- - PLOT - - Abby just wishes that everyone would leave her alone to immerse herself in her work, and let her get over Kieran in her own good time. Yes it was taking her a long time to get over him, and yes his wedding to his beautiful new bride was a kick to her already crushed heart but she would get over it in time. Abbey wishes she could just forget him, and the horrible mess ever happened! That is until a freak accident causes a nasty blow to Abby's head and she is told by doctors that she could every memory she has, and there is as far as they know no way to stop this from happening. It could happen quickly or in small pieces, but eventually ... Read the complete review

Melissa Hill is one of my favourite contemporary authors so I am always highly delighted to read a new book from her. As she is an Irish writer, all her novels are set in and around Dublin and usually focus on a thirty something female, often facing a major trauma. This is the case with Before I forget, her latest, but that does not in any way make her a formulaic writer, as each book feels fresh and original and an extremely good read. At the start of the book, Abby's partner of four years has just left her and, in dealing with her misery, she is becoming a bit of a workaholic and a social recluse. One morning, on her way to work she becomes the ... Read the complete review

I am a huge fan of Melissa Hill's books and have read pretty much everything she has written so far, bar a few that I can't get hold of from the library! I was surprised to see that this book had passed me by and only heard of it after a browsing session on Amazon. The storyline intrigued me so I quickly looked at the library to see if they had a copy and luckily they did. I was hoping that it would live up to my high expectations (only set by how great her other books are!) and eagerly read it. It was brilliant, and I hope this comes across in my review for "Before I Forget". Abby Ryan is quite happy with life, but all that changes when she's hit by ... Read the complete review

I am a big fan of Melissa Hill's books - The first one I read was The Last to Know, and I have been trying to track down her older titles since. Before I Forget is her latest title, and having converted my best friend to a fan this book came courtesy of her. As a huge chick lit fan, I find the real appeal of Melissa Hill's books is the fact they are not fluffy or predictable. They tend to take on an unpredictable rollercoaster ride, and when you think that you have the story line sussed it then throws you in the opposite direction!! The main character of the book is Abby, who seems to live life in the slow lane. She doesn't like to fly, eat exotic ... Read the complete review

I really enjoyed one of Melissa Hills previous booked called Please Forgive Me, which I've also wrote a review on. After reading this I looked her up and realised that she'd actually wrote quite a lot of other chick lit books and decided I'd have to check them out. I actually found this one in a second hand book shop in pretty good condition! The cover actually sort of reminds me of the covers of Dorothy Koomson's books; since there is a real person on the front cover and also it has a question on the front- on the cover it asks 'if you could hold onto just one memory what would it be?' This seems a lot more effective than the blurb, summing up the book in a ... Read the complete review
