Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
The following is a review from a guest reviewer:
Title: Can you keep a secret?
Author: Sophie Kinsella
Genre: Pure chick-lit
Rating: Love – would be “worship” if not for the following:
Alerts/Warnings: Lots of language and sexual references and one graphic sex scene
Premise: "Emma Corrigan's young, sweet, and has a long list of secrets--the kind of innocent secrets everyone has--one of which is that she is afraid of flying. Coming back from a thoroughly ruinous sales trip to Glasgow, she is seized by mortal terror when the plane she is on encounters some air turbulence, and ends up spilling her guts to the handsome American sitting next to her. He gets to hear that she sleeps beneath a Barbie bedspread, that she fibbed to get her current job, and that she has never been able to satisfactorily find her G-spot. Then, the plane lands... and rather than disappearing into anonymity, the American turns up in her life again. He's the CEO of her company, and remembers her quite well." (King County Library System)
Opinions: This is my favorite fluff book of all time. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud as much as I did while reading this book. Emma is a very charming main character and I loved Jack’s dry sense of humor. I’m just not a fan of the language and sex (that is why I prefer to read young adult books).
