    1. Initial Thoughts: This is a nice, light young adult read. It's geared towards fans of Nancy Drew and other female detectives and there is an unsolved murder mystery that Jex and her friends want to solve. It's an easy read and I enjoyed the quotes from famous TV/movie/book female detectives. I think that this will appeal to younger readers. If you suspend belief, you'll enjoy it more. The Review:Jex Malone was a fun little read and it brought back memories of reading Nancy Drew books late into t [...]


    2. I received my complimentary copy of Jex Malone by author C.L. Gaber via Net Galley. I really enjoyed this read, as I have always loved my Nancy Drew mysteries, and the comparison fits well with main character Jex. The plot was ever growing, and a great young adult page turner. I read and review numerous books at a time, but this particular book I read straight through to the conclusion. I thought this book was not only written and edited well, but also had steady pace and succeeded to finish lin [...]


    3. My copy was provided by Netgalley.Jex has lived the life of the child of divorced parents for ten years. After her mother divorced her father, Jex has lived with her mother for ten years, hardly making any contact with her real father. Yet he's making her spend the summer with him after a judge declares that Jex has to visit her father after Jex's mother ignored several warnings that Jex's father had visitation rights. So now Jex has to spend the whole summer with her father, but she does find w [...]


    4. I was sent an early copy of Jex Maloned I LOVED IT!!! Jex is a really fun heroine who has a major adventure in both Las Vegas and Hollywood. I loved that Jex had real life problems. Her parents got divorced ten years ago, but she never knew her father growing up. Now, he's making her spend the summer with him. He's a top detective and sort of a jerk. So Jex shows him up and tries to solve his hardest cold casea missing girl from the neighborhood. I loved that Jex struggles with meeting new frien [...]


    5. A new detective is in town and her name is Jex Malone. Along with her fellow Drew-Ids, Jex seeks to solve the case that ripped her parent’s marriage apart. The friends couldn’t be more different from one another; Jex is the sarcastically sassy one, Deva is the fashionista with funds, Cissy is the shy one, and Nat is the brains. Together they create an unstoppable cold case-solving agency. Jex has lived with her mother for most of her life, successfully escaping the court-mandated summers wit [...]


    6. I bought this book at a convention last week and I met the authors and had my copy signed, so I was very excited to read this book. I loved everything about this book, except the ending. I liked the endingI just had suspected it a few times throughout the book. Given that the book is also aimed at young adults and teens, the ending is fitting. Although reading the part when Jex was in the neighbours house, I was scared lol. I had a hard time putting this book down and I really wanted to find out [...]


    7. Finally there's something for younger readers who like a bit of sleuthing or detective angles but feel the tried and true books to be too "old". This one has a fresh feel to it and offers an easy enjoyable read for the YA audience. The catchphrases and references are current and the writing is well done. As typical of YA novels some things happen easier than an older reader might expect but don't let this deter you from reading and enjoying this book. I received an ARC through Strategies in exch [...]


    8. My love for reading was acquired during my youth and reading books from the Young Adult genre always seemed to be very cutting edge. Jex Malone delivers all of the excitement, angst and cheekiness of teen life at it's finest. C.L. Garber and V. C. Stanley have certainly created a modern day Nancy Drew in Jex Malone. With fun interactions, quirky kid humor and CSI crime-solving investigation techniques, be prepared for a mystery complete with storyline twists, turns and secrets that will keep you [...]


    9. I thought this was a great easy read, something you can sit down and just devour in a couple of days. It was a great female detective story about the bond of friendship, broken homes, and a lost girl to bring every one together. It was definitely worth reading.



    10. I received Jex Malone from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I requested Jex Malone because the description (which I had to cut for length above) says that Jex “could be the Nancy Drew for a new generation.” I love Nancy Drew, so I was all over this book.Jex, however, is the poor man’s Nancy Drew. Jex’s real name is Jessica but I guess Jessica Malone isn’t a catchy title. The above description is a lot more exciting than the book. Nancy would have been appalled at Jex and her [...]


