Only a few weeks into her new job as a private investigator, Lexi Graves thinks she may have bitten off more than she can chew with her first solo cases.
In between going undercover as a plush pony at a “Bronie” conference and following her cheating brother-in-law, she’s got a saboteur-turned-killer to catch and a missing woman to find. Two of her cases may be connected, but how?
There’s no short list of suspects to investigate, but the closer Lexi gets to the killer, the more her life is put in jeopardy. Trying to avoid being framed for a murder she didn’t commit, Lexi knows her luck is running out.
To make matters worse, her boyfriend, sexy detective, Adam Maddox, thinks she’s out of the PI game faster than she got into it. Her boss, the mysterious Solomon, meanwhile, hopes to get her between the sheets by night, as well as solving cases by day, and Lexi’s "just say no" resolve might not be as fortified as she believes.
All she wants is to be taken seriously and there’s only one way she can do that—solve the cases, no matter what.

Here is what I thought
This is the second in the Lexi Graves and it was just as fun as the first one. It’s a little more sexy than normal cozies but nothing real bad (just an FYI for die hard cozy fans).
Lexi is now part of Solomon’s PI team but the guys just sort of see her as Solomon’s eye candy even though she is dating Adam. It’s not to say that Lexie doesn’t still swoon a bit around Solomon but she is keeping it strictly business. She wants to prove herself in the business and she knows she can do it. They have meetings where they decide on what cases they are going to take as Solomon needs ones that pay good as he is just getting the business up and running, but Lexie really wants to take on the missing persons case that they put in the dump pile.
Solomon has a different job for her, he wants her to go undercover at a hotel because someone is sabotaging the place and so she does what he wants, but she also takes the missing person’s case on too without telling Solomon. As if that wasn’t enough her sister wants her to tale Ted because she thinks he is cheating on her.
Lexie has her plate full and her family thinks that she is temping again but it’s just her undercover gig, Adam was hoping it was real and a bit miffed when he finds out she was undercover. Even though her whole family is full of cops and he is a cop, he doesn’t like her being where she could get into trouble and she is kind of good at getting into a bit of trouble.
I really like Lexie but I love her friend Lucy who lives in the same apartment building she cracks me up. I really like all the side characters and as much as I like Adam I think I am more of a Solomon fan! *Swoon*
It has a really good mystery as I so thought it was someone else! 🙂 So if you like cozy mysteries then you should give this one a try.
Love me some Vanessa Daniels, enough said. 🙂
