Review: No One Lives Twice : A Lexi Carmichael Mystery (Julie Moffett)

Book Review:  No One Lives Twice (A Lexi Carmichael Mystery)

Synopsis (from Amazon):

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...

This was a fun read and Lexi is a great character.  She works for NSA, a secret that is not so secret since almost everyone in her suburb seems to work there. But she isn't the usual type one thinks of when envisioning someone at NSA - she is a computer geek.  Lexi is held at gunpoint, kidnapped, her apartment trashed, her privacy invaded despite new security, and then befriended by the person who asked Lexi's BFF to translate a document.  It all comes together with twists and turns, a chuckle or two, and lots of possibilities.  This is the first in the series and I will definitely read the other three already published: No One to Trust, No Money Down, No Place Like Rome.  All are now on my TBR list. Hmmm... maybe an interview with Julie Moffett is in order!
