Buffalo West Wing – Julie Hyzy

5/5 New Annoying Chefs

On The Back:

With a new First Family, White House executive chef Olivia Paras can’t afford to make any mistakes. But when a box of take-out chicken mysteriously shows up for the First Kids, she soon finds herself in a “no-wing” situation. After Olivia refuses to serve the chicken, the First Lady gives her the cold shoulder. But when it turns out to be poisoned poultry, Olivia realizes the kids are true targets.

My Thoughts:

Wow, this series just keeps getting better and better with every book. This book made me love every character more and more.

Every really good book has lovable and hateable characters, and this book had the perfect hateable character, a new chef that’s brought in. He was arrogant, cocky, and rude but he was vital to the story and because he was so rude he even had me laughing at times. I kinda hope he murders someone in the next book, but another part of me hopes he stays on to keep some humor in the series.

I loved the fact that this book did not have a real murder in it. It had a few almost murders but yet it didn’t have a real murder, which made it a nice change from typical cozies.

The characters and setting were very good, once again. Ms. Hyzy really knows how to create a setting and a mystery.

The one point I thought was weird was the fact that there really wasn’t very much cooking in this. It didn’t take away from the mystery, but I thought that in real life she would’ve been doing a bit more cooking.

Overall an amazing book. I’m really looking forward to reading the next!
