Ellen O’Farrell is a professional hypnotherapist who works out of the eccentric beachfront home she inherited from her grandparents. It’s a nice life, except for her tumultuous relationship history. She’s stoic about it, but at this point, Ellen wouldn’t mind a lasting one. When she meets Patrick, she’s optimistic. He’s attractive, single, employed, and best of all, he seems to like her back. Then comes that dreaded moment: He thinks they should have a talk.

Braced for the worst, Ellen is pleasantly surprised. It turns out that Patrick’s ex-girlfriend is stalking him. Ellen thinks, Actually, that’s 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.

    Outstanding book! I loved reading this, and loved the main character, Ellen. It was especially entertaining and enlightening to see the thinking of the stalker. To read the same events from two completely different perspectives -- one healthy and one unhealthy -- was really clever. I wish there were more people like Ellen in the world! Enjoyed this book immensely!

    With her astounding ability to get into the g Hearts and minds of her characters, Moriarty leads us to conclude that each of us has dark and light within us, and all of us deserve redemption. The Hypnotist's Love Story was a fascinating look at how things can be very different from how they first appear.
  • Intriguing!

    By Mac-Chick
    A very intriguing story indeed about an over-analyzing hypnotist, her love story with her boyfriend who comes attached with a stalker. I have to say that the author did a great job in getting into the mindset of her characters and while you feel angry with the boyfriend and his stalker, at the end I found that I really empathized with how she felt. All the characters develop nicely in the story and come to terms with their fears and create new lives for themselves.
