Secrets. Everybody has secrets but what if the most embarrassing parts of your life are exposed to your friends, co-workers, and family.

I loved this concept and the progression of this book. Emma is a strong woman who goes on an amazing journey to figure out who she really is. Emma’s journey was amazing to read, as was her blossoming relationship with Jack.

I wish their story kept on going.


Can You Keep a Secret is the newest book by Sophie Kinsella, who wrote that quirky, funny Shopaholic trilogy. Emma, a modern girl with modern problems and a fear of flying, confesses all her secrets to the man beside her on a bumpy flight back from a disastrous business meeting. Not a big deal, right? At least not until she sees him at work ... and realizes he owns the company!

Now, every time Emma turns around, Jack Harper is there, grinning at her in a way that says he knows more than he's saying. Which he does. Emma's so sure she has ruined her opportunity for a promotion, but Jack seems as eager to keep their meeting a secret as Emma is. Yet, he won't leave her alone.

He talks to the family that tends to neglect her, he asks her to clandestine meetings. He's driving her crazy--in more ways than one. When Emma dumps her boyfriend Connor, who she hadn't realized until she met Jack that she could never love, she and Jack embark on a somewhat strange relationship. Emma thinks Jack's perfect, until he publicly humiliates her with all those things she told him on the plane! "
