Publisher's Summary

Nell is 26 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. Could this turn out to be the most adventurous weekend of her life?

A fun short-story

This was an enjoyable short story. My only complaint was how the narrator pronounces 'says' but maybe that's because I'm Aussie and we don't say it like that. A great book to get as a 'filler' i.e when you're in between some intense books.

Entertaining frippery!

This is a very short story, had it playing in the background while doing chores this evening and before I knew it, it had come to a (quite abrupt) end. The narration was a bit rushed, but the whole thing fitted the bill of being a very easy listen. Bought on a special deal, I think I would have felt short changed if I'd used up a credit to purchase this.

Excellent

An excellent short story. Escapism and the feel good factor makes this a story that you have to finish.

Paris for one

I thought it was a well thought out story with twists and just when you think you know what will happen the story takes a turn in a different direction. Really enjoyable book for a short read.

ok ish

What would have made Paris for One better?

this was the second one of Jo Jo Moyes books that I have read and although it was good I didnt find it addictive like the last one but an enjoyable read.

Women aren't weak

Tries to be empowering by a woman going it alone in France but "she didn't think she'd ever seen a woman eating alone before" - seriously?
Main character a flop. Reflection of the one dimentional story.

Good short story

Good story but very short! I can’t recall how much I paid for it but I hope I didn’t use a credit on it. Quite an abrupt ending. That said, I did enjoy it.

The greatest love fest city

Cute little novella which was both enjoyable and quite amusing . Nicely paced and in this case well narrated it brings the memories of Paris flooding back.

Easy listening

A easy listening book, nicely read. What I would call a sunny Sunday afternoon book, light and cheerful.

Great story

A captivating story.
A great pity it's not a full length book.
Is there a sequel? I really hope that there is!
