Paris For One

Paris for One and Other Stories - Jojo Moyes

I read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and really loved that novel but I haven’t yet read the sequel. When I saw this novel by Jojo at the library, I had to grab it. Reading that it contained small romantic stories, I knew that it would be perfect for my last novel for the year. It had a good variety of stories, I enjoyed the variety in length and content and I loved most of them. There were only a few of them that I was not totally thrilled with as I thought they were not as developed as the others or I just didn’t feel as connected to the characters as I felt I should have been otherwise, the rest of novel was fabulous. It is definitely worth checking out, there were some unexpected moments in some of the stories.

 

I really enjoyed the first story which was the longest. A romantic trip to Paris for cautious Nell with her boyfriend doesn’t go as intended. As Nell starts to let go of her fears, she begins to realize that it’s okay to take some chances in life. It’s Paris and Nell meets Fabian, need I say more?

 

Then there is a story about Frank who claims someone is trying to frame him for an affair. This story was fabulous and I thought I had it all figured out and I was wrong. Thanks Jojo for that one. I also enjoyed the cell phone story and the story about the individuals who meet up years later in life. What a great book to end 2016 with.
