“I’ve always had this deep-down conviction that I’m not like everybody else, and there’s an amazingly exciting new life waiting for me just around the corner.”
― Sophie Kinsella,
Emma is a young, beautiful woman with a huge heart, irresistible spirit and way too many secrets. At least, they were secrets until she spills them all to a stranger…who turns out to be her boss!
Working as a marketing assistant at Panther Cola, she is hoping to climb the corporate ladder, expecting to be promoted soon. Yet, disappointments are a plenty, when the first marketing deal with a client goes all wrong. On a turbulent flight from Glasgow to London, Emma ends up spilling the beans about her life- her discomfort with G-strings, her dislike for the office coffee, her feelings towards her best friend, relationship with her boyfriend and many other intimate details, to a complete stranger seated by her side. When the flight lands, Emma hopes she would never ever meet the stranger again, only to discover that the young man on the plane is none other than Jack Harper, the CEO of her company.
The book is fun and playful with shades of fear, rejection and love experienced by Emma. I loved the irresistible spirit of Emma Corrigan. Sophie portrays issues of an everyday girl- times spent with roommates, squabbles with family members, and office gossips.
When a book puts together life’s simplest pleasures, you can be sure that it’s going to be one great read. Can You Keep a Secret is Sophie Kinsella’s finest. This chick lit author is most popularly known for her Shopaholic series.
