Not only that, she's not afraid to shake things up. A [...]

    I suspect my commitment-phobia has branched into new areas of my life. I’ve grown hesitant to start new series, especially mysteries. I suppose it is a little unfair to expect the qualities I fall in love with in the first couple of books continue, but there it is: I do. I stuck with Lawrence Block’s Matt Scudder through many ups and downs, but Marcia Muller’s fallen apart on her latest, Janet Evanovich started recycling Stephanie Plum plots by book 8 (if not sooner), Sue Grafton had a lon [...]

    Somewhere, Janet Evanovich is planning a hit on Lisa Lutz. The Spellman series just gets better, with some expected and unexpected character developments. Funny enough to make you snort your bourbon and Diet Coke out your nose, the Spellman books keep you intrigued equally with the "mysteries" and her characters. Can't wait for a fourth - here's hoping the movie in development doesn't spoil the books for new fans.Read-alikes would be the aforementioned Evanovich, perhaps Diane Mott Davidson (at [...]

    Lisa Lutz makes me laugh. Out loud. She is one of the most clever writers I know of, and her characters, who are part of a crazy family who are all part of their own private investigator business, are so much fun! But it's her copious footnotes that are truly hysterical! I'd recommend this series of books (the first two are now out in paperback) to anyone who could use a good laugh!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. What a wonderful romp it is. I found it to be a great mood elevator. I’ve never read any books quite like Lisa Lutz’s; they’re unique.Oh, how I adore this family. Oh, how Lisa Lutz makes me laugh. I’ve laughed out loud too many times to count while reading this book and also while reading the previous two in the series: The Spellman Files (book 1) and Curse of the Spellmans (book 2) and this third book really deepened the series and was just as hilarious.I [...]

    Elizabeth (Miss Eliza)
    Court ordered therapy is the least of Isabel's worries in this third installment in the Spellman saga. Having a car that keeps going MIA, a secret home as well as the looming decision of what to do with her life all compound to make Izzy's life very busy. Isabel has left her job at Spellman Investigations only to have Milo, her current employer and owner of The Philosopher's Club, attempt to force her back into what she's good at by offering her a case and then promptly firing her so that she'll [...]

    This third in the Spellman series made me laugh at times, and the many plot lines kept me interested throughout, but it comes nowhere near the hilarity of the first book, The Spellman Files. One thing that annoys me a bit about the 2 subsequent books is the constant references to the preceding books via footnotes (e.g. see previous document, The Spellman Files, now available in paperback.) Shameless marketing. Overall, though, as I said before, the plot still holds up and the characters are all [...]

    I think it's safe to say I completely utterly adored it. All I can say is it's awesome. Terrific writing, intriguing plots, lovable characters. There is one small completely unsatisfying kiss in this book (if you follow the series, you will know who I'm talking about) that actually brought tears to my eyes and that's all I will say about that. Loved it.

    This is the best book in the series out of the three I've read so far. Hilarious, witty, full of healthy sarcasm and no one can beat these quirky (in a good way) characters, that Lutz has been developing so well for so long now. She keeps suspense up through the whole book with a few simultaneous story lines about the Spellman family's investigations, but as always, the best story lines are those of the family members spying on each other and on their friends. Also laugh-out-loud funny are the a [...]

    Okay, the plot is thin, but the smart-talking Izzy and her eccentric family of private eyes continue to appeal to me. A light, fun read. The footnotes (particularly the ones hyping her earlier books) started to wear a little thin. I suggest reading them in order starting withThe Spellman FilesandCurse of the Spellmans .

    Anna
    These books are a hoot. This is the third book in the Spellman Files and continues the saga of a dysfunctional family of private investigators. I enjoyed every page and didn't want to put it down. I like how Lutz tells her stories, the books are in an interesting format I love how its like we're reading a case file.

    Think my love affair with the Spellmans may be over. I loved the first two books, whizzed through them chuckling away! This one though I was just kind of 'meh' about reading it and put it down several times.

    If you are in the mood for light reading, pick this one up. In the vein of Janet Evanovich. The Spellman series is good for a quiet afternoon where you just want to escape.

    This series is really hard to put down. I can't wait to read #4.

    Private investigator Isabel Spellman quit her job with her family’s detective business and is working part-time as a bartender at her friend Milo’s bar while trying to decide what to do next. She’s also been through one block of court-ordered therapy and has been passed by that therapist on to another. Milo persuades Isabel to take on a relatively simple case for one of his friends, whose wife is acting mysterious and bringing home expensive items. Meanwhile, Isabel’s brother David retur [...]

