Mystery Cozy | Mystery Amateur Sleuth

White House Executive Chef Olivia Paras wanted some time off when her mom and nana come to visit, but this isn't exactly what she had in mind. A guest has died at dinner and until the cause of death is determined, everyone and everything is under suspicion, including Ollie and her staff. Not only that, her boyfriend Tom has been ordered to keep an eye on Ollie and make sure she keeps her considerable skill as an amateur sleuth out of the investigation. Ollie is somewhat content to let the professionals do their job and spend time with her family, until a newspaper columnist puts her in his sights. When Ollie becomes a target, she decides to fight back the only way she knows how; by finding the killer and clearing her name.

Set against the fascinating backdrop of Washington, DC, Julie Hyzy's EGGSECUTIVE ORDERS is an entertaining, well-written mystery. Ms. Hyzy takes Ollie outside of her natural environment, the kitchen, thus giving readers a glimpse of a different side of this fascinating character. Ollie's nana and mom prove to be great supporting sidekicks in this latest adventure as Ollie sorts through the clues to a satisfying conclusion to the latest White House Chef mystery.

Chef Olivia Paras has too many eggs in one basket-and is feeling like a basket-case...

When NSA big shot Carl Minkus dies right after eating the dinner Olivia Paras's staff had prepared, all forks point to them. Now the Secret Service is picking apart the kitchen-and scrutinizing the staff's every move. The timing couldn't be worse with the White House Lawn Easter Egg Roll to prep for without access to a kitchen. Olivia must find the real culprit-before she cracks under pressure.
