Publisher's Summary

"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...."

Love It!

Great story, well paced, well narrated. It was serious in the right places and funny when appropriate. The espionage is light but not in a bad way. I don't like overdone romance and this had just enough to keep things interesting without being over the top. This was a fun listen and I can't wait for more by this author, hopefully continuing the characters in this story.

Ug....another book ruined by bad narration

Th narrator is just SO bad that it's overshadowing any good that this book might have been. She's is a slow talking, over-enunciator, who is making everything sound cheesy with her over-the-top "harlequin" voice. I get that this is a categorized as a Harlequin production, but if she could just read it like a normal person, it could read like cute heroine, chick lit. She's also a saliva-heavy reader....ug.

I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and I've learned that narration is 80% of the experience, at least. I'd like my credit back, please.

Bad narrator but decent book

I am pretty picky about narrators and almost didn't get this one because of the reviews. I'm glad I got the book anyway because it was a fairly fun read, and the narration wasn't bad enough that I returned the book without even finishing it (which I have done a few times). This narrator wasn't even bad enough that I plan to go for the print version of any book she narrates that I'm interested in, which I do for some narrators. That being said, I should mention that my biggest pet peeves are over-acting and weird voices, like when someone reads in a voice that is too breathy or childish or whatever. This narrator spoke in a normal voice. Though she often sounded like she was reading a cue card (which I guess she sort of was) instead of sounding like a friend telling a story, her acting wasn't over the top, just not oscar-winning. I can live with that, along with a few mispronunciations I noticed.

HOWEVER, if bad accents are a particular annoyance to you, DO NOT get this book - it will make you want to jump off a bridge. There were many characters of various nationalities in this book, so there were many accents to perform. I wouldn't expect any narrator to get them all perfect, but this one sounds like her only exposure to non-American-accented English was from old Dracula movies.

Delightful!

Thoroughly engaging heroine! A woman with a brain who takes charge. I loved it.

Good Story Line- Narrator is not THAT bad

What made the experience of listening to No One Lives Twice the most enjoyable?

I liked the narration. She did do a really bad Italian accent, but I thought her voice was pleasant and easy to listen to- the other accents were GREAT!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked that Lexi could laugh at herself.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

As above the performance was GREAT except for the Italian accent.... It sounded a little more like Dracula... but otherwise I thought she did a good job

Reader ruined any chance

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who likes a reader with too much saliva and a bad concept of timing, enunciation, pronunciation and general charm.

Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Moffett again?

No.

How could the performance have been better?

If someone clever had been hired. The prose is not bad. I keep trying to find "good" american authors. With the right voice, this could have been zippy and entertaining.

What character would you cut from No One Lives Twice?

The reader who is not a character but who ruins the book. I could not finish the book.

Any additional comments?

I feel sorry for this promising author to be saddled with such an awful reader.

Poor immitation of Stephanie Plum

Would you try another book from Julie Moffett and/or Kristin Watson Heintz?

The writing is not bad but the story requires too much suspension of disbelief. No one working for the NSA would be stupid enough to fail to report she had been held at gunpoint twice in the same day especially when she has a cop for a brother. Using such a ploy as a springboard for a story is all too common and it ruins any sympathy I might have had for the character. She tells her friends but doesn't tell her superiors in one of the most powerful agencies in the world?!The story is full of unbelievable contradictions that soon had me picking it apart and becoming disgusted wondering if it had ever been read by an editor and that's not something I've done very often.
Kristin Heintz did a good job and I would listen to her again.

Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Moffett again?

As I said, the writing wasn't bad and I think the author has potential so, yes, I would consider giving her another go but probably not with this series.

Which scene was your favorite?

Nothing in particular stood out but I didn't finish the book

What would have made this romance irresistible?

There is too much to list. This book should have been gone over by an editor who knew what he/she was doing.

OK story, really bad accents

The story is OK, not very deep and I would like it to be more about hacking than how inept she is around people. The narrator is fine with Lexi's dialog, but when she tries to do accents, they are so bad (especially Italian) that it is distracting from the story.

Great plot

I enjoyed the plot of the book. It was compelling and draws you through. The mystery intriguing. However, the main character's reactions to situations are SO unrealistic that it's a bit distracting. Suspension of disbelief is expected on some level but come on. You can't be that naive and able to roll with threats of violence so easily...even at 25. Humans just don't work that way.

a hacker that can't google

I liked the first book (book number 0.5) but in this book she doesn't show any common sense and couldn't use a computer to find a single piece of information. Weird for a hacker. And she didn't even have the smarts so not use a cell phone given to her from a bad guy. I'm done with this series.

This could be great, I'll never know because - UGH

This book looks really interesting. The first two hours of listening seemed very promising HOWEVER: THE READER. Kristin Watson Heintz has a tone and style that mimics a woman reading a bedtime story to a (possibly somewhat slow) child. This pretty much kills the sassy, snappy, clever writer of teh author and in the end I just. Couldn't. Anymore. .

I loved it!

This is the first book in the Lexi Carmichael series. It’s a fast paced mystery suspense with exciting twists and turns. There’s a plethora of great characters and a thrilling storyline that’s lighthearted in places. I’ll definitely be continuing with this series. I loved it!
