Paris for One - Jojo Moyes

Paris for OneParis for One by Jojo Moyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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?

I have never read a Moyes book before, (I know, where have I been?!) And so I love the quick readathon they get released. I feel that it's a chance for me to discover authors I may never have come across before. Moyes is definitely going to be an author I look out for now.

Paris for One is about Nell, she is 26 and so far has never been away with a boyfriend before.

I really don't want to say too much as it will spoil it for you and this is a book you do not want spoilt! It is short, but I felt it was perfect. I was able to be will Nell on her trip to Paris and enjoy every moment. Not once while reading I felt rushed, which was really brilliant!

This is a quick read and perfect for anyone with a busy like that wants to dip into something. I read this in one sitting and really enjoyed it.

I would certainly recommend this quick read to everyone. It's light hearted fun.

Nell is a very likable character, one which I felt I could connect with. One of my favourite characters was actually the hotel assistant. I found I was reading her parts with a French accent in my head! The dialogue between her, Nell and the American Lady I found was very comical at times.

This book is perfect for chilling on the sofa with a cup of tea and some galaxy.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
