Publisher Comments:

A trip to Italys Tuscan countryside is a dream come true for curator and manager of Marshfield Manor, Grace Wheaton. At least until her boss—and benefactor of this whirlwind excursion—becomes the target of a murderer…

 

When Grace and her boss, Bennett Marshfield, turn up at the Italian villa of one of his oldest friends, theyre troubled to discover that most of his friends impressive art collection—including a prized bronze skull crafted by Picasso—is fake. Someone has been selling the real deals and replacing them with skilled forgeries.

 

Unfortunately, Grace and Bennett have to fly home the next day, so theres no time to investigate. But their troubles are hardly over. On the plane, Grace catches a woman trying to poison Bennett. The woman, of course, isnt talking, but by the end of the flight, there are two dead bodies. Now Grace has to wing it to find a mile-high murderer—especially since she suspects Bennett is still in danger…

Synopsis:

White House executive chef Ollie Paras must put her own interests on the back burner when a kindly electrician is electrocuted, and the First Lady's nephew dies in an apparent suicide less than 24 hours after cleaning shrimp with Ollie. Includes recipes. Original.

Synopsis:

With the pressure of an upcoming state dinner that could make or break the presidents 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 Olivias fiancé, Gav, is looking into the mysterious murder of an old friend. Is there a connection? Despite an increase in security following the secretarys death, Ollie learns the president is in imminent danger at the dinner and must do everything in her power to get to him—before its too late…

Includes Recipes for a complete presidential menu!

Synopsis:

White House executive chef Olivia Paras has enough on her plate. But after gaining new information about her father’s death, the First Family isn’t the only family Olivia is concerned about…

Olivia has always believed that her father was an honorable man—until a trip to visit her mother reveals that he was dishonorably discharged from the army. Olivia is even more shocked to learn that he was brutally murdered because someone at his company suspected him of selling corporate secrets. Refusing to believe that her father was a scoundrel, Olivia won’t rest until she proves his innocence.

 

Enlisting the help of her boyfriend, Gav, Olivia must reach out to her father’s colleagues to discover the truth behind his murder. What she’s about to discover may not only put her at risk, but threaten national security as well…

Dalene @ A Date with a Book, March 9, 2012 (view all comments by Dalene @ A Date with a Book)
This book was fun because it was set around Christmas time. Their focus was involving the kids in the White House. This included the kids getting to send in gingerbread men cookies to go with the display. But what will some of the entries mean? Being that the gingerbread house was made by the baker, we learned a lot more about his character. I really liked him and thought he was fun.

Up to this point, we have learned that Ollie has great neighbors, but in his book you really get to know them. It is a tight knit little community in this apartment building. Her neighbors are very genuine and will help her out any time.
I kept getting irritated with the helpers to the electrician who was killed. Did they not feel Ollie’s urgency? Have you ever screamed at the characters in a book you’ve been reading?
Verdict: 4 stars. I really liked this book. Another great book in this series.
