    One thought on “Buffalo West Wing”

    1. This has been one of my favorite books in the White House Chef series. It was interesting see the kitchen and Ollie adjusting to a new president and first family and all the changes that come with that. I got just as frustrated as Ollie with some of the situations she was in and caught on at about the same time as to what was going on. Well written story and good action at the end. Tons of recipes at the end, you could practically eat for a week off the menus in there.

    2. It was fun, but I think I just read it out of order-which is not that bad, but now I want to go back to the previous administration for some comfort food-- and I"ll be honest, not sure how I feel about Ollie's love life. (Yes, I know she's fictional, but still) =]

    3. When a new President is elected everyone on the White House staff gets a little nervous. Then when White House Executive Chef, Olivia refuses to serve some buffalo wings that were left in the kitchen as a gift for the children of the new first family, she finds her job in peril. The first family decides to bring in their own chef who will be in charge of all their meals, and the new guy definitely has his sights on Olivia's job and he's not above playing dirty to get it. Meanwhile a terrorist gr [...]

    4. This is an intelligent crime series, which largely centres on the kitchen staff of the White House. The first female executive chef in this establishment now finds herself in danger of being usurped. The arrival of a new First Family, kids in tow, means a shakeup all around. New agents, new catering staff - an insufferable personal chef who thinks he should thus run the kitchen - and new dangers. Ollie's watchful eye catches sight of a box of cooked chicken wings from a popular chain, delivered [...]

    5. White House executive chef Olivia Paras isn’t pleased when a new First Family moves into residence and informs her they’re bringing in their personal chef. It’s clear the man is after her job, but that isn’t the only threat on the horizon. Somebody tries to sneak in a box of chicken wings addressed to the President’s children. Olivia won’t permit them to be served until she learns who sent them. It turns out her judgement call was correct as a bigger conspiracy unfolds. Can she gain [...]

    6. Very good entry in the White House Chef mysteries. I had guessed WHEN the action was going to take place but not the who or the why or what would happen. It was excellent.There is a new president in office and with that comes a whole new load of responsibility and crisis. Ollie and her team have to face a huge uphill battle from almost day one when it becomes apparent that the new occupants are not crazy about her and their personal chef shows up and starts throwing Ollie and her team under the [...]

    7. Not bad, but the repetitive "oh I'm going to lose my job to the new family chef" stuff got annoying. I like this series, but this wasn't one of the better episodes.

    8. 3.5 stars. I had to try just one more in the series, I already had the book from the library, I was still in the mood for a mystery, and I couldn't resist when I saw that it was about the transition to a new President. It was so timely with our nation just having gone through an election, even though our President stayed the same (2012 Obama). The glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes at the White House during a changeover and the impact it has on the employees both professionally and pers [...]

    9. BWW is the fourth in the White House Chef Mystery series. I would have to rate it the best so far in the series.A box of chicken wings delvered to the White House for the First Families children has put things in an uproar. Ollie, following procedures, refuses to give them to the children and then one the of assistant chefs gives them to some workers in the laundry room of the White House. The wings have been tainted with arsenic and some of workers go to the hospital. Soon Ollie learns that the [...]

    10. Ok when I read the third book in the White House Chef series I said it was the best in the series so far and it was. But now the best in the series is Buffalo West Wing. A new family has moved into the White House and this brings other changes and new things with it. Ollie has a new challenge -will she get in trouble or not? You will have to read this one to find out.

    11. At first, I thought the book was starting a little slow and introducing too many plot elements for a novel this size. Luckily, everything worked out in the end and all the plot elements came together and saved the story. I think if the beginning had been a little stronger, I would have given 5 stars instead of 4 because I enjoyed the twists and action in the later chapters enough to consider it.

    12. Well, Julie has done it again! She has come up with a new culinary thriller adventure featuring Ollie Paras, the White House executive chef, that not only grabbed my attention from the beginning but held it throughout the entire book.It's inaguration day at the White House and Ollie and her staff, not to mention the secret service, are run off their feet. It's a big production when the new president and his family move into the White House. This time it's a little different as the new family, th [...]

    13. This White House chef mystery was back up to par, with lots of details about cooking for the White House and the presidential family. I love those behind-the-scenes details, although I'm sort of appalled by the bickering, competition, and backstabbing. In this book, a new president and First Family have moved into the White House and we see how the kitchen staff transition to serve the tastes and needs of new residents. Although, every four or eight years, the president changes but the staffers [...]

    14. Buffalo West Wing is the fourth book in the White House Chef Mystery series, but it's the first I've read. Culinary cozies are a favorite of mine. I love the cooking, the menus, and the descriptions of the foods. Buffalo West Wing did not disappoint. It included three very different menus at the end of the book, each tying nicely different scenes in the book.I particularly loved that Buffalo West Wing, and I'd assume the previous books in the series as well, mixes something most of us know at le [...]

