Review: Jojo Moyes - Paris For One and Other Stories
4.0Overall Score

An interesting collection of short fiction from this incredible author.

Plot: Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She’s never even been on a romantic weekend away—to anywhere—before. Traveling abroad isn’t really her thing. But when Nell’s boyfriend fails to show up for their mini-vacation, she has the opportunity to prove everyone—including herself—wrong. Alone in Paris, Nell finds a version of herself she never knew existed: independent and intrepid. Could this turn out to be the most adventurous weekend of her life? Funny, charming, and irresistible, Paris for One is quintessential Jojo Moyes—as are the other stories that round out the collection.

Remarks: I’ve been a fan of Jojo Moyes for many years so, naturally, I was excited to read this book – especially since she changed things up a bit with this collection of short stories. What was refreshing about this collection was the ease and simplicity of the stories. Many novels are incredibly thought through, long and packed with storylines and twists. In Paris For One and Other Stories, you get all that but in a miniture format. The main story was a beautiful, romantic story. Nell’s character was really interesting and one I think many can releate to. She heads through to Paris alone after her boyfriend doesn’t show up and it does wonders for her. It was so beautiful seeing her character grow throughout the pages and become the woman she blossoms into. It’s an easy but enjoyable read.

Rating: 4/5
