Book Review: Still Me
The minute I saw that JoJo Moyes was releasing a third Louisa Clark novel, I knew I had to read it ASAP and if you watched my unboxing on my IG Stories, you’ll have seen how excited I was. I picked this up last Friday and I had finished it by Sunday afternoon. Because I just couldn’t put it down. Here’s the official blurb:
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 reconcile a heart that lives in two places?
Funny, romantic, and poignant, Still Me follows Lou as she navigates how to stay true to herself, while pushing to live boldly in her brave new world.
I wept reading Me Before You and After You, so I honestly expected the same of Still Me, but I didn’t. Instead, I laughed, I cheered and I grinned like a Cheshire Cat. I don’t want to include any spoilers in this review but I will tell you now, I need JoJo to write a fourth novel because I have to know what happens next to Lou (and Sam). I’m going to say it now – it is going to be hard for any book to top this one for the rest of the year. That’s how much I loved it.
JoJo is an outstanding writer. I was hooked from the first sentence and reading about Lou is like reading about an old friend – because, at this point, that’s exactly what she is. As someone who has spent most of the last year figuring out how to be okay with herself, this book really resonated with me. Thank you JoJo for bringing Lou back to us again, I will never tire of her story.
Have you read Still Me? What about Me Before You and After You? What did you think? Few people can put me through the emotional rollercoaster that JoJo manages to do every time, but I adore her.
