InHERent by Lucía Orellana Damacela
In this poetic narrative, author Lucía Orellana Damacela composes “mementos” from her past so they may live in the present. Using her mother language of Spanish, interspersed with English, these poems “instill a sense of belonging.” The author remembers Ecuador, specific recipes and scents, objects and more, which she writes about in order to create something tangible from her memories.
Black Coral by Andrew Mayne
Police diver Sloan McPherson and the Underwater Investigation Unit find a tomb at the bottom of a Florida pond. The sunken van holds the bodies of four teens who disappeared years ago. Police chalk it up to an accident, but Sloan is sure it was murder and starts to dissect the clues of what may be the work of a serial killer still at large.
