Book Review~My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

by adustyframe ~ June 9th, 2011


I found Susan May Warren by doing a book review and I’ve enjoyed all her books so far. (Haven’t read them all~)

This book will be a great summer read for you. Perfect for lounging in a chair in your back yard and drinking some tea!

This story is set in Deep Haven, Minnesota which sounds like a perfectly lovely place! I’d like to visit myself–well I did in the book!

Issy suffers from agoraphobia and does not leave her home. However, she hosts a radio show advising others how to have a great love life. Problem is she doesn’t have one–she doesn’t leave the house!

I enjoyed the characters and story line as well as Susan May Warren’s sharing Biblical truths in a non-preachy, non-cheesey fashion!

I am not lying that I really had fun reading this book–I ordered the other 3 from the series on paperback swap and almost done reading them.

About the book: 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?
