Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson

Bella Rossi may be nearing thirty, but her life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding planning business, Bella is determined not to let them down. She quickly books a "Boot Scoot'n" wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch--she's a country music numbskull because her family only listens to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Where will she find a DJ on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his Keith Urban?

When a misunderstanding leads her to the DJ (and man) of her dreams, things start falling into place. But with a family like hers, nothing is guaranteed. Can the perfect Texan wedding survive a pizza-making uncle with mob ties, an aunt who is a lawsuit waiting to happen, and a massive delivery of 80 cowboy boots? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding? Book one in the Weddings by Bella series, Fools Rush In is fun, fresh, and full of surprises. Readers will love the flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex, and the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.

My Review:
What lady doesn't want to read a face-paced, fun, frothy chick lit? This Christian fiction is filled with humor along with several Italian expressions--translated, of course--which add interest to the story.

The novel is written in the first-person narrative from Bella Rossi's point of view. The character of Bella is one that any reader will easily understand. She skirts in and out of situations made more complex by her eccentric Italian family. They live in Galveston Island, Texas, where they run a pizza shop and a wedding facility. She meets DJ, a Texas-style hunk. As expected, romance happens, but not before some funny situations develop.

The first book in the Weddings by Belle series, and I am looking forward to reading the next one.
