Curse of the Spellmans
by Lisa Lutz
Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing Group, 2009
Spellman Files Series (Book 2)
Summary: Izzy Spellman is in trouble with the law again as she investigates her parent's suspicious new neighbor.
Review: Lisa Lutz writes another fantastically fun novel filled with the fabulous Spellman family. All the family members are back and up to their old investigating tricks in this sequel to The Spellman Files. The plot was fast paced but didn't pack the emotional punch that first book had. I did enjoy the larger role of Henry Stone as Rae's best friend and (possibly?) Izzy's new love interest. Actually, my favorite parts of the novel were Henry, Rae, and Izzy hanging out together because the dialogue between them was hysterical. Overall, a great addition to the Spellman series and I can't wait to read #3. Rating:****1/2 out of 5.
