It is always a good sign when the book you're reading makes you laugh out loud. "Can You Keep a Secret" definitely had me laughing out loud in more than a few places. However, it also had me groaning about the stupidity of the main character a few times as well.

Overall, I liked the story. There's something funny about spilling your guts and all the little life secrets you have to a total stranger on the plane. Until that is, that stranger happens to be the CEO of your company. Such is the story of Emma and Jack.

While the book is more than a little predictable, I still had fun. It made me laugh more times that any other book I've read this year (and that's something).

If you need a light-hearted book that you can read to brighten your day (or a plane ride of your own), then definitely check out "Can You Keep a Secret". If nothing else, it will help you keep your secrets in tact.

I loved this book because all of the characters in it seemed so human, and they were very easy to relate to. This book definitely has some laugh-out-loud moments, along with some, "Hey, I know how she feels" moments. Definitely a good read.

I liked this book better than her shopaholic books. This character was more endearing and likeable. She basically thinks she is going to die in a plane crash and starts spilling her guts to a stranger. The stranger turns out to be her new boss, and really hot. He now knows all her secrets and really likes her because of it. She knows a secret of his too. Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in bed or love , boy or girl betray or misunderstand the other. Then boy and girl work it all out.

Cute, very cute. This was my first Kinsella book and it was interesting and very funny at times. Very real reactions from the main characters at times so its easy to identify with them. You'll enjoy it.

Written with dry wit and humor, Can You Keep A Secret? is engaging in a light, satisfactory manner. Other reviewers add that the belief in reality must be suspended while undertaking the reading of this particular novel. Once that has happened, however, it is fanciful to suppose that a story like this could happen to someone, and the author spins that fancy into a lovely, sweet romance. Kinsella creates a dashing, charming and highly successful CEO that strives to capture our hearts as well as he has captured Emma's.

The novel is not without its faults - the "necessary drama" that must always unravel itself in such a novel of course occurs, taking its shape in the spilling of secrets and sudden mistrust. For some, it may create a bit of an unsatisfactory ending (though the story, of course, ends happily). Yet the ride (both literal and figurative) is special and brings to the uneventful Emma's life much excitement.

Recommended.

I'm usually involved with reading mysteries, but diverged to this book via forum reviews. It was okay; light reading. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend spending your time reading it, with the kazillion other books to choose from in the world!

I had never heard of Sophie Kinsella before a friend gave me this book - it was awesome! If you need a good dose of "can you even believe that happened?" humor this is the book you're looking for! I've now read all Sophie's books and wish that Emma would come back to life in a series. Please......, Sophie???

I was actually quite surprised to learn that there was a Sophie Kinsella book that I had not read. Her last book Remember Me? was one of my favorites from last year. This book is older, probably released around the same time as the first Shopaholic books. This novel is a standalone and follows in true Kinsella form for being light, fun, and totally entertaining. No deep plot, no deep philosophical discussion, or not even too many big words. Lets just be honest, there isnt going to be a plague on anyones house in this story.

Basic plot premise is life seen through the eyes of endearingly optimistic Emma Corrigan a twenty something junior marketing executive at Panther Corporation. In an attempt to boost her career she volunteers to substitute for her boss at a meeting with clients in Glasgow. After she is unsuccessful at winning them over, she flies back praying that she will have a job when she returns. Already a highly nervous flier, Emma completely loses it when her flight from Glasgow to London encounters severe turbulence. Thinking the end is near, she spills every secret she has ever had to the stranger next to her. How she lost her virginity, what she really thinks of her boyfriend, the petty (but hilarious) stunts she pulls on co-workers, the way she killed her parents' goldfish while they were on vacation and replaced it without their knowledge, her deepest thoughts on g-strings, her contemptible sow of a cousin Kerry, Charles Dickens, and more. When the plane miraculously lands, Emma is thankful she will never again see this man who knows every little secret of her life. Or so she thinks. (Insert evil laugh) Emma returns to her job to find that the stranger she blabbed to is none other than the CEO of Panther Corporation, Jack Harper who just so happens to be visiting from America. (Come and knock on our door)

