"Fools Rush In" Review
Bella Rossi may be nearing thirty, but her life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding planning business, Bella is determined not to let them down. She quickly books a "Boot Scoot'n" wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch--she's a country music numbskull because her family only listens to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. Where will she find a DJ on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his Keith Urban?
When a misunderstanding leads her to the DJ (and man) of her dreams, things start falling into place. But with a family like hers, nothing is guaranteed. Can the perfect Texan wedding survive a pizza-making uncle with mob ties, an aunt who is a lawsuit waiting to happen, and a massive delivery of 80 cowboy boots? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding?
The book was free so no complaint on the cost. The book didn't start out to bad, but about half-way through the book the author lost track of the plot, trying to add every reference to religion and scripture I guess she could think of. So when I reached the half-way mark of the book, I almost couldn't take it any longer. Looking back, I wish I had listened to my inner self, and just gave up on this book. Oh. Well. "To late to cry over spilled milk." The book was full of crazy cliche's kind of like the spilled milk cliche'.
First, there's the 'overwhelming' preachiness in this book. The book was not listed in the genre of 'christian.' Had I known about the so called christian theme (and I use the 'christian' theme loosely) of this book, I would have passed this one, even though it was free.
I did not like this book so I am awarding it 1*.

"What is a cozy Mystery?"
A cozy mystery contains no explicit sex and contains no excessive gore or violence. It usually takes place in a close-knit setting with a limited group of suspects. The cozy is light-heart in tone rather than heavy. The main focus of the book is a puzzle and always centers around "whodunit."
