About the Book (from

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 am a big fan of Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven series and her newest novel did not disappoint. Every time I read one of her Deep Haven b0oks, I fall in love with the community all over again. It makes me wish I could move there, at least until I remember it’s in Minnesota and this California girl doesn’t really care to experience any Minnesota winters. 🙂

I really like that these books seems usually follow a love story within a marriage. It’s one thing to fall in love with someone new and be swept off your feet, but it’s a completely different thing to fall in love with the same person over and over again. As a married woman, it’s nice to read a book that involves this sort of romantic love story. There is also a bit of mystery and suspense making the book even more interesting and entertaining. I especially loved reading the story of the Decker family in You Don’t Know Me; they were very relatable and interesting. The story showed hope for a marriage even when it looked like the world was falling apart, it also showed commitment and staying true to one’s vows no matter what….even when you question whether those vows were actually legal. (You’ll see what I mean when you read the book!)

I’d highly recommend this book to fans of Christian fiction. I can’t what to see what other stories the community of Deep Haven has to tell!
