Revenge of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz

If you're looking for a light, funny and entertaining read, I recommend this book.  It's book three in the series, but reading the first two is not a prerequisite for enjoying this one.  Helpfully there are footnotes and an appendix for those bits you might be a bit confused on - think Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy rather than boring text book - in fact, there are definite similarities of style to HGG.
Written in first person by Izzy Spellman, 'former' private investigator, it's about family as much as it is about mysteries, and every relationship is intriguing.  If you're anything like me you'll find yourself smiling as you read.  The kind of story to put your feet up with a cup of tea/glass of wine (delete as appropriate) after a busy day, book in hand and enjoy some light-hearted me time.
