going to happen and it is pretty fun watching it all unfold.
Normally, I try to give a brief synopsis in my reviews but I really think you are best off not knowing too much ahead of time. Shay is the ...more
This is my second novel by this duo and have to say that this didn't have the spark that Anonymous Girl did. (insert emoji with hands up girl here).
Ok.. yes many of you know that I am EXTREMELY picky with my thrillers. It took me little bit to get hooked into this one. There isn't much I can give you without spoiling things for you.
What I can give you? Hendricks and Pekkanen are a masterful duo ...more
Shay, our main character, witnesses a brutal suicide at the subway station. She tried to stop the young woman from jumping in front of the train but was unsuccessful. The only thing left ...more
Pub date: March 3, 2020
Shay is living in New York with her best friend, who she is secretly in love with, who just told her he has found the love of his life (and it’s not her). She is also estranged from her mother and has few friends, and with a temporary job filling in the gaps, she feels untethered. Until she meets the Moore sisters. Cassandra and Jane are ...more
You Are Not Alone is the third psychological thriller I have read written by this duo. Again, I was compulsively consumed by the story. Shay is living in New York, leading a ho-hum life. One day, she sees a young woman jump in front of the subway. This changes everything for Shay. Oddly, at first, it seems to change this for the better... To say more would be to say too ...more
New York City.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE begins with a bang....or rather a smash that drags the already lonely and depressed 31 year old Shay deeper into the dumps adding fear of going anywhere near the subway to the list. And, as a devoted data-girl, Shay gives us readers interesting tidbits of factual information throughout the story that seems to consume her mind.
"About 50% of people who...more
If you have read my reviews on here, or follow my Instagram, then you know I’m a huge fan of SHORT chapters with multiple POVs. I think it makes the whole story move faster and I love hearing from different characters. You Are Not Alone has 7 different perspectives so I’m here for that!
Honestly, I’m not going to write a big ...more
You Are Not Alone is written by a dynamic duo of a writing team. I've read all their books and have enjoyed them. This time out I'm afraid I may not be setting off fireworks. While You Are Not Alone contained a pretty creative premise, it had some difficulty getting the weight of it off the ground. Far too many details and far too many characters who had to unpack the clutter of their backstories. A bit of heavy lifting while trying to enjoy the storyline.
Shay is a ...more
This was a fairly quick read, a thriller
It was an average book for me, and one that did not stand out amongst the great deal of really outstanding books in this venue that I have read over the past year. I found that I quickly lost interest, and found the characters hard to get attached too. There were really too many main characters, which made the storyline a bit confusing as it bounced around from the past to ...more
We have a cover! Thoughts?
Have I read any of Greer Hendricks' other books?
Will that stop me from doing my darnest to get my hands on this book?
Shay Miller was an isolated and lonely single woman who loved numbers, data, and statistics. Her life revolved around probabilities and opportunities to belong, to be wanted, to feel confident, to be seen and to be admired. Without the self confidence, she constantly hid in the shadows of her charts and graphs. Until...
One day in the subway she witnessed a woman jump into the tracks and kill herself. Intrigued and disturbed by what she ...more
I was drawn into the story and the lives of Shay, Sean, Cassandra and Jane from the beginning.
The chapters are the perfect length and the main and secondary characters are fleshed out and developed precisely to match the unfolding of the plot. This was a fast paced, intriguing, creepy, and dark novel that had me quickly turning pages.
I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy ...more
Thank you NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for this ARC. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
We've all felt a little lonely. We've had moments where we don't or can't relate to others, or don't know how to reach out, and just crave that human connection. Now, imagine you think you have finally found someone who can offer you that—someone who makes you feel warm and happy, and loved. Then they pull wool from over your eyes and you realize that they've been using your ...more

I watch as a woman moves down the subway aisle.
I keep staring at her as she passes my seat. I wonder if she will walk past fifteen others during her lifetime.”
