A Lexi Carmichael Mystery: Italy might seem like a long way to go to hide after a disastrous date. But when sexy uberhacker Slash (no, that’s not his real name) asks me to go with him to Rome on an investigation, the timing is sort of perfect. My messed up love life becomes the least of my worries though, after the dead body, the near-kidnapping, and the discovery of a top-secret encrypted file that even I can’t hack. With time running out, there’s only one thing to do: call in the legendary Zimmerman twins and my best fluent-in-Italian friend, Basia, to crack the code. Now if only someone could help me solve the mystery of whether Slash is flirting, or if all the kissing is just one of those “when in Rome” things… But when we finally uncover the secret someone would kill to keep, it’s up to me to solve the case and save the lives of my best friends. Just another week in the life of geek-girl Lexi Carmichael. Read about Lexi’s previous adventures in No One Lives Twice, No One To Trust and No Money Down.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This quick read had me hook from the start. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen between Lexi and Slash. Let alone the stolen money. The author does a wonderful job of really setting the scene and making everything just vivid enough so you can picture it all. I wasn’t bummed to find out this was in a series because I feel like you don’t necessarily need to read them in order cause the author does a wonderful job of explaining everything you need to know. If you’re in the mood, for a quick 4 star read that you won’t put down, that’s full of mystery and excitement, then pick up any of the Lexi Carimachael mysteries, xo!
