Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner

I have been waiting for this book for a while and was so excited when it popped up on my Kindle from NetGalley! I may or may not have squealed. I dropped everything and read the book immediately in two days (I am a slow reader)


Bethany Turner’s Wooing Cadie McCaffrey takes us on an adventure of discovery. Cadie has decided some things on her thirtieth birthday and they dictate her future choices. We can all relate to how one decision, or a belief, shapes us. Cadie is no different and we journey with her as she sorts out her relationship with handsome and endearing, but sometimes clueless, Will Whitaker. I don’t want to spoil anything for you but I was delightfully surprised at the twists and turns these characters take, flavored with movie pop culture and romantic gestures that are meant to win the girl. By the title, you may have already presumed that Cadie is being wooed, and she is, but the circumstances around said wooing may surprise you.

I devoured this book and laughed and cried with Cadie. It’s tenderhearted, funny and under all of that challenges us to be our most honest selves and to learn to love others with intention.


I got a copy of this book on NetGalley from the Publisher, my opinions are my own.

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?

Bethany Turner is back with more of the heart and humor readers love. Anyone who enjoys a good romance or binges romantic comedies on Netflix will devour this delightful story.

    I don’t read a lot of contemporary romance books but this one sounds quite intriguing. I shall add this to my list of books to get and read in the future.
