Goodreads blurb:
Ever wonder how Italian sounds with a Southern drawl?

Bella Rossi's life is just starting to get interesting. When her Italian-turned-Texan parents hand over the family wedding-planning business, Bella quickly books a Boot-Scootin' wedding that would make any Texan proud. There's only one catch--she doesn't know a thing about country music. Where will she find a deejay on such short notice who knows his Alan Jackson from his George Strait? And will Bella ever get to plan her own wedding?

Fun, fresh, and full of surprises, this flavorful combination of Italian and Tex-Mex highlights the hilarity that ensues when cultures clash.

My thoughts:
Chick-lit is one genre that I have always tried to avoid, so I don’t know what made me download this book from Amazon.  But I am so glad that I did.  I was laughing all the way through.  What a quick, fun read.

When an old traditional extended Italian family meets a true-blue cowboy family, everyone is blown away including our heroine.

The book opens with Bella determined to plan an old country and western wedding for her first clients at her Wedding Service Business she has taken over from her parents.  The problem is that Bella doesn’t know anything about country music.  She overhears an conversation and assumes that DJ is in fact the deejay she has been looking for.  You will giggle your way through their first meeting.  And the giggling will not stop for a long time!  Bella’s crazy family and friends keep the hilarious situations coming and although most seem a little far fetched, it was the perfect remedy for my reading depression.

This is a fluffy, bubblegum read with lots of Christian undertones but it is perfect for a lazy afternoon to just draw you away from the world.
