Sea Change/Sex Change
by T’Gracie and Joe Reese
The 1st book in the series and the latest installment!
Sea Change Highlights
I really took to this book, because Nina is the type of lady that tells it like it is, and seeing some of the stuff she’s thinking but doesn’t say will have you laughing out load.
~A Chick Who Reads
When I started reading this novel, I thought it read like literature. The authors have a very different style of writing than most contemporary mystery writers. The setting of this story seems like a nice place, but it is filled with many eccentric characters. I was kept guessing with this novel.
~Melina’s Book Blog
I love the ‘local color’ characters in Sea Change.
Sex Change Highlights
…a really good book, one that maybe some of those guys up in Washington should read and get a few ideas from wink wink

Part of me wanted to break out page by page in a rant against the politics of the rich and powerful, which generally run counter to those of the rest of us 99 pct. Another part of me wanted to cheer Nina every step of her way, from down South retired schoolteacher to internationally-known Robin Hood of American Politics to internationally-known newsmaker.
So, now that I’ve read the first and the latest (I say that i/o last because I hope Nina keeps going) Nina Bannister Mystery. I can’t wait to read the books that come inbetween. It will be like a wonderful visit with old friends.

Bay St. Lucy is a sleepy little Gulf Coast community––and that’s the way its residents like it. Most of them generally ignore the monstrous old Robinson mansion that sits in the center of town, until one day, insane old man Robinson dies and leaves the house and its accompanying fortune to the town. The residents are ecstatic and begin planning improved schools and cultural centers. Local retired school teacher and village elder Nina Bannister is sent to the man’s funeral in New Orleans and to represent Bay St. Lucy at the reading of his will. However, Nina returns from her trip saddened to report that a long lost Robinson relative has appeared to claim the entire inheritance. Almost immediately, the new owner––flamboyant Eve Ivory––arrives and announces her own plans to turn Bay St. Lucy into a extravagant vacation resort, not plans that anyone in this small town like at all and ones that will quickly lead to murder.

Retired school teacher Nina Bannister has not been idle in her golden years. Now, this famous resident of Bay St. Lucy, Mississippi, is heeding the call of duty again, by running as a replacement candidate for the U.S. Congress, when the state’s present Representative is killed in a plane crash. To her great surprise, Nina is elected, and––to her even greater surprise––she quickly finds that she is not cut out for the lowly life of a newbie––kowtowing to party leaders. When Nina suggests in an off-hand moment (which is secretly recorded by her staff and uploaded to social media) that the government would be better run by women, a nation-wide revolution begins, and Nina becomes its figurehead. Little does she know, however, that a lone disgruntled man is furious with her actions and intends to get his retribution against Nina and all of her followers. Can Nina bring about true change in Washington? Or will her nemesis bring about her demise before she even has a chance to start? This all happens when Nina Bannister goes to Washington and national politics undergoes a SEX CHANGE.
