OCD, Thanksgiving, and Love...a Tuesday Tale

Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Happy Tuesday and time for another edition of Tuesday Tales. This week I take you  to my new young adult romance WIP, Eyelashes Freeze in North Dakota-But Not Warm Hearts.  Follow Adelaide's journey as I present the following picture prompt:

"Adelaide washed her face, brushed her teeth, and braided her hair, wondering how many other people thought about their movements and actions as much as she did. She read the book, The Boy Who Couldn’t Stop Washing, when she was a teenager. The book detailed accounts of people suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, OCD, for short. The featured boy washed himself for hours each day, fearing germs. Other people relentlessly counted or checked things continuously- one woman plucked out each of her eyebrows in an obsession for symmetry of them. Over the years, she rationalized her actions were not as extreme as the examples in that book. However, having a sense of order consumed her. She acknowledged her feelings…

Colin needed physical interaction to ease his mental trauma and right now, his stress meter was off the charts.Melanie would be perfect.He watched her pert breasts through her v-neck shirt, sweat beading underneath his hairline.
Stop.Get up.Leave.You are a murder magnet and some psychopath is tailing you.It is not all about you, stupid arrogant asshole.Colin ran through all the scenarios in his head and each one ended the same way.Melanie folded into an equipment bag.Then, on an autopsy slab.He needed to move away from her, now.“Hey, thanks for the coffee and the concern.I just need to get home and sort some things out.” Colin saw the longing in her eyes and her maternal instincts to care for him blatantly shone through. “Okay, you know,…

Book Review- Dating A Cougar- Donna McDonald

Book Review    ***1/2 Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Today in The Locker is another book review. I take time to read on occasion to hone my skills and connect with readers and other authors. I gave a mature romance a go this time. Dating a Cougar by Donna McDonald – the Never Too Late series
This 262 page read-in-a-day book is the first I’ve read by Donna McDonald. (More About Donna)When I saw this book listed as a free read, I decided to read Ms. McDonald’s bio and get a better understanding of who this author is.
