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. 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. Now Lizzie's stuck in London with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date written on her non-changeable airline ticket.

Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate is spending her summer in the south of France, catering weddings in a chateau. One call and Lizzie's on a train to Paris. Who cares if she speaks only rudimentary French? One glimpse of gorgeous Chateau Mirac -- not to mention gorgeous Luke, Chateau 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 Chateau Mirac is in danger of becoming a lipo-recovery spa. As if things aren't bad enough, ex-boyfriend Andy 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.

This is very funny book about a girl who can not keep a secret of her own or anyone elses. This book is definetly a laugh out loud comedy. It also has a little romance every chick book needs.

Queen of Babble in the Big city and Queen of Babble Gets Hitched are also both juswt as good or even better.

P.S I am not an adult I am a Young Adult and I still loved it. But if your not known for maturity then its not for you.

This book was amazing, it's about a young women who has just graduated from college and was about to take her "fashion history" degree when she founds out that actually she still didn't graduate and that she has to write an essay while she's in Europe wheer she's visiting her british boyfriend "Andrew". But what she doesn't know is that Andrew wasn't the same guy that she met few months earlier, he lives with his parents... he gambles and guess what he told his parents and family that she's a fatty! So she decides to leave to Paris to join her bf and her boyfriend but she didn't assume that she was about to meet the man of her dream who is unfortunately engaged to a goddess! Check out the ending of the book!

Lizzie Nichols has a small problem. She can't seem to keep her mouth shut. It doesn't matter if they're her secrets or someone else's, she just can't seem to keep them to herself. But is this a good thing or a bad thing. When she says something to get her boyfriend Andrew in trouble, she realizes that she can't be with him. So she decides to travel from London to France, where her best friend Shari is staying for the summer while helping to cater weddings where they're staying. She boards the train unsure where Shari will be, since she's not responding to her phone. But when she unloads all her stress onto the guy she sits next to on the train, she realizes that her summer will be very interesting.

Warning! Do not read this book unless you're a mature reader. Like, you can handle hearing adult content without developing an extremely dirty mind or getting upset. Remember, adult books are meant for adults (or people with the maturity level of an adult).

This was an really good book. I really enjoyed it. The main character was very interesting and had a lot of personality. All the supporting characters were very real too.

The book's plot was very interesting as well. It was difficult for me to put it down. I got so interested in the story that I almost didn't hear the bell in study hall! I would recommend this book if you are a very mature reader and you like Meg Cabot's other books. Also, if you like fiction books that you can easily relate to, go for it!

I love, love, love this book! Let me count the ways. lol. I love the fact that blabber mouth Lizzy thinks that she's going to die without Diet Coke. I also love how she just falls in love with random guys and starts planning the wedding. I love her best friend Shari who is a sane girl, trying to keep Lizzy sane, herself. This is one of the best books of the year that I have read. I had to run and grab Queen of Babble In The Big City, because I couldn't get enough of her babbling.

I can tell you for a fact, that if you want a great quick read, this one is for you!

Meg Cabot creates yet another charming, relatable character in chatterbox Lizzie.

Fresh out of university, with her thesis still to go, we find Lizzie going off to visit the love of her life, Andrew who lives in England.

And whom she doesn't really know that well...

Disaster ensues and Lizzie finds herself joining her friends at Château Mirac, only to find herself falling in love with the son of the owner of the place. Too bad he, Luke, already has a girlfriend.

Tackling french wine, Luke's inane girlfriend and fashion disasters, Meg Cabot's QoB will keep you laughing and rooting for the main character.

I cannot wait until I get a hold of the next novel. I have it all booked and everything, and I CAN'T wait :)

As said, what I love about Cabot's writing is that it really catches me by surprise every time: with the quick with and hilarious humor. While she doesn't write as deeply as others, they are light and funny which really brightens your day.

This book isn't meant for a younger audience though, so be warned :)

I love you meg cabot. This is a great novel. Her best yet. It is great and original and funny. This book is great and the main character is extremely likable even in all her flaws. This book is a quick read despite it's 300 hundred because it is so fun and enjoyable you forget how long it is. You will fall in love with Luke the way i have and you will laugh all the way through.
