Olivia Paras, the White House Head Chef, is put into the position of working with her not-so-favorite Sensitivity Director Peter Sargeant on a project for the First Lady and their very first efforts yield 2 dead bodies. Without any preamble they are directly in the frying pan of a conspiracy that threatens not only their jobs but their lives as well.
Ollie, while thinking that she and Sargeant are not involved in anything more than discovery, realizes that she is being followed on her trip home and while alluding her stalker, she rescues an elderly man who is a bit lost. With her instincts on alert and an Secret Service escort outside of the White House, Ollie figures out the threats that are hovering over the President and his family.
The story ,characters, and writing were all so enjoyable. The story was tight, presenting clues in multiple ways, Characters that not only pushed the plot but also improved our knowledge of other characters, and the writing was clear and crisp.
Love the series, love the characters! Can't wait for the next one.
