Book Review: Fools Rush In

Mama Mia, what a novel! I have never laughed so hard over a novel in my entire reading life!

Bella Rossi doesn’t know what she has gotten herself into when she took over the family wedding planning service. Certainly not 800 boots, a deejay that isn’t a deejay- or is he?- her BBQ cook with singed eyebrows and one pesky neighbor who is always finding himself at the wrong end of her aunt’s broom.

I heard great things about this novel, so I picked it up, though still a little skeptical if the humor could hold it’s own the entire novel- could it entertain me? Oh did it ever! This book went everywhere with me, becoming my best friend through the two days it took me to read it. I laughed the entire way through, I couldn’t stop smiling- even just thinking about it. I quickly become Bella’s best friend, she has such a unique voice and way of seeing the world, all through her Italian lifestyle. The food descriptions alone had my mouth watering!

This family of quirky, lovable characters quickly worm their way into your heart and set up camp. What a wonderful family to escape to visit. I only wish they didn’t lurk between the pages of a book- then who says they have to? This book should be on everyone’s book shelf- it’s a keeper!
