Swinging On A Star is chick lit at it's best! I read Where Fools Rush In (the first book in the series) and absolutely loved the book. I couldn't wait for the second book to come out. Where Fools Rush In had more excitement and that yummy, can't wait to read the next page. Swinging On A Star is a good read but lacks that initial excitement that tends to capture a reader....until the reader is about three quarters of the way through the book then the excitement begins. Building on the relationship of Bella and her boyfriend, D. J., Ms. Thompson brings the second book Swinging On A Star to a satisfactory conclusion...BUT with a hint of a book 3....Surely there's to be another wedding? I love the what one of the sisters says at the end...."Travel with your sisters in Christ. Where two or more are gathered . . . there's bound to be a party!" You can read one book without the other but it's better and sweeter to read both.
