Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella Review
|Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella|
Rating: 4/5 stars
Initially, I heard about this book from a book youtuber and she was raving about it, so checked out the synopsis of the book. It got me literally laughing out loud. As luck would have it, I stumbled upon this book in a used bookstore; I was ecstatic at the find. Keep in mind this is not my first time reading Sophie Kinsella, so I know there were more laugh as to where it came from.
Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella is a funny and entertaining book to read. Story line is very lighthearted with readers laughing chapter after chapter. I was rooting for Emma from beginning to end.
Kinsella's signature story format. Majority of her stories featured a damsel in distress and by the end of the story, she is a strong and independent woman. A Goodreads review hinted this idea out, which is valid and can be seen in Confession of a Shopaholic, Remember Me?, and Can You Keep a Secret. This does not make these stories even more entertaining as they already are.
Although Kinsella was able to create an amusing story, the relationship between Jack and Emma were not believable at time. I find it adorable how these two started off meeting each other. Development of their relationship got me questioning the author at time. It would been pleasing to be able to see how they are after a few more dates; rather than skipping them and go toward something else.
This delightful book by Sophie Kinsella is highly recommended to those who enjoy a feel good kind of book. There will be plenty of laughs I will guarantee.
