Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes. Review 

Paris for One and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by Me Before You author Jojo Moyes. 

Some of the stories were shorter than others but all of them equally engaging and definitely relatable from a woman’s point of view. Like the story about the woman who wants a new coat and can’t afford the one she really wants. 


It’s a simple story but one that resonates because there’s an underlying story to it. It’s not really about the coat, it’s about the recession. It’s about the changes to people’s lives when the country falls into financial difficulty. 

There’s the romance of the main story Paris for One. The old story of an unsuitable boyfriend letting you down, only for your whole life to be turned upside down when your regimented life becomes impulsive and full of excitement. 


Paris features heavily in Other Stories as well. 

Overall I found this collection of stories really enjoyable. The subject matters covered everything from affairs to new shoes. Right through to my favourite story of all: The Christmas List. 

Love, loss, liberation, friendship. These stories have it all!
