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?


PRAISE FOR WOOING CADIE McCAFFREY
“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.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own and a positive review was not required.



If a book could say hello, then this book had me at hello! The cover...the dedication...the prologue, absolutely perfect! And it honestly only got better from there. What a laugh out loud breath of fresh air! From the quirky, yet stubbornly lovable heroine to the clueless and affable hero, what we ultimately have here is a failure to communicate! However, their missteps and misunderstandings provide the perfect approach for the author's incredibly unique voice and style to showcase this unique love story.

Romantic comedies have always held a special place in my heart. I still have every line from The Goodbye Girl memorized! The summer I was 14, I watched Sleepless in Seattle or Reality Bites every night before bed. And don't get me started on the number of times I swore I was going to be Kathleen Kelly from You've Got Mail when I grew up with my little neighborhood book store and a sweet and adoring relationship that began online. But in the last decade or so, it's become increasingly difficult to find the time and attention span to actually watch a movie much less one that isn't animated! This book reminded me of how much I used to enjoy spending a few hours humorously wrapped up in someone else's love affair. There are so many amusing references to beloved rom-coms that any fan will find a reason to fall in love all over again! Every character is wonderfully well developed and truly came alive to the point that each minute spent reading was like watching it unfold on the screen. This was further enhanced by the endearing chapter headings, which set the tone and kept the pacing on point!

"It wasn't Will's fault that life was not a John Cusack movie any more than it was my fault that I wished it were."

For every perfectly timed comedic moment, the story was beautifully laced with touches of grace and forgiveness in the ever present struggle with feelings of guilt and regret. Love can be a fantastically frustrating journey, yet this story is a shining testament to faith! God is truly in the details, and when we hand them over to Him, wonderful things happen. 

As Vivian says in Pretty Woman, "I want the fairy tale," and this book definitely gave me the fairy tale that I didn't know I needed! Happily ever afters can exist and this one will definitely make you swoon. Now, as I anxiously await the author's next book, you can find me behind the pages of her debut, THE SECRET LIFE OF SARAH HOLLENBECK!
