Fools Rush In


Title: FOOLS RUSH IN
Author: Janice Thompson
Publisher: Revell
September 2009

Genre: Inspirational/contemporary

Bella Rossi isn’t real sure how she can handle it when her Italian parents decide to just give her the family wedding planning business. In order to attract customers, Bella advertizes themed weddings and her first bride quickly books a country-western theme. There’s only one small problem. Bella doesn’t know a thing about country music—nor does she know a deejay that plays it!

Hearing the word deejay at her uncle’s pizzeria, Bella asks for the phone number, and a rather confused cowboy rattles off the number. The deejay, Dwayne Neeley, comes out to talk about the gig, and after meeting with the bride and groom, the light clicks on. Dwayne is not a deejay, he goes by DJ. And Bella is up to her neck in hot water. And while DJ may know his way around Alan Jackson and George Strait, he couldn’t possibly be the guy Bella is looking for…could he?

FOOLS RUSH IN is an adorable novel by Janice Thompson. This is also the first book in a new series, Weddings by Bella. I enjoyed getting to know Bella, and Dwayne just melted me within pages of having met him. Bella’s family is loud, opinionated, and reminded me heavily of the overbearing family on the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, totally overwhelming, and perfectly loving.

If you are looking for a good romance, I highly recommend FOOLS RUSH IN. In Janice Thompson’s signature style, the story is fun, fresh, and full of surprises. There might even be a laugh or two included. Includes Sister Twila’s Beauty Secrets. $13.99. 328 pages.
