No Questions Asked (Lexi Carmichael Mystery #12) by Julie Moffett


No Questions Asked

Kindle Edition, 448 pages
Expected publication: March 23rd 2020 by Carina Press




Goodreads synopsis: 
One last fling (with danger) before the ring?

Nothing’s that simple when you’re a geek girl. Julie Moffett’s beloved Lexi Carmichael mystery series returns with No Questions Asked.

Lexi Carmichael: saving scientists one snake at a time.

Weddings aren’t my thing—never have been. But eloping would break my mother’s heart, especially since the president of the United States put in a good word for me with his daughter’s wedding planner. I’m going to have the wedding of the year…whether I like it or not.

Before we can say I do, Slash and I are flying off to the Brazilian rain forest. Our mission: stop hackers from stealing a vaccine that could save millions of lives. I thought it’d be easy, but from the moment we step off the plane, I’m up to my neck in trouble.

After an attack by drug-runners, being kidnapped and discovering that the bad guy is even worse than we’d imagined, I’m pretty sure someone in our group is working for the enemy. And they’re succeeding. I’ll have to use all my geek skills to stop the bad guys if I’m going to make it home in time to tie that knot.

5 Stars

This is the twelfth book in the Lexi Carmichael mystery series by Julie Moffett.

The one thing you can guarantee in a Lexi Carmichael book is that you will always get double the dose of action than in any other book of a similar caliber. Wow. What a thrill ride this was.

Lexi and Slash are getting married. But before the day comes, they are whisked away to the jungles of Brazil where they meet up with drug runners, a little known tribe and a group of scientists who want to secure their malaria vaccine. The vaccine is a groundbreaking discovery that will work on a segment of the population that the normal vaccine cannot help.

This story never stops. When Slash comes in to save the day and have a fight with the king of the indigenous tribe for Lexi’s hand in marriage, that had to be my favorite part of the book. How romantic was that?

I couldn’t help but laugh at Lexi throughout the book. Every stumbling block led her to a strange success. Somehow the tribe thought her to be a descendent of the Amazonian warriors. Too funny. Lexi rolls with the punches no matter what happens to her. We could all learn a lot from following Lexi’s example.

Such a fun book. I totally recommend this entire series.

If you love a good mystery/cozy mystery/suspense book, you need to pick this one up. You won’t be disappointed. I was hooked all the way through. Good stuff!


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
