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.

After You (Me Before You, #2) by JoJo Moyes picks up approximately two years after Me Before You (Me Before You #1) ended. After Louisa Clark spent time abroad, she moves back to England and bought a flat in London.

After recovering at her parents house, Louisa returns back to her flat in London and finds the surprise of her life.

I loved the fact that it largely showed how Louisa was struggling with Will's death and was having trouble living life to its fullest.
