It Had to Be You

May 9th, 2010. Filed under: This & That.




Get ready for a double dose of wedding frenzy!

Bella couldn’t be happier that two of her long-feuding relatives 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 a 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 amid the chaos?

Full of humor, plenty of Italian passion, and a bit of Texas gumption, It Had to Be You will have you laughing out loud and wiping a tear from your eye.

Ba da bing. Ba da boom. Marriages and engagements all over the place. Some expected and some totally unexpected. Our wedding planner is so busy planning all the weddings and celebrations that she doesn’t have time to plan her own.
On top of it all, she has to deal with a house full of family and friends, including Guido’s Sal. Throw in a little renovation and construction, loss of personal space and huge amounts of stress and anxiety, and you have Bella ready for a meltdown.


At least she doesn’t end up in jail this time, but she does end up spending some time in a place she’d rather not.
Even though this book is part of a series, it is still a good stand alone read. But I can’t see how you can read just one of these books.
I certainly don’t want this series to end. I’m in love with the Rossi and Neeley clans and the assorted extended/adopted family members.
Do you remember what was special about the chapter titles? It’s the same with this book only, Dino and Frankie aren’t included this time around.

    Woo-hoo! You’re a doll for helping me get the word out about my books. Thank you so much! Glad you love Bella and DJ as much as I do!

    I could go on reading about Bella and DJ for a nice long time. I hope you might reconsider and add another book or two to this series. You certainly have enough characters to keep you in plots for a long time.

    Maybe you can do a “spin off” like they sometimes do with popular TV series. Maybe even have it set in Splendora. Oh, yes. I can see lots of stories with the “sisters.”
