From the publisher:
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.

My Review:
Swinging on a Star is yet another winner from Janice Thompson! Sometimes the second books in a series can be a let down but that's not the case with this one! With great characters such as the Rossi family, it's very hard not to love this series.

The Rossi clan is at it again, with so many folks living in one house there is bound to be chaos. This book features the same fun characters that we met in Fools Rush In as well as a few great new characters including the hunky Hollywood actor, Brock Benson aka Vinnie. Whew what a hunk he is and a totally nice guy to boot! I hope to see more of him in the future. It's funny to see the Rossi's reaction to Brock and their attempts to keep Brock's identity a secret to keep the neighbors and paparazzi at bay. I'm sure you will laugh out loud like I did. The story is terrific as I've come to expect from Janice. It is great to see an old relationship take a new turn and Bella's relationship with DJ grow.

As a Texan herself it's easy to see that Janice knows what she's writing about. It felt like I was on The Strand and could feel the heat and humidity. That's a tough thing to do, especially since it was 25 degrees when I read Swinging on a Star!

I will definitely be looking for Book 3, It Had to Be You...I can't wait to see how the next wedding turns out! Who knows maybe it will be a double wedding? ;-)
