Reviewed on Richard & Judy on Wednesday 6 August 2008. Grace Vandenburg is an attractive, intelligent, witty young woman who also suffers from OCD that makes her count everything in her world. When Seamus Joseph O'Reilly comes in to her world she finds that sometimes the counting doesn't seem to matter so much and when it does Joseph seems to understand. This is a lovely story about just being who you are and being accepted for who you are. Grace is a wonderful character, full of quirkiness, wit and charm who is great just the way she is even if others want to "cure" her. A romantic comedy tackling the issue of OCD in a sensitive and engaging way. Thoroughly enjoyable.
