Review: Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Still Me

Publisher: Viking
Pages: 400
Format: book

Goodreads:  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 is thrown into the world of the superrich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world. 

Before she knows what's happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets--not all her own--that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places? 

Kritters Thoughts:  The third installment in this series and although this book could be somewhat self contained, I absolutely suggest starting at book one - Me Before You.  Below, I will talk about the book which could be spoilerie if you haven't read book one or two, so you have been warned!

There are some controversies over the first book, but with book two and three, they are completely sweet romantic comedies, perfect for a beach bag or a rainy weekend!

Still Me takes Louisa Clark to New York City where she will care for a woman in a wealthy family.  She goes to the city with little details and is thrust into New York City elite.  This seems to be a perfect job for her, but you know with previous books with Louisa that hijinks must ensue!

I loved the ups and downs of the book.  It was a sweet ride with a character that I completely love.  I will admit that I saw the movie after reading the first book and I will now always picture Louisa Clark as the actress who plays her in that movie and I am fine with that.  I can picture her doing all these crazy things in New York and in the fancy and quirky clothes that she is known for.  

I wonder if this is the end of Louisa Clark, I wouldn't mind one more after this one to maybe take her beyond where this story concludes.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
