Cassandra (Casey) Calhoun hasn't been working at the White House for very long, so she's anxious to please and works exceptionally hard. Unfortunately, while gardening in the predawn hours, Casey is mugged. Once she's out of the tulips, she realizes there's a dead woman in a nearby trash can. Secret Service agents converge, and Casey begins to puzzle out why a pretty bank auditor would die this way. Her own inner turmoil helps explain her dogged determination to help solve this case despite her bitty-bbitty physical presence. Think Reese Witherspoon at the White House.
Verdict: This spunky new romantic suspense series is an obvious pick for readers who enjoy Julie Hyzy's "White House Chef" series (Buffalo West Wing), but also think of gardening mystery series such as Rosemary Harris's (Slugfest). Margaret Truman fans might also try. Gardening tips included.
