You Don’t Know Me – Book Review


Wow! This was an awesome book! I read it in four days, from Friday afternoon non-stop to Monday morning. You Don’t Know Me by Susan May Warren is a wonderful book! I want to say this is a thriller because it had that anticipation aspect to it. But you could also say it is a mystery novel or christian novel. Whatever you want to call it, it was great! It was one of those books you just can’t put down.

The story is about a woman, Annalise Decker, who is the perfect mom and wife and always active in the community. But..she’s not who she says she is. A long time ago, she was Deidre O’Reilly. Deidre testified against a horrible man and got placed in the Witness Security Program. Deidre/Annalise was placed into a quite small town and became the woman she is today.

Twenty years later, her past comes back to haunt her and her family.

I love the writing style of Susan May Warren and will checking out her other books soon!


More about the book:
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?
