The Book of Bella

So, as you may.. or may not.. know, I have a Kindle. My wonderful husband bought me a Kindle for my birthday last year. I think he bought it with the intentions of knowing I would never have time, and I would never actually use the thing. It would sit in my drawer, untouched.

Boy did I fool him. I love my Kindle. I tote it almost every where with me. Can you imagine the size of my purse? I carry a DSLR camera.. a giant calendar book... a sea of little boy things, and a Kindle. My purse is huge! Think.. suitcase size.

Anyway.. I just finished reading my 5th book on the Kindle and it was pretty decent. Here is the description as written by editors.

Editorial Description:
Bella Rossi may be nearing thirty, but her life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding planning business, Bella is determined not to let them down. She quickly books a "Boot Scoot'n" wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch--she's a country music numbskull because her family only listens to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Where will she find a DJ on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his Keith Urban? When a misunderstanding leads her to the DJ (and man) of her dreams, things start falling into place. But with a family like hers, nothing is guaranteed. Can the perfect Texan wedding survive a pizza-making uncle with mob ties, an aunt who is a lawsuit waiting to happen, and a massive delivery of 80 cowboy boots? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding? Book one in the Weddings by Bella series, Fools Rush In is fun, fresh, and full of surprises. Readers will love the flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex, and the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.

Jayme's Description:
Funny. Cute. Love the fact that it is set in Galveston and I grew up around there. The book was more religious than most romances I have read, but honestly, it was worked in wonderfully, and the religion defiantly does not bother me as we are weekly church attendees. The gist of it is that Bella takes over the family business - traditional weddings. Only Bella decides to give it a twist and incorporate non-traditional ceremonies into her business. Her first client: A rich couple who dream of the ultimate western, boot scootin wedding. In the midst of looking for a Deejay to play at the wedding, she meets DJ, who could possibly be the man of her dreams. Her story is funny, light hearted and her family is hilarious. Without giving too much away. The bird is a hoot! It was not one of the best books I have read, in fact, at time I found it a little boring and dragging on. I believe I kept reading though because it was set in Galveston and I loved all the references to buildings and streets. Would I read the second book? Probably. I want to see what happens next.

  1. You should totally do a post of your purse. Show us the outsize, so we know just how big it is and pictures from the inside :)

    Sounds like a really good book too!
