Pre-Pub Book Buzz: Trail of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz

While we're on the subject of lighter reads and sure-fire slump busters, it's the perfect time for me to tell you about the latest and upcoming book in one of my favorite series! Yep, Lisa Lutz's latest Spellman installment is due out Tuesday, Feb 28!

The Spellmans are back in this fifth book of the series. This time they've been hired by a brother to follow his sister, a wife who wants her husband's every move tracked, and parents who want their college-age daughter investigated for possible bad behavior. Of course there's a twist to each one not to mention Izzy's mother's strange behavior, Rae getting kicked out of David's house for a reason no one is revealing, and some unexpected visitors.

What's that you say? You haven't read any of the Spellman books!? Rest assured that readers can jump in at any time. You'll WANT to read them all once you get started, but you can safely pick up Trail without first having read the others.

Be prepared to defend yourself or explain massive outbursts of out loud laughter. My husband still hasn't learned and he came with me to see Lutz when she was promoting Heads You Lose with David Hayward (Heads is a standalone and another hilarious one I recommend highly).

For a taste of some of the Lutz signature snark, here's a little promo video for Trail:
