Fools Rush In

What do you get when you take an Italian family that is more Italian than the mafia and more fun than the best party you ever attended and mix in a Texas cowboy and his country family? You get one of the most fun books you’ll read for a while. The Rossi’s are all Italian from the Pizza making Uncle Laz to Aunt Rosa’s homemade pasta. You’ll fall in love with this larger than life family and Bella, who runs a wedding facility. Then enters a young bride and groom who want a cowboy wedding and sends Bella into a frenzy to find the right DJ. Enter Dwayne Neeley from Splendor. The sparks fly between these two as they work together to pull off a wedding as Texas as the Alamo. Janice has created fun-loving characters who grab your heart and take you on a wild ride that will leave you laughing with tears in your eyes. The setting of Galveston is perfect for mix of Italy and Texas. It’s fun, it’s fresh, and it’s filled with characters and scenery that will make you feel like you are right in the middle of it all. This is one wedding you won’t soon forget. Dino and Frank are the center of a controversy between Aunt Rosa and Uncle Laz. Which one is your favorite and what is your favorite song by Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra?

Hi Martha...this book sounds like a really good read. I think I'd like Dino...who can resist such a handsome, funny man. My favorite song is by Dean...Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime. I have other favorites, but this one brings back memories of watching his show. Thanks for entering me in your giveaway for Fools Rush In.

I was never a Sinatra fan, but my mother enjoyed Dean Martin and I liked several of his songs as well - In the Misty Moonlight, The Door Is Still Open to My Heart, Lay Some Happiness on Me, etc. But I believe my favorite is Memories Are Made of This. I love the lyrics and I even play it on the piano at wedding receptions today.

I put Janice's book on my wish list when it was first released. The romantic in me loves a wedding theme, and humor makes it even better. Thank you for the giveaway, Martha.

Thanks, Martha! I hope everyone enjoys the book. I just got my first copy of the sequel (Swinging on a Star) yesterday. Woo-hoo!

I have heard so much good stuff about this book but haven't had the chance to read it yet - so thank you for the opportunity!

I would have to go with ol' blue eyes and Fly Me To The Moon always sets me swaying!

OOPPSS! I failed to say who my favorite singer is: Dean Martin, hands down. Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime. It always grieved that he became somewhat of a recluse. He had one excellent voice and was so funny.

I would have to say Dean Martin. 'That's Amore' is a fun one!

I'm familiar with what real, Italian pizzas taste like, our kids paid for our trip there and we had spent three months with them at the time and sampled several places that Italian pizzas were sold.
I LOVE books, especially if they are "one of the most fun books you’ll read for a while".
Hmmm.... Which is my favorite song by Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra? I know their face if I see them and can identify the person but never was a song nut to pick one out of the air. My mom had several records with their songs and played them while she did ironing after we all went to bed. Sorry, titles escape that memory.
