    Great fun Not the preppy fashion spree I was expecting to read Lacey is classy, and knows how to dress for the occasion, without repeated mention of hot pumps and mini skirts I was surprised at how interesting the book turned out to be, with just enough mystery and reluctant detective work by Lacey for the mystery fan in me Looking forward to tracking down other books in the series.

    Stars 3.5 5Recommendation An easy mystery read that is weaved through the world of fashion, style and dressing from the view point of a fashion stylist.Grave Apparel is the fifth installment in the Crime of Fashion series by Ellen Byerrum published in July of 2007 Lacey Smithsonian the fashion reporter The Eye Street Observer in Washington, D.C gets pulled into another mystery woven through the world of fashion and news But, this time it is too close to home or rather should I say to the paper w [...]

    Tightly written yarn about a Fashion Columnist for a third tier D.C newspaper who has a knack for attracting and catching killers Lacey Smithsonian works in an office filled to the brim with eccentric co workers one of whom gets herself whacked unconcious by a giant candy cane and the game s afoot, replete with homeless shepherd girls, crazed environmentalists, dodgy reporters, arrogant, self servings pols, grumpy cops and holiday cookies Ellen is an actual journalist with an Investigator s Li [...]

    Another great mystery solved I really enjoy this series Every time I read one of these, I want to get dressed for the job and solve a mystery The vintage feel and witty repartee take me into another place and that is exactly what a good book should do I also agree with Lacey about Christmas sweaters Although I feel it is a look that I am not willing to display, I am glad it make others happy I enjoy their whimsy and overwhelming cheer Let Felicity wear them, bake her cake, and eat it too.

    This book was received as part of the First Reads giveaway.Grave Apparel is one of Ellen Byerrum s earlier books in the Crime of Fashion series I had originally read it when it came out 6 years ago I enjoyed in then and had a great time rereading it over the holidays, especially with the holiday theme Lacey Smithsonian is a wonderful and rather believable sleuth with great fashion sense and a fun attitude I have enjoyed all the books in the series but feel this is one of the better ones.

    Christmas in July I always think it is Christmas in _ insert month here __ when a new book from an author I love comes out any month outside of December but I love Ellen Byerrum s Crimes of Mystery series and this one is set during Christmas The newest Lacey Smithsonian mystery is a treat and centers around Sweatergate, ha ha These fun mysteries literally make me laugh out loud and in this one we learn about Lacey s co Irker s at the Eye Fun read that made me HAPPY

    So I mostly liked this book It was kind of random at times, but I liked the holiday theme Still, I must say, I am sick of the conspiracy stuff Omg The deadfed stuff is just getting old and reptitive And Damon Newhouse, ugh No of him would make the series much better Sadly, I don t think I will get that lucky with the next book We shall see.

    Not the easiest book in the world to read I didn t like most of the characters except the girls and the main dead body was only slightly maimed concussed Probably my fault that I didn t enjoy it so muchwhat would possess me, a non matcher, to read a mystery about a fashion writer Either way, maybe the series isn t sooooo bad and I should have started with number one.

    While not my favorite cozy mystery series, I did jump in mid series with Grave Apparel and found it rather enjoyable I do wish that the main character had greater zest and or depth, as she sometimes feels two dimensional I look forward to starting at the beginning and getting to know these characters better.

    Sean Victor Donovan is just so sweet and knows the perfect timing to be the knight in shining armor of Lacey Smithsonian I just love book 5 than the other books It s really romance and mystery in one Two thumbs up

    I was having trouble with this series because I actually quit the book right before this one, but I m really happy I chose to continue reading the series because I loved this book Lacey got back to her ways and Felicity and Mac and the crew were all back to their usual selves.

    It s Christmas time for Lacey Smithsonian and she has another crime to solve This was a great book in this series The relationship between Lacey and Vic continues to grow I liked this book very much and can t wait to read to next book in the series.

    This has been my favorite in the series so far It has all the fun fluff and humor of the other books However, Byerrum added a layer of completity by shinning a light on the plight of homeless children.

    Delightful These books are delightful Ms Byerrum s combination of fashion, murder and possible conspiracies keep the reader guessing as well as entertained throughout I hope she keeps this series going for a long time.

    I read this book and it is a Christmas book so it would have been better if I read it during the winter season But overall, it was a good mystery Such a strong character and I always try to figure out the killer but could not get this one I really give it a 4.5 but we can t do halves.

    I feel this is the book in this series I have enjoyed most to date Particularly witty with some good referencing and a fun plot.

    Didn t finish reading Didn t really like it too much I thought it was boring Took too long to get to the real story.

    Generally, I am still really enjoying this series This boook took a little bit longer to get going than some of the earlier ones, but well worth it at the end.
