Trail of the Spellmans (Spellman Files Series #5)

Trail of the Spellmans (Spellman Files Series #5) - MY THOUGHTSLOVED ITI adore the Spellmans and in this latest installment, they are back to their homespun wackiness where no one trusts anyone as far as they can throw them. The story skips back and forth between the family members, each having their own issues. Mrs. Spellman suddenly throws herself into a whirlwind of acitivities. David is now a stay at home dad whose daughter refers to everything as "banana". Rae is in college and still working part time for the family, but has lost her interest. She does develop feelings for a boy whom she treats with little regard. Isabel is on and off with Henry and finds she has more in common with his mother lately. Her father has taken on several questionable cases.It really sounds like none of these things should go together, but Lutz weaves them all with humor and sarcasm. This is the first book in the series I couldn't sit down and read straight through. I had read that the author wasn't feeling the series anymore and I think it shows a bit. I did laugh out loud quite a bit and felt this would be a good book to end the series on since most major issues are tied up neatly. I will miss the family, well, at least until I find out there is another book on the way!
