After a non-starter (People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks – I just couldn’t get into it), I chose a fluffy read, The Hypnotist’s Love Story, by Liane Moriarty to get through quickly at this hectic time of year. I enjoyed The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies (and I am liking the mini-series on HBO too). The Hypnotist’s Love Story is about Ellen, a hypnotherapist, who begins dating Patrick after several failed relationships. Patrick is pretty much perfect and they hit it off right away, but his ex-girlfriend is stalking him. Ellen thinks this is intriguing at first, but it becomes a big problem. This is not a deep story, but it was an enjoyable read and one that I had trouble putting down.