    Jacqueline
    Well at least she managed to solve an actual case here. And I was happy to see that her brother David treated her well and seemed to care for her. Some of my favorite characters left the series and I hope I like whoever comes along next. I was pissed at Henry Stone this time around.(view spoiler)[What's up with him turning Izzy down because she wasn't adult enough for her? Dick. Still if this is where it ends with Henry I'll be okay. If they get together later I'm going to be going back to expec [...]

    This is a very quirky series and I really like it. Lisa Lutz is very inventive in her style of writing. Her stories never take the usual course and are usually told out of sequence. If done wrong, it can ruin a book, but she does it right every time.

    Jon
    I love these Spellman booksey're quickly paced, they're witty, they have creative plot structures and they are fiction that employ footnotes. What's not to love? They're also a series of books that keeps improving with each new entry. I always look forward to the next installment.

    Willow
    I have always enjoyed when the characters grows during a series. In this one, you can see how Izzy is "growing up" in his own terms. How cute Rae is turning into an awfull adult. And how in generall, everything is evolving. I liked this one a lot.

    Rage
    these books are so fun. I always have to readjust - the Spellman family can be kind of annoying (especially Rae, as she's getting older), but once I get reacquainted with their ways, I love Lutz's writing. I was actually laughing out loud at some of the ridiculous dialogue. I also really appreciate that Izzy is thinking more about her actions, the consequences, being more considerate of the people around her but the absurdity of her living situation and the complexity of the cases in which she's [...]

    I rarely let out a laugh while reading, but Lutz has such a witty voice through her protagonist Isabel, I find myself laughing throughout the series. Although the 3rd book in this series is more of the same, I keep coming back for more! Perfect read for a vacation.

    Amelia Marie
    Izzy Spellman is my new literary hero ❤️ while she's not particularly bad ass, she is hilariously relatable. I wish I could be her partner in crime. On second thought, I feel like I already am the inside jokes thrown in make me literally laugh-out-loud!

    Kathy
    Lutz intertwines multiple storylines in a compelling way so that you don't want to put the book down until you knowwho is sending the blackmail notes? not Rae, not Dad, not Mom, not David so who? yeah it was Henry Stone, who wants her to admit her secret (living in her brother's basement garage without telling him) and to pick up a little culture along the wayWhat is her client's wife & friend really up to? Their behaviour seems legal, and moral but there's something more going on why does [...]

    Isabel Spellman is back and better than ever. For those of you who have not heard of the Spellmans, they are a family of private investigators. They are not your normal PI's in that they spend more time spying on each other than they do other people.This is the third in a series, the first book, or document as Lisa Lutz perfers, was "The Spellman Files", and the second was "The Curse of the Spellmans". The books do not have to be read in order, but would certainly would be more enjoyable if read [...]

    Muriel
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book (Izzy's therapy sessions in particular were hilarious) but I must admit I knocked off 1/2 a star because I was a disappointed by how the Izzy/Henry angle played out. The scene where they finally kiss was heartbreaking and while I understand Henry's POV (and agree) it still ended rather abruptly for my taste. I'm hoping this really isn't the end (it felt a little too final for my taste) and there's hope for them in the future if Izzy ever decides to grow up sooner t [...]

Isabel is also taking a self-inflicted break from the family detective agency and working in her friend Milo's bar.Her brother David asks her to house-sit for him, and she discovers that he has an empty apartment in his basement, which comes in handy when she loses her job at the bar. She secretly moves into the apartment, whilst working [...]

    I am totally in love with this series of books. The first one I picked up on a whim at the library, the second one I sought out, and I couldn't wait to read this one. The books are supposed to be mysteries, but any mystery involved is secondary to the mystery of how this family continues to function as a unit. The Spellman's operate a investigation firm, Spellman, Inc and they enlist every possible family member into the firm. Isabel, who tells the stories, began to work and receive a paycheck f [...]

    With great difficulty I put this book down at 10 like a good girl, but I couldn't sleep, so I finished in the hour of 3am. I briefly considered giving this book 5 stars, but after remembering how predictable the plot line was I had to knock it down a level. This might have been my favorite so far, in part because the footnotes were more humorous and less full of details I already knew and the plot could flow without so much background information. I found myself skipping much less of this book t [...]

    Sarah
    Revenge of the Spellmans was the perfect book to read on the way to Dallas. I was already familiar with the characters, it's fun to read and helps pass the time, and it's not so dense and detailed that I have to pay a tremendous amount of attention to keep following. I'm pretty sure I liked it almost as much as the first book, a bit better than the second, and I had a pretty good idea about the outcome of the mystery (sadly, I was only partially correct). I love the way Lutz presents her main ch [...]
