Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner began as a delightful book, the kind I long to read. Filled with numerous lines that made me giggle, I was sure I would love everything about it. And I did. Almost.
Cadie and Will have been dating for four years. They are in their mid-thirties and she is sure he's going to propose, because marriage obviously comes next. But he doesn't and she's mad. Though angry, she's still in love and one night they take things too far. This scene is not written out, it's not in the book as a turn-on. It's handled delicately. But it's still in there.
I was pleased to see that more attention was given to the repentance of the Cadie and Will than the actual sin they wandered into. This was handled beautifully.
I don't read Christian fiction to read sex scenes. This was handled wonderfully, I'm just afraid that it will open a door to other books/authors and soon our books will look more like the ones of the world. Yes, Christians make mistakes of all kinds, yes we sin, yes we need to repent. Do I want to be entertained by their sin? No.
Overall I enjoyed the book. I've been a pastor's wife for twenty-seven years and have watched the world creep into the lives of people in the church. I hope this isn't another example of that.
