Blog Tour: My Foolish Heart (Review)

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?

What I Thought
Light, fun and well, slightly different.

Those were my first impressions of My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren, the newest release in her Deep Haven series.

The book takes the humorous, yet slightly painful at times look at what happens when a young woman with lots of romantic advice has a successful radio talk show - all from the safe, but limiting confines of her house.

I love Warren's writing style. It's witty with the right balance of serious and humor. Through realistic characters, she creates a novel that real people can relate to, as well as enjoy.

On the scale of one to five, with five being the highest, I give this book a solid four. One thing I like about it, is that while it's a part of the Deep Haven series, it can be read as a stand alone novel. It can also be read by a variety of ages - including teens.

If you are looking for a fun summer read, that will actually make you think a bit (it's not just mind candy), then pick up My Foolish Heart. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
