Review

Praise for Silver Bay

"Surprising and genuinely moving." --The Times (London)

"Moyes keeps you guessing in this satisfying love story." --Marie Claire (UK)

"Moyes is a tremendously gifted storyteller." --Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

"Touching and impossible to put down." --Daily Express (London)

"Unashamedly romantic." --Elle (UK)

Praise for Paris for One and Other Stories:

“Moyes is in fine, cheeky form in this collection of short fiction, deploying the wit and charm that animates Me Before You and her other popular novels. The title novella offers a vicarious jolt of Parisian romance, while shorter stories deliver pithy insights into the joys and woes of marriage, ending with delightful twists.” --People

“An old-fashioned, feel-good love story. . .  ["Paris for One" is] as light as a French pastry. It will make you smile and even, maybe, sigh. It’s as if Moyes has booked a vacation and is taking us along. To Paris. Amour! . . . Think of these short fictions as palate cleansers after the sweet, tasty Parisian treat Moyes so deliciously serves up.” –USA Today

“Paris for One and Other Stories. . . [is]  dreamy escapism, a book you can curl up with and easily finish over a weekend, with or without a glass of wine.” –Miami Herald

"[A] charming novella. . . [and] a collection of short stories rounds out the work and adds up to an engaging way to spend fall's first chilly afternoon.”—Good Housekeeping

“These stories are a treat—quick, short nibbles of Moyes’ character genius, storytelling charisma, and writing grace, plus a new, intriguing format for the author, with the occasional surprising twist.” --Kirkus Reviews

"Vibrant. . .Bold, humorous and genuine, the stories in this collection are classic Moyes." Publishers Weekly

Praise for After You:

"Jojo Moyes has a hit with After You.USA Today

“Think Elizabeth Bennet after Darcy’s eventual death; Alice after Gertrude; Wilbur after Charlotte. The 'aftermath' is a subject most writers understandably avoid, but Moyes has tackled it and given readers an affecting, even entertaining female adventure tale about a broken heroine who ultimately rouses herself and falls in love again, this time with the possibilities in her own future..” —Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air, NPR 

“The genius of Moyes . . . [is that she] peers deftly into class issues, social mores, and complicated relationships that raise as many questions as they answer. And yet there is always resolution. It’s not always easy, it’s not always perfect, it’s sometimes messy and not completely satisfying. But sometimes it is.” —Bobbi Dumas, NPR.org

“Charming.”— People 

“Expect tears and belly laughs from Me Before You’s much anticipated sequel.” Cosmopolitan 

“Moyes is at her most charming here, writing with a sense of humorous affection about family dynamics among working-class Brits. . . a Maeve Binchy for the 21st century.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] heart-tugger.” Good Housekeeping

“Like its predecessor [Me Before You], After You is a comic and breezy novel that also tackles bigger, more difficult subjects, in this case grief and moving on. . . . We all lose what we love at some point, but in her poignant, funny way, Moyes reminds us that even if it’s not always happy, there is an ever after.” —Miami Herald

“Once again, Moyes delivers a heart-wrenching and relatable book about love and loss that will stay with you long after you’ve finished.” InStyle.com
 
“Moyes wisely knows that life-changing events don’t always change our lives for the better. . . . After You may not be the sequel you expect, but it is the sequel you needed.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
After You is an immersive experience, inviting readers back into the homes of the characters they fell in love with in Me Before You. They’ll experience the mourning that follows a devastating loss, and the glimmers of hope that propel the brokenhearted forward.” —BookPage  
 
“[After You] left me thrilled by the possibilities of fiction to entertain and inform, and astounded by [Moyes’s] deep well of talent and imagination.” —Baskmagazine

Praise for Me Before You:

“A hilarious, heartbreaking, riveting novel . . . I will stake my reputation on this book.” —Anne Lamott, People

“When I finished this novel, I didn’t want to review it: I wanted to reread it. . . . An affair to remember.” The New York Times Book Review

“An unlikely love story . . . To be devoured like candy, between tears.” O, The Oprah Magazine

“Funny and moving but never predictable.” USA Today (four stars)

“Masterful . . . a heartbreaker in the best sense . . . Me Before You is achingly hard to read at moments, and yet such a joy.” New York Daily News

Praise for One Plus One:

“Safety advisory: If you’re planning to read Jojo Moyes’s One Plus One on 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(four stars)

“Bridget Jones meets Little Miss Sunshine in this witty British romp from bestseller Moyes. . . . Wryly romantic and surprisingly suspenseful.” People

“Fans of the 2006 summer sleeper hit Little Miss Sunshine will 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.” Entertainment Weekly(A-)

“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

Format: Paperback
Jojo Moyes has produced a superb piece of modern fiction in Silver Bay. Set mostly in Australia, with some action taking place in London, UK, the story deals with the effects of threatened development on the tranquil eponymous location of the title. But it is the relationships and interactions of the protagonists that drive this story of tragedy, romance, coming of age and redemption.

