It has been a little quite around here. I need to do better but I’m back with y’alls favorite, a book review. So late on this
Synopsis from goodreads.com

It took me forever to finish this book. Unlike the other Jojo Moyes books, I wasn’t pressed to finish it. A part of me wishes that she would have left us with Me Before You and avoided the other 2 books, but another part of me love following Louisa through her journey.
I think Jojo Moyes does a good job of recapturing the previous books for people who may not have read it. We are made to remember Louisa loss, the gift Will gave her, her meeting with Sam, Will’s daughter, etc… So I enjoyed that bit of the book.
I didn’t really LOVE the book but I enjoyed it for the most part. It felt like I was catching up with an old friend and she was just telling me about her life in a new city. I liked how Lou throughout the years branched out of her small world little by little and landed in the Big Apple. What?! I really loved how Lou regardless of what was going to happen to her kept Agnes’ secret but that is another thing I’ve always hated about Lou, she is made to appear to be some what of push over. Everyone come into her life and tries to dictate it, either aggressively or passively. The people that are meant to love her, love her half-assedly. (issa word) I was so frustrated with Sam and his selfishness.
Towards the end of the book, it appears that Lou finds herself and likes who she is. She tried to fit in the entire time and be everything for everyone but eventually she had to choose herself. It was also a good reminder on being kind. Her kindness towards people eventually paid off.
I would give this book 3 stars
