Weekly Reads: The One Plus One

One Plus One is the latest book from one of my favorite authors, Jojo Moyes. Previously I've fallen in love with her books The Last Letter from Your Lover and Me Before You so I was ecstatic to get my hands on an e-ARC to the book this spring. Jojo Moyes is great at telling a love story with so much more dimension than your typical love story, and this book was no different. However, it lacked some of the greatness of the previous two novels. Don't get me wrong, it was still an excellent read, but compared to the others, just wasn't as great. Still certainly worth a read!

My rating: 3.5
