Monday Moyes (again) - After You

 I enjoyed Me Before You and immediately launched into the sequel After You by Jojo Moyes. 

Louisa Clark is back and  she's  a mess after her six months with Will Traynor and his subsequent death choice hit her hard. She's working  in  the crappy airport bar and just slogging along. Then a horrific accident sends her  back home to recover and heal. Her mind and heart still  won't catch up to her body. 

She joins a support group, meets the paramedic that saved her, and slowly climbs back  to the land of the living. Plus, a figure from Will's past appears.  Quite the surprise and a lot  to deal with, but it also gets Louisa focused on more than herself. 

back cover How do you move on after the losing  the  person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?

Sometimes sequels are too much of a rehash, but After You is quite fresh. Jojo Moyes has a solid character in Lou and as a reader you are rooting for her all the way. Funny, romantic, poignant - I enjoyed this book and I'm moving on to the final in the trilogy.
