Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: Still Me (Me Before You, #3) by Jojo Moyes

Still Me (Me Before You, #3) by Jojo Moyes is the third and final installment in the Me Before You Trilogy. We catch up with Louisa Clark arriving for her new career as a personal assistant to Agnes Gopnik in New York, New York. Living in the servant quarters and having to quickly adapt to this strange, new life of high society, Louisa finds herself desperately missing her boyfriend Sam and her family back in England. When Louisa meets Joshua Ryan at one of the high society events, her life is turned upside down.

What can I say about Still Me (Me Before You, #3)? Jojo Moyes is an amazing writer, and I absolutely was sucked back into Louisa Clark's story. I am glad I had a three day weekend to be able to finish this memorizing novel and am a bit sad that the author mentioned at the very end that she likely won't write any more stories about this character. This makes me sad, but I am guessing the author may be feeling a little burnout with this series. That or she really didn't want to write a series but felt pressured to do. I don't know the reason for sure, but I definitely hope she reconsiders and writes at least one more novel containing Louisa Clark and her family.

One of the biggest things I loved about this book is that Louisa finally starts to come into her own and exploring opportunities that present themselves to her. She finally realizes that she has to live her own life and can't always do what is expected from her. Another thing that I loved was that things aren't always what they seem, especially when it comes to people with sour dispositions. Moyes definitely did a great job of wrapping up Louisa's story in a great way, but as I said before, I still want more!

I definitely don't have very many complaints about the book. The only complaint that I have is really a minor one. At one point in the book, Louisa directly talks to the reader. This seemed a bit odd to me and detracted a bit from the story line. Other than that, I absolutely loved the book. I gave this book four out of five stars.
