SWINGING ON A STAR by Janice Thompson

This book was a pleasure to read. I was laughing and smiling and just enjoying myself as I read more of the Rossi family and Bella's Club Wed business. It is a story filled with weddings, great Italian cooking, and a delightful Italian family deep in the heart of Texas! I could easily see this series of stories made into a delightful and fun-filled movie. From Guido the talking parrot, to Bella and her boyfriend, DJ, you won't lack for something happening on every page. If you have ever watched the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" you will get a slight feel for this family. Janice Thompson made my day with this story and the ending was just about perfect. What girl could ask for a better proposal!

Bella Rossi is working on pulling off a Renaissance themed wedding and as a surprise the best man is a hot Hollywood actor. They need to keep him hidden until the wedding so he ends up staying with the Rossi family. Trying to avoid the paparazzi, have the TV show "Food Network" coming in to film Aunt Rosa's cooking and keep the wedding plans going keeps Bella very busy. But her Texas born sweetheart is there to help her through it all and he is a keeper! There are so many wonderful characters in this story that I couldn't possibly name them all and talk about them, you just have to read about them and get ready to laugh, smile and enjoy!
