The Smart/Geeky Heroine

I adore books with a smart heroine.

The girl who hacks into an FBI database or puzzles her way out of a complicated set-up. Mostly they are portrayed as a bit (ok.. a lot) geeky, socially awkward, shy and – of course! – secretly beautiful. But they can use brainpower and save the day. Extra points when they also save the hero.

 

Smart is sexy!

 

Some of my favorite smart heroines are:

 

1. Lexi Carmichael – Lexi Carmichael Mysteries by Julie Moffett.
