About My Foolish Heart:

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 Thoughts:

My Foolish Heart is out of my norm. I usually don't read modern day fiction, but when I read about the book, I thought, "Why not?" I have read one other book by Susan May Warren and wasn't too thrilled with it, but I took a chance on this one. I actually enjoyed it. It was not a book that I couldn't put down, but the story line kept me coming back.

Isadora Presley's character is so real, to feel the pain and emotion of suffering from PTSD and what seems to be agoraphobia is unnerving.  The hiding the fact that she is "Miss Foolish Heart" a radio talk show host giving advice to the lovelorn, is quite amusing.  Issy has had no real dates and has a list that her perfect man will have live up to, to be the perfect 10. Funny, that list has not helped her one bit. Nor is it really helping the lovelorn that calls into her show.

Caleb Knight's character is amazing. I felt the compassion he had for Isadora while helping her get through some of her rough moments. And the sweetness of his calling the Miss Foolish Heart show, to ask advice on how to woo his neighbor ~ Isadora, not knowing that they are both the same people.

A cute book to add to any reading list.

I received this book for free in return for my honest opinion from Tyndale House Publishers.
