Publisher's summary

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' 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.

Enjoyable series, irritating main character

I really enjoy this series: backstage at the White House, the running of a professional kitchen, lightweight murder mysteries. Ollie is a smart, talented professional chief who notices things. While running a busy kitchen serving food to some of the most important people in the world, she just happens to stumble onto clues that lead to the solutions to various plots and mysteries.

While I enjoy this series of books enough to overlook most of the many holes in the plot, I have lots of trouble with the holes in Ollie's character. She is so often unable to talk in stressful situations that I want to smack her! When she does speak under stress, she says the wrong things in the worst way possible. If she decides to tell someone in authority about some clue, she minimizes the important part or leaves it out entirely. Maybe I'm not all that willing to overlook plot holes after all.

But I love the narration, the stories are easy listening, not too complicated, and fun. Give them a try.
