Can You Keep a Secret? Sophie Kinsella read online review & book description:

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?

“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

“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

  • Promising but not sustainable plot.

    The story caught my attention at the very beginning with a powerful attention catcher: meeting a perfect stranger on a plane. Unfortunately, Emma’s internal dialogue is too dense and interests starts fading. At times boring. Spoiler alert: I thought the crisis/reconciliation she had with her family could have described more personal growth on her. Finally, the friend (or I should say psycho enemy) Jemima is worst than the syrup and handled with not too much balance to what she does and how Emma reacts. Too much weight on how psycho she is with a too much simple outcome. Entertaining, though. I like how she writes.

    It was quite slow and dry initially and then the plot finally deepened and it became interesting.
  • Fun read

    This book might be the most entertaining thing I’ve read in a long time. Just laugh out loud, lay in bed giggling FUNNY. Emma is the best, Jack is the best. Sophie is the best. Highly recommend,

    Fun to read, ending was just ok. Characters were drawn out and I felt myself sometimes just flipping through the pages to get over them faster. Not worth the price in my opinion but still real fun hence the 3 stars.
  • This book was completely infuriatig

    I won’t give this book 1 star, because the writing wasn’t terrible so I’ll give the author credit on that. However, everything about the plot and the characters made this book the worst book I’ve ever read, in that it absolutely infuriated me from start to finish. From the beginning, the main character is constantly being bullied and belittled by every other character. Just chapters and chapters of people being completely terrible human beings and then she gets some minor satisfaction and the reader is expected to be happy with that? Reading this book was an absolute pain in the neck and I would never recommend it to anyone who is hoping to have a good day, because this will surely ruin it.
  • Cute but...

    Unrealistic. The development between the two characters was cute at first then went straight to ridiculous. There was nothing there. I wish I could get my money back.
  • Cute and sweet

    Cute book but not cheesy romantic. One of the better romantic comedies to keep you reading. Reminded me of Bridget Jones’ Diary.

    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!
