One of my favorite author's new books was a disappointment

One Plus One: A Novel

One Plus One

By: Jojo Moyes

Genre: Adult Chick lit

Pages: 384

Published: 2014

Read: February

2.5 out of 5

This is the fourth Moyes' book I have read and one of the aspects I love about Moyes is her ability to write completely different novels and cross several genres. This is the first one of hers I read that is considered Chick Lit.  The other books I read made me quickly become a huge fan of Moyes. This book did nothing for me. There was no substance, very predictable and even the writing did not seem as good. The characters were one-dimensional and bland. There were no shocking twists as in her other novels. I am very glad I read some of her other books first or I never would read her again. I am not a huge fan of chick lit, but have read a few that were much better than this one. However since I really enjoyed Moyes' other novels I read I will probably give her a try with future books.
