Hail to the Chef

Saturday, June 6, 2009

This is the 2nd book in the White House Chef series by Julie Hyzy.

From bn.com:
White House executive chef Ollie Paras has to put her own interests on the back burner when a kindly electrician is electrocuted to death, and the First Lady's nephew dies in an apparent suicide less than 24 hours after cleaning shrimp with Ollie. Ollie suspects something fishy is going on. She'll have to watch her back—and find a killer unlikely to be pardoned.

Ollie Paras has a great way of becoming involved with other happenings in the white house which makes this series so good. It's not all about the kitchen, but that's how the involvement starts. The characters were again fun. I like how Ollie is the type of character that doesn't have to rely on a man (as her boyfriend doesn't make that many appearances in this one). I definitely hope to read more in this series.
