The Spellman Files: Document #1, by Lisa Lutz
This is the first book in a six-part series. The main character, Isabel Spellman, is a twenty-eight-year-old woman that works in her family’s Private Investigation firm. She is smart, great at her job, and fiercely independent. Growing up in a home of PIs has proven to be a difficult way to keep and maintain privacy, and because Isabel insists on being independent and somewhat secretive, she is regularly branded as crazy by her family, and sometimes by others. These books are all quick reads filled with intriguing and hilarious characters that will keep you turning pages.
