Ellen O’Farrell is a bit unusual. She’s a hypnotherapist. She’s never met her father. And she can’t seem to keep a relationship going (okay, that’s more normal that we want to admit). When Ellen meets Patrick, she’s hopeful nevertheless. But when he says he needs to tell her something, she fears the worst. However, when Patrick reveals that his ex-girlfriend is stalking him, Ellen thinks, Is that all? Actually, that’s kind of neat. She’s more intrigued than frightened. What makes a supposedly smart, professional woman behave this way? She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.
Different from what I usually read (all that YA and fantasy/ adventure), I thought this sounded like a good change of pace. Sometimes that’s what I need to get back into the groove of reading. It’s written in this light, easy to digest way despite the major driving point of this stalker ex. I’m still in the beginning parts of the book, but I’m enjoying myself. If I like this enough, I may have to go check out What Alice Forgot.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
