Overview

I'm Lexi Carmichael, geek extraordinaire. I spend my days stopping computer hackers at the National Security Agency. My nights? Those I spend avoiding my mother and eating cereal for dinner. Even though I work for a top-secret agency, I've never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella.

Until today, that is, when two gun-toting thugs popped up in my life and my best friend disappeared. So, I've enlisted the help of the Zimmerman twins—the reclusive architects of America's most sensitive electronic networks—to help me navigate a bewildering maze of leads to find her.

Along the way, my path collides with a sexy government agent and a rich, handsome lawyer, both of whom seem to have the hots for me. Hacking, espionage, sexy spy-men—it's a geek girl's dream come true. If it weren't for those gun-toting thugs...

No One Lives Twice: A Lexi Carmichael Mystery, Book One 4.5 out of 5 based on 2 ratings. 63 reviews.

I love books told in the first person IF that character has something going that makes me want to visit in their skin for the length of the book. Lexi had it all .. humor, brains, good heartedness and a goofiness that was endearing. Her romantic encounters were sexy without being sordid, the dangerous situations were alarming without being gory and her thought processes were intelligent and funny. I had a great time reading this book, was able to follow the plot and keep all the characters straight and stayed interested right to the end. I couldn't ask for a more entertaining read.

The author really knew how to do humour correctly, and knew just what to do or say. However, the heroine was kind of confusing, seeing as how she never really gave her preference in the guys who were interested in her. But other than that, the book was excellent.

Lexi Carmichael is a geek, a computer geek to be specific, and works for the NSA. She has no love life to speak of, and doesn't find herself to be very appealing to men. But now her best friend Basia has disappeared and men seem to be lining up to help find her. I loved the action in this story. It was fast paced and exciting. It was great to see a bunch of computer geeks in action to save the day. In fact, the computer geeks were my favorite part...except for Lexi. Now since Lexi is our main character, that poses quite a predicament. Lexi is just a little too depressing. She complains about her lack of love life, her lack of taste in clothes, and about anyone who tries to help her. She gets a bit annoying at times just because she is always talking herself down. The action, on the other hand, is fantastic. There are so many twists and turns subtly worked into the story, and they kept me guessing up until the very end. 3/5

I really enjoyed “No One Lives Twice” book 1 in Julie Moffett’s, Lexi Carmichael Mystery series.  I picked it up during a free promotion but it is one that I would have felt I got my money’s worth from if I had purchased it. As a matter of fact, I’ve already purchased book 2 and hope to be able to read it soon. Lexi Carmichael is a NSA computer geek. She is uber smart but a little lacking in common sense and at types socially awkward. I loved her. There were moments that I laughed at her and moments that I cringed and thought “no, no, Lexi don’t do that”. I loved that the author balanced out all Lexi’s quirks so that nothing was over the top. You get the good and the bad and in the end you end up wanting to cheer for Lexi and give her a mini-makeover while at the same time encouraging her to stay true to herself. The mystery aspects of the story are great. There is a touch of James Bond type adventure to the story that moves things along at a fast pass. There’s some romance but it’s more hints of things to come as the series progresses type romance. At the end the mystery is solved and Lexi is left with possibilities of future employment and romance. This is a series that I am looking forward to reading and following as Lexi and her fellow characters solve more mysteries and find romance. Three word review: fun, smart, adventure

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This is the first book I've read by Julie Moffett. I loved the characters, the action, the twists and turns. Try it -- you'll be glad you did.

A light read but with a fairly involved situation. Involved enough that there isn't time for any significant subplots -- the story pretty much sticks to the main plot throughout. If the premise sounds interesting to you, I recommend you go for it.

The first volume in Moffet's new Lexi Carmichael series is witty, funny, and engaging. Lexi is a terrific protagonist: self-deprecating, with a great sense of humor, but not so cute as to be annoying. Plus, Slash and Finn are equally hot, and make great romantic foils. Recommended to fans of Alias, Charlie's Angels, and the Jason Bourne series. -- lyradora

I got this free and I was instantly hooked. Great characters and storyline. I highly recommend.

I enjoyed the characters and the convoluted plot, but could have done with less cute-guy-can't-like-smart-girl angst. The resolution was unrealistic. I liked the rest enough to put this author on my TBR list.

A great suspense/ comedy plot. Great use of characters. Funny situations and an easy read. There are no slow points.
