When we last left Lizzie Nichols, her recent ex-boyfriend, Luke, had just arrived at her doorway and proposed. Well, in Queen of Babble Gets Hitched you will discover Lizzie said yes! Happiness ensues right? Of course not! This is a Meg Cabot book which ensures that the road to happily-ever-after will be filled with comedic twists and turns.
Lizzie should be celebrating. She is a wedding gown restorer newly engaged! Unfortunately, she almost slept with her fiancé’s best friend the night before the proposal. Chaz, the “almost” man, is hurt, angry, and a mite jealous. He tells Lizzie that far from settling down, Luke is commitment-phobic and too afraid to let Lizzie go. Not the best start to her pending marriage.
In fact, the engagement seems to be getting off on a bad foot altogether. Luke is off making plans of his own, plans that involve Paris, not New York City, where Lizzie is working. Then there is the fact that none of her friends seem to support the match. Trouble is brewing for Lizzie and Luke is only the tip of the iceberg.
Meg Cabot is one of the few authors who could pull off such a major switcheroo. I won’t spoil it for you, but suffice it to say, Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is an emotional rollercoaster. But through it all, there is Lizzie, a quirky, sweet, but very determined woman. She wants to stand on her own two feet doing something she loves, restoring wedding gowns, and heck if she does not pull it off in style. This is a fun book from start to finish. Talk of weddings, love, relationships, and the eclectic vibe of New York City all combine to create an effervescent and enjoyable storyline. If there is one author guaranteed to put a smile on your face, it is Meg Cabot.
