It would be hard to imagine anyone other than Gray giving voice to Emma Corrigan, the heroine of Kinsella's hilarious new confection (after Shopaholic Ties the Knot). With her flirty British accent, Gray perfectly delivers the hysterical monologues that Emma, a marketing assistant, directs towards the handsome man sitting next to her on a turbulent flight between Glasgow and London. Emma spills intimate details about her G-string, G-spot, the fact that she's never been in love and much more. But to Emma's chagrin, the handsome man on the plane turns out to be Jack Harper, CEO of her company. Emma hopes Jack will forget all about her, but he seems bent on getting to know her, first forcing her to admit she deserves better than her boring boyfriend Conor, then convincing her that he is a better choice. Although he never seems to share his own secrets, Emma can't help falling in love with Jack and his glamorous lifestyle. But then the unthinkable happens—Jack reveals Emma's secrets on national television in front of her family, friends and co-workers. What happens next? That's a secret. What's not is that this fast-paced, fluffy audiobook goes down as easily as cotton candy and is twice as sweet.

The author of the Shopaholic trilogy offers up a delightful new novel, filled with her trademark wit and humor. When her plane en route from Glasgow to London experiences horrible turbulence, Emma Corrigan is convinced she is going to die. She babbles all of her most intimate thoughts and secrets to the handsome American man sitting next to her. But the plane lands safely, and Emma bids him an awkward good-bye. When she enters the office on Monday and learns the CEO of the company, Jack Harper, is in for a visit, Emma is horrified to learn Jack is actually the man in whom she confided on the flight. He knows everything, including that she hates her job and that she is not quite sure she loves her boyfriend. But Jack does not fire her on the spot; instead, he quietly replaces the office coffeemaker she hates and gives her advice about her personal life, which she finds infuriating. So why can't she stop thinking about him? Kinsella has another irresistible hit on her hands. Kristine Huntley

Emma Carrington has many secrets. Not big secrets. Just these tiny little ones like how she's afraid of flying, or how she told her boyfriend she was a size 4 instead of an 8 and so on. On a flight back from an important meeting the plane hits some really bad turbulence and she. believes the plane will crash and they will all die. As she's freaking out she spills all these secrets to the stranger sitting next to her. What she didn't expect was to see him again or that he'd be at her workplace for the next week.
Jake Harper is one of the founders of the Panther Cola company and a marketing genius. Along with his best friend Pete they created an empire. But a year ago Pete died in a car accident and with grief Jake lost interest in everything. He's finally coming around and is in London checking up on his company there. When he met Emma on the plane he was gripped the moment she started talking. He never thought he'd see her again but fate had other plans. He can't stop thinking about her and all her cute secrets so he plays along when he sees her working for his company. Being around her is refreshing after all this time of grief and feeling empty. She sees the world in a different way, just like Pete used to. But with a big secret of his own will they have a chance at being together or will they crash and burn before really taking off?
Fair warning... you will laugh out loud many times while reading this book and at the most unexpected moments so I suggest not reading it in public places, that is unless you don't mind people looking at you like you're crazy. :D
Emma is a spazz. She thinks the plane she is on is going to crash so she tells all of her secrets to the guy sitting next to her. Then it turns out that he is her boss.
I'm not sure I liked any of the characters in this book. Emma is obnoxious with her insecurities and immaturity. How old is Jack? What he did to Emma is unforgivable. All of her coworkers were mean spirited, ruthless, and despicable human beings except for Katie. Her family was made up of a bunch of jerks, clueless parents, and a selfish unloving cousin. Jemima is a disgusting, vapid, hateful person. Lissy is just blah, playing the typical best friend.
There really isn't much positive stuff I can say about the book. I laughed once. I was too horrified the rest of the time by the lack of real depth anywhere in this book.
HAHAHA! What a fun, light read! I don't mean 'light' in a bad way either, I mean this book is just fun and easy to put down, pick back up again. I found myself reading shorter bits and not wanting it to end, savoring the wit of the main character and the very idea for the storyline. As a writer myself, I admire writers who can just grab you from the beginning, and have you put yourself into the storyline as it goes. Well, Kinsella is wonderful at that. I really rooted for poor Emma C. I think we can all identify with her on some level. Working hard, afraid of looking like a dolt but then putting herself into situations where she ends up with either her heart on her sleeve or wishing she had kept her mouth shut! Her family is a hoot, so are her work issues. I am smiling just thinking back to some of the funniest bits. I'll go ahead and say it, I wanna be BFFs with Emma!
If you are looking for something funny, this is it. If you love reading Evanovich, give Kinsella a try! If you just enjoy lighthearted situations and 'Cinderella' types of dreams, I really think you will like Can You Keep A Secret. Which of us has not been in a situation where we maybe felt we had shared a little too much about ourselves??!! Emma sure has :0)
