I have the third book in the series, Revenge of the Spellmans, waiting in the wings. But before he can build a defense, he has to know the facts. Their first caper, The Spellman Files, was a New York Times bestseller and earned comparisons to the books of Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich. Or maybe it’s the fact that privacy and trust is something that is rarely present when it comes to the Spellmans. If you see me posting about a book you have reviewed, leave me a comment with the link to your review and I will add it to my post. Curse of the Spellmans is the sequel to The Spellman Files, a novel about an unconventional family that runs a private investigation firm. What little mystery there was got resolved in su.

I also quite missed the presence of Uncle Ray. Her latest book, The Passenger, a psychological thriller, will be published March 2016 by Simon and Schuster. Why is her mother leaving the house at all hours of the night to vandalize a stranger's motor bike? Now thirty and working in the family business, she gets in over her. All those other people could make fun of her and being shitty to her and that was okay? The suspect that Izzy is sure is up to no good is of course a good guy. … I will happily continue on in this series, but I really wish my library systems had them all in audio! When will it end and just how many times does Isabel need to be arrested? I'm thinking Izzy's lack of respect for the rules might just have some justification. But before he can build a defense, he has to know the facts. About the Book . I'm not sure what to say about this book. Maybe it’s his all too common name of John Brown? This was a reread for me and chosen deliberately. And who is recreating the string of vandalism Izzy is alleged to have perpetrated during her youth? Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz. Lisa Lutz’s website has an excerpt, a reading group guide and more. Her family treated her like crap and I felt really bad for her. What little mystery there was got resolved in such an absurd manner that it made me want to throw the book across the room. Refresh and try again. So entertaining! Over weak coffee and diner sandwiches, Izzy unveils the whole truth and nothing but the truth -- as only she, a thirty-year-old licensed professional, can. I felt like the author was talking down to me, the fact that the protagonist is a 30 year old woman who narrates in a more juvenile way than her 16 year old sister makes her INCREDIBLY hard to empathize with or to root for at all... Izzy's back! I really enjoyed reading The Spellman Files, and this was more of the same. And, the fact that David didn't feature as much in this book was really too bad (his banter and negotiations with Izzy and Rae in The Spellman Files were just so fun). Teen Book Review (contains a review of The Spellman Files, too). Looking forward to the next several books in the series. Not worth re-reading and/or suggesting to anyone else. But I didn't at all enjoy where the author went with the story. Isabel "Izzy" Spellman, having grown up in a highly dysfunctional family of private investigators in San Francisco, is distrustful of everyone, is not deterred by locked doors, social boundaries (really, she's not deterred by boundaries of any kind), and always has to get to the bottom of mysteries, even when it would be better for her if she just let it go. So how can something be so good and coherent and yet be so random and rambling? I read this for the first time pre-Goodreads so I'm not sure what I thought at the time but for now, it's not my favorite of the series because I didn't really like any of the mysteries she was dealing with but I love the characters and look forward to revisiting them as I continue to re-read the series. We've got you covered with the buzziest new releases of the day. Lisa Lutz‘ Isabel Spellman series is a little like Janet Evanovich‘s Stephanie Plum. I've given up thinking this series is a typical pi story w/a mystery. Curse of the Spellmans: A Novel by Lisa Lutz, Izzy Spellman Mysteries book 2 (Simon & Schuster, 2008), 416 pages, Summary, excerpted from the book jacket Book two, Curse of the Spellmans, was just as much fun as the first and perhaps even a smidge better.
