Book review: Paris for One - JoJo Moyes


Bestselling author Jojo Moyes brings us a charming and heart-warming short story in association with Quick Reads.

Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She has never even been on a weekend away with her boyfriend. Everyone knows she is just not the adventurous type.

But, when her boyfriend doesn't turn up for their romantic mini-break, Nell has the chance to prove everyone wrong.

Alone in Paris, Nell meets the mysterious moped-riding Fabien and his group of carefree friends. Could this turn out to be the most adventurous weekend of her life?

My opinion.
What a charming novella! In what literally seems like only a few pages, JoJo Moyes introduces two fabulous characters and the most heartbreaking yet romantic setting at the same time.
What could have been the worst weekend ever for Nell, turns into the perfect movie-like scenario.
My only regret is that this wasn't a full length novel. Both the story-line and the characters could have easily filled a 400 page novel and I would have been completely in love.
Paris For One is the perfect holiday read. Stay away from the internet though, 'cause you just might book yourself a trip to Paris after reading this!
