Synopsis

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 Thoughts

I lucked out and was reminded that this was out by a youtube video I watched and immediately went to listen to the audiobook. The fact that I finished it within two days despite finding out so late on the first day should say something on it’s own. While the first book is still my favorite of the 3 books, I think this comes in at a solid second. I did enjoy the second book but this one I feel like we see a lot more growth and purpose.

We get to see Lou navigate this whole new world, she’s not only starting a new job but it’s a job across the country. She’s learning how to be so far from her family and navigate a long distance relationship. She’s having to build new friendships and I feel like we really get to see her develop into this full person.  I won’t go any further then that for obvious reasons.

I also need to say that the narrator for this book is amazing, I’m going to be looking to see what other books she’s done because the book really came to life, which is of course a great part to Jojo Moyes and her writing but also paired with a wonderful narrator. I’ve had  plenty of books I’ve loved to read that I couldn’t stand the audio version.

Did any of you read this book? What were your thoughts? If I want to read any of her other books, which should I pick up next?
