Summary

Nell is 26 and has never been to Paris. She's never even been on a romantic weekend away 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 this collection of 11 unmissable short stories, Jojo Moyes introduces us to a cast of strong, relatable women in the midst of their everyday lives.

Big disappointment, Jojo

Have loved most, or at least many, of her books, especially The 1+1, Me after You and its sequel. Impression here is that she had to churn something out to meet a deadline and chucked a few short stories together. In most cases (especially the title tale), you could write the ending by the end of the first few paras; and it has the most annoying narrator of all time. Pretty sure the honeymoon tale is a revamp of something of hers which I've read before. Guess we all have our moments.

The narrator is the most annoying I've ever heard

Would you try another book written by Jojo Moyes or narrated by the narrators?

I would have loved this book if I'd read it but the narrator, with her baby voices trying to be cute and the way she pronounced 'says' drove me MAD – I couldn't even finish it as found the terrible voices so annoying I wasn't concentrating on what she was saying. Such a shame, and such a waste of my money :(

Good collection of stories

Good variation of characters and stories - however the first story had a very irritating narrator - once past her though, the rest was good.

Excellent stories

Excellent stories, thoroughly enjoyed listening to them. It was interesting listening to one of the stories which is the beginning of a relationship from another book. Loved it

I really enjoyed this

I don’t normally read short stories as I prefer a full length story but I enjoyed these. Really nice selection though some of them I would have liked to have been a little longer.
