Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz

Curse of the SpellmansCurse of the Spellmans: A Novel by Lisa Lutz, Izzy Spellman Mysteries book 2 (Simon & Schuster, 2008), 416 pages

Summary, excerpted from the book jacket
“When Izzy Spellman, PI, is arrested for the fourth time in three months, she writes it off as a job hazard. She’s been (obsessively) keeping surveillance on a suspicious next door neighbor (suspect’s name: John Brown), convinced he’s up to no good — even if her parents (the management of Spellman Investigations) are not.”

Thoughts
I read the first book in the series, The Spellman Files, earlier this year.

Curse of the Spellmans delivers more of Izzy and her over-the-top quirky family of private investigators. I really enjoyed reading The Spellman Files, and this was more of the same. Still fun, still funny.

I have the third book in the series, Revenge of the Spellmans, waiting in the wings. And I’m looking forward to the release of the fourth, The Spellmans Strike Again, which is due out in March 2010.

  1. Sounds like a great, fun series! I’ll have to look for it.

  2. I own both book one and two but they are still waiting to be read. I didn’t even know that there already is book three!
