Chi non ha mai sognato di saltare sul primo aereo e lasciarsi tutto alle spalle? Leonie, capelli rossi e cuore irlandese, l'ha appena fatto. Se ne è andata da Dublino mandando a monte il matrimonio, ed è volata nell'incantevole e libera San Francisco dei cable car, delle otarie che prendono il sole sul molo, dei cieli azzurrissimi e frizzanti, per provare a iniziare da cap ...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?

Every character pissed me off. Leonie for running away from her problems, the ex for chasing after her instead of giving her space, and when we find out the reason for the argument it doesn't even warrant any kind of emotional response from me - Leonie doesn't need to apologise and the ex has nothing to actually be angry about! An unbelievable waste of time and effort.
The only reason it received 2 stars instead of 1 is because I enjoyed the finding of the letters and the unraveling of

Nunca tinha lido nada de Melissa Hill e embora me tenham dito que os anteriores livros dela eram algo monótonos, não deixei de querer ler este livro. Devo dizer que fiquei agradavelmente surpresa. Sempre gostei imenso de livros com cartas perdidas pois dá um toque extra de romance e de mistério a uma história que por si só já é um romance. É um livro leve, sem grandes complicações apesar do mistério que as cartas encontradas fornecem à história.

Uma história doce, com personagens envolventes, divertidas, mas com os seus problemas e segredos que vamos conhecendo ao longo da leitura.
Esta leitura também nos mostra a importância e o enorme poder do perdão.
Gostei muito.

Aqui está o livro perfeito para esta altura do ano. É um livro ideal para o Verão, leve, fresco e fluído!
Melissa Hill escreveu um bom romance, porque cruza 3 histórias, qualquer delas mais interessante que a outra.
Por um lado, acompanhamos Leonie na sua fuga precipitada para os Estados Unidos. As razões para esta fuga vão-nos sendo reveladas aos poucos através de flashbacks, onde passamos a conhecer Adam, o homem por quem Leonie se apaixonou mas com quem teve uma história sem final fel

I can't remember the last time I was unable to finish a book. Halfway through and it still had not gotten to the point of why the main character ran away from her home. Usually when I read a book I keep thinking about it after I put it down, but not this one. Several weeks after start I admit defeat. The book is a chick-flick and will have the predictable happy ending anyway...
Marie O'Neill
I found this book to be a bit of a chore. Based around three 'mysteries', the suspense was heavy-handed and the resolutions too easy. I found myself impatient with the clunky cliffhangers and finished the book out of a sense of duty rather than any real desire to find out what happened.

Leonie was happily in love and engaged to fiancé Adam, but now she’s living halfway across the world from him in San Franscisco. She doesn’t want to be found, and she doesn’t want people to know the secret she ran away from either.

When she moves into a new home, she finds a box of letters all to the same woman from the same man, Nathan, begging for forgiveness. Leonie is curious and decides to find out who the mystery recipient is.

She enlists the help of her neighbour Alex who has a fair few sec

This was my first Melissa Hill novel and I was not disappointed. Although I thought the beginning was a tiny bit slow, I eventually warmed to Leonie and really enjoyed this novel. I found the premise and intrigue of the letters she finds interesting and it kept me wondering along with the slow unveiling of Leonie’s past relationship. And with such lovely, confused characters that you can’t help rooting for combined with the gorgeous San Fransisco backdrop, wha
I would have enjoyed this book more if it had been better edited. I am generally forgiving of a few editing errors but this book had one every few pages. Things like missing words, saying woman instead of women, saying the word the twice in a row, etc...

Beyond the editing issues, I thought the story was cute enough to hold my attention but I'm ultimately not sure that I actually think two out of the three couples did anything "wrong" which made the premise kind of iffy for me. I do think the bo
I like the plot line of this story. It's simple, but there are layers of twists. While we know that that Leonie is running away from her past, her story is deeper than anyone can predict.

It's nice that Leonie's story isn't revealed all at once but in sections. I almost forgot that there are transitions between the past and the present. However, it does drag on at times and because there are so much description, it doesn't appeal to me much.

The title Please Forgive Me ties in very nicely to all t

Comparativamente ao livro anterior da autora que tinha lido, "Prometo Amar-te", gostei muito mais deste. Uma narrativa não tão linear e mais aprofundada, bem escrita e com personagens cujas histórias se interligam de forma inteligente. Além disso não achei um romance tão romântico e fantasioso como o anterior que tinha lido.

Sem dúvida um livro que gostei de ler e uma autora que recomendo!

Two best friends, one in Dublin, one in San Francisco. Déjà vu... I live in Dublin, my best friend lives in San Francisco. Honestly I’m sure that’s the only reason I finished reading that book. The story has no interest and in my point of view the author cheated by keeping the main character’s secret until the end, like a trick to keep her readers reading.

Talvez por não ter grandes expectativas sobre este livro, esta leitura acabou por tornar-se agradável e, em certas partes, até viciante. É leve e chega a ser divertida. O toque de mistério contribuiu para me agarrar até à última página.

Inhalt: Von einen Tag auf den anderen reist Leonie von ihrer Heimatstadt Dublin nach San Francisco. Ihren Freunden will sie keine Rechenschaft über ihre plötzliche Flucht abgeben. Fest steht aber, dass irgendetwas zwischen Leonie und ihrem Verlobten Adam vorgefallen sein muss. Ansonsten würde Leonie ihren geliebten Adam niemals von heute auf morgen im Stich lassen.
Angekommen in den Staaten findet Leonie nach kurzer Zeit eine umwerfende Wohnung, in der sie sich wie zu Hause fühlt. Beim Säubern un
Hm, I was sure I was going to give this book a four star review, because I actually liked it quite a lot, until the last 30 pages, when it all went downhill for me.


So, I guess the author actually wanted us to root for Lee and Adam? Like, seriously? He is such a weak pushover. And the book makes us believe that she is the one that has done something wrong and needs Adam's forgiveness? Seriously? The only thing she has done was tell him the freaking truth for crying out loud. An

Loved this storyline, wow! A real page turner right until the end. Loved the characters and hated for the book to end. A MUST READ!
A good read. A bit slow going but a good story.

“So do you think there's more to her than meets the eye!" he teased, and Alex cursed herself for being so easy to read.
"My guess is she's running from something.
"No shit Sherlock", she agreed silently. "Probably a guy. It's nearly always a guy.”
“I guess people do have different ways of dealing with stuff,' she said diplomatically, 'but you can't run away for ever.” 0 likes
