From New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot comes the hilarious story of a lovable blabbermouth who can't seem to stay out of trouble. . . .

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 on her nonrefundable 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 ch#65533;teau. One call and Lizzie's on a train to Souillae. Who cares if she's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? One glimpse of gorgeous Ch#65533;teau Mirac -- not to mention the gorgeous Luke, the son of Ch#65533;teau 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 Ch#65533;teau 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, including Lizzie's chance at finding real love. . . .

Unless she can figure out a way to use that big mouth of hers to save the day.

* This book is silly, but I kind of liked it anyway.

* What I liked best is that descriptions of the characters' outfits abound in this book. In fact, part of the plot hinges upon a vintage cocktail dress that the heroine restores. I love reading about clothes.

This book is so funny! Definitely for older audiences, though.

This was a good book but I didn't love it as much as other Meg Cabot books. Haven't decided if I'm going to read the rest of the series or not.

This is such a good book.

This was a cute story... The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I read a story with the same plotline so this story was predictable a lot of the time... The first time I read a story with this plotline it was soooo cute and romantic and the book became a favorite. The second time I read a story with this plotline was with this book- I thought it was annoying to re-read a story so similar, but since the plotline was so cute, it was all ok in the end... I do recommend this book because it was good... the only reason that my review is slightly negative is because I read something like this book before... but for those who will be reading a story with this kind of plotline for the first time, I imagine it will be very enjoyable!

If you enjoyed the Shopaholic series then your bound to enjoy this book. This is the first book I have ever read by Meg Cabot and I am extremely impressed. This book was an excellent read and I look forward to reading the second book in the series titled "Queen of Babble in the Big City.

"I mean, you meet people, and they seem perfectly nice. And then it turns out that all along they were just lying to you to get you to pay their matriculation fees because they lost all their money in a game of Texas Hold'em."
