    1. This is just a mess. A ridiculous mess.Lexi is a moron. She's supposed to be incredibly smart, but she keeps trying to get herself killed. She's supposed to not draw attention to herself, but proceeds to do just that. Over and over.While she's trying to get herself killed, she's also supposed to be planning her older sister's baby shower. But her sister kinda hates her and Lexi feels the same. So why she was asked to plan the shower in the first place, I don't know. But the side plot of this bab [...]

    2. Right off I have to comment on the fact that this book reminded me of the characters from Janet Evanovich's series, Stephanie Plum.Stephanie: big family, works for bail bonding company but does detective work, ends up dating Joe the cop, while also being attracted to the quiet, mysterious, unknown guy, Ranger (spanish). No one knows who he really is, where he comes from the end (of whatever book it was) he asks Stephanie to come work for him at his detective agency. Who also drives fancy black c [...]

    3. Witty, dangerous and add a little romance and the title matches the storyline. The story reads almost like a Jessica Fletcher story whereas the police can't figure out the simplest things but the heroine, Lexi Graves, can. She comes from a family of cops but doesn't wish to be one. She's working as a temp in an insurance company when a murder lands in her lap. Easy read frills and minimum excitement.

    4. Simply the easiest FIVE stars I have given in a while. Everyone should read this. The standard of writing/editing surpasses many of my recent reads and I was fully thrown in to Lexi's character, the plot and the two hunky men she can barely choose between.Lexi is sassy, smart and unique. She chooses a boring temping job over a career she could easily have with her brains, wits, looks and ambitions. Still, her life is plunged in to darkness and danger and crime when she discovers her boss's dead [...]

    5. This was so unrealistic and irritating to read. The main character felt the need to mention her blonde hair, her body, and her intelligence on almost every page. The "romance" had no substance.

    6. This book was a DisappointmentHaving read the High Heels series I was interested in checking some more chick-flick spy books and I came across this. The cover is good enough and the description caught my attention. As I have been reading quite a few paranormal and fantasy novels, I thought of reading something light and regarding chick-flick. So I thought of reading this. And it was a waste of time. I had already suspected who the killer was by the 5th chapter and before half of the book got com [...]

    7. This was a fun read.I loved Lexi and Lily. And Lexi's (protective) brothers. And Maddox. I couldn't find anything to love about Solomon because you don't know anything about him (yet).The only thing that annoyed me was the telling-not-showing at the end which was kind of epilogue-ish and bothered me because this is a series. (view spoiler)[Mostly it bothered me when Lexi was telling us how she's dating Maddox now and I'm like WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN AND WHAT DID I MISS? And then I realise I reached [...]

    8. 4 Easy StarsCute, light, and funnybut not boring. I'll probably read the series, because I'm already team Solomon and like my chances;) Excellent side characters and good continuing story line potential have me looking forward to book 2.

    9. Camilla Chafer followed the checklist for copying Stephanie Plum novels: -- Quirky, pretty heroine with dead-end job and no relationship - CHECK -- Funny sidekick with cool car willing to do crazy adventures - CHECK -- Goofy family for heroine that is WAY too much in her life - CHECK -- Sexy cop love-interest that she thinks she really might love - CHECK -- Mysterious, brooding, PI-sexual interest to hire her - CHECK -- Silly storyline, with a mystery that some should have solved in 15 minutes C [...]

    10. Good beach bookIt was a good read with witty banter throughout. The ending was a bit predictable though. I would read the second book in the series.

    11. First things first - I've heard tons of negative comments about this series. Why? Simply because some people feel that it is TOO much like the Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich. Since I am one that has read the ENTIRE series so far, I can say with certainty that Chafer has written very original characters with their own fascinating stories & plot lines. While I can see why there may be some comparison - it pretty much ends with her being conflicted a guy. Seriously though; name one ti [...]

    12. I got this ebook as a recommendation based on other ebooks I've enjoyed, and at first I was somewhat annoyed; in the beginning of the book, Lexi seems to be a vacuous and stereotypically dumb blonde, and I came close to dropping it. Lexi spends more time being a dumb blonde than an investigator, and the dialogue is quite painful at times. As I read on, however, I found the plot development interesting, enough to hang on until the end. While the antagonist became the prime suspect in my mind quit [...]

    13. Wow! A free ebook that was well worth the time to read and left me feeling guilty that I needed to send the author something. I did ordered the next book in the series! Lexi Graves appears to like being an oxymoron -- a smart blonde. Working as a temp she does just enough work to get by and get paid, but she pays attention and knows more than she lets on. I enjoyed this introduction into a mystery series and was surprised at how well-written and easy to read it was. Wish all my kindle freebies [...]

    14. This was an easy, lighthearted read and I liked it. I thought the main character took some silly risks but they kept the plot moving along even though it was frustrating for the reader. For instance, would a single female really keep leaving the front door open when she knew someone wanted to kill her? I think she picked the wrong love interest and there wasn't enough about him to make it a clear cut choice for me. It's a series so perhaps I'll find her changing allegiance, who knows. It shows I [...]

