Dirty Laundry (A Tucker Springs Novel)

Dirty Laundry - Heidi Cullinan This book was ok…I guess.Not my favorite Cullinan, nor my favorite Tucker Springs.I think I might have been more sympathetic to the OCD storyline if I hadn’t just read Taylor V. Donovan’s "Disasterology 101", where the same subject matter was handled with impeccable detail and realism. This felt like a cliff-notes version of the same story.What I also didn’t really embrace about this book was its need to throw everything into the plot but the kitchen sink…OCD, gay bullying, emotionally abusive relationships, codependency, BDSM, learning disabilities…it felt like an after-school special. And oddly, actually, it was a bit boring.Lastly, I just couldn’t get past the 2 guys on the cover…these guys stuck to my mind as the 2 characters in the book and it just…didn’t jive…and really just turned me off. Like I said in the beginning, this book was ok. I think 3 stars is a bit generous, to be honest. And really, there are better 3-star books out there…if that’s what you’re looking for.
