Geek girl Lexi Carmichael has tackled her share of formidable tasks, but nothing quite as daunting as serving as maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding
When I agreed to stand by my best friend, Basia, on her big day, I had no idea what I was in for. Bouquets and unflattering evening wear I can handle. But between disgruntled dates, a beach venue and suspicious packages, what else can go wrong? Oh, right—my parents don’t know I’ve moved in with Slash. Oops?
Thankfully, I’ve got everything semi under control, at least as far as Basia and Xavier know. They can leave for their honeymoon happy, knowing Elvis, Slash and I will keep things safe at home.
Meanwhile, Elvis and Xavier’s boss at ComQuest has asked X-Corp—well, me—to take a quick trip to retrieve a sensitive company package from the British Virgin Islands. No hacking involved. Just show up, accept the package and bring it home safely. A cushy assignment, and a safe one. Right?
Wrong. Things start to unravel the minute I set foot on the boat to the island. Before I know it, I’m up to my neck in thugs, sand and trouble. I’m going to have to work fast to stop the bad guys before the sun sets for good on this unexpected beach vacation…
And don’t miss the rest of Julie Moffett’s Lexi Carmichael Mysteries: No One Lives Twice, No One To Trust, No Money Down, No Place Like Rome, No Biz Like Showbiz, No Test for the Wicked, No Woman Left Behind, No Room for Error, No Strings Attached and No Living Soul, available now from Carina Press!

Well Lexi is at it again. This time she agrees. A “a little black cloud” follows her everywhere and she has a spread sheet of data to prove it.
Xavier and Basia are getting married. And Lexi and Xavier are just trying to make it through their wedding duties without having too many panic attacks. With both of them out of their comfort zones, that is easier said than done.
A mix up with a wedding gift causes Lexi and Basia to be held hostage. Of course Slash comes to the rescue and the bad guys are caught. Then Elvis has girl trouble, a pelican interrupts the wedding and Lexi’s parents get upset about her new living arrangements. Well you can say it is adventurous day for the gang.
Basia and Xavier go on their honeymoon, to a secret location, Lexi gets back to her job and unpacking her new home. Her first day back at work finds Elvis’s boss hiring her to retrieve a package. It is a really suspicious task, but Finn and her agree that it should be a simple task and decide to send her.
When on her mission to retrieve the package, she starts looking into a shipping company that is losing packages. Could be a simple inside job? But when the trail leads to where she is it seems to be too much of a coincidence.
As she looks into the mysterious packaging issue, she runs into a bit of unexpected trouble. The kind of trouble that can get her killed. Yep! She has a black cloud watching over her. Can Lexi save herself and protect those she loves?
OMG! OMG! OMG! What an ending! Leaving it open for another amazing story. Can’t wait. This book was soooo exciting. I could not put it down. Not even for a minute. It was a roller coaster ride of thrills and it was so much fun. I swear these books just get better and better. I thought maybe they might dull a little when Lexi made her love decision, but Julie Moffett has not disappointed me. She keeps the books interesting with all the adventures that Lexi gets into.
I have to admit I am falling in love more and more with Lexi and Slash’s relationship. It is developing beautifully. I love it when he calls her “Cara” and speaks Italian to her. So romantic. LOVE IT!!! Swoon worthy!
The characters keep developing more and more with each book. And the adventures get more exciting. This one had me biting my nails on the edge of my seat. Again, could not put it down. It flowed so smoothly and at a steady pace. I am getting excited just thinking about everything that happened and thinking how the next book is going to go. My imagination is running amok.
Julie Moffett is one of my absolute favorite authors. I have read almost all of her books! I am never disappointed. I have to say though out of all her books the Lexi Carmichael Mysteries are my favorite. I love the geek aspect of it. They are full of action and adventure, love and mystery. And let me tell you they have the best characters. I am so in love with them. My favorites are Lexi and Elvis with Slash coming in third. I secretly hope one day Elvis and Lexi will wind up together. Hey a girl can dream can’t she. If you haven’t read this series then you must, because you are missing out on an adventure of a lifetime.
