Although I've heard many great things about the author, The One Plus One was the first JoJo Moyes book I've read so I wasn't sure what to expect. So I was pleasantly surprised when I was immediately drawn into the story. Jess' family has its problems, but they stick together despite everything that is thrown at them and I really warmed to them. I thought JoJo's writing was warm, witty and heartfelt and I enjoyed every single moment of the book, so much so that I felt a bit lost when it was all over.
