The Hypnotist’s Love Story

The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I wanted to love this book so much!

The novel introduces us to a sort of a love triangle. Ellen, her new lover Patrick and his ex-girlfriend. Each character comes in with their own emotional baggage. Ellen, who never met her birth father, has a tendency to fall for “bad boys”. Patrick, widower and a single father. And finally Saskia, the ex, aka the stalker who still holds an emotional attachment to a relationship that has ended years prior. The first half of the book was great. A new love interest, stalker, personal insecurities… this book had it all… and then it hit the weird turn. As with a help of a magic wand, all the problems that characters were dealing with were mysteriously resolved and everyone lived happily ever after.

I read Liane Moriarty’s other books, and I have very much enjoyed the twists in her stories. This one seems to be one of her earlier works, hence I can say – she is improving with each novel.
