You are Not Alone (Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen)

I've been a really big fan of the writing partnership of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. While I preferred their previous books (An Anonymous Girl and The Wife Between Us) more than this one, I was still very engrossed in You are Not Alone.

Shay Miller is the primary narrator, but we also get perspectives from other characters. One day, Shay witnesses a suicide at the subway station and becomes obsessed with finding out more about the woman who died. This brings her into the world of Cassandra and Jane Moore, glamorous sisters who work in public relations. Cassandra and Jane take Shay under their wing, helping her with everything from finding an apartment to getting a makeover to bringing her into their circle of friends. But are these sisters really as nice as they seem or is there an ulterior motive for their kindness?

I found a few plot points and coincidences to be a little far-fetched, but I still raced to the end to find out what would happen. Hendricks and Pekkanen are a talented writing team -- if you're looking for exciting new mysteries, anything by them would be a great choice.
