My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren Book Review/Giveaway

My Foolish Heart (Deep Haven)

Issy is Miss Foolish Heart and Caleb is BoyNextDoor in Susan May Warren's new book My Foolish Heart (Deep Haven).  Issy suffers from great psychological issues since the death of her mother and having her father confined to a hospital bed.  Her only outlet is her online radio show that she broadcasts from her home unbeknownst to the community of Deep Haven.  She specializes in giving advice for love relationships even though she never had one herself.  Things get complicated when a single, good looking football coach moves in next door.  He wants to get to know Issy and ends up taking advice from her radio show, but doesn't figure out right away that it's her.  Caleb, who is wanting to land the coaching job, also has a secret.  Will Miss Foolish Heart and BoyNextDoor discover how to truly love despite their weaknesses by trusting God?

I was very excited to read Susan May Warren's new book since I read the other three a long time ago.  The first thing that struck me was the description of the town that was the setting for this book.  It is very similar to the town I visit every summer on Minnesota's North Shore!  I really enjoyed the interactions of Caleb and Issy as he was trying to court her through the advice from her radio show.  I was a little thrown off by the extra "love story" between two of Issy's friends and the play by play football game at the end which dwindled my interest.  And somehow I wasn't impressed with the ending, but most of the book held my interest and taught me a lot about overcoming my weaknesses.
