Meet Isabel Spellman, private investigator. This twenty-eight-year-old may have a checkered past littered with romantic mistakes, excessive drinking, and creative vandalism -- but she's good at her job as a licensed P.I. with her family's firm, Spellman Investigations. Invading people's privacy comes naturally to Izzy and all the Spellmans. If only they could leave their work at the office. Izzy walks an indistinguishable line between Spellman family member and Spellman employee. Duties include: completing assignments from the boss, aka Mom and Dad; appeasing her chronically perfect lawyer brother; and setting an example for her fourteen-year-old sister, Rae (who's become addicted to "recreational surveillance"). But when Izzy decides to get out of the family business in search of normalcy, there's a hitch: she must take one last job before they'll let her go -- a fifteen-year-old, ice-cold missing person case. She accepts, only to experience a disappearance far closer to home, which becomes the most important case of her life. The Spellman Files is an unforgettable introduction to the Spellman family in all its lovable chaos.
This way a really good book, the humor in it was very wry. Isabelle Spellman has always worked for her parents Private Investigation office and after years of being spied upon she wants to leave. Her parents agree if she can solve a 10 year old missing persons case. The most enjoyable people in this book and the ones who made me laugh the most were Isabelle and her sister Rae.
