Review: Still Me (Me Before You #3) by Jojo Moyes

35791968 Summary from Goodreads:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes, a new book featuring her iconic heroine of Me Before You and After You, Louisa Clark

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.

My Review:

What I Liked:

Characters.  Moye's always does an amazing job crafting her characters, the old favorites like Louisa, her family, and Sam along with the new ones. She introduced us to a few great and not so great new characters.

Writing Style. As always I loved Moyes writing style, how she is able to infuse her story with details and humor. She was able to do an amazing job making New York come alive, like she did when the setting was in the UK, and show the various aspects of the city.

Ending. I was unsure if I would like the ending (that is why I put off reading it for a few weeks after my reread) but I really enjoyed it. I felt that it brought together all three of the novels and we got to see Clark grow into a great young woman, it was very satisfying! :)

What I Disliked:

Some Plot Elements/Pace. I was not a fan of the way some of the plot played out or was left unresolved in my view. And I felt that the novel went a bit too quickly, I would have liked it if it went longer for some story lines.

I recommend checking out the latest novel in the Louisa Clark tale! It was a fun and well-written contemporary read. But I recommend rereading the whole series! :)

My Rating:

4.5 Stars Out of 5 Stars
