SYNOPSIS: There’s a fine line between ambitious and crazy. Bella’s just not sure where it is. Bella Rossi’s life is nearing perfection. Not only does she have the perfect guy, but she’s also running a successful wedding-planning business and is about to plan its most ambitious wedding yet–a Renaissance-themed fairy tale come true, complete with period costumes and foods, horse-drawn carriages, and even a castle. There’s only one hitch. The best man just happens to be Hollywood’s hottest and most eligible bachelor, and he’s showing an interest in Bella. Oh, and did we mention he’s staying at her house to avoid the paparazzi? With all the pressure surrounding this wedding, Bella’s not sure she’s going to make it through. Add her starstruck sister and her feuding aunt and uncle, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster–and a lot of laughs.
“If you enjoy weddings, Italian cuisine, and stories filled with humor and romance, you’re going to love Swinging on a Star.”–Anita Higman, award-winning author, Love Finds You in Humble, Texas
“Swinging on a Star has more layers of love than Aunt Rosa’s lasagna. A sweet romance that sizzles and simmers on every page.”–Allison Pittman, author, Stealing Home
What Readers Are Saying:
It’s rare for a sequel to stand up to the original in movies. This book stands up to the first. We see Bella move from the first blush of love with her handsome cowboy to thinking about whether their love is the kind that will last and the difference between love and attraction. More than one romance blooms in this book and though Janice does a great job at making us laugh, she also grabs our hearts and makes us care about these people. My teenage son wants to lodge a formal complaint about how many times I said “awww” while reading this book. (P. Smith)
I just love the Weddings by Bella series. The characters are so fun and interesting. I love how Janice Thompson so accurately depicts the culture of Galveston/Splendora. I catch myself smiling so often throughout the story. Two thumbs up for Swinging on a Star! (Meredith Drake)
