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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would most definitely recommend this book to friends because it is a fun and sweet love story. It isn't your usual fluff. Moriarty has such a great way with words.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They all had their good traits but I would have to say The Hypnotist was my favorite character with all of her talents and quirks, you can't help but pull for her.

Which scene was your favorite?

I love the scenes from the beach where she starts to see a future with a family of her own.

Who was the most memorable character of The Hypnotist's Love Story and why?

The most memorable character would be The Hypnotist but her stalker was intense and also memorable. It is hard to chose.

Any additional comments?

I have become a big Moriarty fan. Especially on audiobooks when Tamara narrates the story. Her voice is like silk. I can't wait for the next one with this team!

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

Would you listen to The Good Girl again? Why?

I would listen to The Good Girl again just to make sure that I didn't miss anything. There were a lot of different twists and turns leading up to the very end.

What other book might you compare The Good Girl to and why?

I would compare The Good Girl to Gone Girl for the many plot twists but also to Harlen Coben books. It was very well written. Great from beginning to end.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

I love a book that has different narrator's for different characters. Each narrator seemed to really grasp their character's personality.

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

I don't want to spoil anything but the relationship between mother and daughter was moving and the ending was the best part.

Any additional comments?

I hope everyone will give this book a shot. It is a well written suspense that will keep you engrossed until the last word. I can't wait for the author to write her next novel!
