Book Details Summary

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

    Don't read this book! I have read other books from this author and enjoyed them. But not this one!! I want my $ back! The main character Emma is a nit twit. She expected so many great things to be given to her without putting forth the work! Her family is awful to her other than her grandpa. Her boyfriend is like a Step-ford boyfriend... but she doesn't help the matter because she never speaks up or disagrees with him on anything! I kept reading for awhile, hoping it would get better. But it just didn't. Don't read this book. Read "Remember Me" instead.
  • Love it!

    It was such a great read! At one point I'm laughing the next I'm wanting to cry. It was the perfect blend for a romance as soon as I started it I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend to anyone who loves a great read!
  • Shallow but entertaining

    I liked the first part, but for my taste it was shallow and lacked depth. I wanted a nice read but with some thought not that shallow. I respect all other reviews, I'm just talking about my taste.

    Funny and entertaining until the last quarter. The last few chapters were very messy and almost painful to finish.
  • Fantastic read
