    Ellen O’Farrell is a bit unusual. She’s a hypnotherapist. She’s never met her father. And she can’t seem to keep a relationship going. (Okay, that’s more normal that we want to admit.) When Ellen meets Patrick, she’s hopeful nevertheless. But when he says he needs to tell her something, she fears the worst. When Patrick reveals that his ex-girlfriend is stalking him, Ellen thinks, "Is that all?" She’s more intrigued than frightened. She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.

    S says: "a twisted love story...so interesting!"

    Any additional comments?

    Have you ever met a character you want to smack? This is "the hypnotist", Eleanor. She is so sickeningly sweet and the storyline is so "over-the-top" smultzy, I found myself talking out loud to my iphone "oh come on!" The poor reader is tortured by Ellen's never-ending stream of thoughts and analysis about every single happening and every word spoken by every character. A silly novel with little to offer.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.
