From the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars,  Paris for One and Other Stories is an irresistibly romantic collection filled with humor and heart. 

“A vicarious jolt of Parisian romance. . . Delightful.” –People Magazine

"An old-fashioned, feel-good love story. . . It’s as if Moyes has booked a vacation and is taking us along. To Paris. Amour!” –USA Today
“Dreamy escapism, a book you can curl up with and easily finish over a weekend, with or without a glass of wine.” –Miami Herald
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.

Industry Reviews

Praise for "After You" "Jojo Moyes has a hit with "After You." "USA Today " Think Elizabeth Bennet after Darcy s eventualdeath; Alice after Gertrude; Wilbur after Charlotte. The 'aftermath' is a subject most writers understandably avoid, but Moyes has tackled it and given readers an affecting, even entertaining female adventure tale about a broken heroine who ultimately rouses herself and falls in love again, this time with the possibilities in her own future.. " "Maureen Corrigan, "Fresh Air, "NPR" " The genius of Moyes . . . [is that she] peers deftly into class issues, social mores, and complicated relationships that raise as many questions as they answer. And yet there is always resolution. It s not always easy, it s not always perfect, it s sometimes messy and not completely satisfying. But sometimes it is. Bobbi Dumas, "N""PR.org " Charming. "People" Expect tears and belly laughs from "Me Before You" s much anticipated sequel. " "Cosmopolitan "" Moyes is at her most charming here, writing with a sense of humorous affection about family dynamics among working-classBrits. . . . a Maeve Binchy for the 21st century. " Kirkus Reviews" " " [A] heart-tugger. " "Good Housekeeping"" Like its predecessor ["Me Before You"], "After You" is a comic and breezy novel that also tackles bigger, more difficult subjects, in this case grief and movingon. . . . We all lose what we love at some point, but in her poignant, funny way, Moyes reminds us that even if it s not always happy, there is an ever after. " Miami Herald " Once again, Moyes delivers a heart-wrenching and relatable book about love and loss that will stay with you long after you ve finished. "" "InStyle.com " Moyes wisely knows that life-changing events don t always change our lives for the better. . . . "After You" may not be the sequel you expect, but it is the sequel you needed. " " Entertainment Weekly" " "After You" is an immersive experience, inviting readers back into the homes of the characters they fell in love with in "Me Before You." They ll experience the mourning that follows a devastating loss, and the glimmers of hope that propel the brokenhearted forward. "" " BookPage"" " ["After You"] left me thrilled by the possibilities of fiction to entertain and inform, and astounded by [Moyes s] deep well of talent and imagination. " Bask "magazine Praise for "Me Before You" A hilarious, heartbreaking, riveting novel . . . I will stake my reputation on this book. Anne Lamott, "People" When I finished this novel, I didn t want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . An affair to remember. "The New York Times Book Review" An unlikely love story . . . To be devoured like candy, between tears. "O, The Oprah Magazine" Funny and moving but never predictable. "USA Today" (four stars) Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . ." "Me Before You" "is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy. " "New York Daily News" " Praise for "One Plus One" Safety advisory: If you re planning to read Jojo Moyes s "One Plus One" on your summer vacation, slather on plenty of SPF 50. Once you start the book, you probably won t look up again until you re the last one left on the beach. . . . [A] wonderful new novel. "The Washington Post" Jojo Moyes new novel "One Plus One "adds up to a delightful summer read, where the whole is greater than the sum of its charming parts. . . . Moyes observations on modern life are dryly hilarious. . . . You don t need to be a math whiz to figure out this book is one worth adding to your summer reading list. "USA Today" (four stars) Bridget Jones meets "Little Miss Sunshine" in this witty British romp from bestseller Moyes. . . . Wryly romantic and surprisingly suspenseful. "People" Fans of the 2006 summer sleeper hit "Little Miss Sunshine" will find a lot to love in British author Jojo Moyes latest, about a madcap road trip that s packed to the boot with familial drama, class clashes, and romance. "Entertainment Weekly" (A-) No need to worry where this road trip is headed. Just sit back, roll down your window and enjoy being a passenger. "Cleveland Plain Dealer""
