Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched is the third and seemingly last of the Queen of Babble books by Meg Cabot, which follow the life of Lizzie Nicholls a vintage-loving girl with a talent to refurbish wedding gowns. This book picks up immediately after Book Two (Queen of Babble in the Big City) ends, with dreamy/perfect Luke finally proposing to Lizzie.

Things should be perfect, this was just what Lizzie always wanted, her career is picking up and the man of her dreams just proposed (after breaking her heart a few days before by saying he didn't see her in his future); but there are some problems on this happy-happy picture: One, that Lizzie just almost slept with Chaz, her best friends' ex and Luke's best friend; and Two: She breaks into hives each time she thinks about marrying Luke.

What follows is Lizzie dealing with it all.

I liked this book but I'm not crazy about it, Queen of Babble started as a summer fling and it sort of outgrew itself. Just like the relationship between Luke and Lizzie, by now, Queen of Babble 3, things don't ring quite so true anymore and one wonders why Lizzie can't see it.

But I'll give Ms Cabot props for trying to do something different, instead of a more linear happy ending; the ending IS happy and satisfactory, it just doesn't happen to be my favorite book
