With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets: Secrets from her mother: Sammy the goldfish in my parents' kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt. Secrets from her boyfriend: I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken. From her colleagues: When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times. Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world: My G-string is hurting me.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--Until they do.
"From the Hardcover edition.
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. Simultaneous release with the Dial hardcover (Forecasts, Jan. 5). (Mar.)

In this follow-up to Kinsella's popular "Shopaholic" novels, anxious Emma spills her innermost secrets to a seatmate during a turbulent plane ride, then discovers that he is her company's CEO. Kate Hudson will star in the movie. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

If you are looking for something relaxing and makes you laugh this is definitely one of the best option you can have.

When you read the book you can really link yourself to all the feelings that Emma's having.
The book is so funny I can't stop smiling to myself. Just be aware, once you started you probably won't be able to put down the book until you're finished. I would like to give a special mention to Jemima, even tho she's not the most lovable character in the book but she's definitely one of the character who brought me most of the fun!
This is a great read. It is hilarious. I could not put it down. Emma, the main character, is in her 20s she spills her guts to the guy she is sitting next to in business class on the plane back from Glasgow to London. It is so funny when she goes back to work and realises that the person she was sitting next to on the plane was actually her boss. The tale then unfolds...
I have lent this book to both of my sisters and they raved about this book!!
Just read this from cover to cover last night - not exactly deep and meaningful but a great read if you're in the mood for lighthearted engaging chick "flick" of a novel. Emma's learning curve to just be herself is the theme of the book and is one that is good to be reminded of.
This book is brilliant! It's hard these days for women in their early twenties which are sick of reading either teen reads and/or "I'm-in-my thirties" novels.
This is a story about a young woman trying to make her way in the world the wrong way. She tells fibs, is great at self delusion and creates more mess for herself than anything else.
Truly one of the greatest books to read when you're looking for romance and a HUGE laugh. Witty, different and light.
