    WHY AM I JUST FINDING OUT ABOUT THIS??

    MORE LOU? HELL YEAH.

    EDIT:

    So, Hallelujah! I finally finished this book, I've been so busy lately and had so little time left for reading but I did it!

    Do I think we needed a third book? Honestly, no. Am I glad we go a third book? ABSOLUTELY.

    Louisa Clark is a character that will probably stay with you forever, I mean Hell, I still think about Me Before You till this day and I never regret going into this series, I love it! I'm always delighted to know about h

    WHY AM I JUST FINDING OUT ABOUT THIS??

    EDIT:

    So, Hallelujah! I finally finished this book, I've been so busy lately and had so little time left for reading but I did it!

    Do I think we needed a third book? Honestly, no. Am I glad we go a third book? ABSOLUTELY.

    Louisa Clark is a character that will probably stay with you forever, I mean Hell, I still think about Me Before You till this day and I never regret going into this series, I love it! I'm always delighted to know about her and her life, it's like going on an adventure to be honest, it's an amazing experience.

    So in this book we learn about the next stage in Louisa's new life, New York. We learn in the second book about her new job as a personal assistant and we get to explore it in this book, so you can imagine how life must be for her, English woman living alone in New York, away from her boyfriend Sam, with no relatives whatsoever except for Nathan who seems to have built a life for himself there so she can't exactly rely on him. The story follows her life there as an immigrant struggling to meet ends for her employer while also trying to cope with the changes in her life following Will's words;

    Following a new series of events Lou finds herself facing other challenges trying to make something out of herself and not just the plain Louisa Clark from Stortfold.

    I loved that part, especially. It was nice seeing her embracing her real identity and staying true to herself. What's even more exciting was seeing Sam stands by her side all this time, I was obsessed with the letters!

    Overall, I think this book was really a nice addition and it makes up for the second book, I was hooked from the start and it gave Lou's story a nice closure and the happy ending she totally DESERVES!

    I enjoyed a lot reading this book, since after three novels (counting this one), Louisa Clark, is already a literary character that it’s always a wonderful experience to read about.

    Louisa Clark goes to her next phase in her life, this time leaving her native England to go to work at New York. She has to leave her family, her friends and her boyfriend, Ambulance Sam, only Nathan is with her, since it was him who helped her

    I enjoyed a lot reading this book, since after three novels (counting this one), Louisa Clark, is already a literary character that it’s always a wonderful experience to read about.

    Louisa Clark goes to her next phase in her life, this time leaving her native England to go to work at New York. She has to leave her family, her friends and her boyfriend, Ambulance Sam, only Nathan is with her, since it was him who helped her to get the job as personal assistant of the new wife of a very important and rich man, living at the famous Fifth Avenue, but you will get to know several places around the city that never sleeps, becoming another resident there as well as Lou.

    Jojo’s narrative which turn into the very voice and thoughts of Louisa, take us to New York in a way that you can watch each building, you can feel each street, you can taste each weather.

    Something that I love about Jojo Moyes’ books (at least Louisa Clark’s saga) that you learn empathy (as the chosen quote clearly indicates), since you never has to rush to conclusions about the people that you meet, the same as in the first book and the second one too, characters that maybe get your nerves, you need to be patient, since you never know how relevant an unexpected character can be for the fate of Louisa Clark,…

    …the same as our own lives.

    You have to be true to yourself, don’t look for doing bad things on purpose to others, never look for revenge, keep your soul and heart clean, and don’t look for unnecesary enemies, since life will give you enough unavoidable foes, for “helping” to add others to the list, even since life doesn’t help you giving people “white hats” or “black hats”, life isn't like an old western movie where isn't that hard to know who is good or bad out there.

    There are people that it’s easy to know that can be a valuable friendship for you, but others won’t be so easy to recognize…

    …be cautious, think before talk, and always do what you think is right.

    Lou keeps trying her best to do her tasks in the best possible way, and certainly she will put to test when duty and righteousness, will become one single mess, not making easy to know how to act at certain times.

    Also, Lou will have to be strong about her own personality and the little things that made her like what truly is and don’t betray herself. Only Louisa Clark can be Louisa Clark and the literary world would be a sad place without her. In the same way, only you can be you in our world, so don’t make changes in your very foundation of what makes you, you.

    Moreover, beside to learn about the new life of Lou in New York, you’ll be able to learn about the Clark family and the Traynors too. After three books (counting this one), they’re like part of our own family too, since it has been quite a journey since we meet for the first time to Lou when she was fired from the coffee shop, never imagining all the stuff that she’ll do from then on and all the incredible people that will get into Lou’s life.

