Publisher's Description

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 the chaos?
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.

    I love Janice Thompson's books. They are interlaced with humor, love, Faith and laughter. I find myself unable to put them down, despite how late (or early in the morning) it is. I definitely recommend this book!

    Review : It Had to be You - Janice Thompson - 2010

    In the final book of the Weddings by Bella series , we witness several weddings taking place and engagements galore. The third book focuses on the marriage of Laz and Rosa who finally after many years of debate and stubbornness over who was better Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra have put their views aside and are ready to commit to one another. Bella and her family couldn't be more over the moon , however this wouldn't be a Weddings By Bella book if trouble didn't arise in more than one way. With Bella trying to organise two weddings - her Auntie Rosa's and her own , she really needs an extra pair of hands but when her best friend disappears Bella is left to try and organise everything in time for the perfect day. When Laz's best man former Mobster Sal Lucci turns up , will he tear the happy couple apart as he rips into Laz putting his two cents where it doesn't belong? . Will Bella be able to do a Wedding Planner and pull off not only one perfect wedding but two ?. It Had to be You is the perfect finish to a wonderful series that lovers of movies like 27 Dresses and The Wedding Planner will enjoy. Of course , we can all sit back and imagine what happens when you put a room full of Italians together with half-a dozen Texans - It Had to Be You will have you laughing and crying and once finished craving Pizza with Pepperoni and humming Swing Music.

    Such a delightful, fun experience! It brought back so many memories for me: being very close to a large extended Italian family; coordinating my own daughters extravagant wedding; dancing to a great band; dealing with headstrong ethnic women. So good Id read it again in a heartbeat. I did think hero D.J. was a bit hen-pecked, but he was so sweet and every girls dream. Bella seemed confused a lot, but that made her more human. I sympathized with her about not being able to plan her own wedding, but was frustrated with her that she couldnt find a way to step up to the plate. Every single character came alive and demanded attention. As a reader, I felt an intimate part of this crazy family and loved it. Although its a fun romance, actually about several romances, its not a read and toss aside book. Its gripping and has a lot of depth. Not a book to put down after reading a chapter.

    Each time my husband or I pass by this book by Janice Thompson we have to sing a couple lines of the catchy Frank Sinatra tune. I write this review with a heavy heart because this is the last title in the Weddings by Bella series. Bella Rossi, wedding planner and owner of Club-Wed, furiously plans the most important wedding in her young career for her precious Uncle Laz and Aunt Rosa. She is anxious to be done with the wedding because she knows the next wedding in line is her own. Family visits from Italy to attend Laz and Rosas wedding as well as an ex-mob boss and an overzealous swing band, making for an exciting pre-wedding blitz. Major conflict for Bella happens when some other family members decide to plan their weddings very close to her own. Bella is stressed even more when she is ousted permanently from her lifelong bedroom for a construction project to house Laz and Rosa. The icing on the cake for Bella comes when she is forced to room with her sister who insists on talking into the night about her own wedding plans. Bella hits a figurative wall and is forced to slow down. During her down time, she is pampered by her loving family and she is able to re-connect with God which is always a good thing. Thompson outdoes herself, humorously tying up loose ends in the book. She beautifully illustrates how we shouldnt judge people by how they look and to not lash out at people when they severely get on your nerveseven if they are your sister. If I had to say something bad about the book the only thing I could say would be the cover art. By the looks of things, the female cover model seems to have unfortunately wrenched her shoulders out of joint. The male model isnt at all what I would picture to be a Texas cowboy and I would know. He isnt even wearing cowboy boots. This is of course no fault of the author who wonderfully portrayed the Tex-Italian characters in the book.
