A funny conclusion to a great series!
Ah, at long last I made time for the last book in the Weddings by Bella series and it was so worth it! I have a new appreciation for seeing the Rossi/Neeley clan in Thompson's latest series, Weddings by Design. I would hate thinking that It Had to be You was my last chance to spend time with this crazy family. I might have read slower. Thankfully though, it isn't. :-)
In this enjoyable wrap-up we get to read about the moment all of us have been waiting for since Fools Rush In, Bella and DJ's wedding! I have loved every moment watching the two become close friends while they dated/courted. That's how romance should be portrayed.
As far as complaints go mine are minor. Everything after Rosa and Laz's wedding seemed rushed and it didn't flow with the rest of the book for me. Other than a couple winks at the honeymoon, Thompson kept the book very clean. I easily recommend this one to anyone who's read the previous two books or enjoys a clean rom-com. :-)
I purchased this book, no review required.
Bella couldn't be
happier that her long-feuding Aunt Rosa and Uncle Lazarro 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 Lazarro's 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 amidst
Full of laugh-out-loud humor, plenty of Italian passion,
and a bit of Texas gumption, "It Had to Be You" is the satisfying
conclusion to an entertaining series.
