One single mom. One chaotic family. One quirky stranger. One irresistible love story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars
 
Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight in shining armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages . . . maybe ever.
 
One Plus One is Jojo Moyes at her astounding best. You’ll laugh, you’ll weep, and when you flip the last page, you’ll want to start all over again.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Good storytelling. New York Daily News
'In this moving paean to daring, determination and perspicacity, Moyes keeps the reader guessing down to the last hankie. Los Angeles Times
Jojo Moyes builds on her strengths in this moving and accomplished new novel. As she did in the best-selling Me Before You, she asks readers to think in fresh ways about a morally complex issue. . . . The Girl You Left Behind is strong, provocative, satisfying fiction.—The Washington Post
In her latest heart tugger, Jojo Moyes deftly weaves the story of newlyweds in WWI France with that of a young widow in today’s London. Parade
Lovely and wry, Moyes’s newest is captivating and bittersweet. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Moyes (Me Before You, 2012) writes with such clarity that one can almost see the eponymous 100-year-old painting at the center of her wonderful new novel. . . .  an uncommonly good love story. Booklist
Moyes (Me Before You) has created a riveting depiction of a wartime occupation that has mostly faded from memory. Liv and Sophie are so real in their faults, passion, and bravery that the reader is swept along right to the end. This one is hard to put down! Library Journal (starred review)
Moyes writes delicious plots, with characters so clearly imagined they leap off the pages in high-definition prose. USA Today (3 1/2 stars)
Jojo Moyes expertly weaves a bittersweet tale in this irresistible novel, taking careful interest in the dark corners that exist within great love stories, and the trickiness of simple happy endings. A- Entertainment Weekly
Vibrant and gripping. People (***)
”Moyes is the queen of the classy weepy, and this won’t disappoint. A master class in storytelling that fans of Me before You will adore.” Elle
“Moyes does a majestic job of conjuring a cast of characters who are charismatic, credible, and utterly compelling.” Independent (London)
One Plus One equals one fine novel. With its ensemble cast of skillfully crafted characters—from single-mom Jess Thomas to tortured goth teen Nicky and gifted sister Tanzie to Ed Nicholls, technology millionaire—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.” Booklist (starred review)
“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.” Library Journal
“Bestselling British author Moyes blends a sobering commentary on the widening gap between haves and have-nots into this quirky tale of lopsided families finding the courage to love…There’s never anything predictable about stubbornly optimistic 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
“Popular British author Moyes offers another warmhearted, off-kilter romance, this one between a financially strapped single mother and a geeky tech millionaire…A road-trip-from-hell romantic comedy ensues.” Kirkus Reviews
“A funny story about an unlikely romance between two people with more than their share of family dysfunction.” RT Book Reviews
