Synopsis: Ellen O’Farrell is a professional hypnotherapist who works out of the eccentric beachfront home she inherited from her grandparents.

He’s attractive, single, employed, and best of all, he seems to like her back. Then comes that dreaded moment: He thinks they should have a talk.
Braced for the worst, Ellen is pleasantly surprised. It turns out that Patrick’s ex-girlfriend is stalking him. Ellen thinks, Actually, that’s kind of interesting. She’s dating someone worth stalking. She’s intrigued by the woman’s motives. In fact, she’d even love to meet her.
Ellen doesn’t know it, but she already has.
Review: The book is really well written & the plot is very interesting. I really enjoyed how the story plays out, the only part that confused me was the switch in POVs because there weren’t clear indicators & it took me a few seconds to realise who was who but as the book progressed it became easier. I thought it was weird that Ellen felt intrigued by Saskia’s constant presence & ohmygod the amount of times Patrick pissed me off because of not going to the police to file a restraining order:
Like did it have to take Saskia breaking into their house in the middle of the night & your son to fall down a staircase & break his arm for you to go to the damn Police when you had 100 other chances to do so 🙄🙄
It took me time to read it but it wasn’t slow at all, it was just me who was slow at reading it😂😂, it was a good book to read.
