Title: Still Me
Series: Me Before You #3
Author: Jojo Moyes
Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life.
As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure-filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you find the courage to follow your heart–wherever that may lead?
I love Louisa Clark.
Can I just start off by saying that. I love her as a character, as a woman and as a weirdo with a unique sense of style.
Still Me is the third and, I believe, final book in the Me Before You series, that left hearts broken and faces tearstained with Louisa and Will’s whirlwind of a lovestory.
It’s been a few years since I read the sequel, After You, but I remembered the key moments of the story, so I wasn’t totally hooked off from the start and it was easy to catch up with what had happened (which we are also told throughout the story in the traditional “previously on” way).
We are now in New York following Louisa in her new position as an employee for an über wealthy couple.
The story itself was easy to follow and sometimes also easy to predict, but it had its small twists that I enjoyed being surprised by. Then again, it’s not difficult to read a contemporary romance novel and not correctly predict most of the things that’ll happen. I gladly welcome more shockingly, twisted romance novels.
Despite being predictable, I devoured this book and I loved it. I have loved following Louisa on her journey and watching her grow as a person through terrible and rough, but also heartfelt and romantic times.
All in all, Still Me is a lovely and cutesy read that is quick and leaves you with a warmer heart.
Do I recommend this book?
Yes, if you enjoyed the first two I do suggest reading this to finish the story.
