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?

Warren, a former missionary to Russia and the author of 30 novels, offers a lighthearted, punchy story about two wounded souls who find love and a new lease on life over radio airwaves. Isadora Presley is Miss Foolish Heart, a radio talk show host, by night, and no one but her closest friend and producer knows it. Scarred emotionally by seeing her mother die in a car accident, Issy has panic attacks whenever she contemplates stepping outside the bounds of her yard. When Caleb Knight moves next door, Issy is cautiously curious and soon begins to fall for her handsome neighbor. Caleb has his own inner demons to fight after a harrowing stint in Iraq. Coming between these two characters is Miss Foolish Heart herself. Warren's novel nicely balances the funny and realistic. (May)
