Lizzie Nichols has a problem: she can't keep anything to herself. And when she opens her big mouth on a trip to London, her good intentions get her long-distance beau, Andrew, in major hot water. Now she's stuck in England with no boyfriend and no place to stay until the departure date on her nonrefundable airline ticket. Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend and college roommate, Shari, is spending her summer catering weddings in a sixteenth-century chateau in southern France. Who cares if Lizzie's never traveled alone in her life and only speaks rudimentary French? She's off to Souillac to lend a helping hand!One glimpse of gorgeous Chateau Mirac--and of gorgeous Luke, the son of the chateau's owner--and Lizzie's smitten. But thanks to her chronic inability to keep a secret, before the first cork has been popped Luke hates her, the bride is in tears, and Chateau Mirac is on the road to becoming a lipo-recovery spa. Add to that the arrival of ex-beau Andrew, who's looking for "closure" (or at least a loan), and everything--including Lizzie's shot at true love--is in la toilette . . . unless she can figure out some way to use her big mouth to save the day.

After blasting her cheatin' boyfriend, loudmouth Lizzie finds herself stranded in London. So why not help her caterer friend by bartending weddings at a French chateau? With a ten-city tour. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Kadushin is perfect and perfectly adorable in the role of Lizzie, the bubbly, idealistic "History of Fashion" major whose na?vet?, cluelessness and inability to keep her mouth shut land her in one amusing scrape after another. The book's narrative style is ideal for audio: Lizzie tells her story in an eager, breathless first-person monologue that sounds completely natural and believable when read aloud ("I can not believe I just did that. Why did I open my big mouth, especially about something that has absolutely nothing to do with me? I am such an idiot!") Kadushin plays the role to the hilt and makes the audiobook feel like sitting down with a close friend who can't wait to share her latest gossip and secrets. Kadushin is also hilarious as Andy, Lizzie's one-time boyfriend, whose charming British accent can't hide that he's a deadbeat loser, and Dominique, the snooty French-Canadian girlfriend of Luke, the sweet guy whom Lizzie ends up falling for. This entertaining, breezy and lightweight chick lit romance is perfect for beach listening. Simultaneous release with the Morrow hardcover (Reviews, June 5). (July) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
