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.

Oh, it’s so nice to see you again Louisa Clark! I’ve missed you. I haven’t realised how much until I picked up this book and started to read. I don’t know if it’s this easy flowing and comforting writing style of Jojo Moyes or crazy life of Louisa Clark but both work so well hand in hand and just take your for a real journey that will get you totally emotionally invested in her life and experiences.

My favourite book out of three and not only because it takes place in my favourite place in the world. It’s a new life and fresh start for Lou, lot of new troubles (which are kind of normal when it comes to her) and new ways of rediscovering herself and finding true Louisa Clark after years of ‘following’ someone else’s dreams and hiding in the background. New York being city of dreams and opportunities but you need to run head on and grab them, be brave and don’t hesitate. It’s not as straight forward but it can be worth it and Lou realised that even if things don’t go and end up the way she wanted, there are ways to make it work. And sometimes being alone and dealing with everything on her own, will teach her more than she could learn until now.

This book just closed Lou’s story so nicely and even if I wasn’t sure if the third book was needed, after I read it, I realised it was really really important.

I don’t know if there will be a book four or this is it, but I know that either way it will be ok. I love Louisa Clark and I know I could read about her forever but I’m also pleased to know, she is happy and safe for now. So it was so nice to meet you Lou and whatever you do, be yourself!
