'A moving and intelligent comedy about finding love without losing yourself.' GRAEME SIMISON

'Toni Jordan is always a special pleasure' LIANE MORIARTY

'A sweet, charming and romantic book' BBC RADIO 2

'An engaging romantic comedy' THE TIMES

'Witty and entertaining' IRISH TIMES

Grace Lisa Vandenburg counts. The letters in her name (19). The steps she takes every morning to the local cafe (920). The number of poppy seeds on her orange cake, which dictates the number of bites she'll take to eat it. Grace counts everything, because that way there are no unpleasant surprises.

Seamus Joseph O'Reilly (also a 19) thinks she might be better off without the counting. If she could hold down a job, say. Or open her cupboards without conducting an inventory, or leave her flat without measuring the walls.

Grace's problem is that Seamus doesn't count. Her other problem is . . . he does.

As Grace struggles to balance a new relationship with old habits, to find a way to change while staying true to herself, she realises that nothing is more chaotic than love.

A laugh-out-loud, romantic and uplifting read for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The Cactus and Me Before You.

Just plain except for one chapter in the end that almost made my head burst. Only read the whole thing because I paid for it.

I was really disappointed by this novel. I've read many of the Richard & Judy recommendations over the years and have never before failed to have been gripped by a single one before now.Jordan tries a little... More