    11. my thoughts – Jessica Jex is a seventeen year-old girl that is the product of a broken family. She lives with her mom in New Jersey and her father lives in Nevada. Jex doesn’t have a real relationship with her father and has used many many excuses to not go and spend the summers with him that she is suppose to per the custody agreement that was formulated during her parents divorce. This summer however, she isn’t able to get out of it and is forced by a judge to go to her fathers and s [...]


    12. Rating: 3I won a copy of this book for an honest review. This will never effect how I like or rate a book.In the middle months I seem to go through a bit of book lag. Or at least that's the only explanation I can find for why it took me so long to finish this book since normally it would of been a pretty quick read for me and of course should of been. My lack of reading wasn't because of the book (this time), I just didn't really feel like reading. So I do feel bad for this book on that count an [...]


    13. A famous case. A missing girl. If they find her, will they be heroes? Or dead?Bored out of her mind during a summer with her police detective father in Las Vegas, Jessica (aka "Jex") Malone starts doing what she does best--snooping. When she meets three new friends who share her passion for crime, from the geek to the fashionista, suddenly, the stifling desert days don't seem so long.Her dad is never around, just like when her parents were married. But Jex's crew, the Drew-Ids, take the pledge o [...]


    14. Review first appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy via Merit Press in exchange for an honest reviewJex Malone by C.L. Gaber & V.C. Stanley is a novel that takes place in the heat of Las Vegas. Gaber and Stanley's mystery involves some serious sleuthing on the part of four girls, a father-daughter relationship that needs some serious mending, and a mysterious boy who somehow, ends up being a love interest. In all, this is a pretty fun book. Jex, the protagonist, is adamant to [...]


    15. We follow the story of Jex Malone through this novel, she is the product of divorce and lives with her Mother full time in New Jersey, and her Father lives in Las Vegas. She has to go and spend the summer with her Father, and she is not happy about it, even tries going to the Judge in the case and asking if she can not go, this meeting does not work in her favour, and she is ordered to go and spend the summer with him.When she gets there, she is immediately introduced to three new girls that liv [...]


    16. Check out my full review on my blog, SleepsOnTablesJex Malone was such a fun read. It brought back memories of playing detective and watching and reading Nancy Drew and other crime novels. One really cool thing about it was that it made you reminisce about all of the awesome sleuthy ladies at each chapter. How is this possible? Well each chapter opens with a "Famous Girl Detective Quote." These famous girl detective range from the classics like Agatha Christie to Nancy Drew to Brenda from The Cl [...]


    17. Jex has lived with her professor mom ever since her parents got divorced. She wants nothing to do with her dad, a homicide detective who lives in Las Vegas. She's supposed to spend every summer with him, but so far, she's been able to make up excuses to blow him off every year. Jex's mom has had enough, so she takes Jex before a judge who orders her to go.It doesn't take long for Jex to find some friends once she's in Vegas, and it seems that they are a little obsessed with a local tragedy - the [...]


    18. 17 year old Jessica Malone (yet another curly redhead) has lived with her mother in New Jersey since her parents’ divorce when she was small. She’s supposed to spend summers with her father in Las Vegas, but has managed to avoid it until now—she and her father haven’t really connected, and she has no warm feelings for him. A court order, though, forces her to the desert and a summer with her father, Detective Malone. Jessica—whom her father calls Jex—isn’t expecting much, and is no [...]


    19. I (shamefully) judge books by their covers. So, when I received my free copy of Jex Malone in the mail for review, I didn’t expect to like it. The cover didn’t speak to me, the graphics looked slightly pixelated, and I assumed that little thought had gone into designing it – so, naturally, I didn’t have great expectations for what I would find in between.I couldn’t have been more wrong. I loved this book, and was surprised to find that there came a point where I didn’t want to put it [...]


    20. Jex Malone is the latest in a long line of girl detectives (although I think Nat deserves most of the credit). To be 100% honest, I never read Nancy Drew as a kid (I was too busy reading Saddle Club and Pony Pals), but I did find myself enjoying this one.Let's start with my favourite part of this book: diversity. While our heroine Jex and her new crush Cooper may have both been white, Jex's friends did show some diversity. Deva's parents are Indian, Nat's family is Jamaican and I think Cissy is [...]


