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 is thrown into the world of the superrich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world. Before she knows what's happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets--not all her own--that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. 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?

Welcome back to one of the most original and memorable heroines in modern fiction, Louisa Clarke! This time her wacky and endearing family along with her boyfriend Sam return, albeit often from afar. In STILL ME Louisa finds herself “across the pond” making a new life in the Big Apple. In this third installment of the series, Lou encounters new characters and confronts new complications. Author Jojo Moyes’ seemingly effortless writing drew me in once again - a perfect summer beach read! I especially enjoyed seeing iconic NYC sites through Lou’s eyes. Will this be the last we see of Louisa Clark? Maybe,… but with the success of this trilogy, I doubt it!

Just like 'Me Before You and 'After You' I loved this book. I really have enjoyed the whole series/trilogy, even more so "Still Me' as it is mostly set in New York. Louisa's character is so likeable. Really hope they make a movie for the second and third book....Can't wait!

I thouroughly enjoyed book three of Jojo Moyes’ You Before Me trilogy. The author chose an interesting setting (New York) to help Louisa Clark find her true self as she teeters between the world of the super rich and the friends she makes who are from th same type of world she came from back in England. Louisa faces great difficulties after she is accused of theft by the Gopnicks and fired on the spot, but she manages to reinvent herself before discovering how she truly feels about Josh and Sam. A quick read.

Endearing. A nice read. If you liked the first two, I say go for it!

Still Me is enjoyable, hugely due to the fact that the female protagonist does not cave in the end, but actually does what she wants to do! Her personal growth is developed nicely, but I found the ending to be flat.

Unfortunately, this was a predictable end to the trilogy. It's very confusing, as Louisa started out as a character with so much potential and pizzaz, and by the end of the series, her life had become one of those "it's who you know, not what you know" and "right place, right time" tropes that you see in most works of fiction. Honestly, I finished reading this one just to help me meet my reading goal for the year. Very disappointing.

Still Me is the third installment of Jojo Moyes' Me Before You series. It chronicles Louisa's life after Will's tragic suicide in Switzerland and her move to the United States. Louisa's struggles to survive in New York City are captured with Moyes' signature humor and heartwarming nature that pervaded her previous work. If you enjoyed the other books in the series, I see no reason why you would not enjoy this one as well. Highly recommended.

Another fantastic book by Jojo Moyes. I love the character, Louisa Clark. Still Me continues Louisa's story in New York. Great book...couldn't put it down!

Still Me is the third book after the successful Me Before You.
This is definitely a better book than the one before Me After You, which in my view seemed a bit rushed and more of a commercial opportunity for the writer than anything.
However, this 3rd book is more endearing and interesting. Moyes did her research and I found it to be realistic and believable.
The ending (don't worry I'm not sharing the details) was a bit "Sleepless in Seattle". It disappointed a well written story, although it leaves the reader with a positive note.
I thought this book was entertaining, but never with the powerful engaging plot of the first one.

I definitely enjoyed this one more compared to the last one. It does help I think if one has had the pleasure of visiting NYC, especially Manhattan.... JoJo really captures the spirit of that metropolis. She is a really good writer, made me care about every character, thumbs' up!
