Short & Sweet Review: Paris for One & Other Stories by Jojo Moyes


Title: Paris for One & Other Stories
Author: Jojo Moyes
Published: October 2017, Penguin Books
Format: Paperback, 320 pages
Source: Personal copy

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.

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts: I'm such a fan of Jojo Moyes and even though I don't tend to read a lot of short stories, I had to pick this one up. I enjoyed all these stories, though I admit, I liked some of them more than others. I actually liked the other ones more than the main one, which happened to be the longest one, but still would recommend picking this book up if you like Jojo Moyes writing and signature wit, you will be in for a treat. They all deal with troubled relationships and are entertaining if not a bit far-fatched, but overall, it's a good way to spend a few hours.



  1. I've got this one on the stacks because I love the author. Normally don't read short stories either, but every once in awhile!!

  2. Oooh, I didn't know Jojo Moyes wrote short fiction! I think I'd enjoy reading these stories. Wonderful review!
