What’s an American girl with a big mouth, but an equally big heart, to do?
Lizzie Nichols has a problem, and it isn’t that she doesn’t have the slightest idea what she’s going to do with her life, or that she’s blowing what should be her down payment on a cute little Manhattan apartment on a trip to London to visit her long-distance boyfriend, Andrew. What’s the point of planning for the future when she’s done it again? See, Lizzie can’t keep her mouth shut. And it’s not just that she can’t keep her own secrets, she can’t keep anything to herself.
This time when she opens her big mouth, her good intentions get Andrew in major hot water. Now Lizzie’s stuck in London with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date written on her non-changeable airline ticket.
Fortunately, Lizzie’s best friend and college roommate is spending her summer in the south of France, catering weddings in a chateau. One call and Lizzie’s on a train to Paris. Who cares if she speaks only rudimentary French? One glimpse of gorgeous Chateau Mirac — not to mention gorgeous Luke, Chateau Mirac’s owner — and she’s smitten.
But while most caterers can be trusted to keep a secret, Lizzie’s the exception. And no sooner has the first cork been popped than Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and it looks like Chateau Mirac is in danger of becoming a lipo-recovery spa. As if things aren’t bad enough, ex-boyfriend Andy shows up looking for “closure” (or at least a loan), threatening to ruin everything, especially Lizzie’s chance at ever finding real love — unless she can figure out a way to use that big mouth of hers to save the day.

Being a blabber mouth, this book taught me a few things concerning my disease(I really thought that it is a disease). I wish I had the same fate as Lizzie(excluding the part about her ex boyfriend and the pity thingy, like, seriously?). Meeting a boy in the train that leads you to paradise. That is so sweet. Except the fact that he has a super bitchy(sorry for the word!) girlfriend who wants to turn the paradise into a healing place for patients who have undergone liposuction. That is so evil.
Lizzie’s major is so unusual. I’ve never heard it before. And I love it. I’m not that fashionable but I do appreciate it. It is a very unique talent she has, rehabilitating(is the term right?) vintage dresses. So cool. Wish I could do that.
