From the publisher:
Unknown to her tiny town of Deep Haven, Isadora Presley spends her nights as Miss Foolish Heart, the star host of a syndicated talk radio show. Millions tune in to hear her advice on dating and falling in love, unaware that she’s never really done either. Issy’s ratings soar when it seems she’s falling in love on-air with a caller. A caller she doesn’t realize lives right next door.

Caleb Knight served a tour of duty in Iraq and paid a steep price. The last thing he wants is pity, so he hides his disability and moves to Deep Haven to land his dream job as the high school football coach. When his beautiful neighbor catches his eye, in a moment of desperation he seeks advice from My Foolish Heart, the show that airs before his favorite sports broadcast.

Before he knows it, Caleb finds himself drawn to the host—and more confused than ever. Is his perfect love the woman on the radio . . . or the one next door?


My Review:
I have three things to say about this book - football, donuts, and romance!!!! If you love any of these elements or like me, all three, this is a must read story. Susan May Warren has never disappointed me and I've read a lot of her books. I don't think anyone has her style and ability to write a serious WWII romance, then write a contemporary mystery and return to the fun contemporary style that I've grown to love with a book like My Foolish Heart.

This is my first time visiting Deep Haven but it will most definitely not be my last. Everything about this book captured my heart, from the dog with two names to the boy next door hero with a gridiron loving heart of gold. The details in this story are amazing as well. I dare you to open this book and not smell the donuts frying or hear the crunch of football pads. It could be the insane love I have for donuts that I mentioned above but I think it's the gifted Ms. Warren that's to blame for making me feel like I could step out the door and into World's Best Donuts. What a world!

However excellent a job an author does at making one feel as if they've visited their fictional worlds a story is not worth reading unless the characters who populate the town are believable as well. I'm happy to say one dimensional and bland characters are not a problem here. Issy, our reclusive radio host is sweet and of course romantic but she's far from perfect. One can't help but really feel connected to Issy and her fears. At some point in time I'm sure we've all wanted to crawl under the piano and hide from the world. As for Caleb Knight, he's definitely got my vote for title of "Knight in Shining Armor!" He himself is not without issues both emotionally and physically but he's such a great compliment to Isadora.

All in all Issy and Caleb make for a winning team and My Foolish Heart is a book worthy of championship status on any "keeper" shelf. I highly recommend this sigh-inducing romance to Susan May Warren fans and Christian romance readers everywhere. Who knows? maybe you can get your hubby or boyfriends to read this one!
