Honeymoon In Paris By Jojo Moyes

JoJo Moyes

Honeymoon In Paris

Look at this delicious cover! The U.S. cover is different and I will show it later in this posting. HONEYMOON IN PARIS is available now in e-book form only.

JoJo Moyes is one of my favorite authors. After reading ME BEFORE YOU by Moyes, I feel she is an amazing talent. I would read anything she pens, at this point.

Having said all the above, I will say that this is a novella, a teaser for her upcoming novel, THE GIRL HE LEFT BEHIND, which will be on sale here in the U.S. in August. Two couples are featured in this novella. Their  lives are a hundred years apart, starting in the Belle Epoque era in Paris. Their stories are alike and timeless. I was instantly drawn into both stories. And that doesn’t happen all that often. I think you will be too.

Included in the novella HONEYMOON IN PARIS is the first chapter of THE GIRL HE LEFT BEHIND and ME BEFORE YOU. You will want to read them all.

And this is the so-so U.S. cover for the same amazing book. I have to say I favor the first cover. But since it is an e-book it is not as important for me.

Once again the very generous publishing people at Viking have given me the opportunity for an early read. Thanks so much.

Eve In Hollywood By Amor Towles

Amor Towles

novella

EVE IN HOLLYWOOD by Amor Towles is a continuance of the wildly popular RULES OF CIVILITY. It is only available in e-book form.  It’s short and to the point, but, still is written in the same undeniably beautiful prose Towles has become famous for.

When Towles finished writing RULES OF CIVILITY he couldn’t quite get used to the fact that he had left one of his main characters hanging. Wanting to know where Eve would end up on her travels, he began writing this novella. How lucky are we that he did.

Towles has Eve on a train heading to Chicago when this story opens. She meets a man on the train who is going to live with his son after dealing with the death of his wife. Quickly, you’ll find that both these people are on the verge of great change in their lives.

The tone is set early on for the sophistication of this story. But what is the story really about? That’s what we want to know. What is Eve up to?

I am seeing more of these novellas, almost teasers, being released in e-book form only. They are an inexpensive way to perpetuate the writing of great authors. Take advantage now of this great offer. $2.99 is all it costs to be in the midst of the writing of a great author one more time.

The nice people at Penguin sent me a link to the e-galley. Thanks again, guys.
