FOR THE FIRST TIME in Spellman history, Isabel Spellman, PI, might be the most normal member of her family. Mom has taken on an outrageous assortment of extracurricular activities—with no apparent motive. Dad has a secret. Izzy’s brother and sister are at war—for no apparent reason. And her niece keeps saying “banana” even though she hates bananas. That’s not to say that Izzy isn’t without her own troubles. Her boyfriend, Henry Stone, keeps wanting “to talk,” a prospect Isabel evades by going out with her new drinking buddy, none other than Gertrude Stone, Henry’s mother. 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 math professor hires Izzy to watch his immaculate apartment while he unravels like a bad formula. And as the questions pile up, Izzy won’t stop hunting for the answers—even when they threaten to shatter both the business and the family.

While the primary Spellman Investigations mysteries are a bit less-than-crucial, the first Spellman book after a few years away feels tighter and more developmental than perhaps any that has come before. The whole family is undergoing serious growing-up type changes and it makes for an immensely co...
I really, really, really enjoy these books. Brain candy. The Spellmans are getting older, but not less dysfunctional.If you liked the other four you will like this too.I rarely pay 'full' price for an eBook these days (defined as > $10.00), I waited some months but needed some levity in my life an...
This is the 5th saga in the Spellman Series. It took a bit to get going, but in the end, it did not disappoint. I love this series because things change. Relationships change. Although the laughing never ends. Curious to see what will happen next with this family.
