After four years with her boyfriend, Cadie McCaffrey is thinking of ending things. Convinced Will doesn’t love her in the “forever” way she loves him, Cadie believes it’s time for her to let him go before life passes her by. When a misunderstanding leads to a mistake, leaving her hurt, disappointed, and full of regret, she finally sends him packing. But for Will, the end of their relationship is only the beginning of his quest to figure out how to be the man Cadie wanted him to be. With the dubious guidance of his former pro-athlete work friends and tactics drawn from Cadie’s favorite romantic comedies, Will attempts to win her back. It’s a foolproof plan. What could possibly go wrong?

“Rising star Bethany Turner’s Wooing Cadie McCaffrey highlights the author’s oh-so-readable voice and engaging characters. One of the many things I love about Turner is the way she tackles tough subjects with candor yet writes with the right amount of discretion. Romantics everywhere will sigh happily at the perfect ending. Highly recommended!” -- Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author of The House at Saltwater Point and the Rock Harbor series

Bethany Turner has done it again! Filled with wit and loaded with pop culture references, Wooing Cadie McCaffrey is sure to be an instant favorite among fans of Christian romance. I’ve found my new go-to author for rom-com with heart.” -- Carla Laureano, RITA award–winning author of The Saturday Night Supper Club and Brunch at Bittersweet CafĂ©.

This story centers on Cadie and Will and a huge misunderstanding that cripples their fragile relationship. Caddie works at a sports network in the accounting department. On her birthday, she meets the man who would come in and change her affirmation “I don’t need a man to be happy” to “I don’t need to be married to be happy" to well, you will find that out when you read it.

After a particularly romantic night out, Cadie was under the impression a proposal was forthcoming. When it did not happen, she subsequently began to ruin their relationship. Will realized he needed to make sure he got himself together to be the man she needed. He promised to love and keep her and he was going to do what he needed to become that man for her. He dove head first into work unknowingly feeding Cadie’s insecurity about their relationship and creating a bigger divide between the two. After a year of growing distance, one night the two break a vow they made early on in their relationship. This causes Cadie to place the blame firmly at Will’s feet. 

The couple's story is entertaining and educational. Through these two, you see what happens when communication is not key in your relationship. I kept thinking if Cadie couldn’t express her feelings to him, they should not get married. Will was clueless to what was going on in her head and did what he felt he must to move them forward - not realizing he was pushing her to make a decision that would hurt them both. However, her decision leads to some pretty epic moment’s i.e. bungled proposals, recreating one of the biggest romantic gestures to date in movies and a few “aww” moments. Thank goodness for Darby balancing out Cadie’s overly dramatic personality. Sidenote- I would love to see her with a story of her own. (hint, hint) I will say the one thing that I did appreciate was that this story managed to integrate personal faith and abstinence into it in a respectable way.
While I could not connect with Cadie, I could with Will – go figure. The story moved at a moderate pace and was structurally sound with decent character development, particularly in Will. I do wish that Cadie’s character was one that I could have connected to instead of constantly thinking “she’s a silly 30-year-old woman." Overall, this was an easy, likable romantic read. The one thing that made this work for me was that it’s relatable whether you are the best friend, the hopeful girlfriend or the clueless significant other. It works and I suppose that’s all that matters.
Well, that’s my two cents. You can get your own copy here and don’t forget to support the author by leaving a review.
