Books by Sophie Kinsella

Shopaholic & Sister and Can you Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella are great reading. Fun characters, great stories, good entertainment. Shopaholic & Sister is actually the fourth in a series about Becky Bloomwood, ex-financial expert and shopper extraordinaire. Becky has a bit of a shopping problem that any woman can relate to. But Becky's is worse, so yours doesn't feel so bad. Can you Keep a Secret? is about Emma, a girl trying to make it in the corporate world, both professionally and romantically. Ms. Kinsella looks at another aspect of women -- white lies and secrets. Everyone has them and most know the code -- if she say size six, it's an eight. Both novels are set in London, but the universal truths that both Becky and Emma face could be happening in the cube next to me. Ms Kinsella also has a website filled with fun quizzes and information about the two series she pens.
