No One Lives Twice (Lexi Carmichael Mystery #1)
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...more

Readers of romance & fans of books similar to The Givenchy Code will enjoy this book. (It's not identical to TGC, but similar enough to where it reminded me a little of it.) Lexie Carmichael isn't the brightest computer geek out there, but sh...more
Lexi is a 24 going on 25 year old woman with a top secret computer job. She is a computer geek, wears no makeup, has had sex exactly one time in her life, and it is quite possible that she buys her clothes at Walmart. Not what you picture as a Bond girl... She also loves Dunkin Donuts and Diet Coke. She is very down to earth, sassy, and honest. She does not have a side kick named Lulu, but there are hot guys...more
This was my first Moffett read, and I really enjoyed it! It had a very easy flow, which made it a quick, light read. I enjoy Lexi's character - she is that geeky yet sexy girl, in a bookish subtle sort of way. I don't even think she knows yet what kind of power she has over certain men. Just because she doesn't like her figu...more

No One Lives Twice is the first book in the series about Lexi Carmichael, the super geek who leads an extremely boring life until her best friend sends her a package. Lexi lived her whole life wrapped up in numbers and computers, loving her job at the NSA tracking down hackers. Her only friends are her college BFF Basia, and the super smart and somewhat reclusive Zimmerman twins.

This is my first Carina Press book - they only come in e-format - and it has a hqn bombshell feel. So far it's cute and funny... but she needs to stop running in circles and start heading in a direction soon.
I go half way and then went and read the last chapter... it summed up the other half of the book and now I'm debating bothering with the middle. There's nothing more annoying that a character that decides to play hero and...more
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 cha...more

The best part of this story was the incredibly original story line. It will keep you on your toes and the plot is both timely and completely believable.

I couldn't give it 5 out of 5 because I felt she'd dropped a couple of plot lines.
I was pleased to see she has a sequel coming out this summer. Maybe I'll get my resolution then.
The plot dashes along, leaving the reader breathless. I never saw the plot twists coming.
I will definitely get the next Lexi book.
I loved this book! This is a great series and I cannot wait to read the next one. Lexi and her crew were a fun bunch and I'm glad their adventures will continue.
