September 21, 2012 Deep Haven

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 take on this book:
I have read several of the books in the Deep Haven series by Susan May Warren and always look forward to the next installment. "You Don't Know Me" is a gripping saga that kept me turning the pages to see what would ultimately happen.

Annalise Decker seems to have the perfect life, she is the mother of three children, Jason, Colleen who is sixteen and Henry age eleven. Her husband Nathan hopes to become the next mayor of Deep Haven. Annalise is used to keeping secrets though,in fact she has been keeping a secret for twenty years, but secrets have a way of finding us out, and Annalise's past is about to meet up with the present, which might put her family in jeopardy. What choices will Annalise make to protect her family?
What a totally appropriate title for this story. Imagine keeping a secret from everyone you know and love for twenty years. That's what Annalise had to do, she had no choice, who she was ceased to exist when she became Annalise. It was so easy to see the love she felt for her family in the choices she was willing to make. Ms. Warren really brings the characters to life in this story, the children seem so very realistic, Colleen seemed to be going thru problems typical to what sixteen year old girls would experience. I really enjoyed the family feel of this book, it was easy to connect with each character, while also experiencing the suspense and mystery that surrounded Annalise's past. A contemporary story, where we have family drama, a bit of romance, along with a dash of mystery and suspense, with a strong message of forgiveness woven in. While this book is part of the Deep Haven series it can easily be read as a stand alone work. I always enjoy the small town feel of the stories set in Deep Haven and look forward to my next visit there. Recommended!
