This collection of stories is just the bon bon of a book that I needed: Romance, resillience, and coming into one's own. I really want the author, Jojo Moyes, to write the story of my life. Her care of characters and details, her witty dialog would make it a great story. What I mean is, she can take the ordidnary and elevate it to the extraordinary.

From the publisher:
Nell is twenty-six and has never been to Paris. She’s never even been on a weekend away—to anywhere, and certainly not with her boyfriend. Everyone knows traveling abroad isn’t really her thing. But when Nell’s boyfriend fails to show up for their romantic mini-vacation, she has the opportunity to prove everyone—including herself—wrong. Alone and in Paris, Nell uncovers a version of herself she never knew existed: independent and intrepid. Adventurous, funny, and charming, Paris for One is vintage Moyes—as are the eight stories that round out the collection.
