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.

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!

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.