    15. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this novel as I so enjoyed the last three titles in the series so much. Ms. Hyzy did not let me down. Not one iota.This book, however, had the new perspective of adding school-aged children to the normal demands of the White House kitchen. As anyone can attest, when you add children to a situation, it becomes quite fluid. This was shown in the character, Josh. I liked Josh and became concerned for him. I had to laugh when the First Children 'told' on C [...]

    16. Wow, this series just keeps getting better and better with every book. This book made me love every character more and more.Every really good book has lovable and hateable characters, and this book had the perfect hateable character, a new chef that's brought in. He was arrogant, cocky, and rude but he was vital to the story and because he was so rude he even had me laughing at times. I kinda hope he murders someone in the next book, but another part of me hopes he stays on to keep some humor in [...]

    17. That's it. I am so done with this series. I loved the concept of it. The main plot of the book is great but I cannot get past the fact that so many of the characters are idiots or a-holes. A large order of chicken wings appear in the White House kitchen for the new first children and EVERYONE wants the kids to have them except the head chef who is following protocol and notifying Secret Service about the problem. When the kids stumble upon them matters get even worse. Long story short, the secre [...]

    18. I discovered the White House Chef Mystery Series by Hyzy perhaps a month ago. It was the title HAIL TO THE CHEF that attracted me on a shelf in front of the check-out desk in Barnes & Noble (I'm a bit of a foodie & love tv food shows). Read it while on vacation in Florida. When I got home, bought books #1&3 (CHEF was #2) and zipped thru them. Yesterday, read BUFFAL WEST WING in a day. It might be my fav so far- especially given the suspense toward the end re terrorists. Quite a reali [...]

    19. So, the bad first: Some of the secondary characters are very black and white, and really become very annoying in a frustrating way, as they appear to have no redeeming characteristics at all. I suppose this could be viewed as a plus point - the writing is good enough to actually have the characters annoy you?I'm still loving the White House backdrop and the whole Presidency transition thing reminded me of Ellen Emerson White's President's Daughter series, except from the other side of the fence, [...]

    20. Excellent! Now I see what readers of this series mean when they say that Hyzy keeps getting better! I can relate to the MC despite her unique work environment and Hyzy's character development is believable. There are strong dramatic scenes in this mystery. Kept me enthralled while I sat on an airport tarmac cramped in my seat. The drama builds as the story unfolds to a satisfying climax and a 'cozy' ending.Looking forward to the next in this strong series.

    21. Mixed feelings on this one. In some ways, it was better than the others, but there were a couple of problematic plot points (for one, the First Lady would just not be that clueless on security issues). Lots of little punctuation errors too, which were annoying. On the other hand, it was definitely fun reading and an exciting mystery.

    22. This is a truly fantastic mystery series! DC localities, food, politics, lots of realistic characters, job angst, and now some romantic intrigue. Note to followers of this genre: it's not the straight-forward, one beau only romance you will usually find. Bon appetit!

    23. This is suppose to be a cozy mystery but the first three fourth's of the book was about who was in "charge" in thekitchen and arguments over that. The last 2 or 3 chapters had some action but never any mystery to it.

    24. I love these books. I couldn't put this down! I liked the addition of Virgil, he is one of those characters you love to hate. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    25. I enjoy this series, but was a bit disappointed in this book. It seemed to drag with the repetitions of how much things had changed and how little she was liked by the new First Lady.

    26. The book opens with Olivia Paras, aka Ollie, the Executive Chef of the White House and her kitchen staff, dealing with a new administration entering the White House. President Campbell doesn’t run for Presidency due to health issues. The new President, Hyden, is younger and dynamic, with two small children: Josh (7) and Abigail (13). It’s not uncommon for any of the White House staff to be replaced when a change happens.Inauguration Day is a hectic day at the White House. Everyone is on thei [...]

    27. For most of this book I had decided that I didn't like it. I had decided that this would be the last one in this series for me. there were times when I felt frustrated to the point where I stopped enjoying the story. I knew things would work out in the end, but some of how the main character was treated and how she responded was overly irritating. But then I got to the last quarter of the book an it got so good that I couldn't stop reading. I finished the rest of it in one sitting even though I [...]

    28. This book has an exciting story for the White House Chef series. The characters give the book wonderful details of the White House, the setting is Washington D. C and the ending has the reader asking questions. This is a great lead-in to the next story. copy right 2011

    29. I need to read some of the books earlier in the series, I had a little trouble understanding who some of the characters were. Great read other than that. Loved the ending
