Today's Read and Giveaway: Still Me by Jojo Moyes

Still Me by Jojo MoyesHave you ever been at a crossroads in your life? When Louisa Clark is given a choice of sticking with the familiar or taking a chance on new experiences, she decides to listen to the voice of a dear, departed friend and accepts a job that will take her far from home.

It was the mustache that reminded me I was no longer in England: a solid gray millipede firmly obstructing the man's upper lip; a Village People mustache, a cowboy mustache, the miniature head of a broom that meant business. You just didn't get that kind of mustache at home. I couldn't tear my eyes from it.
Still Me by Jojo Moyes (Pamela Dorman Books, 2018, opening lines)

Quick Facts
  • Setting: contemporary times; New York City
  • Circumstances: This third Lou Clark book is set in New York, where Lou has been hired as a personal assistant to a woman whose marriage transformed her from Polish massage therapist to Upper East Side uber-rich. As Louisa settles into the rhythm of the 7000-square-foot, two-story "apartment," and learns to mingle with high society, she begins to question her choices.
  • Genre: contemporary women's fiction
  • Themes: family, love, figuring out what's really important
  • Why I want to read this: I really liked the first two Louisa books: Me before You and After You, so of course I need to see what happens next.
  • Extras! For an interview with JoJo Moyes on her new book, including themes and influences, see Chick with Books. For a word from Moyes herself, watch the following short video.

I'm kicking myself now because I didn't read After You as I was worried it would spoil the magic of Me Before You but I really like that excerpt - thanks for sharing Beth

Enjoy! I've read the first two in the series, and a friend just gave me a copy of Still Me, which I hope to get to before too much longer.

This one sounds great! I loved Me Before You, but haven't read the other one. I almost don't want to spoil that great experience with MBY by reading anything else, but your post has me curious!
