One secret could change everything...

One New Year’s Eve, Georgie James and her friends come up with a genius plan to help them stick to their resolutions… They all write down secrets, seal them in envelopes and then post them to each other. The secrets will be revealed at the end of the year if they haven’t kept their resolutions.

It’s perfect. Except…

Georgie's secret is BIG... and revealing it could destroy their friendships. She has no idea why she chose that one to write down. There are plenty of innocent things she could have said – even admitting she finds newcomer Raf incredibly annoying would have been better.

What she does know is that there’s no way she can let her secret be revealed. Which means she needs to keep her (nightmare) resolutions and, most importantly, get her envelope back before anyone can open it. Which, given she sent her secret to Raf, means spending a lot more time with him than she’d choose to...

An absolutely gorgeous and heartwarming romance for fans of Beth O’Leary and Mhairi McFarlane

Four women, being best friends for decades, decide while being drunk to do New Year's Resolution with the treat of a penalty: a secret to be revealed if they fail the things they tried to commit themselves to. And from there on things go pear-shaped.

A very enjoyable book, not just for the friendly banter and people having each other's back, but for it being about the universal theme of not being good enough, the feeling of being second best. And because some of the problems were not all magically gone by the end of the story, for instance some toxic relationships. There will always be those who don't have your back and with that the imperfect happy ending gives Can You Keep A Secret a way more real-life quality.

And let me admit I couldn't help but think of Raf as Rufus Sewell from the Aurelio Zen series :)

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of the book.
