Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson
Publisher: Fleming H. Revell Company
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
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? (amazon.com)
I got this one as a freebie - I'm always open for new authors and stories.
This romantic comedy is about Bella, an Italian-American, who's taken over her parents' wedding planning business in Galveston, Texas. For her first big event she's on the search for a deejay, but ends up with DJ Neely, a gorgeous looking Texan. And from here on the story just trickles along like a little creek in the forest, a few hiccups, misunderstandings and a lot of praying is about all you get here.
In all fairness, there were a few giggles. Janice Thompson has a witty writing style, which I really liked, but it was the lack of the plot which made me skip pages along pages to finally make it finish. I don't think I missed much.
Not my cup of tea I'm afraid!
