What’s an American girl with a big mouth—but an equally big heart—to do?

Lizzie Nichols has a problem, and it’s not just that she has no 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. The real problem is that Lizzie can’t keep anything to herself. When she opens her big mouth in London, her good intentions get 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 on a train and 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 is 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.

    " Meg Cabot does good again in the writing of Queen Of Babble! Lizzie Nichols, a quirky, quick witted, and smart 22 year old sure has had a lot of things going on with her life! I think that Meg Cabot does a good job of creating each of her main characters in all her books very different, yet the same, in the way that they are all fun-loving girls that you would want to be best friends with.
