When Private Investigator Lexi Graves’ police lieutenant brother, Garrett, asks her for help on a missing persons cold case he’s been instructed to close, she’s happy to poke around. After all, it won’t take long to prove if the woman he’s checking up on is an impostor or the real deal.

A fabulous addition to the Lexi Graves series.

It is best to read the previous books in the series to get the best from this book as although each book contains an independent case to be solved, the series follows the lives of Lexi and her friends and family and their relationships develop during the series.
The case is discussed in the blurb for the book so I won't restate that but while she's investigating we catch up with Lily, who has baby Poppy now, and it's hilarious and so realistic and Li

I love how this series has progressed! Ready, Aim, Under Fire still has those wonderfully hilarious moments that Camilla Chafer does so well but Lexi's skills have matured as she has. The plot is solid and complex mystery but relationships, humor, and romance are still vital to the outstanding quality of the story. I have a great family but like Lily, I wouldn't mind being part of the insanity and loyalty of Lexi's family. And who would object to spending time with Solomon or Maddox! I am so gla ...more

I love this series, I do. But this is not my favourite installment of it.

The mystery is pretty good. Lexi’s brother Garrett, a detective, asks her for help with a case that has bugged him about a missing woman who vanished 10 years ago and was reported by her landlord of all people. Her parents always seemed relatively unconcerned and over the years they received sporadic postcards and emails from their daughter who claimed to be travelling her way around overseas. Then one day she just returned

Ready, Aim, Under Fire (Lexi Graves Mysteries, 10)

by Camilla Chafer

Oh my Camilla has done it again. Bravo! This series is amazing. Each book is just as exciting as the last. Camilla keeps the story flowing smoothly through each new book. Always picking right up where the last left off. Her plots are always flawless with comedy, sexiness, romance, drama and mystery rolled all up in a perfect story. All the characters are unique and have great backgrounds built up. I love how the main Character Le

Of all the Lexi Graves books "Ready, Aim, and Under Fire" is my least favorite read. This book doesn't really more the overall series plot forward and quite honestly feels as though it is just a @filler" or book used to extend the series. This read focuses least on the personal lives of the characters and more on the private investigation aspects.

Garret, Lexi's police detective brother, asks for her assistance as a private investigator to figure out what is going on in a suspicious missing perso

I've followed the Lexi Graves series for a while, and have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Chafer continually manages to balance light-hearted witticisms with well-rounded characters and plots which keep me turning pages. In 'Ready, Aim, Under Fire', the mystery Lexi had to solve was an interesting conundrum, and I commend Chafer for her work. I remained engaged until the last second, and never fully convinced myself I knew 'whodunnit'! Even the mystery itself was a head scratcher, and when it be ...more

Lexie Graves can always be counted on for a couple things. 1,) She is tenacious! 2.) She is going to get into trouble along the way. 3.) She will do anything for her family. 4.) She's going to look cute while she does whatever needs to be done!

I enjoyed this book and the fact that Lexie was giving her all to help her brother. Garret hasn't had such an important part in a book before. I think it is fantastic that Lexie cares so much about her family and is willing to jump in to help them as neede

Another winning novel!!!

Ready, Aim, Under Fire is another great installment of the Lexi Graves Series. I love her investigating style and fashionable nature. Lexi is asked to investigate an old case for her brother Garrett. This turns into the biggest, most confusing cases Lexi has had to deal with yet. Yes, cases! With her non-law enforcement way of thinking outside of the box, Lexi dives head first into her missing persons case. There were times that I laughed out loud at the humor the author

LOVED this book! This is a great series and this book proves that each novel is better than the one that preceded it. Lexi is a PI working at the firm her fiance owns when she is asked by her police detective brother to look into a case that has him stumped. Technically, it's a closed case, but something feels off and leaves him uncomfortable.

