"Heartbreak was a luxury too costly for a single parent."

One Plus OneOne Plus One by Jojo Moyes

This is my favourite Jojo Moyes book to date.  This quirky family dramedy made me laugh, cry (as per usual with a Jojo Moyes book), and cheer for these characters.  The perfect read for rainy afternoons, lounging on the beach, or just wanting to escape with a good book.  For fans of the film Little Miss Sunshine.

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's life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shinning-armor offers to rescue them.  Only Jess's 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.
