My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

My Foolish Heart (Deep Haven)

Recently, I read the first of Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven Series, Happily Ever After. It was delightful and I feel in love with the little town of Deep Haven in Minnesota. My Foolish Heart is the fourth in the series. The town has been struggling with the tragic accident that turned their winning football coach into a quadriplegic, took the life of his wife, and has trapped their daughter, Issy, in her home with agoraphobia. A Caleb Knight moves in next door to Issy and the adventure to freedom begins.


Caleb is trying out for the position of football coach, but is hiding the fact that he wears a prosthetic leg due to an injury while serving in Iraq. He and Issy have many misadventures that bring them together so that they can each find the freedom that God desires of them. While Issy and Caleb have to work through their separate pasts, Lucy McGuire and Seb Brewster have to come to terms with the past they created together. Lucy, Issy’s best friend and the owner of The World’s Greatest Donuts, is struggling with her business; she has to turn to her high school boyfriend, Seb Brewster, for help.

My Foolish Heart is well written with many triumphs and setbacks throughout. I highly recommend a visit to Deep Haven to get to know its newest residents.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
