The Spellman Files
by Lisa Lutz
Published by Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing Group, 2007
Summary: Izzy Spellman has worked for her parent's detective agency since she was a young teenager. P.I. work seems to be in her blood -- at the expense of her personal life. When she starts secretly dating a dentist, her parents hire her teenage sister Rae to spy on her and all hell breaks loose.
Review: This has to be one of my favorite books of the year so far. The Spellman Files is funny, fast paced, and amazingly entertaining. Izzy is the perfect main character, part of a completely dysfunctional family yet a unique individual on her own. All of the Spellmans are intriguing characters whose antics will make you laugh out loud. A wonderfully comedic character piece filled with action, The Spellman Files is not to be missed. Rating: ***** out of 5.
