Queen of Babble - Big Mouth, Big Heart, Big Problems
Lizzie Nichols is blowing her college graduation money on a trip to visit her long-distance boyfriend in London. After discovering that her beloved Andy wasn't completely faithful to her during their separation, she finds herself out on the streets with no money and a non-changeable airline ticket home for exactly a month away. Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend, Shari, comes to the rescue ...

Queen of Babble - In The Big City
Lizzie Nichols is back, pounding the New York City pavement looking for a job, place to live, and her proper place in the universe. 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-a-terre. But Lizzie's not as lucky in her employment search and her notoriously big mouth gets her into trouble almost at once... 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?

Queen of Babble - Gets Hitched
Lizzie Nichols has hit the big time in the Big Apple. After Vogue's editor called her restoration of an ancestral wedding gown "cunning,"and that comment appeared on Page Six the phone at Chez Henri has been ringing incessantly. Everybody who is anybody wants Lizzie to do her wedding gown. 

Regrettably in the midst of this Henri, yes, the Henri immediately following Chez has a heart attack and it's left to Lizzie to take charge. Taking charge isn't such an easy task when one of your clients is Ava Geck, wealthy daughter of the owner of the Walmart-like stores whose motto is "Get It At Geck's." Ava is one of the funniest characters to ever grace pages. "Grace" is not the word to describe Ava - she's a gum chewing gal who is often seen "on the red carpels of movies in which she is not starring, since she has no actual talent." While her dad is worth billions Ava has a personal worth of more than $300,000,000, and she's engaged to marry a Greek prince. She's currently in NY to do a guest shot on Celebrity Pit Fight, and she wants Lizzie to do her gown. Being involved with Ava sets the stage for a series of laugh out loud scenes. 

While Lizzie is a whiz in business her romantic life is currently on a fast road to chaos. She is also engaged to a prince, Jean-Luc, aka Luke. It would seem to be what a girl from Ann Arbor Michigan has always dreamed of - her own Prince Charming ready to take her away to France where she will live at Chateau Mirac. Problem is Luke's best friend is Chaz with whom Lizzie has recently shared a bed (only that), and he's the one who makes her heart do flip-flops. Nonetheless, she knows it is Luke she loves or does she?
