Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Monster by Mandy Baker

When Alex’s obsession takes him to a strange town in South America, it is up to Liz and Bob to find him and bring him home. What they find when they get there is more than any of them could have imagined. Bob, still trying to wrap his head around all he learned about his friend and the world around him last year, looks forward to a new adventure to take him deeper into this newly discovered reality. 

Alex quickly realizes that nothing is as it seems, nor is it anything like he thought it would be. 

He also soon learns that even he was not what he thought he was and that there was more to Liz’s secret than she had let on. 

Will Liz be able to protect the ones she loves the most?

Will they be able to find the answers and defeat the monster before it’s too late?

Before he got very far, he saw an open top Jeep coming down the road. He jogged up to it as it rolled to a stop near the marketplace. Alex was anxious to see who Bob has sent to help him. He stopped in his tracks as the door to the Jeep opened. The sun’s glare on the windshield had obstructed his view of the people inside. However, as the passenger swung their legs out of the door and slid out he instantly knew who it was. He would recognize those legs anywhere.

Alex broke out into a run and grabbed the passenger into a tight hug, lifting her feet off the ground. He kissed her hard before he set her back down, reveling in her laughter as it washed over him.

“Liz!? What are you doing here?” Alex finally tore his eyes from her face and looked at the man walking around the Jeep from the driver side. His grin widened eve more and he started laughing as he pulled his friend into a hug. “Bob, you S.O.B. I thought you were sending help.”

“Who better to help get you out of your own mess than the best? And I tagged along because I figured, why the bloody hell not.”

“Alex…” Liz started and then stopped when she caught Bob shaking his head out of the corner of her eye. She agreed, now was probably not the best time. They all looked up as they heard someone approaching.
