Authoress: Julie Moffett
Publisher: Carina Press
Goodreads: No One Lives Twice
Genre: Mystery | Cozy Mystery
The bad: Choppy beginning
The good: Fun & quirky
The great: Action-packed & original
My summary and say: I really enjoyed the characters and world of computer hacking and international spies that basically landed on Lexi's lap. One minute she was heading to dinner with her folks. The next minute she has a gun in her face and hired thugs threatening her life. Lexi is easily to relate to and root for.
My whodunit verdict: 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.My recommendation: Think cozy mystery with a dose of Killers (2010). I haven't seen it but every trailer reminds me of Lexi. Cozy lovers and fans of clean mysteries are sure to enjoy this one.
My star rating: 4 out of 5 stars
My cover thoughts: Perfect! So cute! Even the hot ethnic guy in the background suits the story.
My love-the-love take: When it rains it pours. Lexi goes from no options to a sexy Irish attorney, a steamy Italian spy, and her best friend the brilliant yet nerdy computer hacker.
My kiddie-o-meter: While this one is written for adults, it has minimal violence and no sex.
My final say: Ahhhh she didn't kiss the guy I realllly wanted her to kiss. Grrrr. Now, I'm really anxious for book two. Besides her love life, I need to know if she is going to make this spy thing a permanent gig?
