Read full description of the books Fools Rush in:Note to self: do not download free Kindle books from Amazon. These books are free for a reason and that reason is that very few people would willingly pay to read this garbage. I think the author meant well when she tried to combine cheese read chick lit with contemporary Christian fiction. She probably figured that the blending of the two genres would bring more readers to Fools Rush In, which to my dismay, is the first book in a series! Ugh!
When I downloaded this book to my phone, I thought "Yay! Free read!" No where in the description did I read anything about this being a Christian novel, but I quickly figured it out with the scripture references, Bible reading in bed, and the constant prayers by all characters involved. This didn't bother me all that much, but I could see where it would piss off a lot of readers and make them put the book down.
Not me though. I plugged on. I met and followed the lives of the most flat and stereotypical characters in chick lit. Bella Rossi is the ugly Italian daughter in a large, extended Italian family that eats a lot and owns a pizza parlor. The family has mob connections from their time living in New Jersey, which was before they moved to Galveston Island, Texas where this atrocious story takes place.
Bella the ugly duckling grew up Methodist in Texas and knows nothing about cowboy boots or country music. Really? You mean to tell me that she never went to a high school dance or to a shopping mall? I'm sure cowboy boots and country music are known by all Texans, even if they don't like either one of them. Oh and the mobster's bird is named Guido? Really? What is this? The Christian Jersey Shore?
Bella, the shallow and stereotypical protagonist, is responsible for her family's wedding facility, which she constantly refers to as the wedding facility. It wore on my nerves. She thinks themed weddings are her ticket to making the facility she named "Club Wed" a success. Her first wedding is a boot scooting country wedding, but, as we all now know, she knows nothing about country music or boot scooting. She needs to find a DJ to play the country music she knows nothing about and ends up hiring a guy named DJ instead.
Enter Bella's love interest, DJ. He's a country cowboy with baby blue eyes. Oh how she loved looking into his baby blues. Oh how her heart melted when she looked into his baby blues. Oh how her stomach fluttered when she looked into his baby blues! I just vomited in my mouth a little just recounting the dozens of times DJ's eyes were referred to as baby blues. Can we be anymore cliched?
Oh yes, we can! DJ's brother's name is Bubba and he makes barbecue. I couldn't make up crap this bad. Bubba ends up wooing Bella's best friend Jenna, who forgets all about her fiance working on an offshore oil rig to save up money for their wedding. For being a Christian book, nothing was said about this blatant infidelity. I guess we were supposed to assume that nothing but heavy flirting and vomit inducing staring into baby blues occurred between these two love birds and that all was well when Jenna and Bubba told the offshore drilling boyfriend the truth over a pizza at the Rossi family pizza parlor.
I could go on and on with the atrocities committed by the author as she tried to write an engaging and entertaining Christian novel. Instead, I'm going to end this review, walk away, let my blood pressure go back down to normal, and thank God that I won't have to read any more of her books.
Read information about the authorMy name is Janice Thompson. (You will find me published under Janice Hanna, Janice Hanna Thompson, Janice A. Thompson as well.)
I’m a Christian freelance author of novels, non-fiction books, magazine articles and musical comedies for the stage. I live in the Houston area, where the heat and humidity tend to reign, regardless of the season.
I’m the mother of four beautiful daughters, (Randi, Courtney Rae, Megan and Courtney Elizabeth. Yes, I really do have two daughters named Courtney! Long story…) I also have the three prettiest granddaughters any Nana could hope for – Madysen Lynae, Avery Rae and Peyton Renae. Grandbaby #4, Ethan Ames, was just born in the winter of ‘09 and baby Boston Craig just arrived in the spring of ‘10. Another baby girl is on the way – baby Brooke!
Our family is extremely active in local ministry. My oldest daughter, Randi, leads worship in the Houston area, Courtney Rae leads worship at her church in Montana, Megan works with children at our local church and Courtney Elizabeth sings on the worship team at her church in Michigan. I’m thrilled to have four grown daughters who love the Lord (and several granddaughters who one day will)!
What I Do
I’m a writer by trade, but wear many other hats, as well. Currently, I spend a lot of my time working as a freelance editor and teaching writing. I enjoy public speaking (promoting books, or teaching from the Bible). Please see my speaking topics page for more information. These days I’m also very busy with my new online writing course, “Becoming a Successful Freelance Writer.” To learn more, visit my site: www.freelancewritingcourses.com
I home-schooled my four daughters (for eleven years) carrying them each through to graduation. I taught drama and creative writing for several years at a Christian school of the arts. I’ve also directed a youth choir and stayed active in the home-school community (including public speaking to local home-school groups). I directed the “Out There! Drama Ministry” – a group of artists in their teens and twenties who traveled the globe presenting the gospel message through the arts.
I am passionate about my faith and do all I can to share the joy of the Lord with others, which is why I particularly enjoy writing.
Why I Write
I’ve been writing since childhood. In fact, the first novel I remember crafting was in the sixth grade. I had consumed every Bobbsey Twins book on the shelves and ached for another one, so I created a new adventure for the characters I had grown to love. Of course, I was far too young to understand the concept of plagiarism at that time! I started writing “seriously” in the early 90’s. Since then, I’ve been blessed to have nearly fifty articles published, along with several novels.

*NOTE FROM JANICE*
Those of you who’ve been reading my romances over the past several years know me as Janice A. Thompson. My joy is mixed with a smidgeon of sorrow as I explain the change in my last name for some of my current releases.
I recently lost my father to bone marrow cancer. His last name (Hanna) is my maiden name—and it’s a name that means even more to me now that he is gone. In memory of my father, I will be using the Hanna name in my upcoming Barbour and Summerside books. My Revell books will still release under Janice Thom
