Susan May Warren It Had To Be You
It Had To Be You by Susan May Warren was an amazing book.  I read this book in a few days and after I got a chapter into the book I didn’t want to put it down. I love the authors writing and her characters. In this book you follow along with Eden as she tries to keep her brother Owen out of trouble all while not living her own life. I loved everything about the book and I was sad when it was over because even though it was a long book I was sad to see the end come. I loved the ending for the most part but I hated to see the story end. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series so that I can check in with these characters again.

It Had to be You

About The Book

A Christensen Family Novel.

Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger brother Owen’s cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing obits—and starting to fear she doesn’t have the chops to land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.
Jace has built his career on the infamous reputation of his aggressive behavior—on and off the ice. Now at a crossroads about his future in hockey, that reputation has him trapped. And the guilt-trip he’s getting from Eden Christiansen isn’t making things any easier. But when Owen’s carelessness leads to a career-threatening injury and Eden stumbles upon a story that could be her big break, she and Jace are thrown together . . . and begin to wonder if they belong on the same team after all.

You Don’t Know Me

You Don't Know Me


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?


My Review

I love reading books by this author but I have to admit that this book wasn’t my favorite.  It is a good  book and definitely worth reading but it isn’t one that I would pick up on my own and just start reading.  You find out shortly into the book that Annalise the main  character in the book is in the witness protection program and that her husband who doesn’t know about her past is running for mayor.  The first thing that I thought when I found out all this is that who ever she is hiding from is going to find her and she is either going to have to run or face him.  The writing is great and her writing does keep you interested but I couldn’t get to into the book because I saw where it was going to go.  I am for sure going to read more of her books because like I said she is an amazing writer and I have loved the other books of hers that I have read.
