Description

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?

Professional reviews

"Fans of Kinsella's dauntless Shopaholic series will leap at the chance to listen to Emma Corrigan's secrets in this engaging romance. The best moments are truly great. The plot is uproariously funny when the secrets are spilled and the snappy dialogue gets going. Thanks in part to Kate Reading's performance, the listener can't help but identify with Emma, who craves success in spite of her shortcomings. Occasionally the story's internal musings go on too long, but, for the most part, this is a sweet novel with a crisp delivery from Reading, a master of accents and emotion. L.B.F.
