Lizzie Nichols has a problem: she can't keep anything to herself. And when she opens her big mouth on a trip to London, her good intentions get her long-distance beau, Andrew, in major hot water. Now she's stuck in England with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date on her nonrefundable airline ticket. Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, Shari, is spending her summer catering weddings in a sixteenth-century château in southern France. Who cares if Lizzie's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? She's off to Souillac to lend a helping hand!

One glimpse of gorgeous Château Mirac—and of gorgeous Luke, the son of the château's owner—and Lizzie's smitten. But thanks to her chronic inability to keep a secret, before the first cork has been popped Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and Château Mirac is on the road to becoming a lipo-recovery spa. Add to that the arrival of ex-beau Andrew, who's looking for "closure" (or at least a loan), and everything—including Lizzie's shot at true love—is in la toilette . . . unless she can figure out some way to use her big mouth to save the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laugh out loud This was my first Meg Cabot book I ever read after the author was recommended to me by a friend. It got me hooked. Definitely a laugh out laugh series that also has you cringe at some points when you want to slap some sense into Lizzie. Overall a light hearted and funny book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Babble Had No Substance Well. What to say about this novel? It is a cross between Bridget Jones and Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophia Kinsella. A clueless heroine falters through life, looking for love and hiding secrets from her family and friends because she was just too distracted to handle her affairs. Although endearing to some, at a point between the fourth and fifth chapters I wanted to yell at the character "How could you be so stupid? Do you realize how insipid you are?!" I settle for grimacing and continuing on quietly, as I was on public transit at the time. The character seems to go beyond the usual follies and is actually quite idiotic. Maybe it just seems that way because this theme has been done to death and I expect future characters to learn by past example. In the end everything turns out alright I guess and it continues on in other books in this series. I don't think I could stomach another adventure where the outcome is so obvious to the reader, but so not even on the character's radar. I am sure the Princess Diaries, written by the same author, are lovely novels as they come highly recommended by many young adult genre-loving readers, but I am beginning to think there was a reason this book does not show up on their top 10 lists at all. Save yourself some time and just re-read the Shopaholic books instead. At least Becky Bloomwood had a clue, even if just a small one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down This book was such a fun read, and it was impossible to put down. I started it and I was shoved into the world of Lizzie and I didn't want to leave. The characters were great and the dialogue was very believable. This book was a perfect summer read that is nonstop from beginning to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I picked this book up a couple of weeks ago when I saw the display for the new hardcover "Queen of Babble Gets Hitched" book (Call it Vol III in the series). I had never read any Meg Cabot before and decided to test it by reading the first chapter in-store and seeing whether or not I cared to keep reading. ...Let's just say, I read the first three chapters in-store and could not stop reading! I, of course, purchased the book and the only thing I can fault Cabot for is not making them long enough, because I am so intrigued that I end up reading through the book in a day or two, tops. As far as chicklit characters go, Lizzie is definitely on the naive side, but it is written in such a fashion that the reader is in on the joke. Furthermore, her slight innocence makes her endearing and will remind the reader of their own silly antics and rationalizing-away. All-in-all I rate this a fantastic chicklit read that rivals Sophie Kinsella. I furthermore recommend the next two books in the series, as they hold their ground and will not disappoint.