    For better or worse, always modeling into unexpected levels the life of our Lou.

    Thank you, Jojo, for giving us once again Lou and being able to walk side-by-side with her for a third time.

    Two books post game-changer and I have to wonder, would

    follow-up to

    be impressive enough to rival the thought-provoking circumstances or raw emotion Louisa and Will's story evoked from the masses? At this point, I think not. The takeaway here—some things should be left to stand on their own.

    Two books post game-changer and I have to wonder, would

    follow-up to

    be impressive enough to rival the thought-provoking circumstances or raw emotion Louisa and Will's story evoked from the masses? At this point, I think not. The takeaway here—some things should be left to stand on their own.

    Why

    felt compelled to take a story as emotionally charged as

    and drag it out to a trilogy, I’ll never understand. Was it a burning desire on her part to continue Louisa’s story that led to

    (book 2) or more of an opportunity to exploit the success of

    ? Is it possible

    (book 3) was viewed as a chance to right all of the squandered opportunities we suffered through in

    or again, more of a sales play? Either way, I won’t deny, this third installment was a much more enjoyable read than the prior. Although, arguably,

    .

    Regardless of the fact that

    is a book I’ve recommended more than any other, I hesitated to commit to

    and for good reason. Within the 370 pages of

    ,

    created a scenario that worked against it’s predecessor, tainting the memory of one of the most pivotal and adored characters. The crutch she rested on felt cheap, overused and left me second-guessing my feelings for the original story. Let me tell you, that’s a wretched place to be. Not to mention, Lou’s storyline failed to advance enough to even justify the sequel, making

    feel like little more than a throwaway.

    Third

    book is a charm? Well, sort of.

    is more in line with what I initially envisioned for a continuation of Lou's story, but

    . With this final installment (

    ),

    captures that version of Lou readers initially fell for—the quirky clothes horse who stood out in a crowd for simply being

    —and delivers a journey of self discovery.

    This story lacks a bit in the emotional depth department, specifically with regards to the relationships and people Lou surrounds herself with, but it was entertaining enough to keep me engaged. What I didn't like: a few of the storylines felt unresolved (Agnes), quite a few characters felt inconsistent (Josh, Sam and Mrs. De Witt) and the messages along the way were a bit muddled.

    If you're even remotely considering this one, I would say, go for it. Even if for nothing other than the times Lou reminisces about Will. The snippets of Will throughout—letters written to his mother from his own time in New York and his anecdotes about life that pop up when Lou needs them most—acted as a salve of sorts, healing some of my past disappointments and reigniting those feelings I experienced with their unforgettable beginning.

    Regardless of the fact that this go round with Lou was a much more positive experience than the last, I feel strongly that

    should be the final goodbye to the eccentric

    New Yorker. Let's just hope

    and her publisher agree.

    "I think at some point, dear, you're going to have to work out who Louisa Clark is."

    I don't think there needed to be a trilogy. I really don't. Let me start by saying I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Me Before you. It literally blew me away. I read it twice and have seen the movie three times. I think it is Moyes Swan song. It doesn't get any better than that - which is why the two books which followed could not live up to their predecessor.

    In this book we see our much-loved Louisa Clarke moving to New Yor

    "I think at some point, dear, you're going to have to work out who Louisa Clark is."

    I don't think there needed to be a trilogy. I really don't. Let me start by saying I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Me Before you. It literally blew me away. I read it twice and have seen the movie three times. I think it is Moyes Swan song. It doesn't get any better than that - which is why the two books which followed could not live up to their predecessor.

    In this book we see our much-loved Louisa Clarke moving to New York City to be the "assistant" to a wealthy young socialite. A socialite who is not much liked by others in her social circles as her husband was once married to their friend. A friend he divorced to marry his much younger massage therapist. Before she is even over her jet lag, Louisa is running in central park, shopping and attending fancy social events. She is thrown into a glamorous life one that is much different from the life she lived in England with her paramedic boyfriend, Sam.

    While out and about she meets a man named Josh Ryan who bears a striking resemblance to someone from her past. They form a friendship while Louisa pines for Sam and throws herself into the NYC high society social circle. Louisa continues to be quirky and finds herself in various situations both comedic and sad. There will be misunderstandings, new friends, broken hearts, miscommunication, deceit and mayhem.

    In this book, Louisa takes Will's advice from Me Before you: “You only get one life. It's actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.” She does take chances and tries to be her own person but sadly, it didn't really pay off for me in this book. It was a solid 3-star book for me. I hoped it would be better. I can't fault he writing, the writing is good but the story lagged in places for me. Again, I think she should have left well enough alone. Good not great.

    Thank you to Penguin Group Viking and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
