Na Lizzie Nicholsovou se přece jen usmálo štěstí. Má práci, kterou miluje (opravy starých či poškozených značkových svatebních šatů), a lásku svého života, Jeana-Luka. Ten se konečně vyjádřil a požádal ji o ruku a Lizzie, zavalená prací, se připravuje na svatbu snů, která se má konat na snoubencově zámku v jižní Francii.

Update 10/25 - still awesome!

This is the third and last book in the series about "Queen of babbles" and I loved this one. The second book ends in with a cliffhanger and this one picks up where that one left off. However, you can easily read this as a stand-alone novel as well. The story is a classical tale on the theme "insecure girl meets perfect guy – but is he really perfect?".

Lizzie Nichols is a wonderful heroine who works with restoring wedding gowns. She is sincere and truly nice but inse

Meg Cabot's final book in her "Queen of Babble" series.

My biggest problem with this book- and the series in general- is that the first Queen of Babble book doesn't really belong with the last two books. It's as if Cabot just decided to use those same characters in two more books, but just chose to forget about the characterizations she set up in Book One. It's almost as if two different people wrote the books....

On the other hand, I like the heroine a lot. Lizzie Nichols is quite endearing, alt

I read through this book critiquing (Silently, of course...After all, who am I to criticize...Have I written a novel yet?) the characters, writing and lack of tension/surprise/interest in the plot. Yikes!
Crystal
First off, let me say that I only read this book because the book club I'm trying to get into picked this as their read this month. I am only sticking with the bookclub after this book, because the person hosting sent out an email apology for how bad this book is. So I know I'm not going to be surrounded by women gushing about this stupid book.
Aaaagggggghhhh! Awful book. In the beginning I could only stand to read this one chapter at a time. As I got closer to the end, I read a big chunk at once

If you didn't believe me before... believe it now - I'm a sucker for a Meg Cabot book! A very nice bit of fluff - a true summer read. I've totally added Chaz to my list of literary men that have ruined me for real men. I'm sorry, but remembering that stupid stuff, the "I like a side of ice with my wine" stuff, is totally romantic gold. I was actually just channel surfing the other night and saw Kevin James' (The King of Queens) stand-up routine... he was advising the men of the audience to remem ...more

Okay, I'm over last episode of American Idol,
I think I can handle this review now...

I looooved this book! everything turned out the way I was hoping
but somehow it was all better than what I imagined,

the answers to previous questions and actions were smoothly stated
and Lizzie finally makes a decition, I love how much Lizzie grew as a character,
she stopped being that small town girl with a big mouth that wanted to marry someone
sooooo bad that she was gonna do it with someone she didn't love (oh y

Lizzie wakes up to the new year in the arms of..... Chaz! The streaming images of her memory flashes to the night before and the beard burn all over her face only confirms it! As if she isn’t surprised enough, who would happen to turn up on her doorstep, but Luke. And just like that he slips a huge rock on her finger and she gives Chaz the boot!

So, why does she get these warm tingly feelings whenever she thinks about Chaz, and she so conveniently breaks out in hives whenever she thinks about get

Well, I am sick enough to skip classes for a couple of days, and too groggy to read anything of substance. So I chose this trilogy because Meg Cabot has proven to be someone who writes just that - books with no substance. I needed something light and brainless, and that's what I got. In that sense, it was good...Well, adequate.

I'm giving it two stars because Cabot's main characters are indistinguishable from each other - Lizzie in these books is exactly like what's-her-name in 'size 14 is not fa

Meg Cabot, as you know, is the author of the Princess Diary series which were written for teenage girls. This book is supposed to be written for adults and I was curious to see how well Meg Cabot made that transition. Unfortunately, not so well. The characters are older but their mentality is just as young. I kept wondering why this young woman who is the main character was so clueless about herself. I realize it's because she is still writing as though the character is adolescent instead of adu ...more

Really cute. I hope there's a 4th to this series.
Ashley
I've already mentioned how I feel about the sequels to Queen of Babble , and this, the third book in the series, is no exception. I mean, it's nice to read more about Lizzie, and to have some finality to the story. But I didn't really think this book was all that interesting. Sharri wasn't in it enough, Ava was pointless until the end, Chaz was (understandably) a dick, and Luke... This book (well, and the previous, kind of) ruined the too-perfect guy from the first book. I'd definitely recommend ...more

:-p

This is the third installment in a series (after Queen of Babble and Queen of Babble in the Big City) featuring Lizzie Nichols. The book starts with Lizzie having spent the night with Luke’s (Lizzie’s ex-boyfriend) best friend Chaz. However, Luke suddenly reappears and asks Lizzie to marry him, she consents. Most of the book is devoted to this love triangle and

Poslední díl ze série Úspěšné smolařky mám úspěšně za sebou a s klidným svědomím mohu říci, že když jsem četla první díl, nenapadlo mne, že by takto mohla celá trilogie skončit. A víte co? Jsem velmi ráda, že to dopadlo právě takto.
Musím připomenout, že druhý díl byl pro mne spíše zklamáním, za to se autorka vytáhla ve finále. Velká část knihy patřila jako vždy Lizzie a tentokrát Chazovi. To je tak příjemný kluk. Docela často jsem se smála jeho hláškám a názorům, měla chuť ho občas praštit i ob

3.5 actually.

