Still Me - Jojo Moyes (2018)


In this third instalment in the Me Before You series, Lou has arrived in New York to work for a rich Manhattan couple. She is to be the personal assistant to the highly strung second wife, Agnes, a former masseuse from Poland who is ostracised by the social set. Even though Lou quickly finds her feet in New York, she misses her boyfriend, paramedic Sam, who has remained in England. Then she meets a guy who reminds her of someone special.
This sees the return of Moyes' most beloved and quirky character with her bumblebee-striped tights. Lou faces many tests of character as she feels split between her new life and the one she has left behind. It didn't have the same impact on me as the previous two novels but it was still a lovely sentimental read. 7/10
