Trial of the Spellmans

Trail of the Spellmans (The Spellmans, #5)Trail of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Things are changing in the Spellman family. Izzy is taking a more active role in the family business, David is married and a stay at home dad, and Rae is at college and concerned about the environment. On top of all that a Chinese wall has been evoked by the Senior Spellmans to keep overlapping investigations from becoming a conflict. But not everything is as nice as its seems. Izzy has really concerns with the way the business is being run and concerns about the cases they are working. David and Rae are fighting, Izzy is avoiding Henry, Oliva is enrolling in classes and taking up hobbies and then we meet Grandma Spellman!!!!!

As usual this was a laugh out loud read...few book are as funny as The Spellman books. I loved this one because you could see the family growing and changing. Especially Izzy, who makes some real changes towards maturity. And although I was not happy with all the choices she makes, especially her love life, it was fun watching Izzy out maneuver her family and resolve her problems. With each new page their is a new piece to the puzzle that Izzy is trying to solve.

If you are looking for a fun, outrageous alcoholic induced good don't walk to get this one. Its well worth the read and

  1. ARGH why did she have to DO THAT (i.e. the love life thing). I am so insanely frustrated!! In the TSSA she was all "When I kissed Henry, I wasn't picturing ex-boyfriend #13; I was picturing Husband #1" and then did a total 180 in this book! Maybe I'm too invested in their storyline... but seriously. Poor Henry. Stupid Isabel. There had better be a next one that gives a more satisfactory ending!

    1. I agree I was not the least bit happy with that part. I like Henry. I like Izzy with Henry.
