My Thoughts & Review
This is my fourth Susan Lewis book and I’ve enjoyed most of them so was looking forward to giving this one a go, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Forgive Me is a gripping psychological family drama that follows a family who are trying to build a new in a town where no one knows them.
Susan Lewis is a very talented author and I really like the way she writes her book. You can really see the amount of time and effort that has gone into the research for her books, and this one is no exception. I really enjoyed the way this book is formatted and written, I liked how the chapters are intermixed with letters from an unknown character, who we learn about as the plot unfolds.
There are some great twists that I enjoyed and wasn’t expecting while at the same time there were a couple that I figured out, and the biggest one was the ending.
Lewis has once again done a great job in crafting well developed characters, that are very relatable and in most cases reliable.
In the past I have found pacing to be a problem in some of her previous books but this time I thought it was much steadier and I enjoyed it.
Forgive Me was definitely an enjoyable read and would definitely recommend to anyone who likes reading about psychological family drama’s.
I would like to thank Rachel Quin at HarperCollins UK for getting in touch and send me a NetGalley eARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.
