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.

My Review: *Spoiler Alert if you haven't read books 1 and 2*
Bella and the Rossi clan are back and better than ever! This was by far my favorite book of the series, Janice Thompson saved the best for last! If you love chaos and weddings this is definitely the book to read! I think every single person in this book gets married and if they didn't elope, they wanted Bella to plan their weddings while planing her own upcoming nuptials to her hunky cowboy, DJ.

When you throw in food, family, weddings, and faith you really can't ask for a better book. You will not be bored with this one. Poor Bella, you can't help but feel the stress that she's under but at least she has the sweetest fiance in DJ to help her through. The happy ending was terrific but I am crossing my fingers that we will see more of this family in a future series!

“Available May 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
