This is a sweet novella about a subject I haven't seen covered much in fiction, especially in the romance genre. Erica suffers from OCD, mostly having to replicate action three times. Ms. Krantz does a nice job explaining her compulsions and how Erica tries to cope with them. She attends her support group and sets up mechanisms to help her when she gets a new job. Her friend Kara helps though sometimes Kara seems manipulative, pushing her at Blaine, a guy at her new job.
I know little about this disorder but the subject matter
is compelling. My only quibble is the book was too short. I would have liked to hear more about Blaine and seen an exploration of their relationship as it grew. Also, while dealing with Christmas lights is covered
, I'd have liked to see how Christmas stresses someone with OCD. Still, it's a nice quick story and well-worth reading.
