    From the Publisher


    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.



    IT HAD TO BE YOU  by Janice Thompson is a sweet Inspirational Comtemporty Romance. It is the third in Weddings By Bella series but can be read as a stand alone.  It is set in modern day Galveston Island, Texas. It is well written with detail and depth. It is written is first person. It has Christian values, romance, humor, friendships, and close knit family ties. The characters are charming, witty, have Christian values. This is a quick read. If you haven/t read the other Weddings By Bella novels you should pick them up (#1 Fools Rush In, #2 Swinging On A Star). If you enjoy sweet, witty romance with good Christian values you will enjoy this one also. I would recommed this book. this book was received for review and details can be found at Revell.
