Swinging on a Star by Janice Thompson (Review)

There's a fine line between ambitious and crazy.

Bella's just not sure where it is.

Bella Rossi's life is nearing perfection. Not only does she have the perfect guy, but she's also running a successful wedding-planning business and is about to plan its most ambitious wedding yet--a Renaissance-themed fairy tale come true, complete with period costumes and foods, horse-drawn carriages, and even a castle. There's only one hitch. The best man just happens to be Hollywood's hottest and most eligible bachelor, and he's showing an interest in Bella. Oh, and did we mention he's staying at her house to avoid the paparazzi?

With all the pressure surrounding this wedding, Bella's not sure she's going to make it through. Add her starstruck sister and her feuding aunt and uncle, and you've got a recipe for disaster--and a lot of laughs.


"If you enjoy weddings, Italian cuisine, and stories filled with humor and romance, you're going to love Swinging on a Star."--Anita Higman, award-winning author, Love Finds You in Humble, Texas

"Swinging on a Star has more layers of love than Aunt Rosa's lasagna. A sweet romance that sizzles and simmers on every page."--Allison Pittman, author, Stealing Home

My Review:
I loved this book. It is even better than the first and I did not know it was possible. Fools Rush In is the first in the Weddings by Bella series. You could read this separate but you would be missing out. They are so funny and unique. The plot and characters are well developed and interesting. It is different from everything else out there right now. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Highly Recommended. :)

I think this one sounds cute. I have Fools Rush In to read and hope to get to this one too. Thanks for your thoughts.

Thank you so much for the sweet review! I'm so grateful! Glad the second book stood up to the first. I think you'll really like the third one. In that one, the relatives come from Italy for Rosa and Laz's big day. And this happens while Bella is planning her own wedding to DJ!
