Fools Rush in by Janice Thompson

This is book one of Thompson's Weddings by Bella series... and I will most definitely be looking for the others in this series!

This, like so many books I am reading these days, was offered as a freebie on Kindle recently.  What a great way to find new authors and series!

Bella Rossi is an all-American-Italian girl living in Galveston, TX. Not where you expected right? Her parents have retired and given her full reign of the family Wedding business and Bella is all in.. over her head she fears!  She has advertised "theme" weddings and her first one is booked.. a Boot-Scootin' Western style bash. What on earth does a girl raised on Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra know about Country Western music, much less boots and cowboy hats?  In walks DJ....born and bred Texan... a cowboy in the flesh and the answer to Bella's problems... and maybe, just maybe, the man of her dreams.

It is a blast "watching" as these two get to know each other and their families collide in a cultural tsunami.  You will find mob owned parrots who curse a blue streak (don't worry, no words shared in the book)... Charismatic sisters who dance to the Lord whenever the chance arises... Rosa's heavenly garlic bread and Bubba's to-die-for BBQ... a hound dog and a yorki-poo.. and so much more!

A delightful read!  Great start to 2012 for this reader.

Oooh, bless you! I'm so glad you enjoyed Bella's story. Grateful for the kind words. I'm working on a spin-off series now (which incorporates Bella, DJ. Rosa, Laz and the rest of the Rossi gang as sub-characters). So fun!
