Review quote

Praise for ONE PLUS ONE: Safety advisory: If you re planning to read Jojo Moyes sOne Plus Oneon 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 [a] wonderful new novel. The Washington Post Jojo Moyes new novel One Plus One adds up to a delightful summer read, where the whole is greater than the sum of its charming parts Moyes observations on modern life are dryly hilarious You don t need to be a math whiz to figure out this book is one worth adding to your summer reading list. USA Today(4 stars) Bridget Jones meetsLittle Miss Sunshinein this witty British romp from bestseller Moyes Wryly romantic and surprisingly suspenseful. People Fans of the 2006 summer sleeper hitLittle Miss Sunshinewill find a lot to love in British author Jojo Moyes latest, about a madcap road trip that s packed to the boot with familial drama, class clashes, and romance In Moyes deft hands, even a bout of kebab-induced food poisoning is somehow charming. You ll be rooting for this ragtag group of strivers until the very last page. Entertainment Weekly(A-) Jojo Moyes latest novel has humor, heartbreak and romance a.k.a. the perfect beach read. Lucky Magazine The delightful, comic ONE PLUS ONE is as likable a book as you will come across this summer, light and funny sharply drawn characters, genuinely amusing scenarios and a compelling warmth for all of these endearing misfits (even Norman). Miami Herald The author of last year s heartbreakerMe Before Youreturns with another page-turner AARP An irresistible mix of romance and humor Dallas Morning News No need to worry where this road trip is headed. Just sit back, roll down your window and enjoy being a passenger. Cleveland Plain Dealer Moyes has a remarkable gift for creating balanced, deep characters who struggle to find their own way. Filled with humor, and insight... she has written an emotional, rich, and satisfying novel. Highly recommended. Library Journal(starred review) One Plus Oneequals one fine novel.... Bravo to Moyes for delivering characters in a story readers will truly care about. Is that Hollywood calling? Booklist There s never anything predictable about stubbornly optimist and protective Jess and her oddball kids, or the distracted Ed and his disjointed work-family relationships. It s exactly that quality that makes this offbeat journey so satisfying, and Moyes s irrepressible flaws-and-all characters so memorable. Publishers Weekly Lev Grossman atTimegave ONE PLUS ONE 2-1 odds for becoming the 2014 Book of the Summer included ONE PLUS ONE in their list of 8 Books to Read in July: With surefire prose and a likeable protagonist, Moyes captures the comic charms of single motherhood and middle-aged dating in this humor-filled, haphazard love story far from simple or unexpected. Serious beach read potential here, friends."show more
