My Nails and My Book Review - No Regrets by Julie Moffett


Title: No Regrets
Series: Lexi Carmichael Mystery #10
Author: Julie Moffett

Goodreads Summary: 
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 weddingWhen 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…

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**
Even though this is book 10, and the first one I have read, I had no problem at all following the story. There is enough background information to help first time readers, but not so much that long time readers would get bored with repeated information. The plot was really fast moving and never dragged. There were also a lot of hilarious bits thrown in. I can't wait to read more of this series.

My Manicure: I was inspired by the beach setting. I chose KBShimmer Little Boy Hue for my water/base to give it a nice soft look. Then I did a glitter gradient with L.A. Colors Encore for the sand. It was a little glitter heavy, so the gradient doesn't show as much as I'd like it to, but it does still give a sort of beachy look.