Lets just say hilarity ensues and there is of course, a happy ending. Emma is very reminiscent of Kinsella's other heroine, the shopaholic Becky Bloomwood. A definite honorable mention goes to my favorite character in the story, Emmas roommate Jemima. Jemima is kind of like the UK version of the ghetto fabulous girl from the hood who will fake a pregnancy or chuck a brick through a guy's car window for cheating on her. Though instead of velour tracksuits and huge hoop earrings, Jemima wears Prada mules, pearls, and cashmere cardigans. Every scene with Jemima had me in internal giggles at her sage thoughts on men, jewels, and her tried and true methods of "getting the ring on your finger".

Can You Keep a Secret? definitely keeps the tried and true theme of good girl who makes horrible decisions but learns a big lesson and still ends up with the guy, but for chick-lit that is pretty much a hat trick. I definitely recommend for filler between heavier subject matter due to it's fast paced timing and rapid fire resolutions. All in all not a bad little story and yes, I was entertained.

This book started with a great premise - what if you tell a stranger all your secrets, only to discover he's the owner of the company you work for - and just kept getting better as the situation evolved. The charachters are great, heart-warming and felt like real people. For people who thought the Shopaholic stories were "meh" because of the obsession on shopping, don't overlook this book by Sophie Kinsella.

This book was excellent! It was the first book I've ever read that actually made me laugh out loud! It made me feel so much for the main character-Emma-that I couldn't put it down!

This books has some great laugh out loud moments and is a fun read. I like the characters personality and I enjoyed this book much more than Remember Me?. The only thing I had to adjust to were a few terms as the book is written in Europe english vs. US english. (Like asking a person "to get on" isn't a term I'd heard before...)

This book has its moments and I finished it one day however it falls flat for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Shopaholic series, but I can't say the same for this book. The heroine is quite naive and sweet, almost annoyingly so, but she's not as endearingly spunky as Becky Bloomwood. Having read several books from the same author, I can see that she has certain stock characters she uses over again such as the smarter roommate who is also the best friend, the parents who fret over their daughter's career/love life, the bitchy acquaintances, etc. In fact, the plot of this book is similar to the Shopholic books and therefore somewhat predictable

(SPOILER) The two main characters, Emma and Jack, are not well developed at all. They have only two dates, both of which don't go well, and they supposedly fall head over heels in love with each other! It was too much to accept. It wasn't believable especially given that Jack barely reveals anything about himself to Emma. He has a secret and when he finally reveals his secret it's really nothing much at all - quite underwhelming in fact, hardly anything that would necessitate all the secret phone calls and other oddities in his behavior.

Loved this book! Read in one afternoon the day it arrived. Laughed out loud several times, cried too. Really could identify with the 'open mouth, insert foot' experiences of the main character Emma.

Surprisingly, I could not put this book down. It was a fun and hilarious read. Although, I did not agree with all of the main characters actions and values; the way she was portrayed made it feel like I had known her a long time and there were moments when I felt quite empathetic toward this fictional character. I appreciated how real the character seemed. It was a great book, that I recommend!

This was a great quick read! I laughed out loud for pages at a time (and that's not something I usually do), and I had trouble putting it down to go to sleep. At times the plot seemed predictable, yet it kept me on my toes. There were a few points that seemed familiar, somehow, as though I had read it before (though I'm quite sure I haven't), which may contribute to part of the appeal in Kinsella's writing style. With such well-developed characters, and follow-up on details in the story line, her characters and stories are very real and easy to connect with. I will read more by this author.

I liked this book, and I may read it again some day. The main character, Emma, is very likable but I didn't care for how the romance between Jack and Emma played out. I think it could have been written much better. It was just a little bit too predictable if you ask me. The first few pages are funny when she spills all of her secrets to a mysterious stranger on the plane, but after that the book lets you down, and it's not nearly as funny as you could have hoped. Still, I consider this much better than the Shopaholic series.

