The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty

August 25, 2015

Ellen O’Farrell is a professional hypnotherapist in her mid-thirties. Her office is located in her beachfront home which she inherited from her grandparents. Ellen has a relatively zen personality, except for when it comes to relationships. She has had a few difficult breakups in the past decade and is ready to finally find someone to build a life with. Using an internet dating site, Ellen manages to meet Patrick.  Patrick is an extremely handsome man in his late thirties. He is a widower with an eight year old son he absolutely adores.  Just as Ellen is deciding that Patrick might be “the one,” he announces that he has something important that he must share with her before they continue the relationship.  Terrified as to what he might say, Ellen is actually a little relieved when he announces that he has a stalker.  

My Thoughts:  
I think I may have fallen a little in love with Liane Moriarty (well at least with her writing).  I started off reading Big Little Lies and then went on to read The Husband’s Secret and What Alice Forgot.  I pretty much plowed through all of them.  The Hypnotist’s Love Story is one of her earlier novels, but is just as great as her others.  One common theme you will find in Moriarty’s writing is a multiple person narrative.  This writing style is especially interesting in The Hypnotist’s Love Story as the two narrators in the story are Ellen and Patrick’s ex-girlfriend now stalker, Sasika.  If you love a little romance with a twist, this is definitely the book for you.  After you read this one, go ahead and read all of her others as well.  I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Transitioning Your Skincare for Fall/Winter

November 17, 2023

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
