Thank you to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Now you have to know, Susan May Warren is one of my favorite authors. This is the newest books in one of my favorite series. She completely captures life in a small town in northern MN. I love that!!
This book rang true for me in several ways. The first was, even in a small town, you don't know what happens behind closed doors. It may seem everyone knows everybody's secrets but in reality people keep secrets. I loved that this book pointed out the dangers of keeping secrets between spouses. It seems that in our culture people seem to think on should keep secrets from their spouse. I love that "big" and "small" secrets are shown to be equally destructive.
I enjoyed the "behind the scenes" look of the "bad boy" in the story. I feel that it is important for us to get to know people before making judgments. It adds a whole other perspective in the story.
Overall, this is a great read. I really enjoyed it. So much so that I finished it weeks before my review was due! I couldn't put it down. Now, when is the next book coming out?
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?
