book | Fiction | 2011
UK → Penguin
US → Putnam

Ellen O'Farrell is an expert when it comes to human frailties. She's a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to life-long phobias. So when she falls in love with a man who is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend 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. Saskia has been masquerading as a client, and their lives are set to collide in ways Ellen could never have predicted.

This wonderfully perceptive new novel from Liane Moriarty is about the lines we'll cross for love. It's about the murky areas between right and wrong, and the complexities of modern relationships.

As Ellen is about to discover, we're all a little crazy – even her.

Reviews

Not all the best writers are to be found on the Miles Franklin shortlist. Consider Liane Moriarty, superb in technique... should have more critical success. All of her novels set themselves extremely difficult tasks... The novel blends elements of crime, horror and love story.

Sunday Age

Fascinating and compassionate fiction.

The Daily Telegraph

A compelling love triangle is a the centre of this romance with an edge, the latest triumph from best-selling Liane Moriarty.

The Australian's Woman Weekly

A witty modern love story in the age of cohabitation, blended families and second chances, this is a compassionate, absorbing tale.

Booklist

Australian Moriarty has managed to combine an infectiously lighthearted romance about a Sydney hypnotherapist with a potentially upsetting examination of a stalker’s interior life.
