THEY'RE BAAAAACK. — (Re)meet New York Times bestselling author Lisa Lutz's Spellmans, a family in which eavesdropping is a mandatory skill, locks are meant to be picked, and blackmail is the preferred form of negotiation. — 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) surveilling a suspicious neighbor and attempting to apprehend the copycat vandal whose attacks on Mrs. Chandler's holiday tableaux eerily match the 1991-92 crime spree when Izzy and her best friend, Petra, were at their most delinquent. After the displeased management (i.e., Mom and Dad) at Spellman Investigations refuses to bail Izzy out, her octogenarian lawyer comes to her rescue. But first Izzy must unveil the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, as only a thirty-year-old licensed professional can. . . .

I loved the first book of the Spellman series so I knew that I had to read this one. I didn't know it was possible but this book made me fall in love even more with the Spellman family. I loved every character in this book, but especially Henry Stone. I loved his friendship with Rae, and his friends...
This one was much better than the first one! Very funny and clever. This family is nuts. I did call John Brown though.. I knew what he was doing way before Izzy got it. I wish Henry and Izzy would get together though. We'll see.
