Waiting on Wednesday #43: Slow Echoes by Kristina M. Serrano

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Slow Echoes
Author:  Kristina M. Serrano
Expected Publication Date:  June 15th, 2017

Selk Baioumi is Croatian. She's also Egyptian. And American. Despite her vast heritage, the only family she has known is her mom and late grandfather. Other than that, the closest relationship she has is with her boxing/kickboxing instructor, Cliff. And she's perfectly happy with her life, until two new men show up in her cozy hometown of Snow Hill, Maryland. The first, Whistler, an ill--reputed boxer with a paranormal secret. The second, Zahid, the Egyptian father who'd left her mother the day after Selk was born.  
Zahid's return brings the truth about Selk's ancestry and promises of death for many, including Whistler, the not--so--bad boy who's stolen her heart with his dry smile and effortless empathy. In order to obliterate those promises, Selk and Whistler must enter and survive an alternate Egypt where crocodiles swim in venom, stainedglass labyrinths come to life and mummies can slow your every move, even speech? if overprotective Cliff doesn't kill Whistler first. 
Even though it sounds like another love triangle story line, I'm really interested in the paranormal aspect of this story and I can't wait to check it out!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!
