About the Book
In the novella, PARIS FOR ONE, Moyes introduces readers to Nell, who 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, Nell 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. Adventurous, funny, and charming, PARIS FOR ONE and the eight stories that round out this collection are classic Jojo Moyes.
Paris has always featured prominently in Moyes’s writing: Me Before You ends with Lou in Paris, honoring Will’s wish for her; After You flashes back to Lou’s time in Paris as she starts her new life; The Girl You Left Behind is a breathtaking story of love, loss, and sacrifice set against the backdrop of Paris in the throes of World War I. With PARIS FOR ONE, Moyes does what she does best—and gives readers a strong, lovable female lead who finds her true self in the City of Love.
