About the Book:

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:
This is a funny book filled with quirky interesting characters. Bella's Italian family moved from New Jersey to Galveston Island in Texas when she was a child but they never really became Texans. They listen to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in the Rossi house. When Bella took over the family wedding business she decided to start offering theme weddings. Her first one booked is a Country-Western theme. She has no idea about country music so she sets out to find a deejay. What follows is a humorous novel filled with mistakes and family, and faith. The food descriptions will make your mouth water and I already love Italian food and language. Each chapter has title from a Sinatra/Martin song. I enjoyed every page. Recommended.
