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?
Do yourself a favour. See that link that says “buy this book”? Click on it now. This book needs to be on everyone’s summer reading list. Don’t be foolish and let this book pass on by. The characters and the story will pull on your heart strings while simultaneously tickling your funny bone.
I can never characterize Susie’s books by one sub-genre because she skillfully integrates so many qualities; it wouldn’t be fair to put her books in a box. How do you describe a romantic, comedic, dramatic, introspective, discerning, book? Apparently with a shopping list of adjectives that still doesn’t cut it. So again, see that link? Get clicking.
I am so happy that Susie takes us back to Deep Haven-it is my book home away from home. Seriously. The Deep Haven books were amongst the first inspirational fiction novels I read, so it (and Susie) hold a very special place in my [foolish] heart. One complaint I do have about this setting is all the wonderful culinary delights Susie describes that unavoidably give me cravings that I can’t fill. How many times can a girl read about the world’s best doughnuts and still be expected to withstand temptation?
I saw myself reflected in both Issy and Lucy. Issy’s Top 10 Future Husband List? Been there, done that (and occasionally revise). Lucy’s self-esteem? Hello teen years and early adulthood! Issy’s sarcastic remarks? I will keep a cap on my arsenal. These two have a friendship that everyone woman desires and needs. But, Issy has one thing that I would like (but a non-fiction, living and breathing form)-Caleb. …Ok, revived from my swoon.
To sum up:
Foolish = not reading this book.
