Book Review: Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner

About the Book:

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?

My Thoughts:

Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner is a delightfully addictive romance novel with laugh-out-loud humor, a unique tone, and numerous romcom movie references. The story was cute from the beginning, but once I hit chapter ten, I didn't want to put it down.

My favorite character in Wooing Cadie McCaffrey was Will. He made mistakes, but his personal ambition and dedication to Cadie made him absolutely swoon-worthy. Conversely, Cadie made mistakes, but I found her slightly annoying. Her refusal to communicate during difficult times seemed immature for a woman in her mid-thirties. Fortunately, there's character development and I found myself rooting for them to get together in the end.

Though much of Wooing Cadie McCaffrey is humor and fun, deeper themes are present. The novel captures the real life tensions that Christian couples experience as they desire to be together, but aren't completely prepared to marry. The story explores how a lack of communication can negatively affect a relationship, but I wish there had been more page time dedicated to Will and Cadie actually practicing good communication... Maybe I just didn't want the novel to end. *wink*

I recommend Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner to readers who enjoy romantic comedies. I read this novel twice before writing this review and I found it even more fun the second time around.
