It Had to be You...Review

About the book:
Bella couldn't be happier that her long-feuding Aunt Rosa and Uncle Lazarro have finally admitted their love for one another and are getting married. Their forties-style wedding is sure to be a night to remember. But when the Rossi house begins to fill up with family from Italy--and an old mobster from New Jersey--life starts to get complicated. Will Lazarro's friend from the past drive the happy couple apart once more? And will Bella ever have time to think of her own rapidly-approaching wedding amidst the chaos? Full of laugh-out-loud humor, plenty of Italian passion, and a bit of Texas gumption, It Had to Be You is the satisfying conclusion to an entertaining series.

Third in the Weddings by Bella series, this one is full of even more quirky, Italian Rossi family members, as the Napoli Rossi's descend upon Texas for Rosa and Laz's wedding. Bella finds herself stressed beyond belief as wedding after wedding is scheduled and she hopes she can enjoy planning her own.

The humor is there, just as it is in the previous books, but there's more of a poignancy here as Bella finds herself and her strength and learns to rely on her family and God. D. J. is truly too perfect for words, but every girl wants a prince charming!

An entertaining, enjoyable read. I think the second book was actually my favorite, but this one is a fitting end to the trilogy. I'd love to see more of the Rossi family at some point and I could completely envision these books as films. They'd be wonderful chick flicks!

Available May 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Donna Hausler of Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Janice Thompson here. You can purchase your own copy here and here.
