"Please forgive me" is Hill's absolutely best book so far, and one can only ask oneself where this authorship is going to end.
This book has got everything. Not only one, but three, parallell and delightfully intricate stories. A broad specter of different and colourful characters - and as always, the most unbelievable twists and turns. The writing flows easily from the author's extremely light pen and incredible imagination. From Dublin to San Francisco - a side trip to Dallas, Texas - and also a couple of generations back and forth in time.
The main story is about Leonie, who brokenhearted flees Dublin and Ireland and settles in San Francisco where she gets a job in a flower shop. Her nabour Alex, who soon becomes a great friend, brings her own story and in her apartment Leonie finds a box with old unopened letters from where another story unfolds.
The book is not only first class entertainment but the touching yet realistic telling of three different - or not so different - love stories, set in different places and times.
Impossible to put down, it simply cannot be done better.
For me there is nobody that writes with such inspiration and will forever recommend her books wholeheartedly
Thanks again Melissa - can't wait for the next
I really enjoyed this book, as I have all Melissa Hill's others.
Please Forgive Me is a rather clever novel, with some oustanding twists and turns. I love it when people foreign to America write about living in America as the descriptions are always fantastic. Leonie runs away to San Francisco (California) and the descriptions are out of this world. Melissa really captures the essence of San Francisco and I'm curious to visit there one day. I'd love to see the Golden Gate bridge in person.
The plot for Please Forgive Me is tightly bound and I'd say the main plot was Leonie's search for Nathan and Helena so she could try and re-unite the couple and to also give back the letters she finds. It throws up numerous twists and just when I thought I had it sussed Melissa went and proved me completely wrong. I'd hate her for it, but it's what she does! The whole thing makes for an interesting read and I wasn't disappointed with its conclusion. Another storyline is exactly why Leonie left Dublin for San Francisco. We're given tidbits throughout the book to tide us over and the story is slowly unravelled. For me, that is what Melissa does best, revealing the plot slowly and keeping us guessing just what it was that drove Leonie to flee so far away. It was a suitably satisfying reason and I had my mouth open in shock when all was revealed.Read more ›

To be honest, I bought this when I went through a "romance novel" phase, and skim read it. The story isn't memorable, and I've now passed it on to someone else.Published 20 months ago by Leanne
