I liked this one much better than the first. Great characters, fast easy read, with quirky Englishness galore.

SummaryAdd a Summary
The follow-up to the hit. The story of what happened to Lou in the first couple years following Will's death.
Louisa Clark is living in London 18 months after Will Trayner passes and is still grieving. He changed her life but when she slips from the roof of her building (falling 2 of the 5 stories), Louisa is even more reserved to work and coming home to an empty flat. She then meets Will's daughter, Lily, a sixteen year old girl who never met Will but is anxious to learn about him. It brings pains for Louisa to talk to Lily about Will and yet Lily is slowly drawing Louisa out, into life again!
Although not as good as Me Before You, Moyes' novel After You was very good. It continues the story of Louisa Clark two years after Will's death. She has a difficult time adjusting to her current life/world, but she realizes she has grown because of her life with Will and now she fears loving too much and losing that love. . . once again. But, by joining a recovery group, ironically, she discovers she is fine and loves again.

[New love interest for Louisa, maybe?]
"Who is this?" I said, though I knew immediately who it was. "Sam. Ambulance Sam. I was just passing by on the way home from work, and I just... Well, you left in such a hurry the other night, I thought I'd make sure you were okay." "A fortnight later? I could have been eaten by cats by now." "I'm guessing you weren't." "I don't have a cat." A short silence. "But I'm fine, Ambulance Sam. Thanks." "Great...That's good to hear." I shifted, so I could see him through the grainy black and white of the little entry video screen. He was wearing a biker jacket instead of his paramedics uniform, and had one hand resting against the wall. He took his hand off the wall and turned to face the road. I saw him let out a breath, and that small motion prompted me to speak. "So...what are you up to?"-excerpt, After You
