I Think I Might Be Craving Donuts... ~ My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren ~ Review

I. Loved. This. Book.

I’ve read a lot of books by the powerhouse storyteller Susan May Warren and I’ve loved a great many of them. No, no, no, I LOVED this book. Because I honestly believe, “My Foolish Heart” is her best yet.

The characters are so three-dimensional they pop from the page. Isadora and Caleb were my favorites, but the secondary characters are so real. For an aspiring writer, Susan is a tour in all that makes a book great and for the reader, they will delight in the hard work put into the story and what makes it so perfect.

The story is told between the lines of great dialogue, the characters are rife with struggles and personality. Some of their actions made me laugh out loud and groan for the growth they still needed to make. Caleb and Issy are so loveable I ached to see them succeed in each of their chosen ventures. Caleb is the kind of hero I hope to fall for.

Setting speaks for the character’s emotions and as Issy and Caleb are pushed toward each other, the sparks fly fast. I held my breath and pages were hot beneath my touch as the climate pushed to the apex.

I. Loved. This. Book. It packs a beautiful romance with characters that struggle, laugh and love through the pages. I did not want this book to end. My heart aches to return to the setting among friends and a love that surrounds me in the town of Deep Haven.

I think I might be craving donuts…

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to Litfuse publicity for my copy to review.

    I've never read anything by Susan before, so would it be better if I read the other three books in this series first, before reading this one?