Lexi dives in and agrees that something is off. Before long, she's deep in the case and finding oddities - then things really escalate when a witness is mu
Number 10 already! I still like this series by Camilla Chafer. The mysteries are cozy and I like Lexi and her big cop family. Her BFF Lily had her baby in the last book but she is willing to help Lexi with her case, even when it doesn't work out that well.

Lexi and Solomon are getting married and her mom has made several binders so she can start planning! Maddox is back and has a heartfelt conversation with Lexi that was way overdue. Although I like Maddox, I don't really understand his presence

I really enjoyed reading this book.
We find Lexi assisting her brother Garrett on a missing persons case which is due to be closed, and both of them feel something is not right.
There are familiar characters. Maddox is back, and Lily gets back into helping Lexi, well sort of! And of course Lexi's mother is on her case about preparing for her wedding to Solomon.
The book is well written, providing some nice twists, and some emotional scenes.
Camilla writes her books well, grammar, structure and li

5 STARS!!!

I love this series! In Ready, Aim, Under Fire, you have all the loveable characters and snappy comebacks that we have fell in love with in the previous 9 Lexi Graves books.
Lexi and Garrett team up to solve a "not so missing anymore" case. We see how Lily is taking to motherhood and Lexi's mom is deep in wedding binders! Lol!
What I'd love to see in the next LG book is more maturity and forwardnees in Lexi's character, we get a little but she never really confronts her beau on anything

This is a great installment on a wonderful series.

In this book Lexi is working on a cold case with her brother Garrett, a case of a missing person who may or may not actually be missing. When a person close to the case with suspicions of their own is murdered before Lexi can talk to them it just adds to the mystery.

There is a mommy Lily, Maddox asking questions, Solomon almost answering questions, an impromptu bonfire, and wedding plans that need to be made.

I am ready for the next book. Waiting

An Engaging Mystery!!

Ready, Aim, Under Fire is a finely tuned whodunnit with an intriguing plot & fascinating characters. This time around Lexi's brother Garrett asks for help in a cold case involving a missing woman who has reappeared after 10 years. Along the way Lexi becomes involved in a murder which may or may not connect to Garrett's cold case. Lots of humor is provided by best friend Lily trying to coping with new motherhood. Sizzle is provided by Lexi's new fiancé John Solomon, who w

Great series! 🙋

Lexi is always getting into trouble with her cases, but she ALWAYS gets the bad guy. One of my favourite things about this book was the dialogue between Lexi and Maddox. They pulled at my heart stings in this one. If you have read the series you'll understand.
In Ready, Aim, Under Fire Garrett needs Lex's help with a cold case. Her Mom is pestering her about her wedding to Solomon. Lots of questions about Solomon. Makes me wonder what the author has planned for him.
Great series! H

Always a great read!

Lexi is always a great read that I devour and hate to end. She gets involved in a missing but not ,is so g persons case and the game is on! Lily makes some appearances and she's hilarious as ever. Garrett gets more spotlight and I enjoyed his relationship with Lexi. Maddox has some time and what he has to say, makes us all question who Solomon really is. I hope we get more answers soon.

I need More Lexi Graves

This was a great book and a twisted story about trading places gone wrong, greedy parents, and a bff looking out for someone who didn’t want to be looked out for. I love the inclusion of all the crazy members of Lexi’s family and the tension of a love triangle between Lexi, John and Adam. Is Adam ever going to give up or is Lexi going to loose both men from her life. I need a HER

Love Lexi , as usual!

I really love this character, I could read about her adventures until she's collecting a pension! LOL. In this story ,Lexi solves a mystery involving identity theft and murder while pushing away niggling questions about Solomon's past. I hope nothing derails this couple in any future books, I love them together. Definitely a great read, another A+!

The Lexi Graves' adventures just keep getting better. There's a certain bridezilla that you just want to smack a couple of times and tell to back off. LOVE Lexi and Solomon.

Leading to something big.

Who is Solomon??
Lexi is smart but she takes forever to catch on sometimes. Seriously, someone literally called Marley, Marley and it still didn't click. For the love of God woman.
