2010 book 75

Lisa Lutz's The Spellmans Strike Again
The fourth and, sadly, final book about the hilarious family of PIs came out today and I rushed right out and got it b/c this is one of my favorite series of all time. Seriously. The books aren't really about the mysteries, which mainly serve to move the plot forward as we get to know the characters, especially protagonist Isabel, the wayward daughter. In this volume, Izzy is finally trying to be a grown-up, but it's hard when doorknobs keep disappearing from the family home, she's trying to bust a rival PI, and she's gotten an out-of-work actor friend to pose as a butler. And it all ends just the way I hoped it would! LOVE this series. A.
