“I love books that start out with someone making a colossal mistake. This starts with a great one—Dr. Ruby Okada unknowingly falls in love with a man escaping from her psychiatric hospital. The beauty of this slim novel is the way in which the ‘how’ and ‘why’ is all tangled into a quirky puzzle with the ‘so, what happens next?’ I had SO much fun de-tangling.”
