Isabel Spellman 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. But when Izzy decides to get out of the family business in search of normalcy, she ends up taking on the most important case of her life. The Spellman Files is an unforgettable introduction to the Spellman family in all its lovable chaos.
Narrated by 28-year-old Izzy Spellman, THE SPELLMAN FILES is the comical story of a family of private investigators. Everyone is in on the game--from mom to Izzy to little sis Rae. When Izzy isn't musing over her love life, she's busy sleuthing and picking locks, though she's beginning to wonder if she's really cut out for the family biz. There's nothing old-school about this clever little mystery. A hip and entertaining debut, it's a whodunnit with a chick lit edge--Bridget Jones with a magnifying glass.
