Monday Book Madness - The Hypnotist's Love Story by Liane Moriarty

I needed a light breezy read with some twists. Liane Moriarty is always good for a tale, and The Hypnotist's Love Story did not disappoint. 

Ellen is a self-employed hypnotherapist living in her inherited beachfront home in Australia.  cover blurb - It's a nice life, except for her tumultuous relationship history. She's stoic, but would like something long term.

Enter Patrick - employed, attractive, single, and they fall for each other. BUT, he's actually a widower with an eight year old son. For Ellen, that's not a deal breaker. Everything is going along swimmingly. 

Then, Patrick informs her he has a long time stalker. Ex-girlfriend, Saskia, is obsessed.  cover blurb - Ellen thinks that's actually kind of interesting. She's dating someone worth stalking. She's intrigued by the woman's motives. In fact, she'd even love to meet her.

Ellen doesn't know it, but she already has.    Whoa!

Fun read with good pacing, interesting characters, some twisted motivations, and drama too. 

I was hypnotized and kept the pages turning. 



  1. Hi Joanne - love the use of hypnotised as you were kept turning the pages. Certainly sounds an interesting read - cheers Hilary

    1. it's a light read with good twists. Not a brain burner, but a step above fluff.
