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?

0.0 Can You Keep A Secret? (DNF/Not Rated)
I was able to get through enough of this book to see that this could have been a fun read, but I was so annoyed by the first-person-present-tense that I couldn’t force myself to continue beyond the first few chapters. DNF at 40 pages. I was reading this for the 2017 Romance Bingo, for the New Adul...

0.0 Can You Keep a Secret?
Ugh, how can so many people adore this book? I made it to 11% before I remembered life is way too short to read about such a depressing character. Emma is a self-deluding door mat with an honesty problem. Her panicked confession of secrets on a bumpy flight was amusing, but that's really all I could...

2.5 Review: Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
I was looking for a lighthearted fluffy kind of romance and in certain respects, this book delivered. Emma Corrigan is a heroine who makes endless blunders and has socially awkward moments that made me smile and laugh. She is basically an airhead times one hundred, which I initially didn't mind bu...

4.5 Can You Keep a Secret?/Sophie Kinsella
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.

2.0 Can You Keep a Secret?
Initial thoughts: Maybe I should've read Can You Keep A Secret? before I've Got Your Number because the latter was published much later in Sophie Kinsella's writing career and was way funnier. A lot of the times I wanted to smack the protagonist's head because she was so incredibly naive and shallow...
