Swinging on a Star - a Review

Janice Thompson's Fools Rush In was the sweetest and most hilarious Christian fiction I had read in a while, so I had high hopes for the sequel, Swinging on a Star. It did not disappoint.

There's a fine line between ambitious and crazy.

Bella's just not sure where it is.

Bella Rossi's life is nearing perfection. Not only does she have the perfect guy, but she's also running a successful wedding-planning business and is about to plan its most ambitious wedding yet--a Renaissance-themed fairy tale come true, complete with period costumes and foods, horse-drawn carriages, and even a castle. There's only one hitch. The best man just happens to be Hollywood's hottest and most eligible bachelor, and he's showing an interest in Bella. Oh, and did we mention he's staying at her house to avoid the paparazzi?
With all the pressure surrounding this wedding, Bella's not sure she's going to make it through. Add her starstruck sister and her feuding aunt and uncle, and you've got a recipe for disaster--and a lot of laughs.

You know those chick flicks where improbable happening is piled on improbable happening, where everything almost goes horribly wrong but ends up fantastically right and where every character is loveable and crazy? That's what Swinging on a Star was like.

Highly recommended for a sweet and hilarious evening's reading.

I really, really liked the first book in this series but never got my hands on the other books.

It's not often I find contemporary books that I like, so I really need to find these other books :)
