Fools Rush In-Janice Thompson

Fools Rush In

Revell, Sep 2009, $13.99
ISBN: 9780800733421

Bella Rossi hopes to successfully run her family wedding planning business Club Wed with the retirement of her parents. However, her first client wants a Boot-Scootin’ country-and-western theme. Bella knows she is out of her league as she only knows of the Italian heartthrobs like Frank and Dino, but no one sings heartbreak with a Texas twang though her Uncle Lazarro relocated the family from Atlantic City to Galveston Island years ago.

Bella needs a C&W DJ to take charge so she hires D.J. Neeley. However, while he assumes she employed him as a construction contractor she believes DJ means deejay. Soon Italy and Texas meet as D.J. and Bella are attracted to one another though his twang leaves a lot to be desired.

The first Weddings by Bella is a fun chick lit romance as Little Italy meets Little Texas. Bella is terrific with her commentary that turns the life of D.J. upside down as he learns to construct with heart and soul while she learns the Texas two-step. Fans will enjoy this lighthearted amusing frolic with an inspirational messages nicely interweaved into the story line.