    21. An entertaining mystery with just enough serious to ensure that I cared about the characters while maintaining a sunny weekend read kind of vibe.Jex’s police detective dad became so consumed with a teen’s disappearance that it busted up their family, as a result, Jersey girl Jex barely knows her dad, and she’s none too thrilled to spend the summer with him in sweltering small town Nevada.However, Jex’s summer isn’t looking like it’ll be such a snore once she meets three neighborhood [...]


    22. I won Jex Malone on a giveaway via Net Galley. Summary: The story focuses on Jex, a sassy 17 year old girl, who goes to live with her father in Las Vegas for the summer. While there, Jex and her new friends set off to discover what happened to Patty Matthews, a girl who went missing when Jex was a child. The book not only focuses on Jex’s attempt to solve the Patty Matthews case, but also on her reestablishing a relationship with her father. My Review: Jex Malone was a fun summer read. The boo [...]


    23. Jessica "Jex" Malone is not happy about being shipped off to her dad's house for the summer. After her parents' messy divorce, the judge orders her to live with her father, a police detective, for the summer. Jex is sure that it's going to be horrible and boring. Luckily, she meets new friends and being as nosy and curious as she is, she and her new friends decide to see if they can solve one of her father's cold cases. Hey, at least it's something to do!This was a really fun read and I think it [...]


    24. The simplicity that makes up a Nancy Drew mystery is just too much for today’s generation to handle. It’s not the poor girl’s fault she isn’t the apple of every tween girl’s detective eye nowadays. Nancy just hasn’t aged with her audience. She doesn’t have the social media sites or the cell phone or any of the fancy gadgets that sleuths use today. Nancy’s decline in popularity begs the question: who, if anyone, can live up to today’s expectations of a teenage investigator? C.L. [...]


    25. I'm so happy I read this one! As a little girl, I devoured every Nancy Drew book I could get my hands on, and I loved the mystery and suspense. Jex is a modern-day Nancy Drew, complete with iphones, fashion, and a little teen-parent drama that teenagers today can relate to. The character development is rich, with four main teenage girls who have very different personalities. They are loyal, funny, and struggling for independence from their parents. I fell in love with the main character, and by [...]


    26. This book wasn't completely bad, but it wasn't completely good either. It was what this two star rating means: okay. There was a lot of things that bugged me about this book. The plot was REALLY slow for the first hundred pages and the introduction of Cissy, Nat and Deva was kind of confusing because they kept talking and the dialogue was hard to follow a couple of times. Also, the. book. kept. doing. stuff. like. this. THIS is what made me cringe the most because it kept putting periods next to [...]


    27. Jex Malone has avoided visiting her father every summer since her parents split up, but this time she’s court ordered to go visit. Now Jex is in Las Vegas while her father is working cases for his job as a police detective. So Jex starts to snoop around the house while he’s gone and finds files on Patty Matthews, a girl who went missing thirteen years ago. When she meets Cissy, Nat, and Deva, they discuss the case and decide to form their own investigative agency – the Drew-IDs. They spend [...]


    28. Jex Malone is a witty mystery with unique voice and relatable characters.Jex has to spend the summer with her estranged detective father in Las Vegas, far from the Jersey life she knows. When she meets the girls in her temporary neighborhood, they tell her of the unsolved missing Patty Matthews case that has haunted Jex’s father since it occurred 13 years ago. She and her new friends Deva, Cissy, and Nat decide to create the Drew-Ids, a kickass group of girls who solve crimes together. The mor [...]


    29. Jex Malone is a YA mystery but a delight for anyone to read.Jex is spending the summer in Las Vegas with her father who is a police detective and she is not at all happy about it. The prospect of a long, hot and boring summer begins changes drastically when Jex makes friends with three teens in her neighborhood. One of the reasons Jex’s parents divorced was because of a case of a missing girl that the detective became obsessed with and could never solve. When Jex and her friends find the case [...]
