Review of Swinging on a Star by Janice Thompson

I used to grab a book and read it fast, like eating a bag of m&m’s the more in my mouth the better. Lately, I’ve been taking my time to enjoy each word and sentence that these Christian authors are giving me to enjoy. I know how long it takes to write a book and to read it as fast as I can so I can open another one just doesn’t seem fair.
This book was an excellent bag of m&m’s! The setting is Galveston, Texas. I can see and feel the gray sand there, the old homes that are still standing after Hurricane Katrina. I can smell the salty water on the pages.
This is book two in the Weddings by Bella series. The first was Fools Rush In. If you haven’t read it, go get it.
Swinging on a Star continues Bella’s story, but you need not read Fools Rush In to enjoy this story, but you’ll want to go back and get it if you haven’t read it.
Bella has the best job ever. She’s a wedding planner, not just a wedding planner as in all white dresses and wedding cake toppers. She does theme weddings. The wedding she’s planning in Swinging on Star is one of her biggest adventures. It’s a Renaissance-themed wedding and what could be better than having a real heart-throb Hollywood celebrity as the best man? He’s available and so is Bella, or is she? D.J. is her boyfriend, but they aren’t engaged yet. Since trouble? Maybe, I’m not telling.
Bella has this glorious event all perfectly planned, except there are a few problems that crop up. One of them is Aunt Rosa is to be featured on the Food Network Channel the day of the wedding rehearsal. The Hollywood Hunk is staying with Bella’s family and Bella must keep him out of sight of those cameras.
Bella does her best to keep him secret, but a secret that good often gets discovered.
Read this book and find out how Bella handles all of this drama and excitement. It’s a good book, don’t read it in one sitting, take your time and enjoy it because the next one isn’t available yet. Thompson is still working on the next book!
