~Five Differences Between Stefano & Rodrigo. Also, A Giveaway!~

On Saturday’s post, we mentioned the similarities between Rodrigo and Stefano, which added to the drama in To Die Once. Today, we’ll be looking at the differences! Here they are! 1. Stefano loved to nurture and grow plants; he especially had a love for a certain rosebush. Rodrigo, on the other hand as Jennifer put it, “would never go on all fours on soil.” 2. Stefano showed he was willing to exercise some patience in waiting for Jennifer; Rodrigo, on the other hand, loved to play “Lord of the Manor” and have his way as often as he could. 3. Stefano, from his intro into the story, was a Christian. Rodrigo was not. 4. Stefano had Chidi’s trust and support from the get-go. Chidi didn’t like, trust, or approve of Rodrigo. 5. Rodrigo liked to wine and dine in rich style. Stefano didn’t seem to have a problem with simple living–he seemed more on a mission! 😉 … now you know! For a chance to win an ecopy of To Die Once and be featured …
