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 dont 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
At the end of the little story on what happened with each woman before they became part of the circle there is one of the circle that brings them in. Always with saying "I wish there was a way to make him pay" They took revenge or helped out for all the girls and thats how they became part of the circle.(less) (hide spoiler)]
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
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
It only took 22 seconds to dramatically alter Shay Millers life. While she is book smart (and continuously records statistics and data), she is not people smart which leads her to be easily manipulated and taken advantage of. Coincidence after coincidence after coincidence after coincidence occurs (eye roll, please) which coupled with stupid people, puts Shays life in danger. ...more
I held off reading reviews until I finished this one and I would recommend doing the same (mixed reviews from my goodreads friends).
I really enjoyed it from the start. The way the authors left the clues along the path was brilliant! I like to put the puzzle together as I'm reading.
Shay Miller has a thing for data (she even collects it in a special book). I found these excerpts fascinating..... "Some studies show that eating alone is more strongly associated with ...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. Its like putting together a giant puzzle when youre 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 Ive 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 along ...more

I am a huge fan of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. I loved their previous novels An Anonymous Girl and The Wife Between Us. So of course, this novel was immediately added to my to be read ASAP list.
Thirty-one-year-old, Shay Miller is a market researcher. From a very young age, Shay realized that numbers affected the way people saw each other. She then started keeping track of stats in data books (her version of a diary). ...more
But for Shay it goes much deeper. She feels a sense of guiltperhaps more precisely, a connection to this poor woman.
Suddenly Shay finds herself swept up in the womans past life. Even receiving help from the mystery ladys best friends, the highly popular and glamorous Moore sisters. ...more
Nothing is going Shays way. Shes a desperately lonely young woman who is having a bad day that is about to get worse.
As she stands on the subway platform a young woman jumps on the tracks to her death. This sets off a chain of events that ironically leaves Shay thinking life is finally going her way. Glamorous new friends, a new job, new apartment....too good to be true?
Loneliness and isolation makes Shay vulnerable and her dream life will soon turn into a nightmare. I wont ruin the ...more
With a dead-end job and an increasingly lonely life, Shay Miller is unhappy. But things become much worse for her as she watches a stranger (Amanda) commit suicide by throwing herself off in front of a moving train. Emotionally distressed Shay, who becomes fixated on Amanda, tracks down the ...more
Better late than ever, I guess...
Thank you, thank you, thank you, St. Martin's Press!!!
ARC received and I am looking forward to getting started!!
2020 is going to be a great year.
When Shay Miller witnesses something horrific on a subway platform, her life is forever changed and she becomes obsessed trying to find out what happened.
Shay is a loner, with no real family to speak of. To say that her life is not exactly glamorous is an understatement. She works a dead end temp job and shares an apartment in NYC with her best friend who she has had a crush on forever. Too bad he has a new girlfriend!
Enter the Moore Sisters. Shays new Frenemies! If only she ...more
Like the movie, Oceans 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 dont lie.
There is a void in her life that her ...more
Shay Miller doesnt have much going on in her life - shes recently lost her job and is temping, her male roommate, who was her best friend, now has a girlfriend. Then, she witnesses a woman committing suicide by jumping in front of a subway ...more
this is a bit of a cheat, because while it WAS a gift (thanks, michelle ! ♥) it is a gift of < a week, so it hasn't been sitting here triggering my molten-guilt core for very long. don't care, ppbbbllltt!
three and a half in my heart, review to come!
okay, here it is: THIS BOOK: is it fun? ...more
In You Are Not Alone , the latest thriller from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, a witness to a suicide has her entire life upended because of her curiosity.
It seems like just another day: Shay is headed to her office to update her resume. In a crowded subway station, she sees a womans necklace fall. As Shay reaches to pick it up, she sees something even more horrifying: the woman jumps in front of the moving train.
The suicide rocks Shay completely. What would cause this woman, ...more
I am such a super fan of these ladies and was super excited to be able to read an advanced copy of their new book. Having loved their previous two An Anonymous Girl and The Wife Between Us, I was ready for a super thrilling ride for these ladies do not disappoint.
While this book was certainly thrilling, providing much exciting reading time, it was not a five star read for me unfortunately. Perhaps it as the amount of characters that sometimes overwhelmed me or the fact that some of the ...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
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
Yet another win for this writing duo! I believe they have proven that we can always count on a thriller with a unique story line.
Oh Shay...girl you are a hot mess express. You can't help but feel bad for Shay. She is likeable but quirky and nothing is going right for her. She is in love with her roommate Sean...but Sean just asked his girlfriend to move in with them...oh and for Shay to move out. So there is that. She is stuck in a dead end temp job. She is seen as "quirky" ...more
The book begins and we learn that Shay has been having a hard time of it lately. She is secretly in love with her roommate Sean, but he has a girlfriend. She has lost her job and is working temp jobs. To further complicate her life, she witnesses a young woman commit suicide while she is waiting for her train.
Shay's life begins to spiral, she can no longer ride the subway, she begins to panic and experience anxiety when she is near the entrance of the steps leading down, she ...more
A seemingly random act of suicide witnessed by a young woman continues to haunt. Her name is Shay and she becomes obsessed with it, digging into the victim's past life to learn more. With an utter love for statistics, she logs numbers as they pertain. Numbers don't lie, you know. Without quite realizing how it happened, Shay is taken under the protective wings of a sort of sisterhood. What begins as a new lease on life becomes a slow ...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
At first glance, my reaction to the storyline was, "oh, here we go again" After reading some more, I was surprised by our unquie main character Shay whose seems like someone we all know. She has a love for statistics, and I found that an interesting and fun part of the story.
You Are Not Alone starts off with my least favourite storyline with suicide, and we are left wondering why along with our main character Shay. For me, this created little suspense to drive the story forward and ...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
Having read and loved Anonymous Girl and The Wife Between us but this writing duo I knew that picking this book up would be a rollercoaster - and I was not at ...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.”
