The Spellmans Are Out For Revenge!

Revenge of the Spellmans (Spellman Series, Book 3) Revenge of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Everyone beware!  The Spellmans are out for Revenge!  The third book in the Spellman series by Lisa Lutz.  This one does not disappoint!  All the good stuff wrapped up under one cover...funny, entertaining & a quick read!  If you haven't read my previous reviews regarding the other Spellman books I recommend them to all Evanovich fans!  Though they do have a few differences they are easily comparable & just as good as the Plum series.  The spellmans have quickly became a part of my favorite "book families".

Here's a quick overview about the Spellman series books for those of you who missed my previous reviews (links to those are below).  The Spellmans own a P.I. business (family owned & operated).  Run by Mom, Dad, David (brother who does not work with them), Rae (the younger sister who works with them) & Izzy the main character who also (obviously) works with her parents.  There are more quirky, fun characters that you will meet throughout the books & will come to love.  So, if you haven't, pick up Lutz's book & you will quickly find yourself caught up in Izzy's obsessive case investigations, her bad luck & all of her families hilarious happenings!  Oh, & did I mention the family loves to blackmail each other!?  As odd as it may sound I know it will keep you laughing out loud!

80's Teen Heartthrob Corey Haim Passed Away

Though it may not come as a surprise to a lot of you it's still non-the-less a sad event.  80's teen heartthrob Corey Haim passed away this morning at age 38.  Police say it looks like an apparent drug overdose, though they cannot be sure until the autopsy is done.  Anyone who has seen his & the "Other Corey's" TV show The Two Corey's which starred both Haim & Corey Feldman, probably caught a glimpse of Haim's continuing struggle with drugs.  

Both Haim & Feldman were popular 80's teen heartthrobs & yes, I was one of those with a crush on Haim.  You may remember him for some of his movies, most notably The Lost Boys & License to Drive (both movies starring Haim & Feldman).  Haim was also known for his roles in Murphy's Romance (which also starred Sally Field & James Garner) & Lucas (also starring Kerri Green & Charlie Sheen, was also Winona Ryder's first feature film role).  Both two of my favorite movies.  

A sad time!  I'm sure he'll be missed by many & especially those of us who had his posters hanging on our bedroom walls!  I admit...I was one of them! ; )