I thought I'd end up skim reading this one, but actually, I got sucked right into it and enjoyed myself a lot. Fun. Entertaining, light read. I liked it better than the middle book Queen of Babble in the Big City.

I enjoyed the first book and this one most. However, I have some problems with it as a series, because to me the Luke in book one is NO WAY the same Luke as in book three. There is just absolutely no way the Luke we learned to love in book one and the way he supported Lizz

The vacillating between Luke and Chaz at the beginning of this book went on waaaay too long, in my opinion. (Also, I could not read the name Chaz without thinking about how the girls on Go Fug Yourself use the name Chaz as a synonym for douchebag, which was pretty distracting since he plays such a major role in this book.) It seemed like most of the action in this book took place in concentrated bursts. (I know when it rains it pours, etc., etc., but are we really supposed to believe that Lizzie ...more

Satisfying end to the trilogy. I recommend starting with the first book. Fun summer reads - in August or February!

"To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the wedding cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up."

--Germaine Greer

Beginning moments afer the end of Queen of Babble in the Big City , Lizzie Nichols finds herself suddenly engaged to Luke, while trying to figure out what to do with Chaz (having the honor of being both Luke's best friend and Lizzie's best friend's ex-boyfriend), who is still asleep up in her apartment. Unsure of her feelings for Chaz (and relatively certain "nothing happened" as she is still in her Spanx), Lizzie begins to prepare for a French wedding and the eventual meeting of her midwestern ...more

I don't know why this book took me so much longer to finish than the other two. I just didn't like it as much.

The story wasn't as addictive, I guess. I appreciated that there were some twists, it wasn't as predictable as the other two either. Lizzie isn't the one who gets married!

The twists took some getting used to and I'm still not sure I was a fan of them.

A good end to the series though. I'll miss little Nichols.
Mandymac
Loved the ending to the series! Chaz has made my "list" of favorite guys, mostly because he reminds me alot of my own husband (dressing style, the sports thing and the sarcastic humor). Some have criticized how "Luke" was written in the end but girls, lets face it, guys really ARE like that. Meg did a good job reminding us that "princes" can also be cads at the same time and not to overlook what it means to have someone love you for who you are (and who they are). I highly recommend this entire ...more

I knew what I was getting into since I read the other two books but at some points this was just drivel.

Another reviewer (on the second book's review) mentioned that she felt that the feelings Chaz had for Lizzie came from nowhere. I definitely found that still true in this book. The whole time Lizzie is trying to not admit her feelings for Chaz, I just felt like it wasn't real.

And how many times can she say "I'm sleeping with my fiance's best friend and my best friend's ex-boyfriend, " really?

I'm glad I read this book because it was a nice end to the series. However, the book was really slow at points. Don't get me wrong it had its funny points, but Lizzie's undecisiveness really takes away from the story. Lizzie is torn between Luc who comes back and proposes and his best friend Chaz. Yes Chaz who is her best friend's ex-boyfriend Cabot brings back Tiffany from book 2 and of course Gran comes along for the ride. The turning point is when a loved one passes away and Lizzie is forced ...more

The second and third book in the series were awful!! She totally ruined the romance of the first one...

It's as if Jane Austen decided to write Pride and Prejudice II and III and by the end of the third book had Mr. Darcy being a real prick, had Elisabeth and Mr. Bigley secretly in love with each other and getting married, and dear Jane become a lesbian. It would spoil the story, wouldn't it?

So please authors, if you don't know how to develop a love story, don't go ruining it to sell more books..

Oh boy where do I start on this one? While I certainly wouldn't say I hated it as I did finish it and it passed the time back and forth to work, there were several times I wondered why I was still hanging in there.

The biggest pro for this book was I enjoyed the narrator so it was an easy audio book to listen to.

However, there were so many cons...

I got pretty annoyed with the main character, Lizzy, whenever she talked about why she "loved" her fiancé Luke- it was all superficial things like his

Rating based on my 1 - 3 star chick lit scale.

This is my second queen of babble book. I was not as charmed as with the first book. It felt like the outcome was known from the start. Generally too predictable.

The author also starts each chapter with a tip on weddings. In Queen of Babble in the Big City, it was enjoyable because I learned things about dresses I never knew. Here it got old after a while.

It's a decent book. But I don't think I need to read another QUeen of Babble book.
Danielle Wood
So this is the final book of the Queen of Babble series and I've loved every minute of them! I've laughed, I've cried and I've been sat on the edge of my seat waiting for the inevitable to happen! In this final book it shows how Lizzie betters herself and gradually moves higher up, personally and professionally.

I've absolutely loved Lizzie's character and have enjoyed seeing her go from a college graduate to a wedding gown specialist and watching her relationship with Chaz flourish.
