    This book has nine stories about troubled relationships from the perspectives of the women in each. The first, Paris for One, is the length of a novella while the others are all short stories. I liked some more than others but really enjoyed them collectively. The narration performance...

    4.5 stars. Delightful, relatable, and so charming this collection of shorts from #1 New York Times Bestselling author of ME BEFORE YOU and AFTER YOU. I'm slightly embarrassed to admit this is my first Jojo Moyes. I can't really say why, just that other books ended up on top of the rea...

    I loved Nell's story so much! The story truly shows the power in finding out who you can be. Plus, the mini stories included in the book are great snapshots of the characters' lives.Follow the Highly Caffeinated Victoria Colotta: Website | Facebook | Twitter @vcolotta | Instagram | Go...

    Well written, funny at times, and always (so so) too romantic. Maybe that is also an accurate description also for Jojo Moyes' Me Before You. It is the same here, with even a bit more coincidences here and there (that yes, bothered me).I liked mostly the long first story (but again, it...

    Being completely and totally honest I'm zanily surprised that 1. I read this book and 2. That I actually really enjoyed it!Modern romance novels are usually not my thing, but there was something up the feisty women and uplifting messages throughout that I really adored. Each short stor...

    There is something about the immediacy of a short story that draws me into both reading and writing them. Novels are immersive experiences drawn out over many pages and chapters. However, when written well, a short story can do the exact same thing and leave just as lasting an impressi...

    The first and longest story in this book is about mousy and predictable Nell who think she is about to embark on a romantic trip to Paris with her boyfriend who cancels at the last second. Since the room is booked and the tickets paid Nell does the first impulsive thing in her life and...

    If you like Jojo Moyes' writing style, you should indeed check out this book.Paris for One is the opening short story, and by far the most developed. Imagine heading out to Paris for a romantic weekend, only to have your boyfriend stand you up? The author created a tender tale of a you...

    Paris for One and Other Stories is a collection of short stories written by Jojo Moyes. In my opinion, most all of the stories are entertaining and engaging, although some were more enjoyable than others for me personally. Fans of women's fiction will surely be able to connect with a f...

    A very quick, fun, and satisfying read from a well celebrated (and deservedly so!) author. Great stories here will have you smiling from cover to cover. I couldn't help but compare this with the "stories you can't unread" collection of tales from Chuck Palahniuk. He's got the gift of w...
