Nutti's muses

I read little bits of everything.  My mystery preference is cozy.  I enjoy science fiction, but do not have a science background.  And I'm a hobbit from wayback before I was old enough to vote.  

Affairs of Steak (A White House Chef Mystery)

Affairs of Steak - Julie Hyzy Ollie is at it again. Helping to plan a birthday party for the Secretary of State she stumbles across the bodies of two White House employees at one of the possible venues. When the killer seems to think she knows more than she does, Ollie is once again under Secret Service protection. Tension in the White House kitchen is still high as Ollie continues to butt heads with the personal chef of the President's family. Tom & Gavin are also back as Gav and Ollie try to figure out their relationship. Lots of fun in this one, but the food plays 2nd fiddle to all the inner workings of the White House.
