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.

    "Loved this book!"

    A creative and fascinating plot, read expertly by Tamara Lovatt Smith. Liane Moriarty has a gift for getting dialogue (and inner monologue) exactly right. I highly recommend this book as well as her earlier book called "What Alice Forgot".

    "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.

    "Just ok."
    Any additional comments?

    This was my fourth book by Liane Moriarty and it's by far my least favorite. The story was just ok. The alternating points of view were interesting. Unfortunately, she just didn't sell the love story of Patrick and Ellen very well. It was more of an everyday love story than a romantic love story. And there were times that I really wasn't rooting for them to be together. I would definitely recommend What Alice Forgot and The Husbands Secret over this book.

    Story
    ""Might As Well Face It, Addicted To Love" --Palmer"


    I read Liane Moriarty because she consistantly creates fascinating characters, and The Hypnotists Love Story did not disappoint.

    At first, the novel seems to be the simple story about the girl who got the guy and lost him, and the new girl that keeps him. But it doesn't take long to realize that Moriatry takes us deeper than that. With quirkiness, humor, and mystery, Moriarty delivers a story of the lengths we go to for those we love, and the emotional cost of losing them.

    The loser in this story is a woman who goes absolutely crackers when her partner ends their relationship. She stalks him for a couple of years, and eventually gets to the point of breaking into his home when he is out, and spying on him from the street when he is there. She knows she is out of control, but can't stop. The reader almost begins to root for her as we realize her love for this man and his little boy that she helped raise.

    At one point, she breaks into the home of her ex-lovers new girlfriend, bakes biscuits in the woman's kitchen, and then leaves them for her on the front porch as a gift. Hilarious.

    Everyone wins in the end, but maybe no one more than the loser. I think she carries the trophy home.

    "Another good Liane Moriarty story"
    Any additional comments?

    Certainly not Liane Moriarty's best book, but an enjoyable listen to for my daily commute. The narration was good but I did get confused at times which of the two female leads she was reading. The story felt predictable to me and wrapped up a little too tidy. I prefer a strong twist and/or a surprise after a long journey.

    "Kind of..."

    Kind of perfect, I have to say. Some audio books, I want to return them and don't even care if they won't give me a refund -- I loathe them and just want never to be reminded of them again. This book, I treasure every word, and I think it was meant to be read aloud. It feels like a collaboration, perfect author, perfect narrator.

    Story
    "Boring"

    This was a struggle to continue listening to. While the narration was wonderful as most of Moriarty's books seem to have, the story was flat and boring. I kept listening, hoping for a twist or even a climax about ANYTHING, but nothing came.
