Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella


About the book:

Nervous flyer Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She really thinks that this could be her last moment. So, naturally enough, she starts telling the man sitting next to her – quite a dishy American, but she’s too frightened to notice – all her secrets. How she scans the backs of intellectual books and pretends she’s read them. How she’s not sure if she has a G-spot, and whether her boyfriend could find it anyway. How she feels like a fraud at work – everyone uses the word ‘operational’ all the time but she hasn’t a clue what it means. How she once threw a troublesome client file in the bin. If ever there was a bare soul, it’s hers.

She survives the flight, of course, and the next morning the famous founding boss of the whole mega corporation she works for is coming for a look at the UK branch. As he walks around, Emma looks up and realises…

It’s the man from the plane.

What will he do with her secrets? He knows them all – but she doesn’t know a single one of his. Or… does she?

My review:

This one has been on my TBR (to be read) list for quite some time and I have finally got round to it, yay!!

Sophie Kinsella is a very well known and popular author. All of the books I have read of hers make me laugh out loud while reading them. This one was no exception it is hilarious!! My husband kept giving me funny looks when I would just randomly start laughing while my nose was buried within my book.

This is without a doubt a book you should be reading while sunning yourself somewhere warm (while I look out my window at the snow that is half melted on my front garden!! Dreaming of sunshine) This is such an easy ready but brilliant at the same time. The main character Emma is just comical while be completely relatable. She is just a normal girl, because she is so relatable she makes a great character. Im pretty sure throughout the book there are things she does or thinks that anyone of you could have done at some point in your lives. Now Jack is the male character within this book, he is just as lovable but hardly relatable and he is absolutely loaded and I personally don’t know anyone who is that loaded. He really is a lovely character though.

All in all this really is a great book and I throughly enjoyed reading it. Although it is now one of her older books I will most definitely be recommending it. Especially if you are going away somewhere exotic.
