Paris for One and Other Stories Reviews
Jojo Moyes is known for her engaging books that look at romantic relationships with insight and humor. This is a collection of nine contemporary stories.

París para uno y otras historias me ha dejado un poco con las ganas de leer más, pero me ha gustado, lo he disfrutado y siempre es un placer leer a Jojo Moyes, de verdad, me encanta demasiado como escribe esta mujer. En el blog os cuento más :)
This is my first book by this author. This book starts with the novella Paris for One - I think of it as a novella as most short stories don't have chapters.
I really liked Paris for One. The writing is so open and engaging that I read this novella of 100+ pages in one sitting. Great female characters and not all the men were worthless. Very enjoyable.

4☆ Great collection of short stories
This is my first book by Jojo it was a fun read with some great stories.
Each short story is very different.
However they feature romance, some humour, breakups, secret love affairs, a little mystery and lots of different emotions.
