My Foolish Heart
by Susan May Warren
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: Any time I pick up a book by Susan May Warren I know that I’m in for a good read – and this book was no exception. Ms. Warren’s characters always have depth and are more often than not people that I’d like to meet and get to know. But even more than that – they are FUN!
In this story the two main characters both struggle with their “disability” – she has PTSD and he is back stateside from Iraq. I knew very little about PTSD prior to reading this book and Ms. Warren dealt with this in a manner that made me not only understand it, but I really felt for Issy. And Caleb’s desire to prove himself without relying on a sympathy vote was both commendable and frustrating.
As they both get to know each other better without really knowing the other I found myself smiling and wondering when they would catch on. It really is a fun book (did I already mention that???) and one that I almost hated to see come to an end.
A 4 out of 5 rating.
