Synopsis

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE • From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella, a novel with the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism as her beloved Shopaholic series.
 
Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:
 
Secrets from her boyfriend: I’ve always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
 
Secrets from her mother: I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
 
Secrets she wouldn’t share with anyone in the world: I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is.
 
Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger. . . .
 
But come Monday morning, Emma’s office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company’s elusive CEO.  Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn’t possibly get worse. Or could they?
 
Praise for Can You Keep a Secret?
 
“Venturing beyond Saks and Barney’s, the bestselling author of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot entertains readers with backstabbing office shenanigans, competition, scandal, love and sex. . . . Kinsella’s down-to-earth protagonist is sure to have readers sympathizing and doubled over in laughter.”—Publishers Weekly 

“If laughing out loud in public places is your bag, be sure to pick up [Can You Keep a Secret?]. Heroine Emma Corrigan is going to be your new best friend.”—Boston Herald
 
“Kinsella’s timing is so perfect, her instincts so spot-on, that it’s easy to . . . devour the book like the guilty pleasure it is.”—Miami Herald

“Chick lit at its lightest and breeziest . . . filled with fabulous clothes, stalwart friends, and snotty enemies waiting to be taken down a peg.”—Orlando Sentinel 

“[Kinsella’s] dialogue is sharp, even her minor characters are well drawn, and her parody of the marketing world is very funny.”—Washington Post Book World 

“[A] comedic frenzy of ill-fated events . . . punchy . . . fast-moving.”—Rocky Mountain News

good plot twists on this one... and not your typical thing that you think's going to happen, which is nice. Good romance story though.

I thought this book was very funny and an excellent romance.

AudiobooksNow review by Allison on 2008-01-13 13:45:36

This is one of my favorite books!!! It is so funny and easy to read. I laughed out loud, which is why I'm sure my neighbors think I'm crazy, as I was all alone at the time.

AudiobooksNow review by merri on 2008-01-22 00:42:13

i like to read chick lit sometimes, and sophie the author of the shopaholic series is one of the best for this genre. an interesting, funny, fast read about a woman who talked too much and could have gotten herself into trouble, but instead gets herself into real life.

AudiobooksNow review by TPrince on 2008-01-29 14:52:06

I like Sophie Kinsella and her books always seem to keep me laughing. There are times when the characters can get a big grating, but then you tend to realize that as in real life, not everyone is perfect and it puts you back on track. This is a great read for anyone who needs to laugh out loud and escape for just a few hours.
