Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot

I have read this series since it began and am always looking forward to the newest addition. I know what to expect from the series, a light-hearted, easy read. I wasn't disappointed this time and it was a pleasant, B read.

From Amazon:

Big mouth. Big heart.
Big wedding. Big problems.
It's the wedding of the century!
Things are looking up at last for Lizzie Nichols. She has a career she loves in the field of her choice (wedding gown restoration), and the love of her life, Jean-Luc, has finally proposed. Life's become a dizzying whirl of wedding gown fittings—not necessarily her own—as Lizzie prepares for her dream wedding at her fiancé's château in the south of France.
But the dream soon becomes a nightmare as the best man—whom Lizzie might once have accidentally slept with . . . no, really, just slept—announces his total lack of support for the couple, a sentiment the maid of honor happens to second; Lizzie's Midwestern family can't understand why she doesn't want to have her wedding in the family backyard; her future, oh-so-proper French in-laws seem to be slowly trying to lure the groom away from medical school and back into investment banking; and Lizzie finds herself wondering if her Prince Charming really is as charming as she once believed.
Is Lizzie really ready to embrace her new role as wife and mistress of Château Mirac? Or is she destined to fall into another man's arms . . . and into the trap of becoming a Bad Girl instead?

This book wasn't anything special or spectacular and will not stick with me for very long, I am sure. But it was a nice read and a good distraction from some of the things going on in my life. I could relate to how Lizzie was feeling and all that was going on in her life. When reading one of Meg Cabot's books, the only expectations I have is something cute and that is exactly what I got. I probably would have enjoyed this book a bit more a few years ago when I was really into chick lit, but now I really don't read this genre. I do think that Ms. Cabot has a wonderful voice and really shows how people feel and their motivations for their actions, which is always refreshing.

Yesterday I went to the library to pick up a book for my mom and ended up grabbing two more for myself. It is a sickness, I tell you. So I will be reading another library book next, Good Intentions by Patricia O'Brien, another new to me author. I hope it is good. It is really hot out right now and I think I will just jump right back in to the next book. Happy Reading!
