    This is one of those books that I tried really hard to like, but failed I think perhaps this wasn t the book for me in the first place I was all set to enjoy it, but for some reason, it just didn t click There was nothing wrong with it that I can actually pin point for disliking it, so I sort of feel bad giving it a low rating The I read, the I disliked the entire propulsion of the plot the fact that the main character was in the Witness Protection Program but has kept it from her husband I think that if you trust this person enough to marry them, you ll trust them enough to tell them about your past and trust that they won t do anything harmful with that information That just sort of felt unrealistic, and once we started jumping around to different character s heads, I had a hard time staying invested in the story It felt cheesy at times to me.I honestly would have just preferred a contemporary family drama I know people are placed in the WPP in real life, but I guess it s just not something I ended up caring to read about, which is not really the fault of the book, but mine.I will definitely try something else by this author, maybe something that just centers on the family dynamics and leaves out the suspense I know this author has many fans, so maybe this book just wasn t the one for me.

    For those who have already fallen in love with Deep Haven and the characters that populate the place, You Don t Know Me is a wonderful addition to the series as it meets expectations for a story of heartfelt character and characters with heart Of the three I ve read, this one follows along the lines of The Shadow of Your Smile rather than My Foolish Heart it has a similar suspense and similar themes regarding falling in love again, forgiving, and truly desiring to know and understand another If you have yet to experience Deep Haven, any of the these three books can be enjoyed as a stand alone You Don t Know Me is part contemporary romance, part romantic suspense but mostly it s a character s study, getting into various characters thoughts and showing why they act the way they do and why they are all in need of grace and love Warren does a fantastic job of creating flawed characters whom the reader can care about and sympathize with And it s not just about one couple it s about multiple couples and family members and friends, showing how much we need others and how much our choices affect others I was especially intrigued by one of the younger secondary characters in this story It s easy for many of the other characters to judge him, but I love the glimpse we get into his heart This particular story is well crafted, well rounded, and boasts its own great cast of characters The storyline is certainly unique, although some of the elements I perceived to be similar to The Shadow of Your Smile along with the rather slow and somber progression of events and the drawn out, painful revelations kept it from being a favorite of mine But in my growing list of experiences with Warren s books, I ve discovered that if you enjoy meaningful and romantic stories with fabulous characters, it doesn t appear that you can go wrong with one of hers With thanks to the publisher for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion, to be shared during the Litfuse Publicity blog tour.

    A gripping novel with the struggle of the human condition woven through the story and characters A home town that draws the reader in and a story I couldn t help but want to see resolved to a happily ever after You Don t Know Me is a gripping marvel of strong storytelling and solid characters that beg to have their story told in the way that has put Warren on the Christian fiction map.I couldn t put this book down No, once I met this Decker family, they became my next door neighbors and I wanted to know them better, watch them succeed Annalise has spent her adult life living a lie and now it s coming back to haunt the family she adores How do you reconcile a past that could harm your family and yet never want to part with your heart s reason to beat The story is richly entwined with real to life characters Subplots that contribute vital motivation for me to continue reading This is definitely one of those stories that pulsed in my throat and wounded my heart when they struggled.It s a story that feels real I m never left unchanged after reading a Warren novel The passion upon the page starts with the story and ends with hope and grace to be found in God s love A marvelous bit of news has become known that another Deep Haven will soon be entertaining readers again and I couldn t be happier This review is my honest opinion Thanks to the publishers through Litfuse for my ARC to review.

