You Don’t Know Me~{Book Review}


You Don’t Know Me~Susan May Warren

About the Book
A Deep Haven Novel
Sometimes the secrets we keep to protect ourselves can be our undoing.
To all who know her, Annalise Decker is a model wife and mother. She’s a permanent member of the PTA, never misses a sporting event, and is constantly campaigning for her husband’s mayoral race.

No one knows that Annalise was once Deidre O’Reilly, a troubled young woman whose testimony put a dangerous criminal behind bars. Relocated through the Witness Security Program to the quaint harbor town of Deep Haven, Deidre received a new identity and a fresh start, which began when she fell in love with local real estate agent Nathan Decker.

Twenty years later, Annalise couldn’t be more unprepared for her past to catch up with her. When Agent Frank Harrison arrives with news that the man she testified against is out on parole and out for revenge, Annalise is forced to face the consequences of her secrets. Will she run again, or will she finally find the courage to trust those she loves most with both her past and her future?

My Thoughts

I just love these stories set in Deep Haven, Minnesota. In Susan Mae Warren’s most recent book You Don’t Know Me did not disappoint!

Deidre O’Reilly ends up in the Witness Security Program after testifying against a dangerous drug dealer. She has been Annalise Decker for 20 years and has a wonderful family and life in Deep Haven.

Now the criminal she helped put behind bars is out of prison and has jumped parole and is feared to be looking for Annalise. Her secrets could not only put her husband and children in danger, but tear her family apart.

I just loved this book! The town of Deep Haven is so quaint and picturesque and yet there is danger lurking and difficult decisions that need to be made that will affect Annalise and her family forever. The story jumps right in with secrets and suspense! I love the way the author tells the story not just from Annalise’s point of view but from other members of her family.

Annalise starts to question the decisions she has made. Did she include God in those decisions? Can she trust God now? What is the right decision that will protect her and keep her family together?
