Ellen O'Farrell is a hypnotherapist who helps her clients deal with everything from addictions to phobias. So when she meets Patrick and starts to fall in love with him, she is intrigued rather than frightened when he tells her he is being stalked by his ex-girlfriend. What makes a professional woman behave this way? Ellen would love to meet her! But Ellen already has, she just doesn't know it. Saskia has been pretending to be a client, and their lives are set to collide in ways Ellen could never have predicted.
