Eggsecutive Orders – Julie Hyzy

5/5 Flawless Easter Eggs

On The Back:

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.

My Thoughts:

It’s been a few months since I read the second in this series, and I had forgotten how good it was. This was entertaining, fun, light, and well-crafted!

I simply adore the characters, Tom, Ollie, Cyan, Bucky, Mrs. Wentworth, and Stanley. They’re all well-crafted and lovable.

How could the setting get better? It couldn’t. I simply love the setting of the White House and the setting gives the story a spy-thriller feel.

The mystery was well-crafted and I didn’t have a clue who the killer was until Ollie did.

There were only two real drawbacks to this story. First, Ollie and Tom’s relationship in the beginning. Don’t get me wrong, I really like both characters, but in the beginning it felt like Tom was being almost rude to Ollie. Second, I was really hoping to know more about Craig, though now that’s impossible.

Overall an amazing book and series! I already have the next one ordered!
