Home of the Braised – Julie Hyzy

5/5 Peace Talks

On The Back:

With the pressure of an upcoming state dinner that could make or break the president’s foreign policy, White House executive chef Olivia Paras has precious little time to focus on her wedding plans—or to catch a murderer…

Tensions are running high as the White House staff adjusts to a new chief usher and prepares for a high-stakes state dinner, where everything must be perfect. But as the date for the event approaches, things go disastrously wrong when the secretary of defense is found dead in his home, seemingly killed during a break-in.

At the same time Olivia’s fiancé, Gav, is looking into the mysterious murder of an old friend. Is there a connection? Despite an increase in security following the secretary’s death, Ollie learns the president is in imminent danger at the dinner and must do everything in her power to get to him—before it’s too late…

My Thoughts:

This book might have been better than the last in this series, and that’s saying a lot. This series keeps getting better and better and I find myself looking forward to reading the next book in this series more than any other book.

The characters were great in this book. I loved the fact that we got to see more of Mrs. Hyden and we actually got a one-on-one talk with President Hyden in this book, which I really liked.

The mystery was well put-together. I thought I knew who had committed the crimes, but I was thrown for a loop when they were revealed.

Overall a really great book. I wish all books were this good.
