  1. I love Attica Locke! Read The Cutting Season and Black Water Rising last fall, and loved them both! The Cutting Season was my favorite, but really enjoyed Black Water Rising as well. I hear she has a new book featuring Jay coming out next month…and this makes me very happy. 🙂 Have a great week!!!
