Sometimes the secrets we keep to protect ourselves can be our undoing.
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?

Susan May Warren has woven an intricate, intriguing story about a young woman, Annalise Decker, who is in the Witness Security Program after testifying again drug lord, Luis Garcia. Her life became established like any normal family life would in Deep Haven. Except she has secrets. Secrets she’s told no one, not even her husband and children. However, secrets usually come back to haunt you one way or another. This happens to Annalise when Garcia jumps parole and strikes out to find and kill her twenty years later.
Susan’s superb suspense book starts out with the typical heart-warming and sometimes tense Decker family issues ranging from cancer, other-side-of-the-track boyfriend, small family arguments, and a husband running for mayor. Nathan’s issues of trying to better himself, Annalise’s multiple activities in the community and family, children in school and doing well academically, and both Nathan and Annalise involved in campaigning for Nathan as Deep Haven’s mayor sets the typical family scene.
Enter Agent Frank Harrison, aka Uncle Frank, and typical family life flies out the door. The chatter between Frank and Annalise raises suspicions, but not enough to divulge the “secret.” Plus, the romance between Frank and Nathan’s mother, Helen Decker, has a life of its own, and Nathan isn’t so sure he likes it! It’s important that an agent stays neutral in his cases, but Frank oversteps those lines and makes a dangerous situation worse.
The author’s multiple twists keep you hanging onto your seat. You think you have it figured out, and she throws a wrench into the plot! It ain’t over till it’s over. Just the way I like a great suspense story!
The issue of God and His loving care is carried through the doubts of Annalise as things keep falling apart. Will she learn to accept God’s love despite the circumstances? She’s been running and hiding for years. Will she run again when the Garcia gets close? Or will she trust God, her agent and her family? You can find out by picking up Susan’s book, You Don’t Know Me. A suspense and romance reader’s delight!
