BLOG TOUR [This or That? + Giveaway!] Rook by Monica MacDonald

by Monica MacDonald

Could you be the monster to save who you love?

Two women, separated by generations, must leave what they know to start a new life. Seventeen-year-old Kate's senior year is ruined when she's moved from the only home she's ever known. After an isolating month alone in her apartment, school starts, but neither her classmates nor her teacher are who they seem. Kali, a single mother living in the nineteenth century wilds of Montana, is stalked by a malicious past. She fights to keep her daughter safe while her freedom is threatened by her less than benevolent benefactor. Both find love, and with it hope, but that is quickly ripped away as one woman must learn the lessons of the other -- before it's too late to save either.

Monica is a married graduate student with three boys. Utah is home right now, but the need to wander has extended beyond the fantasy world of writing and into real life. She's lived all around the US and even into the Middle East. The world is really a small place, only made bigger through imagination.

Ebook – want my whole library all the time!

Beach, but I’m irrationally afraid of sharks, regardless of the body of water, so I’m not getting in!

Pizza or Pasta?

Horror or Romance?
Can we get a mix?  That’s the best!

Don’t drink cola at all. Icky.

Harry Potter all the way.  My youngest son was a look-alike with the book 1 Harry.

Gum or Breath Mints?

I don't think I've ever met someone who hated both winter and summer! I've gotten one or the other, but never both!

I'm not a huge fan of winter or summer either, I like Spring best and fall is next. But I like that school is out in the summer, so there's a positive there. I have many things in common with Monica! Thanks so much for hosting a tour stop!
