Paris for One is a collection of short stories by Jojo Moyes, anchored by a story about a woman who was stood up by her boyfriend for a romantic weekend trip to Paris. I picked this book up because I had recently travelled to Paris and I also really enjoyed Jojo Moyes’ most iconic work, Me Before You.
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.
