I'm glad Lutz has continued with these character through an additional couple of works. The beleaguered Izzy Spellman is the boss of Spellman Investigations, after the events of document 5. Chaos reigns as those clever, passive aggressive family members choose to do as little as possible, whenever they want. Izzy finds some satisfaction by helping her wealthy employer Edward Slayter with both hiding a disease and figuring out who is out to get him. Small cameos by previous characters round out the story, as do a few new characters, including a playmate for Sydney, who is exhibiting a new generation of Spellman tendencies.

Once again another solid story about the Spellman clan, as told through the whiskey/scotch/bourbon/wine/beer-colored
glasses of Izzy, middle child and former-ish deliquent who staged a hostile takeover of the family business back in
Document #5. While there were the hijinks that always occur during each document, The Last Word dealt with not one but
two more serious subjects (cancer and Alzheimer's). 

Not going to rehash the story, because then you wouldn't want to read it. Let's just say that this book reads like the
end of the series (I hope it's not!), which leaves me a bit sad, but just like life there's not always going be to a HEA.

    Fun Follow Up

    Great story! Stop reading now if you don't want a spoiler........................................................................................................................................................My heart broke over the Henry thing, but at the same time it was SO real. I'd give it 5 stars if the story had ended with Izzy's point of view.

    A few years ago, word spread that Lisa Lutz was retiring her Spellman clan after the fourth book and I was one of many who were horrified to hear that news. Then, lo and behold, a fifth book showed up and, now, number 6 in the series. I don’t know what changed the author’s mind but I couldn’t be happier.

    Izzy Spellman is a character I’ve come to love and I wish I could spend real-life time with her. Alas, that is not to be, so I have to get my fill of her company through her books and this latest is no disappointment. Her squirrelly family is just as much fun as they’ve always been—who else would carry on inter-family warfare with boxer shorts and fluffy slippers?—and, although the cases being investigated are not exactly earthshaking, going along for the ride is an adventure in itself.

    I especially appreciated baby sister Rae’s development of a new way to bring in much-needed income and and Izzy certainly needs to find out who’s taking advantage of a tycoon’s weakness but there really are two primary mysteries…will the family survive Izzy’s hostile takeover of the investigation business and what will it take to get a three-year-old despot named Princess Banana to approve of Izzy?

    Anyone who enjoys a good deal of humor in their mystery reading will love The Last Word and all the other Spellman books and I’m already eagerly awaiting #7.

    I'm glad Lutz has continued with these character through an additional couple of works. The beleaguered Izzy Spellman is the boss of Spellman Investigations, after the events of document 5. Chaos reigns as those clever, passive aggressive family members choose to do as little as possible, whenever they want. Izzy finds some satisfaction by helping her wealthy employer Edward Slayter with both hiding a disease and figuring out who is out to get him.
