Book Review: Eggsecutive Orders

By Julie Hyzy
Publish Date: January 2010
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: #3
Source: Borrowed from Library
Personal Rating: 4 stars

Summary from GoodReads:
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's 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.
My Review:
I really like this series. This one was fun we got to meet Ollie's Mom and Nana, and guess who comes back. No you have to wait and read it to find out. Very good mystery.
This mystery took place right before Easter. I didn’t (and still don’t really because I haven’t googled it) know they did an Easter egg hunt and activities with children at the White House. Have you ever heard of this?
Well Ollie is kicked out of the White House kitchen and she needs to get the eggs ready for the hunt that is in a few days. Of course, will they still let her use them? And where can she prepare them? This is when you get to meet Bucky in a whole different way. I enjoyed knowing more about him and his personal life. Ollie and Bucky are pretty much at odds in the other books leading up to this, and not that it changes, but it’s fun to see the personal side of Bucky.
Verdict: Another great book in the series.

  1. This sounds like a fun series. I'll bet they do have Easter egg hunt festivities at the White House.
