& Taylor

Struggling with wacky family activities, secrets, and feuds, private investigator Isabel Spellman avoids Henry Stone by spending time drinking with his mother and tackling eccentric cases that seem suspiciously pointless.
For the first time in Spellman history, Isabel Spellman, P.I., might be the most normal member of her family. Yet as a number of cases pile, Izzy won't stop hunting for the answers--even when they threaten to shatter both the business and the family.

Simon and Schuster
The fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling series by Lisa Lutz, featuring the fearless private investigator Izzy Spellman and her quirky, yet endearing, family of sleuths.

For the first time in Spellman history, Isabel Spellman might be the most normal member of her family. Mom has taken on an outrageous assortment of extracurricular activities. Dad has a secret. Her brother and sister are at war, but neither will reveal the source of the conflict. While domestic disturbances abound, there is one source of sanity in the Spellman household: Demetrius Merriweather, employee of the month for eighteen months straight.

Things aren’t any simpler on the business side of Spellman Investigations. First, Rae is hired to follow a girl, only to fake the surveillance reports. Then a socialite has Isabel tail her husband, despite a conspicuous lack of suspicion. A man in a sweater vest hires the Spellmans to follow his sister, who turns out to be the socialite. Izzy won’t stop hunting for the answers—even when they threaten to shatter both the business and the family.

Readers are sure to love the next novel in a “series that keeps getting better and better” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

well, they had to break up. it was a sacrifice, but hooray to Izzy for knowing what she wants & doesn't want.
had they stayed together, well, we couldn't look forward to another book.
this series is definitely on my 'go to when down' shelf.

Like all the Spellman books, this is a fast-paced, funny read.

As the 5th in the series, this was a must-read for me. Not the strongest in the series, but I do enjoy Isabelle and the Spellmans a lot.

Another hilarious case featuring the Spellman's. Looks like Izzy shows a glimmer of maturity here, but as usual. she makes sure it swings her way! Well done.

Document #5 in the Spellman Series, just as funny as the first! Don't forget to read the footnotes!! They are the most important part!! ♥

This series is quirky but immensely enjoyable. The Spellmans have their own PI agency and their own oddities. Very enjoyable and highly recommended. I love the footnotes!