Presented in 3 parts, with a short prologue and epilogue, Jojo uses first person narration by five of the major characters, four female and one male, to explore emotional, motivational, mental and spiritual aspects of her protagonists. Her research has clearly been thorough and the novel displays the author's deep knowledge of the subjects she uses for theme and background. The book starts slowly but builds relentlessly until the denouement is reached in a way unflagged and unexpected.

This was a book I would have read at one sitting, had I been able. As it is, my life being a little hectic at present, I was obliged to fit in reading between many other commitments. It's testament to the quality of the writing and storytelling that I found myself looking forward to my occasional bus journeys, as they are opportunities to read. Normally I dislike this necessary part of my working day, but I was eager to get on that bus and have the chance to read. In fact, had I not finished the book shortly before the end of my journey, I suspect I'd have missed my stop.

Jojo has drawn her characters with skill, care, and love. This is appropriate, since the love stories that run through the narrative form a major thread of the tale. Each passage is in the voice of the chosen character and the author manages to make each unique and totally credible.

For me Silver Bay was a book I needed to read in long sittings. I started reading at the tail end of last week and was only able to enjoy a chapter here and there. I was not immediately drawn in. I knew something was up with Liza and I needed to know what that something was but it was talking too long to get there. It wasn’t until Sunday when I had a real chance to sit and read without interruption. I got about half way through and knew I had to finish reading that night. Which I did!

I thought Liza’s daughter Hannah was adorable, and I was rooting for her to be given the freedom she deserved. But then I found out why Liza needed to protect her and I was just in awe at how this little girl seemed relatively unaffected by what happened, at least on the outside. I felt little empathy for Mike Dormer, I mean he catapulted himself right into the middle of what was right and what was wrong. He needed to fix his mistakes and keep this family safe.

I thought Silver Bay was a beautiful location for the story. Although a fictional place I am told that there are many places just like that in Australia. I really enjoyed reading about the whale migration and how the local residents would do anything to protect them and to keep them coming back after hundreds of years.

I shed a few tears at the end when all the loose ends in the story were tied up.

I would’ve liked to read more about some of the secondary characters, specifically some of the other whale watchers. Like how they ended up in Silver Bay, and their thoughts about the potential resort being built. This stuff didn’t just affect Liza and her family, but also the community.

I received a copy of this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Another absolute must read by Jojo Moyes, author of ME BEFORE YOU and many other excellent novels.

From the moment you begin this novel, the multiple characters narrating SILVER BAY will pull you into their story and keep you guessing. They'll fill your mind with images of Silver Bay, they'll teach you that people can be transformed, and they'll make you long for an Australian vacation to watch the magnificent whales and dolphins in the secluded bay with a rundown hotel. You may even be able to get a taste of an ice-cold beer and smell the salty air.

This is so much more than a love story. There are multi-dementions and angles to the story. There are multi-generations that give their perspectives, each one adding their pieces to the whole for a richer, more interesting tale.

I can't even begin to sing the praises of Jojo Moyes and her incredible storytelling talent. It's bloody brilliant. Prepare to have a few kleenexes on hand. Prepare to fall in love with Mike and Liza, and Aunt Kathleen and Nino, and even the dog Milly. Most of all, eleven-year-old Hannah will grab ahold of your heart and keep you wondering about her life, not as it is now, but what it will be ten years from now. If you're like me, you'll want to think about her and her family and friends and Silver Bay and the future.

There is NOTHING Jojo Moyes writes that I can't or won't rave about to anyone who'll listen. You might as well put all her books on your to-read list, that is, if you haven't done so already!

The story centers around a quaint beach town and a run-down hotel. You meet Liza and her daughter, then enters a big city developer, sprinkle in some family secrets, and toss in a cast of various characters add to that a sub-line about whales and dolphins and a book is born.

To me this could have been a super great read, especially coming from this author, but this book is just ok, nothing that will keep you up at night, nothing that will keep you turning pages, it's what I refer to as a "chick lit beach read". As you read it, you know how it will end, you just don't know which road it will take to get you there. JoJo Moyes can put out some riveting books but this is not one of them, this again seems to me to be one of those "meet the deadline" types of book.

If you're looking for a book that won't stop you from doing other things, that won't keep you up at night, that won't make want to stop everything and read then this is the book for you. It's not bad but it is bland, the characters are forgettable, story line predicable the only way I can help you understand is to equate it to a Life Time movie, once you've seen one, then the next one is a cookie-cutter with different characters and locations.
