Pure fiction -- I still loved it!
I liked the whole premise of this story (White House Chef), but I am only willing to suspend belief so far. Therefore, I can live with the opening chapter where a petite chef is the only member of the White House staff able to subdue a possible terrorist, besting an entire group of Secret Service. But, after that, I need the story to feel like it could possibly happen. This heroine does one stupid thing after another and the characters introduced to be her nemeses are so one-dimensional that they are unintentionally funny.
Some one who writes better
She was fair- her voice was acceptable as the voice of the heroine, but other voices were not very distinct.
