Book Blog Tour: My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

Paperback, Fiction, 354 pages

About the book: 

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 Review:
I was excited to participate in this book tour as a tour stop for My Foolish Heart.  Having not read any of the other books in the Deep Haven series (this being the 4th), I didn't know what to expect.  When I received the book, I couldn't wait to begin reading, after seeing the inviting cover.  Having just finished up my children's book review for April and May, it was nice to return to reviewing and reading adult books.  This book is classified as an inspiration/Christian book, but after reading it, I would stay this book would be of interest to anyone who likes fiction.  Susan May Warren writes about two characters who are scarred emotionally and physically and how they deal with these issues.  I loved how Susan brought the reader in from the start and made you relate in some way to the characters and their flaws and personal struggles.  I found myself rooting for them from the start.  Everyone has their own insecurities, but it was nice to see how Susan played out these characters in her book. 

Overall, this was a quick and easy read.  I would definitely recommend this book for a summer beach read, or for those who have enjoyed the other books in the Deep Haven series.  I will be checking them out, as a result of reading and enjoying this book.
