BOOK: Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz

Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz, 500 pages

2nds Reading Challenge; Mystery and Suspense Challenge

The Spellmans are hilarious! In the first book, the whole family seemed crazy, but in this book, Isabelle is the main one. The rest of the family seemed a little more normal to me. Hmm, well, not normal, but not as paranoid and intense as Isabelle.This book begins with Isabelle's fourth arrest (only two really count) and her long-winded explanation to her eighty year old retired lawyer of how she ended up in jail. Again. And naturally, none of it is Izzy's fault.

I won't say any more about this book, because you need to start at the first book of this fun romp through San Francisco. Izzy learns a little bit more and may even be, gasp, learning some things about herself and others. But there are still more adventures with the Spellmans - Revenge of the Spellmans and The Spellmans Strike Again.
