“A Brit lit. romance that is a little silly but I like it non the less. It's a typical Kinsella romance that has a little bit of comedy to it.
The main character, Emma, tells little secrets to a stranger. Secrets like her not liking a sports drink the company that she works at sells. But others come from letting people taking advantage of her. She doesn't have any backbone until close to the end of the book.
The interaction between Emma and Jack (the stranger) is pretty nice. This Jack guy is a pretty good catch. You can already predict at the beginning that the two will hook up. There's just the thing with telling a secret and telling some astronomical secret like Jack's. Emma takes opening up to a person and talking feelings as telling each other secrets. Jack figures this out at the end, but it was too late because he told her the huge secret.
With a little help from Jack, Emma gets some backbone. It would have been nice that she found this strength on her own. This was my only pet peeve with the book. Everything else was very good.”
“This was also a cuty story by Kinsella, but not one of my favorites. The end was unsatisfying, and Jack's character was somewhat bland. I understand that his character was very private, but compared to Kinsella's other leading men he was lacking.”Allison J wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“Definitely chick lit! I could absolutely see it in movie form - I would recommend listening to it on CD so you can hear it with a British accent - it totally enhances the reading experience. I have to admit that I laughed out loud from time to time too!”Mrs. Murphy wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“CC likes This author, and I'd picked up these books for her. I'd only read one of the Shopaholic novels, and really didn't care for it at all. I was looking for something quick and fluffy - and this was totally that.”Carol wrote this review 3 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Very light, somewhat humorous read. A lady on a plane- who is deathly afraid of flying- believes they are going down when they hit some turbulence, and therefore spouts all of her life's secrets off to the man sitting next to her. They land safely, and obviously meet again. ”Beth S wrote this review Monday, April 29, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I love me some Sophie Kinsella! This was a fun read, as are all of her books. Frivolous and light, Can You Keep a Secret is a good break/distraction from more serious reading material. (Not that I've had any serious reading material as of late) All of Sophie's books have just a touch of the unbelievable, but only enough to make for an interesting story. And, it's so easy to get immersed in her characters that one is willing to suspend disbelief at least a little. From a woman's perspective, the leading lady always make slightly different *ahem* moral choices than I would make, which would be the only disappointing part and the reason I would be careful recommending this and other Sophie Kinsella books.”Jaimie wrote this review Friday, April 26, 2013.

“This is a very interesting book that I have read. This is another of Sophie Kinsella's books and once again, a really good one. Its about a young woman Emma Corrigan, who has some secrets. Once on an airoplane, when there was a danger of a crash, in panic she told all her secrets to the strange man sitting next to her, and when they actually landed,after a few days they met again at work. Someone who knew all her secrets from her boyfriend, mom, work and friends. Read the book to find out what will happen between them. I really enjoyed reading it, and I'm sure any girl would. I would definately recomend this book to girls and ladies because this not only tells how she got out from the situation, but also teaches you a lesson. Don't tell strangers your secrets.”Liza Shevetovska 7DH wrote this review Tuesday, April 30, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
