At least Lizzie Nichols knows she has a big mouth. They don't call her the Lizzie Broadcasting System (LBS) for nothing. A fashion history major, Lizzie is a girl after my own heart. Obsessed with vintage frocks, legendary designers and carbs, she is the kind of girl that you can't help but to love.

After graduating from college (if you don't count that senior thesis that she still has to complete) Lizzie decides to head to London to spend the summer with her fabulous boyfriend Andrew. In the three months that they have been dating Lizzie knows that Andrew is the man for her. That is until the first 24 hours of her trip reveals the truth about her "soul mate". He's a habitual liar and gambler who also failed to mention that he still lives with his parents. Well, that's enough to send Lizzie running across the Channel . . . literally.

Making a quick decision to head to France, she decides to spend the rest of her summer with her best friend Shari and her boyfriend Chaz at a quaint and magical vineyard called Mirac. En route, she becomes friendly with Jean-Luc "Luke" de Villiers, a gorgeous and kind, stranger who she feels the need to vent ALL (and I do mean ALL) of her problems to. Upon departing the train at her stop, she discovers that Luke is actually the host of the chateau Mirac ... and now, he knows more about her than he needs to. As Lizzie falls for Luke -- despite his cunning girlfriend and zany family -- she learns about true love in the most romantic country of all.

QUEEN OF BABBLE is sure to have you a bit frustrated with our heroine but fascinated by her nonetheless. Fans of Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) in the "Shopaholic" cycle will definitely enjoy this series as well.
