It's only been a few weeks since I first discovered Melissa Hill and since then I have read all her books. I'm amazed and delighted. Not only has a new name been added to my list of top favourite authors, but I have also had very little sleep lately.

"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.

Enjoy!

Whilst all Melissa's books are totally absorbing and brilliant this one is without a doubt her best.Totally compelling to the end and leaves you feeling frustrated you've finished it but marvelling through the twists and turns to the finish
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

Melissa Hill is one of my favourite authors and have read nearer every single one of her books. I look forward to her the most out of all the authors I like. I read a lot but I manage to finish her books in two sittings which if I didn't have an exam to study for would've been finished in one sitting. I can't wait till her next one :)

Is it raining out? Do you have some time to put your feet up with a cup of tea? Then I suggest you pick up this book as well. It makes you smile but at the same time you can't quite work out what's going to happen.
I really enjoyed this book, as I have all Melissa Hill's others.

My second Melissa Hill book and I enjoyed it almost as much as the first. She is a great storycrafter with a few twists in the tale. This is the story of Leonie Hayes who is running away from Dublin to Los Angeles, to escape some great tragedy that has taken place in her life that we don’t know about - yet. This is only revealed slowly and through a number of flashbacks. Told in the third person, we can see more freedom in the way the story is told as it is not limited to one individual’s viewpoint. She arrives with no job to go to and nowhere to live (at this point I wondered where the money came from) but she quickly finds a flat in a Victorian property with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, and a job in a florist’s that she finds out about by accident when taking a walk around the neighbourhood. Very lucky! Cleaning the flat she finds a box of letters in the wardrobe all written to someone called Helena who lived in the house once upon a time. Curiosity gets the better of her and she opens one to find it is from someone called Nathan asking Helena to forgive him. We have also met Alex, who is a TV producer, and find that she too has a secret. We also learn that she lives in an apartment in the same house as Leonie and they become friends. Leonie is determined to find out about Nathan and Helena and enlists Alex in her quest to find them. This opens up the story so that we find out more about both girls and in particular Leonie’s story. Alex has just begun going out with a doctor called Jon and seems reluctant, or scared, to take the relationship to another level. We have to be patient to find out why.Read more ›

Leonie has left her native Dublin and has fled to San Francisco. Moving into a beautiful apartment, Leonie happens upon a bunch of unopened letters. After accidentally opening one, Leonie sees that each letter ends `Please forgive me. Nathan' and is instantly intrigued. She enlists the help of her neighbour Alex and the two begin the search for the elusive Nathan as well as Helena, who all of the letters are for. Just what did Nathan do that was so bad he required forgiveness?

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.
