Swinging on a Star by Janice Thompson is the second book in the Weddings by Bella series. Bella is back, along with the rest of the raucous Rossi family. This time she is planning a grandiose medieval wedding complete with castle, moat, authentic food, and traditional style clothing for all attendants and guests. That's stressful enough, but Bella's Aunt Rosa has been selected by the Food Network for a segment that will be filmed the day before the medieval wedding. Now throw in a best man, umm I mean first knight, who is the equivalent of George Clooney, and life is about to get crazy for Bella. Thank God for D.J. her steadfast and handsome cowboy boyfriend who keeps her grounded and feeling loved. Readers can't help but fall in love with the antics of the Rossi family. Mama, who's obsessed with opera; Papa, who complains about all the cheese in Aunt Rosa's spectacular meals; Uncle Laz who owns the local pizzeria and battles Rosa daily about who's the better crooner: Sinatra or Martin; and Sophia, who falls in and out of love daily. Plus a trio of Full Gospel ladies who love their sequins and cruises! Thompson has filled this book to overflowing with delightful and funny characters who will keep readers laughing. Bella is sweet and almost perfect, but her faith is what makes the reader root for her to succeed and get her man.

Thanks so much for the sweet review! I'm tickled that you liked the book. Just wait till you see what's happening in book three! Bella's Italian relatives are coming for Laz and Rosa's wedding. (Can you imagine?) The house is going to be filled to overflowing. Oh, and Sal's coming from NJ to fetch Guido. Will he take the ornery parrot back to Atlantic City. . .or won't he? Only the author knows for sure!

Sounds like a fun book, Christy!  By the way, if you look to the bar on the right side of the page, you'll see that I brushed up the info on this book a bit.  I changed the title, updated the wiki, added the tag "books" so that this review will end up in Lunch's books archive, as well as added a picture.  I did that by pressing the little yellow pencil symbols.  Sometimes, when I have time and I happen to catch one of the topics that you add without this information, I help you update it, but sometimes, it's slips by me, so here's information on how you can update wikis yourself. 

I actually sent you a message about this, but I'm not sure if you ever got it, so here it is again!  Oh, and another thing, if you want to speed past this process, the Lunch This tool actually works great on Amazon by picking up all this information for you.  Feel free to let me know if you ever have any questions about this, Christy.  I'm more than happy to help! :)
