Mild spoilers; Contemporary Romance
If there is one author who can pull at my heartstrings, it’s Jojo Moyes. Her words are filled with a sense of melancholy and an almost bittersweet feeling. When you start one of her novels, you know you’ll be reading something real. Something that will stick with you.
Paris For One & Other Stories is a collection of nine stories–one novella and eight short stories.
The novella follows Nell (good, sweet, dependable Nell) as she makes the impulsive decision to buy tickets for a weekend in Paris with her boyfriend Pete. Pete is an unreliable tool and bails on her, leaving Nell to fend for herself in Paris.
Things aren’t bad, though, because we meet Fabien. He’s going through his own personal love-life crisis.
Paris is a magical place and sometimes the things that were always meant to be happen. We all love a happy ending, don’t we?
The other stories provided are lovely as well. Some short, sweet snippets, others a little bit longer. All will leave you smiling, wondering, and looking to visit Paris yourself.

Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is thrown into the world of the superrich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world.
Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets–not all her own–that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?
