Staff Reviews

Jojo Moyes writes romantic comedy tempered with a social edge.  Ed, a highflying techie, sold the company he founded with his best friend for major bucks. A momentary indiscretion will bring it crashing down like a house of cards.  Jess is the woman who cleans his high-end vacation home.  She works two jobs, cleaning during the day and waitressing at a bar at night, trying to make ends meet.  Her husband ran home to Mom, leaving her in debt with two kids to raise.  She is exhausted, broke, and worried about her children. Ed and Jess live in different universes, their paths should not converge but they do.  A series of unrelated events cause their world’s to collide.  Ed has been taking stock and isn’t entirely pleased with himself.  In a weak moment he offers to do something totally unselfish and drive Jess and her family along with their flatulent dog across country to a math competition that means a lot to Jess’s precocious daughter, Tanzie.  Ed is the orderly sort, his luxury vehicle has never experienced the kind of turmoil a family with kids and a dog can inflict.  Ed and his car have this in common.  Funny, tragic, and ultimately hopeful, this is a charmer.

“Jess is a single mom working two jobs to support her kids -- Nicky, her goth-like teenage stepson, and Tanzie, her math whiz daughter - who are both struggling to find their way in the world. Ed is a tech millionaire facing charges of insider trading, whose vacation home Jess happens to clean. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Tanzie throws this unlikely group together, sending them on a hellish, hilarious road trip littered with mishaps, misunderstandings, and moments of clarity. The bestselling author of Me Before You offers another unforgettable tale reminding readers that families and love stories both come in all shapes and sizes.”
