Reviews

In Moriarty's intriguing follow-up to What Alice Forgot, Ellen O'Farrell is a hypnotherapist in Australia who becomes romantically involved with Patrick, a single father and widower with a troubling secret: he has a stalker-ex-girlfriend Saskia. Instead of being disturbed, Ellen is curious about Saskia, wondering who she is, why she's stalking Patrick, and if she, Ellen, could ever love anyone enough to stalk them for three years. Soon, Ellen discovers more than she was expecting: after three months of dating, she's pregnant with Patrick's child; Patrick wants to get married; and Saskia has been a patient of hers (under a pseudonym) since Ellen started her relationship with Patrick. Ellen and Patrick (and his son Jack) move in together, but Saskia doesn't stop, a problem abetted by Ellen's inquisitiveness and frustration about Patrick's comparisons of Ellen to his dead wife, Colleen. As Saskia's antics become increasingly aggressive, Ellen soon realizes that their bizarre situation has crossed into dangerous territory. Ellen's voice is compelling and believable, and readers will appreciate Moriarty's deft conveyance of a potentially trite topic into the realm of good storytelling. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

New relationships are difficult enough to navigate on their own, but when you mix in a stalker ex-girlfriend and a dead wife with whom your boyfriend may still be in love, things get even more complicated. Ellen O'Farrell, a successful hypnotherapist, faces that very situation. Even though the plot may seem simultaneously far out and familiar, Moriarty's (What Alice Forgot) fourth novel feels fresh with believable, likable characters whom readers will root for (even the stalker ex-girlfriend). Also appealing is the humorous tone, even in the many awkward situations that arise. -VERDICT Moriarty seems to have a flair for writing about realistic situations that have a twist. Fans of Luanne Rice and Barbara Delinsky will enjoy this title; those reentering the dating world and finding it difficult to navigate will be especially entertained.
