More About the Author

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I'm a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I'm an adventurer -- having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that's why my characters can't sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another -- they're too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.

Here's my "Official" Bio.

With over 1 million books sold, critically acclaimed novelist Susan May Warren is the Christy, RITA and Carol award-winning author of over forty-five novels with Tyndale, Barbour, Steeple Hill and Summerside Press. Known for her compelling plots and unforgettable characters, Susan has written contemporary and historical romances, romantic-suspense, thrillers, rom-com and Christmas novellas.

With books translated into eight languages, many of her novels have been ECPA and CBA bestsellers, were chosen as Top Picks by Romantic Times, and have won the RWA's Inspirational Reader's Choice contest and the American Christian Fiction Writers Book of the Year award. She's a three time RITA finalist and an eight time Christy Finalist.

Of her books, Publisher's Weekly has written, "Warren lays bare her characters' human frailties, including fear, grief, and resentment, as openly as she details their virtues of love, devotion, and resiliency. She has crafted an engaging tale of romance, rivalry, and the power of forgiveness."

And Library Journal adds, "Warren's characters are well-developed and she knows how to create a first rate contemporary romance..."

Susan is also a nationally acclaimed writing coach, teaching at conferences around the nation and winner of the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Mentor of the Year award. She loves to help people launch their writing careers and is the founder of www.MyBookTherapy.com and www.LearnHowtoWriteaNovel.com, a writing website that helps authors get published and stay published. She's also the author of the popular writing method, The Story Equation.

I have always been a fan of Susan May Warren's novels so I was happy for the opportunity to review My Foolish Heart. This one just may be my favorite one yet.

After a devastating accident that took her mother's life, Isadora Presley suffers such severe panic attacks that she rarely leaves her home due to her fear of a meltdown. She secretly hosts a radio show from her home giving romantic tips to her callers. For some reason a new caller, Boy Next Door, touches her heart and she finds herself fantasizing about him often. At the same time she is very attracted to her new next door neighbor Caleb Knight who apparently has a few problems of his own.

Caleb has moved to Deep Haven hoping to coach the high school football team and prove to himself that he can live a full life despite the severe injuries he suffered in Iraq. Hiding his greatest disability, Caleb bravely enters the competition for the coaching position. Accidentally overhearing one of Issy's broadcasts, he uncharacteristically calls for advice. From that point on he is hooked and can't resist the attraction of the sympathetic hostess to whom he pours out all his secrets, not knowing that she and Issy are the same person. Through his deep faith, Caleb is able to reach out to Issy and help her find her way back to a life of freedom. And in the process, he finds hope and healing for himself.

I thought the plot of My Foolish Heart was quite clever and enjoyed reading about both the on air and real life relationships between Issy and Caleb. The inclusion of the dog "Duncan/Roger" and his escapades added whimsical entertainment and the inclusion of Issy's best friend Lucy and returning football hero Seb is a special bonus. An inviting small town setting, down-to-earth characters, and a warm and witty narrative make My Foolish Heart a joy to read. I would recommend this book without any reservation.

So I have to admit that there's just something about Susan May Warren's novels that make me spend insane amounts of time reading. I swear, every single time that I pick up one of her books, I finish reading it within a span of 24 hours. And the only reason it takes me that long is because there's cumbersome things like sleep and work that prevent me from reading it all in one session. Sigh... life is so tough! ;)
But in all seriousness, she is SUCH an amazing author. There's just something about her characters that makes it impossible to resist them. I mean, how could you not fall in love with the Noble siblings, or PJ Sugar, or the residents of Deep Haven? Oh my goodness- especially the cast of characters in Warren's newest Deep Haven novel, My Foolish Heart.
I also have to confess that when I found out that there would be more Deep Haven novels (besides the three that she wrote a few years back), I kind of freaked. In fact- I might have screamed (it was a happy scream), I might have babbled on and on to my Mom about how happy I was, and I might have even done a happy dance. Yeah- THAT'S how good her books are!
My Foolish Heart centers on the lives of Isadora Presley and Caleb Knight. Issy is a young woman who is so crippled by panic attacks that she is trapped within her neighborhood. Unbeknownst to her small community, she hosts a radio talk show from her home, where she gives romance advice, even though she herself has never been on a single date. And while she's always reminding her listeners that their perfect love might just be next door, she knows that isn't possibly true for her, especially when the towns handsome new football coach moves in next door.
Caleb Knight has recently returned home to the states after a tour of duty in Iraq, in which he paid highly.

This was a pretty good book. Issy is a 'radio therapist'. She has a show and as Miss Foolish Heart has helped a lot of people work through relationship issues. She hasn't told anyone in town, except her father and best friend, what she does...of course part of the reason is because she cannot leave her house. Her mother was killed in a horrible car accident and it left Issy scared for life. Caleb has come to New Haven to coach football. He is a man transformed and now just wants to help transform boys into young men. He doesn't want his injury to be a factor so he keeps it a secret. Issy and Caleb meet and now the relationship expert may have to change all her rules...
There were a lot of good characters in this book. Issy is a wonderful girl who has some major issues she is trying to overcome. She is making progress one day at a time. Caleb is dealing with his own issues. Losing a leg in Iraq has left him with something to prove. The two of them together are a great pair. I had issues with the extra story overshadowing this one. It is about Seb and Lucy and some major issues they have that goes back 10 years. Their story was interesting and both relationships were a bit twisted.
I rate this a 3/5. It was an ok read but was just missing something for me.

Thank you to Litfuse for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

I sat down and read this book straight through, beginning to end. I don't think I even got up to get another cup of coffee. Some random observations, in no particular order:

* Susan depicts 'Minnesotan' wonderfully. If you have never spent time in or near Minnesota -- outside of The Cities (that'd be Minneapolis & St. Paul, by the way) -- you may not catch it all. There are just so many little touches that made me feel 'at home' while reading this story. These are people like the people I grew up with, they felt real. I think they still would feel like "real" people, even if you've never been to Minnesota.
* Susan depicts high school football incredibly well too. I think especially small-town high school football. You can tell she relied on her sons and their coach for assistance in writing the football aspects -- everything just rings true. This isn't a "football story," so don't shy away from it if you don't like football! Football plays a role though, and it is well-written.

The story has multiple plot lines, and all of them were interesting to me.

* There are the two love triangles mentioned above (Issy/Miss Foolish Heart falling for a caller but also falling for her next door neighbor, and Caleb falling for his neighbor and then also for Miss Foolish Heart).
* But there is also Issy coming to terms with reintegrating back into life after a horrific accident that has left her emotionally confined to her home and prone to panic attacks. Agoraphobia is what she suffers from, which is the fear of having a panic attack in public. Issy's stress is portrayed so realistically, I would find myself feeling a bit panicked when she got into "scary" situations (like going to a grocery store).
