Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

Eggsecutive Orders (White House Chef Mystery #3) by Julie Hyzy

From Julie Hyzy's website:
Ollie’s mom and grandmother have flown out to D.C. for the annual Easter Egg Roll and a personal tour of the White House. But plans are scrambled when executive chef Ollie is banished from the kitchen after one of the president’s guests dies at the dinner table. Who killed Carl Minkus? Ollie is at odds with her Secret Service boyfriend, Tom, who has been charged with making sure his intrepid girlfriend keeps her nose out of official business this time. But Ollie is determined to restore her reputation. Will proving her innocence mean the end of a relationship with Tom?

I love this cozy series!! (And I just found out the first in the series, State of the Onion, is a 2009 Anthony Award winner!) Ollie is a very likeable character. And I love that it takes place in DC (which I wrote about in my location post here ) and in the white house. You still have time to catch up on the first two, State of the Onion and Hail to the Chef!

I've never read a cozy, I think. I have some on my TBR. This series sounds interesting.

Michelle and Laurel -- I love them too, but don't get around to them that often. =/

Melissa -- !!! You went a very long time on PBS without getting sucked into cozies, lol!! I love them. I usually feel like reading more and more when I read one. Then after a few I'll feel like reading something a little darker or deeper, but they are definitely good every now and then. =)
