Description

One single mom. One chaotic family. One quirky stranger. One irresistible love story from the New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You
 
American audiences have fallen in love with Jojo Moyes. Ever since she debuted Stateside she has captivated readers and reviewers alike, and hit the New York Times bestseller list with the word-of-mouth sensation Me Before You. Now, with One Plus One, she’s written another contemporary opposites-attract love story.
 
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.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 05, 2014 – Bestselling British author Moyes (Me Before You) 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. Jess, barely able to make ends meet as a house cleaner after her husband, Marty, walks out, enlists the help of rich client Ed to drive her math-genius daughter Tanzie to a competition. If Tanzie wins, the prize will be enough to pay for her to attend a top-notch school. Along with Jess’s Goth stepson, Nicky, who is Marty’s son, and the slobbering family dog, Norman, the misfits cram into Ed’s car for an alternately hilarious and heartbreaking adventure. With side trips to visit Ed’s dying father and Jess’s now-estranged husband, the travelers learn to reconcile with pasts they can’t change and futures they’re afraid to imagine. “Good things happen to good people,” Jess insists. “You just have to keep faith.” 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.

Love, love, love!!!

This is one of those books that leave you feeling there's goodness in this world. I love the characters and the absolute love and respect they have for one another - it all comes down to family.

One Plus One

I love her books. She is a great storyteller. Her characters resonate. You simply do not know how it will end.

Love Moyes, Just Not This Time

JoJo Moyes is among my favorite contemporary writers. Her love of language, complex character studies, and sophisticated story telling are hall marks of her earlier work.

One Plus One is different. Still a good read, it lacks the rich language, unexpected plot turns, and character depth that I have come to expect in her writing. The book seemed formulaic and unable to take flight. Instead, it moves along like like a car driven at 40 miles an hour, unable to kick into fifth gear.

I wanted to love One Plus One, but couldn't. It felt like a first book and not the latest by a really exceptional storyteller. I sensed that Ms. Moyes did not love writing One Plus One any more than I loved reading it.
