Shelley's Review

My review this week is Foreign Eclairs( A White House Chef Mystery) By Julie Hyzy releasing on January 5th this is the 9th and final book in this series.

Series: A White House Chef Mystery (Book 9)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Berkley (January 5, 2016)
Language: English

White House executive chef Ollie Paras has served plenty of meals to foreign dignitaries from around the world. But someone is ready to serve her an ice-cold dish of revenge...

Things are about to really heat up for Ollie. News of a bombing and attempted breakout at a federal prison reveals that the brother of a terrorist she helped defeat is back with a vengeance. And after she gets mugged on her way home from work, the Secret Service won’t leave her side, fearing she is now a target.

When a White House staff member is murdered, officials rush to action over a possible security breach. It may be time for Ollie to trade in her apron for a bullet-proof vest as she becomes part of a bold strategy to make sure this terrorist gets his just desserts...

I love this series and by far this final book is my favorite. Filled with action and suspense this fast-paced read will have you on the edge of your seat. From the very beginning until the last page you are pulled in to the story and at times holding your breath to find out what will happen next. It is bitter sweet to say goodbye to Ollie and the series but I look forward to seeing what Julie has in store for us next. Thank you for a fantastic series and many great hours of reading.

New York Times bestselling author Julie Hyzy writes the White House Chef Mysteries, including All the President’s Menus, and the Manor House Mysteries, including Grace Cries Uncle. She has won both the Anthony and the Barry awards for her mystery fiction.


  1. I love this series and can't wait to read this book.

  2. I haven't read many in the series but I really liked what I read! I am sure Julie will do great if she decides to start a new series.

  3. I do love this series, so yes, it is sad to know it's coming to an end. Thank goodness we have the Grace books to look forward to.
