Another bundle of goofy fun. I'm starting to think Ms. Lutz may be a genius. There is no other explanation for my laughing out loud at some of the daft Dad-jokes in this book. ( )

Isabel finds her court required theapy extended. Her parents are continuing to pressure her on the job front. Even after taking a fidelity case as a favor for one of his friends, Milo decides to fire her. She can't find her car, Rae may have cheated on the PSAT, David is acting strange, Ruth is forcing Morty to make good on his promise to move to Florida, and Henry has a new girlfriend. The usual antics ensue as various family members try to manipulate one another. Laugh out loud funny. ( )

Oh, Spellman books - is it possible for them to be bad?

Typically, in any series, the middle book ends up being the awkward one. The Spellman series is no exception to that rule. Although Revenge of the Spellmans was, in my opinion, not as strong as the previous two books, it still was an entertaining and hilarious read. As Isabel deals with her court ordered therapy, and the questionable job situation in her life, the other characters likewise try to move their lives forward. This is a book about changes, and attempting to adapt to the world around you. It comes off as a bit more serious than the other books, which, again, it is meant to based on the focus of the plot.

I really can't wait to get the next book, and more, for the series to continue. Way to go Lisa Lutz. :) ( )

After her four arrests [see the previous Spellman document, Curse of the Spellmans], Izzy finds herself in court-ordered therapy. She’s taking a break from the family business and is tending bar at The Philosopher’s Club where Milo gets her involved with a new case: an “is-my-wife-cheating” surveillance job for his friend Eddie. But Eddie’s wife, Linda, is doing nothing more than meeting a friend, Sharon, for lunch in various places around town. But something is peculiar about the two women and their meetings so Izzy keeps working the case.

As always, Izzy has a slew of troubles to deal with, including a secret home, her inability to sleep [except on the bus], a car that’s never where she left it, and the dreaded weekly therapy sessions.

Family matters are serious . . . David’s not going to work, Rae seems to have cheated on her PSAT test [and she and Henry aren’t speaking], her father wants her to make a decision about her future.

And then there’s the blackmailer . . . .

The third of the six Spellman tales, this narrative spins out its story around Izzy and what she ultimately wants for herself. With all the expected characters in place, this whodunit is less mystery and more about the relationships in this ditzy, loveable family. Nevertheless, fans of the series are sure to enjoy the continual shenanigans.

The Spellman Mystery Series continues in three more volumes of delightful family capers. Continue the laughter.

Highly recommended. ( )

Book Description:
This third adventure of Izzy Spellman and her dysfunctional family of private detectives finds her taking a break from the family business--and her parents going to any length to get her back in the fold. And then a friend introduces her to a man who wants his wife followed. Sounds simple--but for Izzy, it never is.

Although there is a mystery about the wife Izzy is investigating, the story is mainly about Izzy and her funny approaches to her work, her family, her friends and her court-ordered therapy. I enjoyed this book and thought it was better than the previous two. It kept me smiling and chuckling throughout. ( )

Private investigator Isabel Spellman is back on the case and back on the couch - in court-ordered therapy after getting a little too close to her previous subject. Izzy is on hiatus from Spellman Inc. But when her boss simultaneously cuts her bartending hours and introduces her to a "friend" looking for a private eye, Izzy reluctantly finds herself with a new client.
