Cover reveal for another cozy mystery brought to you by Cozy Cat Press, “Game Change” by T’Gracie and Joe Reese. This is the third book of the Nina Bannister Mystery series, so I had to do my best to keep a similar look as the first two books who were done by another cover artist.
Look for it coming soon to print and ebook!
BLURB: Nina Bannister just wanted to enjoy her retirement in her little bungalow on the sea coast. But she couldn’t resist being pulled out of her well-deserved rest, when asked to return as principal of Bay St. Lucy High School. How hard could it be? After all, she’d served as a principal before. Of course, Nina had no idea that she was destined to encounter one of her college enemies–April van Osdale. It seems, the infamous April is heading up an important state-wide education committee and has been appointed by the governor to raise Bay St. Lucy’s abysmal test scores. When Nina comes face-to-face with April, she is shocked that the self-important woman seems to have no recollection of their previous unpleasant encounters. Nina hardly has time to ponder this strange occurrence, when April demands that Nina institute a draconian routine of standardized test preparation at the high school. Nina plays it cool on the surface but is seething underneath and contemplates what she might do to neutralize the mean-spirited Ms. van Osdale.
Her first attempt involves forcing the prim woman to meet her for lunch in a local dive, but this quickly goes awry when Nina unfortunately reveals some incriminating information about the ladies’ basketball team, resulting in April firing the coach. With no assistant coach available, it appears the popular team will not be able to play the rest of their season unless a new coach is found. So, now Nina is not only a principal, she is also a ladies’ basketball coach. So much for retirement! But Nina is determined not to let April van Osdale’s tyrany ruin the lives of her students and teachers and begins to develop a plan to oust the vicious administrator from the town. Unfortunately, before she can implement any of her ideas, the mysterious Ms. van Osdale disappears–and it looks like she’s been murdered. Can Nina solve this crime? Does she want to? Can she coach the team well enough to get the Bay St. Lucy Lady Mariners to State? Maybe she can, but it will take a major GAME CHANGE!
