That's me, Lexi Carmichael, a reformed hacker who was gainfully employed by the National Security Agency. But a series of extraordinary events led me to leave government life behind for a fresh start with a brand-new company and an incredibly sexy boss, Finn Shaughnessy. It may not be kosher to have the hots for your boss, but he seems to

Just as good as the first, but a bit shorter. Love how easy it is to get into this series.

Are you wanting a fun and light-hearted mystery to read ? Are you a fan of all those Spy TV Shows like The Mentalist, Covert Affairs ? Fancy yourself a female version of Frost from Rizzolli and Isles?.
Get ready for more Lexi Carmichael mayhem in Book #2 No One to Trust - Lexi is now working as a Private Investigator and her hacking skills are the best, though in this up and coming case , we see that it's Lexi's skill at Cryptology - a subject I've always wanted to try that will be of importance

I LOVED No One to Trust! My friends have been recommending this series for a while and I really intended to get to it sooner. Why do we wait when people whose taste we trust recommend a book? I love the people I met in the book and enjoyed the well plotted mystery.

Lexi is on her first case for Finn's new security company and when a specialist in nano-technology disappears after his partner is killed in what is declared and accident it has some real twists that challenge even his amazing team. Th

I requested this book from netGalley, not realizing it was book 2 of the Lexi Carmichael series. I immediately found book 1 and read through that one very quickly; totally loving it.

Book 2 was great! Lexi is a fantastic character: smart, nerdy, quick thinking and also more sexy than she knows. She's like the ugly duckling turning into the swan over time. Everyone around her knows how great a friend she is, and how beautiful...everyone but her. She views herself as rather plain, nerdy and stick-l

Very rarely do I enjoy a sequel more than its original counterpart, but in this case, I did. I really liked No One Lives Twice, but I loved this one.

Lexi is back and working for a different company now.. Her new boss happens to be the hot Irish guy she worked with and handcuffed in the first one. Also back in the game is Slash and Elvis.. both men with possible interests in Lexi..

But Lexi doesn't have self confidence. Enter slutty red dresses, a stripper, and a bikini wax.... All I can say abou

I read this book after reading No One Lives Twice. If you're thinking about reading No One to Trust first, this probably isn't the review for you.

That being said, one of the things I loved best about this book was the growth of the characters. Yes, the comedy had me grinning from ear to ear from the moment I read the first line. The page-turning action kept me up late at night, promising myself sleep after just one more chapter... But it is the characters that hold this book (and this series) t

Recommends it for: People who like fuzzy chick lit and cozy mysteries
Book 2 in the Lexi Carmichael series.

I was a bit disappointed with the length of the book at only 199 pages. That's not really a "Book" its more a short story to me. But, it seems the first book of the series is the only somewhat full length book. Oh well, I cant change it so moving on..

The series is very much a "Fuzzy chick lit/Cozy mystery" where bad things only happen to the bad guys and the good guys always trump and are good for quick fun reads.

It started off pretty slow and boring, but

No One To Trust is a great mystery combined with a little romance and a whole lot of smart chick empowerment, with a generous dollop of laugh-out-loud humor. Lexi Carmichael is a breath of fresh air - she is smart, funny, self-deprecating, and insecure. As a former computer hacker and a supersmart woman with a photographic memory, Lexi is also socially awkward. Adept at reading computer code, she has difficulty reading social cues, which results in her brusque (but charming) honesty. In a world ...more

As always, I'm grateful to Carina Press for the review copy of this e-book.

This is my first time reading Julie Moffett. She doesn't write urban fantasy or paranormal romance; instead, she writes chick lit mysteries and historical romances, two genres I read more occasionally. I wasn't entirely certain what to expect from No One To Trust but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. It's written with a fun, light tone that sort of reminds me of Sarah Strohmeyer's Bubbles books
So this self-proclaimed geeky girl who admits to having zero social skills and being completely out of touch with her sexuality some how ends up at a strip club and saves the day by doing a dance routine to cover for an absent stripper and gets the entire crowd all hot and bothered. Oh, and just so happens to randomly run into a Catholic priest she knows who's walking by the parking lot as she exits the club. Moffett surpasses my willingness to suspend disbelief several times in this book. The s ...more

Lexi used to work for a government agency and has exceptional hacking and research skills. Finn Shaughnessy, a lawyer she'd recently met, has started an intelligence and security company and hired Lexi. Their first case is an employer who wants to find his employee Darren, a genius researcher, who has disappeared. Lexi has no idea who Darren is but for some reason he has left clues pointing to Lexi.

I left the last book (book one in the series) with an affinity for the suave and oh, so Irish, Finn Shaughnessy. I mean, just think Irish James Bond, and you have Finn to a T.
Finn has started his new cyber security company and their first client is looking for a famous researcher who has disappeared. He is a geek, and since Lexi is all about the geek world, she knows exactly who he is.
Lexi is the head of the InfoSec division. And in reality, I think that mean she is her own department. There

Lexi, book two, delivered…

Great thing, no dull moments at all. I like the new job and how the characters remained true to their personality. I was a little skeptical as to the "Why Lexi?" plot, but at the end when the "Why?" was outed, I totally bought it. Good job.

I'm not sure I bought into the gift from Basia. Seemed a little over the top, but the Slash rescue totally rocked.

I think the book could have been about ten more pages long so that when the ending unfolded and all the geek stuff was e

Cozy mystery. I enjoyed. A quick read. I did not realize that this is not the first book in the series. I feel compelled to go back and read the first book. I liked the characters. I enjoyed the storyline. I enjoyed the computer geek hacker component. Since this is not my background I am grateful that it was written in a way that built intrigue and I could follow the story line. I like the slow progression of the potential romantic story lines. There were some scenes that were too cliche. The ge ...more

No One to Trust is book #2 in Julie Moffett's Lexi Carmichael Mystery series.

