Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes

This collection by best-selling author Moyes features a novella and eight short stories that explore the relationships between women and men. In the title story, Nell is excited to spend a weekend in Paris with her boyfriend, Pete, but when he fails to show up, she has to decide whether to be adventurous and enjoy Paris on her own or head back to her predictable life back home. The other stories feature a famous man accused of adultery, a woman who finds that an expensive pair of shoes can really change your day, and a woman who yearns for a midnight blue coat, even though her family can't afford it.  While the book is a quick read, I really enjoyed the glimpses into the characters' lives and situations.
