Big mouth. Big heart.Big wedding. Big problems.
It's the wedding of the century.
Things are looking up at last for Lizzie Nichols. She has a career she loves in the field of her choice (wedding gown restoration), and the love of her life, Jean-Luc, has finally proposed. Life's become a dizzying whirl of wedding gown fittings--not necessarily her own--as Lizzie prepares for her dream wedding at her fiance's chateau in the south of France.
But the dream soon becomes a nightmare as the best man--whom Lizzie might once have accidentally slept with . . . no, really, just slept--announces his total lack of support for the couple, a sentiment the maid of honor happens to second; Lizzie's Midwestern family can't understand why she doesn't want to have her wedding in the family backyard; her future, oh-so-proper French in-laws seem to be slowly trying to lure the groom away from medical school and back into investment banking; and Lizzie finds herself wondering if her Prince Charming really is as charming as she once believed.
Is Lizzie really ready to embrace her new role as wife and mistress of Chateau Mirac? Or is she destined to fall into another man's arms . . . and into the trap of becoming a Bad Girl instead?
Definitely the best of the 3. Lizzie sure grew in this one, still made some really silly choices making poor Chaz wait so long. Luke really showed his true colors in this one, and let me tell you they weren't pretty! he was such an Ahole ugh. He was alright in the other 2 books but he just took the cake in this one.
So glad Lizzie wasn't such a pathological liar in this one either. That really bothered me in the other 2 books. There was absolutely no need to lie, and she still does it anyway, and yet she has a tendency to babble a lot, which most would construe as saying her feelings with no buffer, but not in this case apparently, cause lies just pour out of her as easily as honesty. She reminds me of Mean Girls with the word vomit all the time.
I really liked the ending, I thought it was very fitting for them and Chaz was just so cute at the end! xD he was the one babbling for a change.
If you started this series and didn't like as much as me, I recommend to keep on going cause it does get better and it's a nice closure to the trilogy.
