Paris for One and Other Stories

£4.99

Product description

A collection of 11 unmissable short stories from the Number One internationally bestselling author of Me Before You and After You 'Lots to cheer about in Moyes' first collection of short stories.

If you want romance, the title story and its hapless heroine Nell will give it to you in spades. Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She's never even been on a romantic weekend away - to anywhere - before. Travelling abroad isn't really her thing. But when Nell's boyfriend fails to show up, she has the chance to prove to everyone - including herself - that she can be independent and intrepid. Alone in Paris, Nell finds a version of herself she never knew existed . . .

In the ten other stories, Jojo Moyes introduces us to a cast of strong women in the midst of their everyday lives.

In Honeymoon in Paris, featuring characters from her bestselling novel, The Girl You Left Behind, Liv and Sophie - though decades apart - both find that marriage is only the beginning of their love stories.

In Crocodile Shoes, a businesswoman's blossoming confidence emerges from a fateful changing-room mix-up. And in both Love in the Afternoon and A Bird in the Hand, two couples dance around the trickiness of long-time marriage.

In this irresistible collection, readers will be whisked from elegant perfume shops to taxis to five-star hotel rooms and more. Jojo Moyes takes every-day, real life moments and spins them into extraordinary, unforgettable stories - funny, charming, and unmissable - she is at her brilliant best.' A book that maps the wonder of everyday love'
