This time Olivia Paras' mystery was personal. Why was her father allowed to be buried at Arlington when he had received a dishonorable discharge from the army? White House social events take a back seat in this mystery, but Ollie builds upon her relationship with First Son, Josh, and the First Lady. It was so nice to see that Ollie continued to be a strong, independent woman while having a man who loved and supported her, instead of telling her she was a nuisance. It was inevitable that I would finish this book quickly as the story was so interesting, but now I have to wait for Ms. Hyzy to concoct another tasteful adventure to enjoy.
Although the mystery in this book stands alone, I think the reader would get more enjoyment from it if she read each of the White House Chef books in order and was able to fully embrace the character development from "State of the Onion" on.
I liked the direction that the character of Peter Sargeant is going. Peter should be very interesting in upcoming books. The book read very fast so it held my interest. It was a very good read and I look forward to the next book.
Excellent mystery, especially since it emphasizes a long-ago mystery, which I love.
If anyone had not read this series; however,I would start with book one and read the rest in order. Each one is a great read in itself. One can can read about the professional progress of Ollie as a White House chef as well as the ups and downs of her personal life. She is a great character with strong attributes which lead her into many a tight spot!
