White House chef Olivia Paras and her arch nemesis, White House Sensitivity Director Peter Everett Sargeant, must work together to solve the double murder of one of the First Lady’s assistants and the Chief of Staff-before they become the next victims of a merciless assassin with a secret agenda.

Another excellent mystery in a series that gets better and better.

Who knew just finding the bodies could end up being so dangerous? Ms Hyzy wrote an excellent plot that led me right where she wanted me to go and didn’t give anything away until it was meant to. The action at the end even got my heart rate up just a tad – not something one expects from their cozy mysteries!

I absolutely loved the interaction between Ollie and Gav – this is a couple I care very much about seeing succeed. Once again Ms. Hyzy nailed it. I don’t normally like to see my main characters start with one person and end up with another – start as you mean to go on, I say. But in this case, it was a welcome change and I can’t wait to read more about these two and where they end up.

Still need to make Virgil the next victim though….