It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book. It is by an English author and set in London so some of the writing (ie English style) was difficult at first.

This novel is full of the tiny, little secrets of life that when brought into the light can add the simplest and freshest sort of humor. You can't help but chuckle at the very private thoughts that come bubbling from Emma and how her story unravels with irony, embarrassment, humor, hope, despair, love, humiliation, strength, wittiness, and finally, forgiveness and acceptance. You will definitely enjoy, and will probably even find parts that you can relate to yourself. I encourage you to read on and have yet to be disappointed by Kinsella.

I would not let a young person listen or read this book just because of the F word used several times. I was a little shocked. My mom suggested this to me, and even though I am 25 years old, I was suprised she didn't mention the F word being used. I think it was used too loosely.
Anyway, the story itself was great. I was very suprised at one part of the story and I yelled out loud at parts, laughed at others, sighed.....I felt like I was in the world of the character. Like she was telling me her story.
This book shows you that it is OK to be you. It doesn't matter what other people think, and it is OK to tell the truth. Also, stand up for yourself!

Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:
Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
Sammy the goldfish in my parents kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.
Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks.
Ive always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.
From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.
Secrets she wouldnt share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me.
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, Emmas office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the companys 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 couldnt possibly get worseUntil they do.

Sophie Kinsella is an amazing story-writer. She has an extraordinary ability to make the reader identify with Emma, our beloved main character. The secrets Emma reveals reflect in many ways the true personal thoughts of many women and you find yourself routing for her the entire way through. The descriptions of emotions and actions reflect reality while adding the wow factor one looks for in a true British humor novel. A metropolitan woman's love story with a twist, a definite must read.

I must admit that I wasn't a great fan of the Shopoholic series -- the first was cute, but the others became a bit irritating. So, I was a bit heistant about trying another Kinsella. But, that's the beauty of Paperback Swap! I can try something without putting out a big investment -- and this little investment certainly paid off. I listened to this audio CD on the way back and forth from work last week, and I have to admit that I coudn't wait to get in the car to hear more! The story is light and somewhat predictable -- though not completely. What Kinsella does so much better in this story is give us a heroine who is really, really likeable. She has her flaws, but basically she's a good, honorable person. Emily Gray, as narrator, also does a tremendous job of bringing each character to life.

Now, if Kinsella would write more stories about this heroine, I'd be more than happy to read them! I highly recommend this light read (or listen). I think you'll enjoy it.

I absolutely loved this book! It so reminded me of Bridget Jones Diary. Emma is terrified of flying and when the plane hits massive turbulence, she thinks she's going to die and starts blabbing all her secrets to the guy in the seat next to her. And I do mean everything. Turns out he's Jack Harper, the guy who owns the company she works for. For everyone he meets, a little bell goes off, and he uses what Emma told him in a clever way which is just hysterical. Poor Emma she just can't win, she is beyond mortified until the unthinkable happens, Jack asks her out.

This is just a rollicking good time, that truly had me laughing out loud. I'm sure the people driving in the cars next to me, must have thought I was nuts. I honestly don't think I would have gotten the same thing out of this book if I read it myself. The accents and the way the story was read were just priceless.

I've never picked up Sophie Kinsella's books before because chick lit really isn't my thing. I'm so not into the whole shopping thing so the shopaholic series is probably out, but her other books have just been added to my TBR. I can't wait to see if I can find them on audiobook.

I felt like Emma was similar to the main character of the Shopaholic series, Becky. The author writes lots of humorous inner dialogue for her main characters which makes them very relatable.

I have read a few other books by Sophie Kinsella and I must say this was not my favorite- there is a fine line between wit and slapstick humor and this book crosses the line on a few occasions. The heroine is difficult to root for; it's hard to understand why a hugely successful, handsome businessman would go for such a nervous Nellie with so many hangups. Also I found some of the scenes were very contrived in an attempt to make the book funny- you find yourself saying, "oh come on, that would never happen." I liked "The Undomestic Goddess" a lot more, it's got a much gentler, more realistic tone to it- and it's mildly witty without going overboard on the stupid situations. I can only give this book 2-3 stars- others are much better.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets:

Secrets from her mother:
I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur.
Sammy the goldfish in my parents' kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt.

