Queen of Babble in the Big City

I like chick lit at times, and Meg Cabot provides some of the best. Queen of Babble in the Big City picks up where the first book left off, with Lizzie and Luke moving to NYC. Luke is studying to be a doctor, while Lizzie is hell-bent on finding work in her chosen field: refurbishing wedding dresses. Things, of course, do not go as planned; Lizzie immediately begins living with Luke in his mother's posh NYC apartment rather than moving in with her BFF, Shari and there's no work to be found in the fashion industry. Somehow, though, our indomitable Lizzie not only finds a job (non-paying) doing what she loves, but she also lands a receptionist job while she dreams of Luke asking her to marry him. But do things go smoothly? Of course not. And I'd not want them to, since that's precisely why I picked this book up in the first place. You can read my more comprehensive review at amazon found at

Rain? What is this rain you speak of?

(I've not seen any - not a drop, and I am not kidding! - since Feb!

Here's hoping you get it since I won't!
