I love Liane Moriarty’s books – they’re fun, smart, and usually tackle topics of some substance. This book, unfortunately, is an exception…
Ellen is a hypnotherapist who prides herself in her work with people – she’s had many successful treatments, helping people in their relationships. Unfortunately, she has not had many successful relationships of her own; that is, until she meets Patrick. Patrick is handsome, kind, and fun – but complicated. He is a widower with a young son, which would be fine, if it weren’t for his stalker…
I think if the characters here were just a little more likable, or the story were a little more believable, or the substance of the book was a little more solid, it would have come together and been ok. But the characters were flat and strange, the story a bit outlandish, and the substance just too airy for my liking.
It wasn’t a book I gave up on, but it did feel just too long and I was glad to reach the end. Not a rave review, this time. Sorry!
