Publisher's Summary

From the author of the critically acclaimed What Alice Forgot comes a wonderfully fun, insightful novel about the crazy things we do for love.

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? Actually, that’s kind of neat." She’s more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.

    Story
    "Strange and interesting love story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The only thing I would change was the would be the exchange between the characters. The story changes points of view between Ellen, the hyptnotist. Who is now involved with Patrick, and Saskia, Patrick's ex who is now stalking him.(Saskia even goes as far as to become a secret patient of Ellen's practice.)The narrator never says "Saskia" or "Ellen" so the listener never knows who's talking at the time. She just glides from person to person. So I had to listen closely to figure out who is talking. This made the story hard to follow and annoying, for almost the first half of the story. Until the characters really developed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hypnotist's Love Story?

    I think the biggest momment is when Saskia breaks into Ellens home in the night and the big confrontation. Up until then, Saskia always kept her distance.Except for being her secret patient, of course, And this was a big turning point in the story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the story as a whole. These are two women that I had an immediate empahy with. They're real, and failible. With real insecurities. Two girls that otherwise would probably be friends. As I stated before, I just didn't like how the reader slide from one character to the other without a pause.


    Do you think The Hypnotist's Love Story needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe, I would love the find out what happened to Saskia, and if she actually finds a love of her own.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, a good story. Just listen closely.

    "Pure fun!"
    Would you listen to The Hypnotist's Love Story again? Why?

    I'm not a re-listener, but I truly did enjoy every minute of this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ms. Moriarty creates such likable characters, with interesting jobs and lives. She's downright funny, but there were many poignant moments as well.


    Have you listened to any of Tamara Lovatt Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but would in a heartbeat after hearing her in this one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several - it was so easy to identify with the characters, each in a different way.

    "Really good book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really like the story and I like the way the author writes. I liked her other book as well. I was very sad when it was over.

    Very boring. I kept waiting for a twist but nothing ever happened. I really like this author but this book was definitely disappointing.

    "I hated the love interest!"

    It's a bit predictable, I kept hoping for a crazy twist but it never happened. It turns out just as you would enjoy and I really hated the love interest. he just seemed like the actual bad guy all along.

    "Love the author - hated this book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Found it very plodding and the plot boring. Loved What Alice Forgot (and others by this author) but don't waste your money on this one!

    "Hypnotist Love Story"

    Story line was great, however I found it confusing when the narrative were different people. The ladies voices were very similar and it was confusing for me. It was a good story and overall I enjoyed the book! 🤓

    "Not Moriarty's best"

    This book was just OK. I found myself not being able to put the book down because I wanted something exciting to happen that never quite happened. A nice ending and a quick read.
