Jojo Moyes – Still Me

Ah, Louisa Clark. I’ve missed you. I absolutely loved Me Before You and kinda enjoyed the follow up, After You. Did we need a trilogy? No. Would I have been happy if Moyes had stopped after the first book? Yes. But am I happy to finish reading about Louisa and that she finally got her happy ending? Very much so.

And I was also glad that the happy ending wasn’t exactly what I imagined it would be – Louisa still had plenty of ups and downs to get through before finding where she needs to be.

Starting a new job across the atlantic, Louisa finds herself working for another rich family, but this one way more obnoxious and stuck-up than Will’s. And it seems like Louisa will find herself caught in the middle of family strife – and used as a dispensible pawn in their deceit.

But it turns out that where Louisa found her life-changing moment was the most unexpected place possible – and turns out that where Louisa thought she would fit in was not at all where she would end up.

As I mentioned, I’m happy that we got to read more about Louisa, and this book was a definite improvement on After You, but it could never live up to the romance and emotion of Me Before You – that book is pretty much unmatchable I think.
