From the Back Cover

When it comes to love, sometimes you have to be a little foolish. Unknown to her quaint town of Deep Haven, Isadora Presley is the star host of My Foolish Heart, a popular syndicated talk radio show. From her home studio, she gives listeners advice on romance . . . even though she’s never had a date.

It’s not that she doesn’t want to, but since a tragic accident took her mother’s life, panic attacks have trapped her inside her small neighborhood. And though she always reminds listeners that their perfect love could be right next door, it can’t possibly be true for her. Especially when a new neighbor moves in. Sure, he’s handsome, but with his unruly dog and Neanderthal manners, Caleb Knight is the last man she’d ever fall for.

To Issy, love isn’t worth the risk. Until she starts to have feelings for a caller―a man she’s never even met but finds honest, charming, and sensitive. A man she doesn’t realize lives right next door.

Format: Paperback
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.

I loved this book by Susan May Warren. It takes place in Deep Haven, Minnesota. It is the story of a young woman who is trying to rebuild her life after a terrible car accident takes her mother's life. She dies in her arms after they were both trapped in a burning car. Her father was also injured and has become a quadraplegic. Isadora Presley has PSTD from the accident and also has panic attacks and agorophobia. Her world is limited to her home and yard. She has recently been able to jog around the block and walk to the library.

Her best friend, Lucy, owns the donut shop and checks on Issy to be sure she has food or anything else she needs.

A newcomer to Deep Haven, Caleb Knight moves in next door to Issy and is in a competition between himself and Seb Brewster to see who will be the new football coach. Caleb is hiding his injuries suffered in Iraq.

This story of healing for all the characters, Issy, Caleb, Seb and Lucy could not be put down. I read it in one afternoon. I highly recommend this book.

One of my favorite Susan May Warren novels :-) Probably because Isadora Presely is so real and deep. I wanted to crawl under the piano and comfort her!
Getting back to hook, Suzie creates another amazing hook with a Issy as an online romance therapist who's never even fallen in love herself! And Caleb, her new next door neighbor, battles not only his possible physical limitations, but the star quarterback, for the new head coaching position.
What is it about Deep Haven that I love? And in the fall? Suzie uses the setting as another character so as you read, you FEEL like you are in Minnesota in the early fall as the leaves are turning color and the air is turning brisk.
