Queen of Babble in the Big City - Meg Cabot (2007)

This is the sequel to Queen of Babble by Meg Cabot, and it was part of the omnibus that contained the first novel that I blogged about earlier today. Once again it is similar to all of Meg Cabot's other books that I've read, however it is still pretty good.

I enjoyed this book just as much as the previous one, however I didn't find the plot as interesting as the original. It is still written in Meg Cabot's humourous fashion I just found that the plot wasn't as good as the first novel, however if you enjoyed the first book you will enjoy the sequel.

Lizzie Nichols has moved to New York with her new boyfriend Luke and is now living with him. She gets a job after weeks of looking, at a wedding repair shop however she ends up working for free by accident. Because she doesn't have any money Chaz offers to put a word in for her at his father's law firm as a receptionist in the morning. During the rest of the novel Lizzie fantasises about marriage to Luke and convinces herself that he bought her a ring, obviously that fantasy goes horribly wrong and ends in a break-up. There are many other twists and turns in the novel but it ends up with a marriage proposal from Luke to Lizzie which goes unanswered as it is the last line in the novel. If you enjoyed the first novel you will ceratinly enjoy this one and I'm sure you'll be reading about the third book from me sooner or later.
