Shay witnesses a woman jump in front of an on-coming subway train. Shay is so traumatized by witnessing the suicide that she cannot get near the subway. Shay finds out who the woman was and attends a memorial for her. At the memorial, Shay meets Cassandra and Jane Moore, who run a successful PR company. They are everything Shay is not – confident, successful, loved. Shay wants to become a part of their clique.
The Moore sisters want Shay to be part of their click because they have a secret and they need a fall-guy. They start manipulating Shay. Pretty soon, she looks like Amanda. Is Shay a crazy stalker or is she being set up?
You Are Not Alone is the third thriller by Greer Hendricks and Sara Pekkanan. I really enjoyed the first two. This one, I enjoyed. Just not as much. I thought the plot took a really long time to build. However, the plot twists and ending were satisfying. I enjoyed the book enough to finish it even when I thought it was moving too slowly.
Other than the slow building plot, the book was pretty good. I liked Shay. I felt kind of sorry for her in that she has little in the way of family or friends to lean on. But I did like her toughness. I liked her naivete. Though she did not want to believe what was going on, she was tougher than I thought she’d be. If you like thrillers with a slow-burn and a good pay-off, you’ll like this book.
