Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson

Fools Rush In (Weddings by Bella, #1)


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?

My Opinion:

This was a very funny read! Tons of crazy things happened that had me laughing from the beginning. From Bella's crazy family to how D.J. deals with it all, their is not stop laughter and family bonding.
 I loved how in this book Bella's whole family loves eachother to death, not to mention D.J.'s family as well. I also like that even though you know everyone loves each other, it showed how a family can and will butt heads, but everything will be alright and back to normal in the end; That after a spat you don't run for the hills but you let it make you stronger in your relationship with others.
I thought the whole relationship between Bella and D.J. was cute! It was romantic but not serious all the time, I liked how they would joke around with eachother and just relax.
The things I didn't like...
Yes, I liked how this book was funny. However, I do like to have SOME serious moments. About every time the book started to have a serious moment, something funny/weird would happen to interupt it. It kinda frusterated me. Also, Bella's family was over emotional, expecially her Uncle Laz. He cryed at EVERYTHING, happy or sad. I don't know any Italian family's, but I'm pretty sure they don't cry at everything.
Then, their was the bird. I don't know what to think about that, it was just a little weird and not realistic.
I would recommend this book to people who like clean books and love to laugh. I hope this review helped you decide whether to read it or not!
Rating: 3 1/2 Stars (added a 1/2 star just because I liked D.J. so much:)
