Travel and adventure go hand in hand in this Lexi Carmichael episode. Yes, the geeks are back and are making being a geek cool. International intrigue match up with a questionable love life when Lexi agrees to help Slash figure out who robbed the Vatican of millions of dollars. Is all that kissing because he’s interested or because it seems Italians kiss a lot? But, it’s so much more than that confusing Lexi, she’s found encrypted files that she can’t open. I found myself laughing and cheering as I stayed glued to each page wondering what next. I was amazed at how things worked out. Can I say that Lexi has become one of my heroes? If you like a fantastic story with mystery and where the geeks can figure it all out, this is your book. While part of a series, and you really should read all of the books because they are awesome, you don’t have to read the previous books to thoroughly enjoy this one.
Lexi isn’t sure how to date but she’s agreed to go to the opera with Slash. She does know that it’s not proper to rush out part way through the opera so when Slash leaves, Lexi knows something is up. Soon, Slash is hiring her to help him discover who took money for the Vatican and framed his uncle. This entails a trip to Rome and more adventures than even Lexi could imagine. The biggest problem isn’t who stole the money but can they stay alive!
Awesome book that I can’t recommend enough. Now, when does the next Lexi adventure come out?
Italy might seem like a long way to go to hide after a disastrous date. But when sexy überhacker 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.
