American audiences have fallen in love with Jojo Moyes. Ever since she debuted stateside, she has captivated fans and reviewers alike, and hit the New York Times best-seller list with the word-of-mouth sensation, Me Before You. Now, with One Plus One, she's written another contemporary opposites-attract love story that reads like a modern-day Two for the Road.
Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math-whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can't afford to pay for. That's Jess' life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess' knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages...maybe ever.
One Plus One is Jojo Moyes at her astounding best. You'll laugh, you'll weep, and when you hear the last page, you'll want to start all over again.

Sometimes I need a book that is just fun to read.
One plus One by JoJo Moyers is in my opinion a very easy read or in my case easy listening. In this book I defiantly liked having .all the different narrators. I think it was the right decision on their part to have someone with a child's voice doing the part of the little girl Tansy and adults doing the adult parts. It took just a couple of minutes to get use to the British accents and I think they all did well.
Ed a wealthy nerd that has gotten into some trouble for unintentional insider trading .He is told to get out of town for a while by his lawyer and he ends up taking a road trip with Jess a single mother, her teenage step son, her 10 year old math wiz daughter Tansy and their great big slobbering dog. They need to get to Scotland for a math competition cause it looks like that is the only way Tansy will ever get into a school that is suited for her high intelligence. Jess seems to be stuck in Murphy's law cause if something can go wrong for her or her kids it does but Jess has such a good attitude about things working out.
JoJo Moyers has a very special talent to write about quirky people The story may be a little predictable but I ended up liking the characters so much that I just wanted the best for them. It is a very nice romantic story about people being right for each other. I am pretty sure that at some point I will listen or read this book again

Sweet story made better by brilliant performances
Would you consider the audio edition of One Plus One to be better than the print version?
I think this audio version was brilliant, probably better than reading the book. Hearing the accents and the inflection in each performance made the story come alive! The characters are so likable and you root for their happiness.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Just when you thought nothing else could go wrong...