    15. This story got off to a shaky start for me. I caught a storyline inconsistency early on and because I am OCD it really bothered me.I had to put the book down for several days before picking it back up. Once I got past that issue I ran into some problems with the silliness of the main characters actions .She would repeatedly go off on her own and “ investigate” which I didn’t care for. However…Once I started to get a feel for the character .I started to find her actions endearing. Go figu [...]

    16. This seemed to be a take off Janet Evanovitch's Stephanie Plum series. We have Lexi Graves, a smart, sassy and sexy woman who just happens to find the CEO of the company she temps at dead. She has a sexy looking boss who turns out to be an undercover detective and being somewhat inquisitive in nature but in a fun and entertaining way, she starts investigating the murder together with her friend and neighbor, Lily. Like Stephanie Plum, she finds herself attracted to and attracting 2 smoldering hu [...]

    17. I enjoyed this book a lot.If you're a Castle/Beckett fan, you'd like this one too.I hope to catch more glimpses of Solomon though.Well, next book is definitely in cue.Sorry for the short review, but I'm just so busy with the finals that I can't really sit down for a few minutes and write a normal review.So, four stars for this one!I promise to elaborate more on the next book I read!

    18. Don't judge! Free on iBooks and fairly entertaining. Silly and predictable though. It could easily be made into a series on USA network.

    19. I read this book for the 2018 ATY challenge: A book with a "Clue" weapon on the cover. In this case, it is a gun. If you like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, you will also like this book; this series. There is Lexi Graves, who is employed in a not too brilliant position as a temp in an insurance company. However, she comes from a family of cops or lawyers, as the case may be. She finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. She finds herself in the company and/or being looked for [...]

    20. Murder, fraud, blackmail, can she figure it before someone finds her dead?Armed and Fabulous by Camilla Chafer is the first book in the Lexi Graves Mysteries Series, this book starts out a little like the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Ms. Chafer has given it a different spin. I liked the book and similarities aren’t that big of a deal. The characters are well rounded and the story kept moving along at a nice speed.Lexi Graves is a temp extraordinaire. She has long beautiful blond h [...]

    21. Two stars is being very, very generous. I figured since I gave Lisa Scottoline a very, very generous one star that I could be generous with Camilla Chafer as well.The author is just abysmal. I cannot understand why we constantly elevate incompetence in this country when there are so many great author out there.Chafer does not possess even a basic understanding of commas. She puts a comma after every single adjective, such as, "long, blond, ponytail" or "black, skin-tight, jeans". Who puts commas [...]

    22. A good startThis story was filled with humor, drama and intrigue. I thought the characters were very diverse and funny. Lexi was interesting and even though she was portrayed as a ditz she wasn't and I thought that was excellent writing. Solomon was the character I watched for because there was so egging about him that drew me. I kept hoping there was more of him in the story but was disappointed hopefully he will become a more prominent character in future books. What I didn't particularly like [...]

    23. Holy smoking guns. I read this book every chance I could get once I started it! It will have you glued to the pages from beginning to end.Lexi is a great female main character. Her attitude and spunk are fun to watch change through the book. And her being attracted to her boss adds a whole other level to it. And then when another man comes into the picture, oh man. The sparks are flying.I had my suspicion on who the killer was in the end and I was right. The character's movements and statements [...]

    24. Okay but unspectacular - Lexi is yet another in a long LONG line of "adorkable" young women working dead-end jobs, drifting rudderless through their Twenties despite everybody telling them how smart they are, who seem to populate a certain type of comedy/mystery. They all seem to have some familial connection to law enforcement, are conveniently single or recently divorced (widows get a separate sub-subgenre - full of loneliness, longing, and the ever-present risk of sexualized assault!), and by [...]

    25. I enjoyed this book very much. I did feel the author was channelling Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum, Ranger and Morelli characters but that's okay because I love that series and she did a decent job of it. There were, however, several incidences where I was confused--Maddox tells Lexi not to tell anyone including her family and best friend what she is involved in, then she is talking to Maddox and it is obvious that she did tell her friend and he knows it, then they behave as if her frie [...]

    26. This had potential. There were good moments - unfortunately the terrible editing (so many grammatical errors some sentences just made no sense at all!) really bugged me, and some of the writing was just, well, lame. Embarrassingly similar to the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, this book felt derivative and like the author was still really working out her own spin on her characters and style. A friend has recommended others in the series, so I will give them a go - interested in seeing [...]

    27. Stephanie Plum-ishNo exploding cars, but two "smoking hot" guys in the words of the MC, and she gets to kiss them both in this 1st book. And of course the hottest one is supposedly mysterious, although he's simply of few words, none of which are "babe" said with twenty different meanings, thankfully. Not that I dislike Ranger, I just think Solomon needs to be his own man and his own character. So I'll check out the next book just to see how well it goes. You know we already love the premise.
