About Still Me

Lou Clark is back in the BRAND NEW Jojo Moyes novel Still Me, follow-up to the Number One international bestsellers Me Before You and After You.
Lou Clark knows too many things . . .

She knows how many miles lie between her new home in New York and her new boyfriend Sam in London.

She knows her employer is a good man and she knows his wife is keeping a secret from him.
What Lou doesn't know is she's about to meet someone who's going to turn her whole life upside down.

Because Josh will remind her so much of a man she used to know that it'll hurt.
Lou won't know what to do next, but she knows that whatever she chooses is going to change everything.

My review of Still Me

I waa so excited to get my hands on ths limited edition proof copy that I won on NetGalley. I had already read and reviewed the first chapter so couldn't wait to dive on in. Once again I found myself immersed in the wonderful world of Louisa Clarke.

We read the thoughts abd feelings of Louise Clark as she embarks upon her new career in New York. She has left Sam, her paramedic boyfriend behind, but he is one hundred percent behind her decision to live in New York for a year. It is simply something she has to do. As we read through the book we wonder if their relationship can survive due to the drsfance between them.

This book was such a joy to read, not only because of Lou, who now feels like an old friend,  but because the book made me laugh and cry all at once.  The wonderful menagerie of characters also make this book so very special and Louise's personal journey of self discovery that much mote believable.

My heart is still very much with Will, even though this is book three, and I felt a shifting change throughout the book, in that Will waa slowly fading away as Louisa embraced and moved on with this new life.

Still Me is very much a book about Louisa discovering who she really is,  a spark that started with Will. The Louisa we read in this book is still the Louisa that we all know and love, but she does change,  I saw her grow before my very eyes and I loved being a part of this new life with her.

Long dtsrance love forms a huge part of this novel as both Louisa and Sam try to find their way through their relatively new relationship.  Matters become even more complicated when Josh enters Louisa's life. A man who remnds her of her past, a time when spent with Will. Here we see the two sides of Louisa Clarke and doing so nearly broke my heart.  Here we have the young woman who is funny, clever and has her feet firmly planted in reality and who loves Sam, but we also meet the Louisa whose heart, in a way, still belongs to Will. He still has a profound effect upon her life and the decisions that she makes,  and it is this that I found so incredibly beautiful.

Still Me is an absolute joy to read. It's a gorgeous book about love, lost love and findung out who you really are. A perfect read.

Still Me is published by Michael Joseph on 25 Jan. It can be found on Amazon here.
