This week I’m featuring:

Four Years ago, on my thirtieth birthday, I had two very important realizations.
- I didn’t need a man in my life in order to be happy or fulfilled.
- My chances of meeting and falling in love with a man–and having him fall in love with me–would increase exponentially if I lowered my standards.
I just received my copy of Wooing Cadie McCaffrey yesterday. I had the pleasure of meeting Bethany Turner at CFRR last month and she was a real hoot so I am excited to dig into this one! I have a good feeling I’m going to find some of her spunky personality show up in her writing, and her first line pretty much confirms that 😉 The book doesn’t release until May 21 but is currently available for pre-order!
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?
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.
About the Author:
Bethany Turner is the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. A former VP/operations manager of a commercial bank and a three-time cancer survivor (all before she turned 35), Bethany knows that when God has plans for your life, it doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say. Because of that, she’s chosen to follow his call to write. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Colorado, where she writes for a new generation of readers who crave fiction that tackles the thorny issues of life with humor and insight.

Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens — https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/09/first-line-friday-86/. It’s such a good book … I highly recommend it. Currently, I’m reading Shine the Light by April McGowan. I’m on chapter seven, so I’ll share the first line from there:
