Lou Clark is back in the ALL NEW Jojo Moyes novel Still Me, follow-up to the Number One international bestsellers Me Before You and After You. PRE ORDER YOUR COPY NOW . . .

Lou Clark knows too many things . . .

She knows how many miles lie between her new home in New York and her new boyfriend Sam in London.

She knows her employer is a good man and she knows his wife is keeping a secret from him.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to meet someone who’s going to turn her whole life upside down.

Because Josh will remind her so much of a man she used to know that it’ll hurt.

Lou won’t know what to do next, but she knows that whatever she chooses is going to change everything.

Review ~ #FirstChapter By Kimberly Livingston 

Gah!

I realize that one should never start a blog with “Gah!” (unless one’s name is Bridget), but I offered to read the first chapter of Jojo Moyes much awaited Still You and now that I’ve read it I’m already completely hooked, and I have to wait until the end of January to read the rest? What was I thinking? I can go back and read the first chapter over and over,  but I don’t think that will cut it.

My review last summer of After You, the second book in the Me Before You trilogy, mentioned that Louisa Clark hadn’t quite found herself the way Will Traynor would have liked her too. Will – Lou still needs you! She now has travelled across the Atlantic Ocean to the Big Apple to  “say yes” to new experiences. An early caution of “be careful what you say yes to” possibly foreshadows that Lou’s travels may not go the way she plans. Of course, this is Lou we are talking about so the reader knows they rarely do!

The setting is a familiar one to me, being an American and living near New York City as a kid. It is fun to picture unconfident, clumsy, British Louisa navigating both the city and circumstances she finds herself in. This includes a new cast of characters and, happily, the return of Nathan, her previous tie to Will.

Did I mention I still miss Will?

I will impatiently wait for the release of the rest of the novel and hope that the Louisa Will fell in love with will re-emerge. I miss that Louisa too.

Thank you Ms. Moyes for the opportunity to preview this early edition proof chapter. Thank you also for writing Lou and Will into the world.
