Cover Crush: One Killer Problem by Justine Pucella Winans

Okay I just love the cover for One Killer Problem by Justine Pucella Winans! And I absolutely LOVED & constantly recommended the author’s debut Bianca Torres is Afraid of Everything! Look at this fun cover, first and foremost the Bi-flag color palette is winning, and with that red string connection which also gives us a good clue this is a going to be another mystery. But we also have the best tag line “Be Gay. Solve Crime.” So yeah you will know what you are getting into with this one, a YA queer mystery, that’s witty and campy! I am very excited for this one to release on June 4th, just in time for all your Pride reading lists!

A darkly funny and thoroughly queer mystery thriller with a touch of camp, for fans of Kara Thomas and Kit Frick by way of Only Murders in the Building.

When Gianna “Gigi” Ricci lands in detention again, she doesn’t expect the glorified study hall to be her alibi.
But when she and her friends receive a mysterious email directing them to her favorite teacher, Mr. Ford’s room, they find him lying in a pool of blood. But calling the math teacher’s death an accident doesn’t add up, and Gigi needs all the help she can get to find the truth. Luckily, she’s friends with her high school’s “mystery club,” and so with her best friend, Sean, and longtime crush, Mari, Gigi sets out to solve a murder.

But it turns out, murderers are extremely unwilling to be caught, and the deeper Gigi gets in this mystery, the more dangerous things become. Between fending off a murderer, continual flare-ups of her IBS, and her archnemesis turning flirtatious . . . making it out of junior year is going to be one killer problem.

With a wry, hilarious voice and a main character who is the walking definition of a disaster bi, this book is an ode to cozy mysteries, queer found families, and fighting for the people you love, no matter what.