    Imagine you re sitting on a plane and the woman sitting next to you is visibly upset You re naturally curious and compassionate, so you ask a question or two How are you and Why are you on this flight The woman says she s on the way to see her daughter, who is going into a federal witness protection program She s saying good bye Forever.That happened to author Susan May Warren, and she turned the experience into a book, You Don t Know Me, the sixth novel set in the fictional Minnesota town of Deep Haven In the close knit town, Annalise Decker is a devoted wife, supportive mother and community activist Her husband is running for mayor, and life, from the outside, looks perfect Then a federal agent shows up with news that could wreck her world the man she testified against 20 years ago is out of jail and seeking revenge And Annalise s carefully guarded secret, that her real name is Deidre O Reilly and she s in the Witness Security Program, is in danger of being made known She has to decide if she ll give up the life she s built on a lie to protect her family or entrust herself to the grace and love of her family and the protection of God.I picked this book up on sale for Kindle before Christmas last year I ve read one other Deep Haven book and a novella, both of which made me eager to pick up another one in the series Though they all take place in Deep Haven, you don t have to read all of them or have read them in order I m not even sure which ones I ve missed, but each time I ve taken the trip to Deep Haven through Warren s novels, I ve not been disappointed.Warren blends suspense, humor, romance and inspiration like a perfectly seasoned soup Her stories are warm, comforting, hearty and keep you coming back for .I cannot imagine what it would be like to say good bye to your family forever, start a new life and then have that life threatened Annalise s choices are not easy and Warren makes her struggle real to the rest of us, who probably will never have to face that kind of choice.I appreciated, too, that this story was borne out of something that really happened to someone through an encounter the author had in real life As a writer, that inspires me, because I see stories everywhere Warren s tale is encouraging in so many ways It s not fluff it s tough.And often than not, I m loving books that aren t afraid to go deep.

    You Don t Know Me is the sixth A Deep Haven Novel Susan May Warren has written over the years It was much different than the first three, which were published years ago The first three were good, but I can tell that Warren s writing has been finely honed since then Which isn t at all surprising since she s a great encourager of aspiring authors like myself, going so far as to make an entire online community of Christian writers called My Book Therapy.I haven t read many of Warren s books lately, but that was because I ve been in my historical romance cocoon during the last few years trying to decide what kind of historical romance I wanted to write myself I do like her books, and I knew going in to this blog tour that I would like whatever it was You Don t Know Me was about strictly based on what a great story crafter she is.You Don t Know Me was poignant And even though it was a contemporary romantic suspense, it had that certain mood that I adore reading I love it when at the beginning of a novel, you just know everything is hopeless everything goes wrong, and it starts piling up so fast the heroine doesn t know what to do, where to turn, how to survive And yet, in the end after many trials and heartaches she gets everything she s always wanted Perfection.I was given a paperback copy of this book by Tyndale House in order to read and give my honest review for a LitFuse Publicity Blog Tour I give Susan May Warren s You Don t Know Me 4 Stars.

    Review on Don t Know Me is the sixth Deep Haven novel, but the first I ve read I was able to follow along easily and thoroughly enjoyed reading it I ve read many of Susan May Warren s previous books, and I don t think I ve ever been disappointed with any of them I found it very interesting that the main character in this book Annalise is a member of the Witness Security Program and how she never told her husband that in all the years of their marriage.I loved the characters Annalise, Nathan, Frank, and Tucker were probably my favorites, but I liked almost all of the main characters.There was one thing I didn t like in this book On page 156, Pastor Dan says I have a word from the Lord for you today, church I don t know who this is directed to, but someone needs to hear it He then goes on to say things like, I love you , says the Lord I see things, and I know you, and I love you Period I know stuff about you that you don t even think I know, and yet I love you I don t like when books say that God said something that s not in the Bible It s one of my pet peeves.You Don t Know Me s story was really good and I look forward to reading Deep Haven books in the future I recommend it if you enjoy books with a little suspense and some romance I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion which I ve done All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    have not read all of the Deep Haven novels by Susan May Warren, but I have now read three of them My Foolish Heart, The Shadow of Your Smile, and this one Oh, and a novella that took place in Deep Haven Hook, Line, Sinker.The premise of this novel drew me in immediately, much like the amnesia story in The Shadow of Your Smile I was fascinated to see how a story of someone in Witness Protection would play out I really enjoyed the beginning of the book, too getting to know the characters and falling back into the setting of Deep Haven, Minnesota it was interesting and intriguing.Towards the middle, however, I started to realize that this book was not going to focus on the action part of the book as much as the emotions part of the book Now, I am not against exploring characters and their thoughts and feelings sometimes this makes for a really good read but other times I just get too bogged down in it And also, because of the feeling oriented plot, when that part of the story came to a head, everything just seemed to spin unrealistically out of control.Read my complete review here
