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.

I loved several of Liane Moriarty's books but this one was a bit predictable. I like the way it was read and written.
I seriously love Lianes books. I also love Tamara Lovatt Smith as a narrator. Her accent and voice in general are a real treat! Lianes books are always well thought out and thought provoking. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors as I have picked through her books one after the other. I recommend these books to women for sure as well as a large majority of men!
I like Liane Moriarty and have several other of her books. This one is enjoyable but not up to the calibre of the Husband's Secret which I read immediately prior.
Enjoyed this book, but not as much as Liane's other works. It was still a good read, though. Just not as good as the others. I expected that, though, from the other reviews so I wasn't too disappointed.
As usual, all of Liane Moriarty's characters are blessed, to varying degrees, with superior traits and embarrassing defects that made me cringe and chuckle with rueful recognition. I very much enjoyed the book and loved the narrator's voice and pace.
Great characters. And I even learned a thing or two about Hypnotist's.Really interesting
story, with quite a few twists.
Saskia! She was so crazy and twisted, and she didn't
even know it!
Of all my audio books, she is my favorite narrator .Her voice is so clear.When she changes character,she isn't exaggerated and annoying. Tamara you need to narrate more books!!!
The Twisted X
I really love Liane Moriaty hope to hear from her soon.
And I wish every author that wants their book read would listen to Tamara Lovatt Smith.
I think she is one of the best narrators on audio books.
I liked What Alice Forgot a bit better, but this was very good also. It gives you a lot to think about in your own life. Highly recommended!
I loved the depth of the storyline and the rich, well-developed characters. Telling the story from the point of view of the heroine and the stalker created a balanced, multi-dimensional perspective. The performance was spot-on--one I enjoyed from beginning to end.
