My Review of You Don't Know Me:
In You Don’t Know Me readers will walk with characters going through various life situations, from a person that holds some secrets from the past, to an older woman who gives dating a chance again even though she isn’t sure she can trust her date, to a man who doesn’t want his mom dating someone he doesn’t trust, to a potential mayor’s wife, to people that are good at lying, to someone who might have a terminal illness. In some cases this story will leave readers wondering what will happen next and what the outcome of the life situations that they are reading about will be.
The book summary on the back cover indicates that Annalise Decker is probably the main character…but it didn’t seem to me that she was the only main character that this book focused on. It seemed to me like there were many main characters in this book. Every once in awhile I will get lost in the storyline of a book, whether it is because my mind got lost in the details of a certain writing style or whether I have just lost focus because of what is going on around me. This was a story I got lost in. There was a brief description in the back of the book about what inspired the author to write this book. It would have been beneficial for me to read that first, but now I might decide to check to see if there is an author’s note included before I start reading some other books in the future. Just because I got lost in this story doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good story, which is why I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars, taking into consideration that if I wrote a good book that somebody got lost in that is the rating I would want someone to give to me.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
More 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?
