Book: State of the Onion
Author: Julie Hyzy
Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at the White House–especially in the kitchen? State of the Onion by Chicago author Julie Hyzy introduces us to the White House Chef mystery series.
Olivia Paras is the Assistant White House Chef and when her dream job of Executive Chef becomes available, she finds herself contending for the job with her nemesis, a television celebrity chef. Concurrently, Olivia witnesses a murder and finds herself the target of an assassin. Not even her Secret Service boyfriend and his team can keep her safe, so Olivia takes things into her own hands.
Winner of three book awards, including the literary mystery Anthony Award for Best Paperback Original, Hyzy keeps the reader riveted with her snappy dialogue and fast-paced plot. A culinary thriller that will leave you wanting more.
