Book Review: Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson

Book Description:
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 thoughts:
Fools Rush In by Janice Thompson came highly recommended and was a fun and exciting read. Another fun aspect of the book is that all the chapter titles came from songs, but I think the beauty tips that were shared in the book were were the icing on the cake. I look forward to reading the second book in the series, Swinging on a Star. If you are looking for a fun, fast read, Fools Rush In will fit the bill.


  1. Thank you so much for the sweet review! I'm glad you enjoyed the book. Hope you like Swinging on a Star, too! The third book (It Had to be You) comes out in early summer.

    By the way, I homeschooled my four daughters. They're all grown and married now. I remember those homeschooling days like they were yesterday. :)

  2. The beauty tips were so neat! Tell me truthfully, was your favorite character Guido? ;o)

  3. I saw the ages ago.... I honestly didn't know this was a book first. I'll have to check it out.

  4. Thanks for participating in the Saturday Review at Semicolon.
