It Had To Be You by Janice Thompson

Book description:

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.

Review: (my sister, Vicki has enjoyed this series, so I have had her review them, so this review is also from her)

The third and final in the series, Weddings By Bella, sees Balla's Aunt Rosa and Uncle Laz getting married. Toss in an ex-mobster, a crazy parrot, and a gang of Rossis, and this book is sure to be entertaining. As the 1940's style wedding is soon to take place, Bella wonders if the "happy" couple will go through with it.

Love is in the air as Bella's own wedding comes up. This book will have you laughing and possibly crying as you turn page after fun-filled page. I thoroughly enjoyed not only this book, but the whole series, and highly recommend it.
