When Private Investigator Lexi Graves receives an expensive bag from her new husband, she’s delighted… for all of five seconds. That’s exactly how long it takes her to realize it’s a fake. Then another fake bag turns up, along with an outraged mall manager that is desperate to find the culprit before the mall’s impeccable reputation for selling quality goods is tarnished. When the initial investigation takes a murderous turn, Lexi knows she has no time to lose. Going undercover would be easy if Lexi could convince anyone to talk. Then the FBI and Solomon Detective Agency collaborate to track down the culprits, and Lexi is further tasked with exposing the master mind behind the recent flood of fake goods. The counterfeiters, however, are smart enough to cover their tracks and the suspects are all seemingly innocent. Yet, one of them is a murderer… and ready to strike again.

Felt at times dialogue with no value was being added to bump up word count. Scattered story lines

Love the Lexi series. The characters, the humor, and the mystery. In this book we see Lexi dealing with the last (hopefully) of the issues that resulted from an incident a few books ago dealing with the lovely husband Solomon. She goes undercover in a beloved (haha) temp job dealing with fake bags (the horror) which Maddox and the FBI join in on while trying to find peace of mind for a mother and her two daughters. Lily enlists Lexi for help and Lexi's mom takes another class leading to hijinx with friends and family that keep you laughing while the mysteries keep you guessing. *arc received for honest review.

Some series and some book deserve 10 stars and In the Line of Ire of them. I loved In the Line of Ire, Lexi Graves #13, as I have loved every book that that Camilla Chafer has written. I love that Lexi is maturing realistically, but I also enjoy when she still gets into hilarious messes that balance the serious situations she often faces in her work. Her sparkle, wit, zaniness, and her very special family all contribute the draws that pulls me into her world every time. It is seldom that Lexi’s expertise outshines Solomon’s, but when it comes to accessories, she is the queen. A post honeymoon gift sends Lexi to the mall, but it sure isn’t for fun. Someone sold her amazing new husband and not so new boss a knockoff designer handbag, and Serena buys a purse to celebrate a success only to discover it has been switched for a fake, too. The mall manager hires the Solomon Detective agency to get to the bottom of the problem before words spreads. When they look for cheap bags that have been switch for the expensive originals, they find that it is not only handbags that have been knocked off. The FBI is drawn into the case and our old, and really hot, friend Maddox ends up working with Lexi. I had to laugh at his behind the scenes flirting that left her totally flummoxed, which was of course, his intention. On a more serious note, the newly-wed detective is still having trouble dealing with the trauma from the shooting, but in true Lexi fashion, she tries to play it off and refuses to give in. Book thirteen is sure not bad luck for author Camilla Chafer, this novel is as good as any in the series. I received an ARC of the novel from the author and my ebook purchase landed on my ereader last night!

This is a fun and entertaining story that opens with Lexi receiving a gift from her new husband of a very expensive purse.....except it's counterfeit. Before long, Lexi and the gang are in the midst of a full investigation and Lexi is surrounded by purses, trying to tell the real ones from the fakes, even while she also tries to help a young family being harassed in their own home. I found myself engaged by the story lines and turning pages quickly to see what happened next, even while literally laughing out loud at some of the humor. This novel is a great blend of a well told mystery blended with humor and a bit of romance. While this book is part of a series, this is a stand alone novel, however, the series is so good that you really owe to yourself to read them all. The author is on my must read authors' list.

The sign of a great story is when you don’t want it to end. Camilla Chafer’s latest installment in the Lexi Graves series is just that. I love that she incorporates a main mystery and secondary mystery for us in the same book. She infuses humor in the form of family and friends as well as romance with John Solomon and personal struggles that continue as a result of a traumatic event from a couple of books back. For this story, Lexi is once again undercover to help solve a counterfeit purse ring. It seems harmless enough until a murder victim is discovered by our heroine. Add a stalking victim as a second case, and a Purple Monster to track down for personal reasons. The result is another great installment you’ll not want to end. I am already excited to read the next one.
