The Perfect Geek Gift — Welcome Back Guest Julie Moffett

Giving the Perfect Gift at a Geek Wedding

We are delighted to welcome back Julie Moffett celebrating the release of her tenth book in her fantastic Lexie Carmichael mystery series.  Julie is giving away an ebook of No One Lives Twice (or another book of hers if you have that one) and a “This Princess Saves Herself” magnet to a random commenter on the post.

Here is a bit about the book:

Geek girl Lexi Carmichael has tackled her share of formidable tasks, but nothing quite as daunting as serving as maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding

When I agreed to stand by my best friend, Basia, on her big day, I had no idea what I was in for. Bouquets and unflattering evening wear I can handle. But between disgruntled dates, a beach venue and suspicious packages, what else can go wrong? Oh, right—my parents don’t know I’ve moved in with Slash. Oops?

Thankfully, I’ve got everything semi under control, at least as far as Basia and Xavier know. They can leave for their honeymoon happy, knowing Elvis, Slash and I will keep things safe at home.

Meanwhile, Elvis and Xavier’s boss at ComQuest has asked X-Corp—well, me—to take a quick trip to retrieve a sensitive company package from the British Virgin Islands. No hacking involved. Just show up, accept the package and bring it home safely. A cushy assignment, and a safe one. Right?

Wrong. Things start to unravel the minute I set foot on the boat to the island. Before I know it, I’m up to my neck in thugs, sand and trouble. I’m going to have to work fast to stop the bad guys before the sun sets for good on this unexpected beach vacation…

Here’s Julie, uh, Lexi:

Lexi Carmichael, the geeky heroine in my humorous, mystery series, gets stuck as the maid-of-honor at her best friend’s wedding in my latest release, NO REGRETS (out January 8th). Can she survive the ceremony without screwing things up too much? What about the toast and the first dance? More importantly, what should she buy as a wedding present for the new couple, especially since the bridegroom is a geek first-class?

Just in case you (or someone you care about) finds themselves in the exact same situation as Lexi, I’m here to help you out.

  1. His and Her Hans and Leia hand towels. Enough said.

  1. A Thor Ragnarok money clip, tie clip and cuff links. Feel the power (not to mention the brawn).

Go Retro! A Guardian of the Galaxy Star-Lord Walkman with headset.

 

4. It’s warm and snuggly, perfect for newlywed cuddling— the Dr. Who Tardis throw blanket!

5. All you need is a little wine to get things “sorted” out. Yes, it’s perfect! The Harry Potter Hogwarts wine glass selection!

Readers: Let me know if I missed anything awesome or if you have any good, geeky ideas!

31 Thoughts

  1. I have not read your series, but it looks like I would like it. Wit and humor are most welcome in a mystery and Lexi seems to have those in spades! Also, fun gift ideas. Our family goes for bookends that are tied to books we love…we have Lord of the Rings ones.

  2. The Lexi Carmichael series- all 10 books – are a can’t put them down till I finish them type of book. Julie uses humour and a great writing style to pull you in and keep you engaged. I have all 10 on ebook and have read them all twice and a couple (my favourites) more than twice. Thank you Julie for the great series and I look forward to the next one impatientlyl.

  3. Julie, I love the Lexi Carmichael books and own them all. I pre-ordered No Regrets and read it as soon as it arrived. Thank you for so much reading pleasure.
    I bought my husband a geek shirt for Christmas from Signals–It begins “INTELLIGENCE IS TH3 A51L1TY 70 4D4P7 …” Not a wedding gift, but fun.
