Wooing Cadie McCaffrey
"Romantics everywhere will sigh happily at the perfect ending."--Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author
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?

"Reminiscent of your favorite 90s romantic comedy, Turner's latest novel woos readers with a sparky meet-cute and seals the deal with a nostalgic grand finale. A modern, messy love story not to be missed."
Nicole Deese, Carol Award-winning and RITA-nominated author
"Turner's inimitable, playfully fresh, and surprising narrative are again at the helm in a sophomore novel that confidently plays with voice and timeline but never wavers in intention and warmth. Written by one of the most naturally gifted writers I have ever read, this fresh and beguiling novel takes the splendid clichés of romantic comedies and assuredly sets them in a study of a relationship in its ebbs and flows with great heart. Wooing Cadie McCaffrey is an essential addition to the canon of inspirational fiction."
Rachel McMillan, author of the Van Buren and DeLuca series
"Well, Bethany Turner sure knows how to braid a healthy amount of humor, tears, and 'I want to throw the book across the room because it hurts too much' in her newest contemporary romance, Wooing Cadie McCaffrey. This cheeky and delightful read pairs romance and some dearly loved movie references to remove the 'veil' of perceptions and get to the heart of what love looks like. Don't let the lighthearted tone deceive you. Turner hides a deep-hearted story about how selfishness, guilt, and misconceptions discolor our views of love and of God, which then leads us into all sorts of self-sabotage and heartache. Those who've fallen in love with Turner's snappy dialogue and engaging characters will find that Will and Cadie keep your heart feeling every emotion . . . and rooting for their happily-ever-after. They are definitely MFEO."
Pepper Basham, author of The Pleasant Gap and Mitchell's Crossroads series
"Bethany Turner is taking Christian fiction by storm! Wooing Cadie McCaffrey has everything you ever wanted in a romantic comedy--witty banter, laugh-out-loud moments, and sigh-worthy romance. But don't let the adorable cover and unique, lighthearted voice fool you. Turner and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey grapple with and shed grace-filled light on topics that have too long been pushed into our Christian closets. It's safe to say that Wooing Cadie McCaffrey isn't your grandmother's Christian fiction, but everyone and their grandmother needs to read this book."
Sarah Monzon, award-winning author of The Esther Paradigm
