Still Me: A Novel
This is the last book in the Me Before You trilogy, although it can be read as a standalone, as I read it. Louisa Clark makes the move from England to New York, where she becomes an assistant to a wealthy second wife of an important businessman. As she becomes accustomed to the New York elite, she tries to keep her long distance relationship alive with Sam, the gentle paramedic she left behind in England. Louisa learns that friendship with the ultra-rich isn’t necessarily as cut and dry as one might think. She finds herself even as she helps her employers find out what appointments they need to keep.
This beautifully written book is a page-turner! Although it’s 388 pages, it’s the type of book you don’t want to put down until you’ve found out how everything is resolved. The characters are quirky and interesting, and Louisa is an especially lovable protagonist. Even without reading the first two books, this was a joy to read. (Although I loved her character so much that I had to go right back and read the others just to see exactly what had happened to her before.) A lovely and satisfying conclusion to an extremely popular series.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
