Product description

Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She's always been a v. nervous flyer. 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 innermost secrets. How she scans the backs of intellectual books and pretends she's read them. How she does her hair up like Princess Leia in her bedroom. 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 the coffee at work is horrible. 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?

This book reminds me a fairy tale, when a poor/not good-looking girl meets handsome and rich boy and everything ends happily.
The beginning of the book is very interesting but later the interest turns down. Some moments seems to be unbelievable...for example, the main reason why that handsome+rich boy didn't tell the truth about himself.
As for me this is the book to read and to forget.

From the author of shopaholic series comes another lighthearted, hilarious chick-lit book. I can't stop laughing when I started reading this book. A story of a young woman with a huge kind heart, an amazing spirit with secrets to keep...until she spills them all to a handsome stranger next to her on a plane during a turbulent plane ride. Thinking that she won't be seeing him afterwards if they do ever survived this flight. But by monday morning, she's suddenly come in face-to-face with the stranger from the plane. Things just couldn't possibly get worse! A highly recommended book to read, familiar characters to relate to.

"I was looking forward to reading this book, as I loved Sophie's previous Shopaholic series and Undomestic Goddess. So I knew what to expect from this book. Overall I enjoyed this book and it did make me laugh. But, The Undomestic Goddess still remains my favourite book of Sophie's individual novels. Whereas, Shopaholic and a Sister is my favourite from the Shopaholic series.
There is one thing about Sophie's books that I have noticed, imo I sort of feel like in all the books; I'm reading about the same character. They all have great jobs, they're all a bit dizzy and they all find love. This isn't such a bad thing as with Sophie Kinsella you know what to expect, but I would like to see her do something a little bit different next time.
I know she has written other books under the name of Madeleine Wickham, so may be these are a bit different to the books I have read under the name 'Sophie Kinsella'. But atm I'm not in a rush to read them.
My Verdict: Predictable Sophie Kinsella book, but still loads of fun to read! "

Review quote

"A light, frothy and thoroughly entertaining novel" Daily Mail "Brilliant reading" Heat "An insightful and funny take on the pitfalls and pleasures of telling the truth" Cosmopolitan "Fluently written, extremely entertaining, Can You Keep A Secret? is an impressive follow up to Kinsella's previous bestsellers" Marie Claire "An insanely chatty, fast-paced romantic comedy" Closer
