Fools Rush In by Janice Hanna Thompson ~ 5/5 stars

Fools Rush In
Janice Hanna Thompson
Weddings by Bella series, Book 1

Revell- Publisher
About the book:
Ever wonder how Italian sounds with a Southern drawl?

Bella Rossi's life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding-planning business, Bella quickly books a Boot-Scootin' wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch--she doesn't know a thing about country music. Where will she find a deejay on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his George Strait? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding?

Fun, fresh, and full of surprises, this flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex highlights the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.

My review:
Fools Rush In is an amazing read! I really loved it. Janice writes her books in such a way that all the characters are important, though you don’t end up following so many storylines that you get confused. This gives her books a very homey feel, like you are visiting the character’s family and friends and simply getting to know them all. Janice’s humor is so fun to read! She could make anyone laugh, I believe. Bella is such a real character, and I could really relate to her! I enjoyed getting to know her immensely. D.J. is a heartthrob and SO sweet and caring. I loved how she wrote his character. :-) Those beauty secrets were something else! I just want to know if they really work… hehe. This is a wonderful read that you are sure to enjoy. If you don’t… Well, then we need to have a talk ‘cause you must have issues. ;)
