Disaster-prone Lizzie Nichols manages to put her foot in it again, in Queen of Babble in the Big City, the second in Meg Cabot's witty and romantic series.
When "Summer Fling" Luke uses the L word (Living Together), Lizzie is only too happy to move in with the love of her life in his mother's Fifth Avenue pied-à-terre.
But Lizzie's not as lucky in her employment search. As her best friend, Shari, finds the perfect job, Lizzie struggles through one humiliating interview after another, until Shari's boyfriend Chaz lands Lizzie a receptionist's position at his father's posh law firm; the non-paying gig at a local wedding-gown shop Lizzie manages to find all on her own.
But Lizzie's notoriously big mouth gets her into trouble almost at once-first at the law firm, where she becomes too chummy with a society bride, and then with Luke when she brings up the M word (Marriage).
Soon Lizzie finds herself jobless and homeless all over again. Can Lizzie save herself and find career security (not to mention a committed relationship) at last?
