Image of Queen of Babble Gets Hitched

In the final installment of her Queen
of Babble series, Cabot furthers Lizzie Nichols' story, picking up the narrative mere moments from when Queen of Babble in the Big City concluded. It's more of the same fare: Cabot's breezy style is intact, and she cleverly nods at today's young celebrities when Lizzie reforms a Paris Hiltonesque socialite. The wedding trivia that prefaces each
chapter is entertaining, although it borders on the extraneous -- especially since Cabot also tosses in tips for successful weddings for good measure.

When readers last saw Lizzie, she was in a compromising situation with Chaz, her fiance Luke's best friend. Now she's left to her own devices at the wedding shop when her boss falls ill and needs surgery and loads of recovery time.

She's kept plenty busy as she analyzes her feelings for Luke -- and now Chaz -- gossips with her wily grandmother, keeps her celebrity friend safe from paparazzi and designs dress after dress at the wedding shop. Will she ever figure out her life -- especially her love life? (Morrow, Jul., 288 pp., $22.95)
