***Warning – contains spoilers for Me Before You and After You, but not for Still Me!
Still Me is the third part in the Me Before You series. I can’t tell you how much I loved that book. It took me by surprise because it’s ‘not my sort of book’. So when I saw that Still Me, was out, I had to read it! I generally have a rule of not buying hardbacks, because they’re not very good value, but I had some book tokens in my bag that I kept forgetting to spend, so decided to splash out.
And I wasn’t disappointed.
Following Will’s advice to live her dreams, Louisa Clark answers a call from her friend Nathan (Will’s former nurse) to go to New York to work as a companion to his client’s wife. With the full support of her new boyfriend, Sam the paramedic, Louisa heads to the Big Apple.
Working for the Gopniks, Louisa experiences a very different way of life, but she also experiences some things that make her uncomfortable. And it can be hard to stay in touch with your boyfriend when you are on different continents and in different time zones.
And then she meets someone who literally takes her breath away. Josh reminds her so much of Will that it hurts.
Can Louisa find happiness in New York? Can she maintain her relationship with Sam? Or should she pack up and head back to Stortfold?
As ever, life doesn’t run entirely smoothly for the fabulous Louisa Clark. There are plenty of twists and turns along the road to happiness. Louisa really is an amazing character and there’s lots of other brilliant supporting characters here too, like Ashok the doorman, Ilaria, the emotional housekeeper and Mrs De Witt, the crazy pug-owner.
If you loved Me Before You, you need to read this book and complete Louisa’s story. And if you haven’t read Me Before You, you need to do that now and work your way through the series!
