From the author’s website:
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?

        Susan May Warren does it again! The lives of four people each with their own private pain are woven together using the common threads of small-town life and a desire for resolution of inner suffering. Issy, the former high-school football coach’s daughter, suffers from PTSD. The crippling fear and panic attacks keep her locked within the confines of her own house and yard. Caleb, a physically and emotionally injured war vet, fights for the job of the new football coach while trying to impress the girl next door. Seb, the former high-school football hero, returns to town hoping to score the job of the new coach and forgiveness from the girl he wronged so many years ago. Lucy, the owner of World’s Best Donuts, fights losing her business and the emotions stirred up by the returning hero of her high school days. Each one seeks peace and love. Each one knows that only God can give the victory. With His help, they each find healing in My Foolish Heart.

         I enjoyed all the football discussions. It makes me eager for autumn! The dog adds a touch of humor, but also is significant in the development of two of the characters. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great story, written well, with a soul-stirring theme.