Secrets from her boyfriend:
I weigh one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not one eighteen, like Connor thinks.
I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.

From her colleagues:
When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.

Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world:
My G-string is hurting me.
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--Until they do.

ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS! We all have our secrets. What would we do if everyone found them out???

It would be hard to imagine anyone other than Gray giving voice to Emma Corrigan, the heroine of Kinsella's hilarious new confection (after Shopaholic Ties the Knot). With her flirty British accent, Gray perfectly delivers the hysterical monologues that Emma, a marketing assistant, directs towards the handsome man sitting next to her on a turbulent flight between Glasgow and London. Emma spills intimate details about her G-string, G-spot, the fact that she's never been in love and much more. But to Emma's chagrin, the handsome man on the plane turns out to be Jack Harper, CEO of her company. Emma hopes Jack will forget all about her, but he seems bent on getting to know her, first forcing her to admit she deserves better than her boring boyfriend Conor, then convincing her that he is a better choice. Although he never seems to share his own secrets, Emma can't help falling in love with Jack and his glamorous lifestyle. But then the unthinkable happensJack reveals Emma's secrets on national television in front of her family, friends and co-workers. What happens next? That's a secret. What's not is that this fast-paced, fluffy audiobook goes down as easily as cotton candy and is twice as sweet.

The author of the Shopaholic trilogy offers up a delightful new novel, filled with her trademark wit and humor. When her plane en route from Glasgow to London experiences horrible turbulence, Emma Corrigan is convinced she is going to die. She babbles all of her most intimate thoughts and secrets to the handsome American man sitting next to her. But the plane lands safely, and Emma bids him an awkward good-bye. When she enters the office on Monday and learns the CEO of the company, Jack Harper, is in for a visit, Emma is horrified to learn Jack is actually the man in whom she confided on the flight. He knows everything, including that she hates her job and that she is not quite sure she loves her boyfriend. But Jack does not fire her on the spot; instead, he quietly replaces the office coffeemaker she hates and gives her advice about her personal life, which she finds infuriating. So why can't she stop thinking about him?

I'm addicted to the "Shopaholic" books, and while this one isn't quite up to that standard, I have to say a really, really liked it. It's a quick read and is very enjoyable. If you like other Sophie Kinsella books, you'll enjoy this one too.

This book is by the same author that wrote the wonderful "Shopaholic" series. Here she writes about a different character, Emma Corrigan.

What a fun chick lit book. And it is not completely the predictable formula. This main character sort of cares about her job, doesn't overspend, is trying to make good on her debts. Sophie Kinsella just gets better with each book.

This book is entertaining from page 1. Fast read. You think you know what will happen, but it changes up on you. Of course, it's for the best. I really liked the main character. She reminds me of Becky from this author's Shopaholic series, but she's smarter and not as annoying. I'd like to see this turned into a movie.

This book is a suitable companion to another of Sophie Kinsella's book The Undomesticated Goddess.

The story is bright and cheerful. The reader makes it even more enjoyable.

For those who enjoy a bit of bawdy English humor, it is a pleasant experience.

Five stars.

I was really disappointed with this book after all the rave reviews it has received. Not really that funny, the romance was weak, and the main character was annoying. There are much better books out there, this is a waste of time and paper.

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... Until Emma comes face-to-face with Jack Harper, the company's elusive CEO, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her...

Emma is like every girl in the world. She has a few little secrets.

Secrets from her mother:
1. I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom to Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching 'Ben Hur'.

... From her boyfriend:
2. I'm a size twelve. Not a size eight, like Connor thinks.
3. I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken.

... From her colleagues:
4. When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day)
5. It was me who jamed the copier that time. In fact, all the times.

... Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world:
6. My G string is hurting me.
7. I faked my Maths GCSE grade on my CV.
8. I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is...

... until she spills them all to a stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger...
