Link to Goodreads summaries:

I tore through these humorous novels about a family of private investigators who investigate each other almost more than their clients.  The amusing tone and quirky characters (and bad decisions) were a fun diversion during a stressful time.  Because of the family’s line of work, the author is able to put a slightly different twist on a dysfunctional family.

For those who want a sarcastic female character who doesn’t put much stock in authority figures or doing a little breaking and entering, readers might also like the Veronica Mars franchise (TV show, movie, & books).

For a less adept sleuth with quirky characters and a humorous tone, the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich would be a good suggestion.

Rating: 3 stars across the board
