I LOVED IT! Watch out Nicholas Sparks, here comes C. E. Hilbert! I couldn't put the book down and stayed up all night to finish it. I'm going to have my 15 year old daughter read it to show her how you can have true romance and still follow a Christian path.

This book is awesome!!!! It is a wonderful summer read. Jane Grey's world is filled with all the elements of a wonderful life, a great best friend, loving family, a great job and yes two amazing men that adore her. What more could a woman want? Hmmm.... This book is such a good read I found myself sinking into my favorite chair and not able to put it down! I HIGHLY recommend it!

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite "The Wooing of Jane Grey" by C.E. Hilbert is a pure and wonderful love story. Jane Grey had it all: a good job, good life, proper church life, loving parents, two sisters and a best friend. But she was thirty-ish and wanted something more from life. Enter a chance meeting with Paul Wade, a man she literally runs into in an office lobby. Jane and Paul feel an immediate attraction towards each other. He is a lawyer, a man who believes in God, the perfect man for Jane. Millie, the best friend, has been introduced to Lindy Barrett, the hockey player Jane has had a crush on since her college days, when her dorm was decorated in Lindy posters. The girls are invited to a charity dinner and Jane spends the evening sitting with her hero. The two become quick friends. Paul very quickly falls in love and shares his feelings openly with Jane. Lindy coming off of a recent break-up tries hard to keep the flames down to a special friend level. Jane is torn between the two men understanding who the right choice is and who the one is that makes her heart skip beats. "The Wooing of Jane Grey" is a book that will make you smile and feel good. It is impossible not to feel all of Jane’s emotions, both good and bad. I couldn’t help but wish I had a best friend like Millie. Paul and Lindy were both special men and I found myself rooting for them both at several places in the story, though being a hockey fanatic I did lean toward Lindy for the most part. Hilbert brought me into the book and left me with a warm and fuzzy smile at the conclusion of the story. This is a sure five star book in the romance category that women of all ages will enjoy. I would love to see it turned into a movie. "The Wooing of Jane Grey" is a winner.

This was an amazing book to read! I read it in one day and I laughed and cried all at the same time. A wonderful love story that kept me engaged and I could visually picture the story. I can not wait for another book about the life of Jane Grey and and her family. AMAZING!!!!

I simply adored this book and couldn't put it down. I was hooked by the second chapter and smiled the whole time I read. It was funny, uplifting, witty, and fast paced. It was also just refreshing and different from really anything else I've read. I will recommend it to friends and family who are avid readers and will look forward to other books by the author!

If you're looking for a light-hearted read, this is a good one. I liked it enough to look for another book by this author, but could not find one.

I met the author in Ohio and bought the book instantly (she is such a genuinely sweet woman and her faith in God is so inspiring!). I started reading it as soon as I could and the story drew me in right away. Even though I am a college student with papers to write and finals coming up, I still made time to read this book! I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. This book is like "The Notebook" of fictional novels, with a Christian aspect added in. It grasped my attention as much (if not more than!) a great movie. To be honest, I giggled like a little school girl at the end. It's a feel-good story and very enjoyable to read! I can only hope it gets made into a movie :) I'm excited for her to write another book!

I started the book on Monday and finished the book on Tuesday and all I can say is WOW!! I couldn't put it down! I started Monday, skipped my lunch so I could sit and read, stayed up until midnight and then finished it Tuesday afternoon. I devoured it. I actually found myself wondering what Jane and Lindy's wedding looked like... yep, it draws you in that much. I knew it was good when I didn't want to read the last page a few pages into it...I normally do that. : )

Thirty two year old Jane Grey is in a dating slump and a work rut. Her older sister is married and has that perfect family going. Her younger sister is ready to tie the knot with her knight in shining armor (or in this case, a good looking guy with a fancy law degree). Now Jane's mom will be able to obsess over Jane's old maid status full-time. All that changes within 24 hours. Jane takes a big risk and applies for a job as an event planner, her idea of a dream job. No, she doesn't get the job. (I still chuckle over the interview scene as Jane is effectively shut down by the interviewer after Jane spews out her practiced "perfect interview" speech. But within minutes, Jane won't have time to think about a failed interview when a classically handsome man bumps into her as she leaves the office building, then asks her out. Delighted over the prospects of a date with someone who seems to truly be a nice guy, Jane returns to her old job to find a message from her longtime best gal pal Millie who has news that they have been given tickets to the hockey game AND a charity event following the game. Even more importantly, they will share a table with hockey star Lindy Barrett. Jane has followed Lindy's career since she was nineteen. As he holds out the chair for her to be seated at the dinner that night, she can't help wonder what he would think if he knew that she kept his poster on her dorm room wall throughout college. Soon Jane's days are a blur of testerone. Matt appears to be the perfect match. A Christian like Jane, Matt shares her faith and values. He is considerate and appears to have no flaws. Flowers and compliments abound. Very quickly, he makes it clear that he sees Jane as more than a casual date. Meanwhile, Lindy continues to send Jane passes to the home games and they often spend time talking on the phone. Lindy shares that he IS NOT interested in dating anyone, and the two settle into a comfortable guy/gal friendship. Matt isn't even jealous, at least for a while. He does wish that Jane could work a little more on getting Lindy interested in church. It is only everyone else in the world that can see that something special is brewing between the two friends. C. E. Hilbert is a young author, and the target audience for this book is definitely young Jane is portrayed as an old movie buff. For the first hundred pages or so, I felt I was drowning in movie/movie star metaphors and allusions. I do have to say they were done with humor, and despite the heavy hand, they helped bring Jane to life. Midway through the book, a more authentic story replaced the contrived writing. As the days and hours tick toward Matt and Jane's wedding, you'll be wanting Lindy to sweep Jane away or for Matt to turn out to be a louse, but that won't happen. Just what and who is Jane's future? Younger romance readers will like this title. Some may not gravitate to the book due to its simple black cover, but give it a read. To find out more about the book and C. E. Hilbert, check her website or Deep River Books I received a review copy of this book from Deep River Books amd Bring It on Communications. The review opinions are my own.

From the very beginning of "Wooing" I felt like I was the one being wooed! I couldn't wait to turn the page and see what was going to happen next for Jane! Both men in the book are my heros because they both have attractive qualities most women would long to have in a partner. Jane is one lucky woman! This is a definite must read!!

I enjoyed getting to know Jane, her family and her friends. She's had an interesting and inspiring journey full of faith along with self-doubt, success along with struggles, all wrapped in fun and love.

Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down. It is a journey of laughs and tears as you join Jane in her struggle to stay strong in her faith with two wonderful men "wooing" her. You will be inspired by her faith and entertained by her humor. This author can bring you into the book with her descriptive words and you feel like you are in Columbus, Ohio with her! Enjoy!!
