Can You Keep a Secret?

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Sophie Kinsella

Narrated By: Kate Reading

Date: December 2003

Duration: 10 hours 45 minutes


NOW 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

    I really enjoyed this. It wasn't earth-shattering or anything. Just great escapism.

    The best narrator for me so far! I really enjoyed it

  • Amanda M.

    Light and funny read/listen. Took me a few chapters to get into, but once I did I needed to keep listening to find out what predicament Emma would get into next!

  • Laurel-Manette W

    This was one of the worst books I've ever read, and by far the worst book I've ever listened to on audio. I read Sophie Kinsella's "I've got your number" and loved it so much that I wanted to try another of her books. Boy was I disappointed!! The narrator was horrid, and the story so basic and predictable and not compelling at all, it was hard to get through. The only reason I kept listening to it was because it is non refundable! Truly lackluster, ANNOYING book! I LOOOVE romantic comedy chick lit but this is dreadful.

  • Kim B

    Probably her best so far. 4.5 stars. I like the tension when she decides not to forgive him.

  • STAMATUla s

    All of Sophie Kinsella's books are very entertaining. The narrator did a great job - I especially enjoyed when she spoke in the voices of the secondary characters. Highly recommended!

  • grace rita De joya

    enjoyed listening - main character reminded me a lot of Bridget Jones?

  • Ana Gutierrez

    Great book! Like all Sophie Kinsella's books!! It makes you laugh and the story has you wondering what will happen next!

  • Charlotte Nelms

    Kinsella has a clever sense of humor! An uplifting humorous book. Is the book a great classic? No. Is it entertaining? Very.

  • Vicki S.

    This is one of the poorest books I ever listened to. I would not recommend it to anyone. The majority of it is written in the thoughts of Emma. The synopsis of this book says that it is a funny book. I found it just the opposite. I would find it hard to rent books by this author again. I would be cautious to do so.
