display_descriptionSOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
  • From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella, a novel with the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism as her beloved Shopaholic series.

    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. . . .

    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. Or could they?

    Praise for Can You Keep a Secret?

    "Venturing beyond Saks and Barney's, the bestselling author of Confessions of a Shopaholic and Shopaholic Ties the Knot entertains readers with backstabbing office shenanigans, competition, scandal, love and sex. . . . Kinsella's down-to-earth protagonist is sure to have readers sympathizing and doubled over in laughter."Publishers Weekly
    "If laughing out loud in public places is your bag, be sure to pick up [Can You Keep a Secret?]. Heroine Emma Corrigan is going to be your new best friend."Boston Herald

    "Kinsella's timing is so perfect, her instincts so spot-on, that it's easy to . . . devour the book like the guilty pleasure it is."Miami Herald
    "Chick lit at its lightest and breeziest . . . filled with fabulous clothes, stalwart friends, and snotty enemies waiting to be taken down a peg."Orlando Sentinel
    "[Kinsella's] dialogue is sharp, even her minor characters are well drawn, and her parody of the marketing world is very funny."Washington Post Book World
    "[A] comedic frenzy of ill-fated events . . . punchy . . . fast-moving."Rocky Mountain News
    BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's Wedding Night.
