Liane Moriarty knows how to tell a story. As our hypnotherapist, Ellen O'Farrell, sits at
the dinner table with her new love interest, Patrick, she finds out he has a secret to share. Patrick is being stalked by his last girlfriend, Saskia, and she has shown up at their restaurant. She show up everywhere actually. Saskia can not let Patrick or his son, Jack, alone. She follows them by foot and by car. Ellen doesn't know it but Saskia is one of her patients. Saskia sneaks into the house of our too-trusting Ellen under another name just to check out Patrick's new girlfriend.
As Ellen's and Patrick's relationship deepens, Saskia's desperation to separate them goes into overdrive. She becomes more and more unhinged as their relationship becomes an
engagement. Ellen must overcome her own doubts that Patrick is really going to be around and has gotten over his feelings for Saskia. Even after he takes her to meet his parents and proposes, she doubts his feelings.
All of these people come together with more secrets and lies one fateful night to a climax that will make them face all their needed decisions. You can count on Liane Moriarty to pull the strings and tidy it up before the end of the book, one of my favorite traits in authors. Liane Moriarty always tells a good story with some of my favorite fictional characters. Don't miss "The Husband's Secret" or "Big, Little Lies" by her also!
