In 5 Reasons to Leave a Lover, author Carolyn Moncel offers up a fresh batch of stories based on love and loss. As singer/songwriter, Paul Simon so eloquently suggested in a famous song from the 1970s, there are many ways to leave a lover. However, Moncel’s characters demonstrate that the reasons for leaving in the first place are quite finite. Encounters in Paris` Ellery and Julien Roulet return, picking up their lives where the short story, “Pandora`s Box Revisited,” ends. This time the Roulets are involved in a love triangle, and along with two other couples, must explore how love relationships are affected and splinter due to abuse, ambivalence, deception, cheating and death. This bittersweet collection of tales proves that some breakups are necessary; while others are voluntary; and still others are simply destined and beyond anyone’s control.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

While the writing is emotionally engaging, the author’s real strength is in her character development, giving each character a unique personality that transcends across all cultures. I recommend this book to women readers who enjoy stories of the heart and relationships.


Ms. Moncel reveals life as it really is – complete with imperfections and infidelity. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to do a little soul searching. Your troubles are not your own as her characters reveal. Everyone experiences love lost, but it is how you move forward that matters most.


This collection of short stories was a quick read as each one was intriguing in its own way. I highly recommend this collection to everyone.


I love this author’s ability to write strong characters that pull the readers into each story. This is the second book I have read from Carolyn Moncel and she never fails to give readers an exceptionally well-written book.
