You probably know someone like Shay Miller.
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 their life.But what they really want is hers.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this third collaboration between the Hendricks’ and Pekkanens’ duo, You Are Not Alone, the authors deliver a story just as spectacular as the two previous contributions to the literary world. They have mastered the art of creating a psychological thriller that leaves the reader wanting for nothing. I don’t think I could have ever guessed what would come from the event that draws Shay into the world of the Moore sisters.

Shay is considered a no-nonsense, analytical thinker. But her heart and emotions still get the better of her, and when she finds herself without a solid job and feeling her hopes for romance with her friend and roommate dashed, she becomes highly susceptible to manipulation. Drawn to Jane and Cassandra Moore and their tight circle, this loner finally feels like she’s found a place. But nothing is what it seems and Shay is so thoroughly deceived, there is simply no way for her to see the trap being set. We are exposed through the truth as we get both Shay’s and the Moore sisters POV’s.

The story unfolds at a perfect pace, leaving me fearful for Shay and in shock of the extent of the malice held by this small group of women. I have to say I connected to the Moore sisters on one level, and I think a lot of readers will. They are agents of justice and for me, I am all about the type of transgressions they are focused on being made right. But, I felt for Shay as she is pulled in and becomes collateral damage. It simply goes against their principles, but they are short-sighted (at best). While this is a key point in the plotline, what motivates the sisters will also become their downfall.

I’ve come to expect the unexpected, but the authors threw me for one than one loop. As events unfold there’s just always one missing piece of information, and it’s always something that could never have been anticipated, which makes for an engrossing and fun read. I was anxious to find out if Shay found any peace as I would guess most readers would. The only thing I’m left fearing is the year-long wait for another book by these ladies. 5 stars and recommendation!
