Reviews


Raw, funny, real and sad, this is storytelling at its best.
Marie Claire


These are characters you'll rot for, laugh with, and cry with...Real, life-affirming and poignant.
Ahlan!


A love story, a road trip and family drama all rolled into one brilliant page turner. Jojo Moyes has triumphed again.
Hello! Book of the month


It’s a book to both giggle and weep over.
Metro


This is excellent bedtime reading, perfect for warming your heart on a cold winter’s night.
Woman


Grab a box of tissues – this packs an emotional punch.
New!


Jojo Moyes is, simply, one of the best storytellers we have. She has an almost unique way of laying modern life open in all its honest, messy and complex glory and showing a real truth about what it is to be us, what it is to be alive.
World Book Night


Summer and Jojo Moyes' delightful novels go perfectly together!
People Magazine


Moyes creates tremendously enticing worlds populated with believable, likeable characters complete with all-too-human flaws and foibles, who are often engaged in extraordinarily testing emotional and practical situations...A beautifully written love story.
Daily Mail


Safety advisory: If you’re planning to read Jojo Moyes’s One Plus One on your summer vacation, slather on plenty of SPF 50. Once you start the book, you probably won’t look up again until you’re the last one left on the beach.

Moyes’s last novel, Me Before You, was an international hit. Math prodigy Tanzie would probably agree that this follow-up is just as good — maybe even fractionally ahead — in its charms.

The One Plus One adds up to a delightful summer read.
USA Today


A light-hearted novel that mingles a memorable cast of characters with a road trip that is anything but routine.
Muses & Visionaries
Full Review


Light-as-air, exquisitely enjoyable prose that’s also grounded in granite-solid technique.
Dallas News


Wryly romantic and surprisingly suspenseful.

You’ll be rooting for this ragtag group of strivers until the very last page.

This book is delightful. Written with humour, wit and tenderness it’s Jojo at her very best. The characters carried me with them right through to the end and I really cared what happened. And I cried, a lot! If you don’t know Jojo, you must, your life will be richer for it! Santa Montefiore


One Plus One equals one fine novel. With its ensemble cast of skillfully crafted characters...each person’s story flows on its own, yet they all meld together into an uncommonly good story about family, trust, and love...Bravo to Moyes for delivering toothsome characters in a story readers will truly care about. Is that Hollywood calling?
Booklist (starred review)


So memorable
Publishers Weekly
Full Review


this amazing novel is about more than a road trip; it is about trust, dignity, desperation, and, ultimately, love. Moyes has a remarkable gift for creating balanced, deep characters who struggle to find their own way. With humor, and insight, and an amazing ability to see how personal hitting rock bottom can become, she has written an emotional, rich, and satisfying novel. Highly recommended.
Literary Journal


Quirky and memorable.
Red


Guaranteed bestseller.
Sunday Express


Another sure-fire hit… A beautifully written modern love story from Britain’s best contemporary female author.
Sun on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine


Compulsive reading.
Woman & Home


This is the highly-anticipated newest novel from the author of 2012 bestseller Me Before You, and, like that one, you’ll need tissues.
