Series: Queen of Babble #1
What's an American girl with a big mouth, but an equally big heart, to do?
Lizzie Nichols has a problem, and it isn't that she doesn't have the slightest idea what she's going to do with her life, or that she's blowing what should be her down payment on a cute little Manhattan apartment on a trip to London to visit her long-distance boyfriend, Andrew. But what's the point of planning for the future when she's done it again? See, Lizzie can't keep her mouth shut. And it's not just that she can't keep her own secrets, she can't keep anything to herself.
This time when she opens her big mouth, her good intentions get Andrew in major hot water. So now Lizzie's stuck in London with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date written on her non-refundable airline ticket.
Fortunately, there's Shari, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, who's spending her summer in southern France, catering weddings with her boyfriend, Chaz, in a sixteenth-century château. One call and Lizzie's on a train to Souillac. Who cares if she's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? One glimpse of gorgeous Château Mirac - not to mention gorgeous Luke, the son of Château Mirac's owner - and she's smitten.
But while most caterers can be trusted to keep a secret, Lizzie's the exception. And no sooner has the first cork been popped than Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and it looks like Château Mirac is in danger of becoming a lipo-recovery spa. As if things aren't bad enough, her ex-boyfriend Andrew shows up looking for "closure" (or at least a loan), threatening to ruin everything, especially Lizzie's chance at ever finding real love...
Unless she can figure out a way to use that big mouth of hers to save the day.
Queen of Babble is seriously hilarious
Thoughts on Queen of Babble
I recently read another book by Meg Cabot and thought that is was very funny. So I read another one and loved that one even more. So I picked this one up in hopes that I would love this one as well. It didn’t disappoint.
I’m going through the biggest chick lit phase of my life right now. It seems like every other book that I read is chick lit! I’m trying to find more and more authors to read in the genre because I can’t seem to get enough (so feel free to send recommendations my way!)
The summary of this book had me laughing, so I knew the book would as well. The main character, Lizzie, is just someone that I think a lot of people can relate to. I have a hard time keeping information to myself and “over sharing” happens to a lot of us. I think that’s why I found it so funny, because I could see myself doing the same thing.
And hello, France!? Such a great setting for a book. I feel the need to fly to the other side of the world now. Do yourself a favor and dive into this book. You won’t be sorry. Although your abs might hurt from laughing.
