SOON 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?].
