Overview
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 fiance, 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...

In Hyzy’s action-packed seventh White House chef mystery (after 2012’s Fonduing Fathers), White House executive chef Olivia “Ollie” Paras prepares a dinner for President Parker Hyden, staff, and guests—representatives of Durasi, a nation with which the U.S. is in delicate peace negotiations. Talk is circulating that the U.S.-hired mercenaries working in Durasi are about to be recalled and the lucrative contract of their company, Kalto, terminated. Later, Ollie and her fiancé, Secret Service agent Leonard “Gav” Gavin, dash out to meet with Evan Bonder, one of Gav’s friends, who they hope will officiate at their wedding, but instead they find Evan among the victims at a horrific crime scene at his mission workplace, a homeless shelter. Meanwhile, Ollie wrestles with staffing conflicts and provides cooking lessons to the president’s son, Josh, who plays a major role in trying to stop a plot to undermine the peace talks. With grace and aplomb, Ollie juggles her job and sleuthing, receiving a very pleasant surprise of her own at the satisfying conclusion. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Folio Literary Management. (Jan.)
