First of all, I absolutely adore the cover of this book. The silhouettes against the lovely deep blue sky completely drew me in immediately. It reminds me of warm summer evenings where you go for a romantic walk along the beach, which I think is so beautiful.

‘Can You Keep A Secret?’ by Sophie Kinsella: Book Review

This was the first book of Sophie Kinsella’s that I had read, and I was not in any way disappointed. I absolutely loved this book, and after reading a couple of pages I was completely hooked.

What would you do if you accidently spilt all of your juicy (or, not so juicy) secrets to a random man on a plane, and then it turns out that he was actually your boss?

The book follows the story of Emma Corrigan Рa typical young woman. Although Emma is desperate to get a promotion and for her parents to be proud of her, she is pretty satisfied with her life. She has a gorgeous long term boyfriend, Connor, and she lives with her best friend of twenty one years, Lissy. However, on the return home from a business trip, Emma experiences an extremely turbulent plane journey which was about to change her life. can_you_keep_a_secret_UK

To keep her mind off the journey, Emma can’t help but spill all of her secrets to the handsome, American business man sitting next to her. Every little secret she had – from lying about her grades on her CV, to finding G-strings unbelievably uncomfortable – rushed out of her mouth and into the ears of this stranger.

Once the plane had landed, Emma was feeling rather embarrassed, but what did that matter? It’s not like she would ever see this man again…

Well, at least that is¬†what she thought. Emma was absolutely mortified when¬†this handsome man, Jack,¬†turns up at her¬†work place. It turns out, he wasn’t a stranger at all… he was the big boss of the company she worked at, who had come to pay a visit at her branch!¬†Throughout the story, Emma tries really¬†hard not to let this bother her, and to act as though¬†the plane incident¬†never happened, but Jack wasn’t having any of that.
