Published by Carina Press
Lexi Carmichael, a computer specialist with the NSA, has finally agreed to go on a vacation with her best friend, Basia. Lexi even agreed to let Basia pick where they would go and plan most of the vacation. So, it’s no surprise to Lexi that she arrives at a resort with lots of annoying people, sun, and other things that really are not Lexi’s idea of a good time. But Lexi is doing her best to try and have a good time for Basia.
Then Lexi meets two men who will become her next best friends, Elvis and Xavier Zimmerman, two names that Lexi knows from her computer/hacker connections as geniuses. They can talk to Lexi in a language that she can not only understand, but can relate to: hacking, programming, and computer games. Things are really looking up, and then Lexi stumbles into a mystery that gains her attention from the Secret Service and others, all because of another clumsy accident she is involved in. Now, Lexi, Basia, and the twins have to figure out the clues and find whatever it is that everyone is looking for before they have unexpected accidents.
A vacation just beginning to turn into a fun event takes a turn to the dangerous side in No Money Down. I have long wondered just how Lexi met and became so close to Elvis and Xavier. I should have known it would involve one of the infamous accidents that Lexi has become known for, at least to me. I will totally admit to laughing just as she become “closer” to one of them. Watching just how quickly Lexi and the twins became close friends and a team that could work together foretold what the future would bring. And through it all was Basia, the only person who can keep Lexi’s feet and head on earth and not just engaged in the ether that computer geniuses live in. No Money Down shows just how Lexi got together with the Zimmerman twins and became such close friends. It is a story filled with classic Lexi Carmichael humor, mishaps, and suspense that always seems to involve one government agency or another.
