I’ve been reading a lot lately (as you may have noticed). Several of my recent reads have been Christian fiction . . . and, let’s be honest, some of that genre is better than others. I’m happy to say that most of the books I’ve checked out (mostly literally, as I am a big fan of the library) have been the good kind.

First off is My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren. I love pretty much everything Warren writes, and this was no exception. Here’s the gist of the book:

Isadora Presley is {secretly} Miss Foolish Heart, the star host of a syndicated talk show offering millions advice on love. Her new neighbor, Caleb Knight, is a war veteran and a hopeful for the town’s high school football coach. In a weak desperate random moment, he calls into Issy’s show and sparks fly – both on the air and across the fence.

The catch? Neither one realizes they’re talking to each other on the radio. And, oh yeah, they’re hiding other things, too.

Thankfully, these characters don’t play silly games and the story is heartwarming without being cheesy. And it reminded me of You’ve Got Mail, which is never a bad thing.

You can read an excerpt yourself at Susan May Warren’s website. Or get a copy of your own, which I recommend.

A few other books I’ve read lately (yes, this – as usual – does explain why I am behind on laundry and have a very large stack of papers sitting on my desk. Again.):

About the book: My Foolish heart

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?

I was provided a copy of My Foolish Heart by Litfuse Publicity Group, but all opinions are my own. As usual.
