From Goodreads:
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 steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life. 

As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure-filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home. 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?

Funny, romantic, and poignant, Still Me follows Lou as she navigates how to stay true to herself, while pushing to live boldly in her brave new world.

I just love reading about Lou. Still Me was delightful, yet sad, similar to the other books in the series. Still Me had strong characters, and I divided them up into characters that I DID like (Lou, Paramedic Sam, Ashok and his family, Mrs. De Witt, the ladies that own the fashion store) and characters that I did NOT like (Agnes, Leonard, Joshua, Sam’s Paramedic Partner). All of them together made for a wonderful conclusion to Lou’s story, but I still wish that there would be more books.
