Book Review – Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

I’m not a fan of being pigeonholed into what I should read, and what genre it should be filed under.  So, it was under some trepidation that I picked up ‘Can You Keep a Secret?’ tagged by that hideous term ‘Chick Lit.’  However, I was pleasantly surprised.

Emma, the heroine of the tale, is the girl with more than a few secrets.  Hey, but what’s a few between friends?  Nothing, you’d think until the day that she is sent by her marketing bosses to Glasgow to meet with a client.  After a hideous day, she takes the flight back to London and during terrible turbulence tells a complete stranger every secret she ever had.

This is a riotous read, so funny in parts that I nearly cried with laughter.  The end, I suppose has a slightly predictable slant to it, but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the story and I may well look for more by the same author.
