Review by Esther Seim, 15
Bella, a young, single woman lives at home in a small Texas town with her eccentric Italian family. When her father decides to give his wedding facility to Bella, she feels confused. After all, how could a woman who’d never married plan weddings that would end “happily ever after?” Despite her worries, Bella reopens the wedding facility as “Club-Wed” and advertises for themed weddings. She is very excited when she gets her first clients who want a boot-scootin’ cowboy wedding with everything from cowboy boots full of flowers for centerpieces to an old-fashioned pot of beans hanging over a campfire for the reception meal. Yet things turn out to be disastrous (and partly wonderful at the same time) when the handsome deejay Bella hires turns out to not really be who she thinks he is.
Janice Thompson delivers again with her hilarious antics! I absolutely love all of her books, and this one is no exception. I read it over and over again, never failing to have a good laugh at the funny scenes. This book is full of adventures, including the reformation of a cursing parrot, eyebrows getting blown off, and plenty of humorous arguments between Bella’s live-in aunt and uncle. If you get this book, I’ll guarantee that you won’t want to put it down.
