Today I'm reviewing State of the Onion by Julie Hyzy.
Summary from GoodReads: Introducing White House Assistant Chef Olivia Paras, who is rising-and sleuthing-to the top.
Includes recipes for a complete presidential menu!
Never let them see you sweat-that's White House Assistant Chef Olivia Paras's motto, which is pretty hard to honor in the most important kitchen in the world. She's hell-bent on earning her dream job, Executive Chef. There's just one thing: her nemesis is vying for it, too. Well, that and the fact that an elusive assassin wants to see her fry.
Review after the jump!
Review: This was a fun, if underwhelming book. I really liked reading about the behind the scene of the White House kitchen and Olivia was very well written, but she did border on annoying with trying to solve the mystery and getting herself into trouble. However it didn’t drag, so that’s something. Verdict: Good enough to warrant a look at the second book in the series.
