Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot

Front Flap: Big mouth. Bit 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 fiance's chateau in the south of France. But the dream soon becomes a nightmare as the best man- whom Lizzie might once have accidentally have 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 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 Chateau Mirac? Or is she destined to fall into another man's arms... and into the trap of becoming a Bad Girl instead? I love this book. It's so quirky and fun. It's so fun and funny to read how Lizzie is debating about liking/loving Chaz or not and everything around her knows it's so true! And how her grandma dies was so unexpected and sad! But it was tricky to have Luke cheating on her while she was hooking up with his best friend, or best friend's ex-boyfriend as Lizzie always said. I hope there is another one coming out. Ican't really tell by the ending if there would be one, but I'd def be reading it.
