When I learned that Jojo Moyes had new book out I was excited. Then I saw the dreaded words “...and Other Stories.” I’m not much for short stories. So, I put it into the car cd-player thinking I’d give it five minutes and ended up sitting in the driveway listening longer than my drive!
Paris for One was super! This is actually a novella. The characters were wonderful, the story believable. I loved it. I hope there will be a follow-up–a sequel a few years after the story.
Crocodile Shoes–I laughed hard and had to share it with my daughter, who did her first “real job” presentations this week. Read the story and you’ll understand.
Holdups–A sweet, funny, scary holdup? Of course!
Last Year’s Coat–Married love at it’s best. And I can’t stop thinking about a coat my Mom “endured” so we could have what we wanted.

A Bird in the Hand–Should have stayed on the hard drive or in the drawer.

I’ve loved every book of hers I’ve read so far.
