Description

"Often funny, always lovable, this endearing novel of obsessive compulsive disorder and romance is outstanding."
--Boston Globe



An absolutely delightful tale of obsessive-compulsive love, Toni Jordan's Addition is just the ticket for fans of TV's Monk and readers who were captivated by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. A wonderfully funny, supremely intelligent debut novel, Addition is "witty fun" (People), while OCD-afflicted heroine Grace and her new-found paramour Seamus are "thoroughly endearing characters, and their romance is sweet and fun" (Washington Post Book World).

Back cover copy

Grace Lisa Vandenburg orders her world with numbers: how many bananas she buys, how many steps she takes to the cafe, how many poppy seeds are in her daily piece of orange cake. Every morning she uses 100 strokes to brush her hair, 160 strokes to brush her teeth. But Grace's life is about to change on a day when all the tables at her regular cafe are full, and a stranger, Seamus Joseph O'Reilly (19 letters in his name, just like Grace's), invites her to sit with him. Because no matter how organized you are, how many systems you put in place, you can't plan for people, who are unpredictable and full of possibilities. And suddenly, Grace may be about to lose count of the number of ways she can fall in love.

Review quote

"A witty heroine with a crippling case of obsessive-compulsive disorder is at the center of this gemlike debut-think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. A smartly written comedy that cheekily suggests recovery may not be for everyone."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
