Title: Paris for One
Author: Jojo Moyes
Pages: 112 pages
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?
Firstly, I should say that I am a huge fan of Jojo Moyes writing and have never been disappointed in one of her stories. Therefore, I was beyond excited to read this short story. Besides the fact that I like books by Jojo Moyes and I am indeed a bibliophile I am also a self confessed Francophile. Win Win and Win!
I loved Paris for One. It had everything a girl could ask for in a short romantic story. Sweeping adventures, a hunk of a hero (yes, I actually used the word hunk) and it is set in the most romantic city in the world. Besides this, it had a really likeable heroine in Nell. Even though the story wasn’t that long you could see the character grow from mousy push over to someone with something that resembled gumption.
I tried my hardest not to be jealous of Nell but how could you not want a slice of her adventure? Well done Moyes, you have equally pleased me and made me envious. Kudos to you.