Lexi Carmichael, ex hacker for the NSA, is starting hernew careerwith sexy irishman FinnShaughnessy and his upstart security company.

Lexi is a code breaking genius with a photographic memory and zero social skills. Her inability to pick up on social cues makes for a lot of laugh out loudscenes and gets her into situations that someone with a tad less sm

At first I thought it was a little boring and that I was going to write a review that it was a sweet, lighthearted piece that I could give or take. Good summer reading, total chick lit, which I like just to clean my pallet a bit when I'm reading lots of fantasy, thriller or YA novels. But it got much better by the last third of the book. It was funny and charming. I found myself laughing so hard in a couple of places I was crying and had to reread in order to get through it properly.

Single sentence summary: Nanotechnology researcher, Darren, has gone missing and the only clues are coded message to computer security nerd, Lexi Carmichael, who is the only one that can break the code and find him.

This was a fun and quick romantic mystery that had me giggling almost the entire way through. The characters were engaging and fun. I liked the technology side of the mystery because I thought it showed a reflection of the world as it is now. We live in a high tech world and I think

Lexi Carmichael is back. Previously introduced in No One Lives Twice, the young hacker has left the National Security Agency and now works for a private company that’s owned by attractive Irishman Finn Shaunnessy and another owner.

Lexi’s first job for her new company involves her personally. Darren Greening, a young genius who is the forerunner on theories of nanotechnology, is missing. Given this comes just months after the death of his partner in a car accident, the company that Darren works f
After having read Moffett's previous book in the LC series, I was pretty excited to give the second entry a try. There was just something addicting about Lexi's adventures that keept drawing me back in and I'm glad to say that entry #2 is no exception.

I don't know much about the hacking world, but I do know that I enjoyed this book greatly. I love Lexi and I love the situations she gets herself into. She's a feisty heroine and we finally get to see her hands get a little dirtier than they did i

Ok, so this is fluffy chick-lit and will probably be my dirty little secret (shhh!! don't tell!!). It was, however a light, humorous romance/mystery with a ditzy, naive, nerdy, yet adorably sexy female hacker leading lady. I like a book that makes me laugh, especially if it can make me laugh out loud, and I got a few chuckles out of No One to Trust.

The romance was light with the expected love triangle, or was it a quadrangle? I'm really not sure, but I ended up rooting for Finn and Slice, oops S

This book was SO MUCH FUN. Poor Lexi! The author puts her through so much hell! I laughed so much, and I've never read such a raunchy book that could also be considered a "sweet" romance.

In this novel, Lexi is working for Finn, and their first client wants them to do something that's more like private detection than computer security. In the meantime, Finn has asked Lexi on an official date, and it's probably the worst date you could imagine. Just when you think it has gotten too awful, it gets
No One to Trust was no where near as good as No One Lives Twice, unfortunately. This book just did not unravel nearly as much as the first book did. It was still a good mystery, but it was not nearly as complex and intriguing as that of its predecessor. Although, I must say, I do not think I have ever laughed as hard reading a book as I did when Lexi makes a certain trip to the salon. Hi-freaking-larious.

The love triangle did continue and heated up in some ways, while severely cooling down in ot

This book teaches me one thing: Sometimes, friends can be your enemy, and your enemies can actually be your friends. Confusing? Well, I suppose it is. Things can get really confusing, but don’t worry, things usually gets better as truth is slowly revealed.

As I read this book though, I wondered if one could be evil enough to make their enemy’s enemy their friend? Or should one keep your enemy at arm’s

What I Loved: Sometimes when you read a book, you get really lucky enough to see yourself in a character. That was how I felt while reading Lexi! She was right at home with a keyboard/research but when you put her in a dress and heels she felt awkward. Granted, I hope
For some reason, I thought this was the first in the series, but once into it, realized there was a first. But, I was able to catch up with the characters quickly.

I had high hopes for this one, as I loved the concept of high tech mysteries. However, I was quite disappointed when the focus was more on the romance aspect rather than the mystery. To me, it felt like the mystery resolution was anti-climatic, as there seemed to be more attention paid to the men who were falling all over our geeky her

I have really enjoyed the first 2 books so far. It's a great series with a good mix of mystery, funny moments and romanc. Although I wish the romance would move along a little faster, I think Lexi needs some more confidence in herself when it comes to men. When it concerns her work, she is an empowered female. But she doesn't see herself as pretty even though she has 2 men hotly pursuing her. Hopefully the next book will be better.

After the first page of the first book, I realized this was going to read like a carbon copy of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. It's basically the same blueprint, so similar in some cases that I nearly put it down. But I still couldn't help but get pulled in. These books are quick, entertaining reads. I made it through all seven books in a week. I'll read the eighth when it comes out in the fall.

Lexi is in over her head, not only with the men in her life but also with the case she is working. Lexi is brilliant but socially inept. Its a laugh out loud time when Lexi tries to find a man who is leaving clues that no one can solve, stop an assassination and stay alive long enough to see another day. You can't help but like the characters, the story is decent and Lexi's awkward moments, women can relate to.

Liked this. Fun without being annoying in Lexi's cluelessness and frankness. A little leery about the love triangle, but admit it's due solely to being so fed up with Evanovich's Stephanie Plum never-to-be-resolved triangle, so I can overlook that. The mystery was a little OTT but a fun romp and overall enjoyable read. I like Finn's character and how he deals with Lexi.
