Daily Review: Organized for Homicide by Ritter Ames
October 3, 2018
Who knew planning a cross-country move could be so deadly?
Organization expert Kate McKenzie is looking forward to her newest consignment: organize the cross-country move for a divorced father and his two children.
But when a dead body turns up, Kate’s carefully organized plans are thrown into chaos. Was it an accident? Or murder? Kate aims to find out when the victim’s teenage daughter becomes the police’s lead suspect.
As a mother herself, she just can’t let the girl not only lose a mother but possibly lose her freedom and future as well. While the police follow the chain of evidence, Kate follows her gut, leading her on a dangerous investigation that could result in more than one death if she doesn’t watch her step…
Organized for Homicide is the second title in the popular Organized Mysteries series from USA TODAY bestselling author Ritter Ames, which features a small town New England setting and interesting characters, along with humor, strong family and friendship ties, and absorbing cozy mysteries.
I really enjoyed the second installment of this organizational themed mystery series! The mystery portion was good enough to keep me guessing who the killer was up until about three-fourths of the way through.
I really like the way the main character has grown since the first book. And……I love how the author weaves in all the normal day to day responsibilities of being a mom and all of the varying duties that go along with taking care of a home, raising a young family and trying to work/have a career……
I could absolutely relate to her. This made the story a bit more realistic and flow beautifully! I am looking forward to reading the 3rd book!
Having read the first Kate McKenzie Mystery I was really excited when I saw this second one had been released. Right away, I wasn’t disappointed.
The tips alone are fantastic, but Kate and Meg are really fun and down to earth characters. If they lived in my neighborhood, I would want to be their friend.
Ritter Ames is a master of detail and weaves a mystery that keeps me guessing whodunnit, but I think what I really love about these books is the attention to slice-of-life.
When Kate isn’t sleuthing, she has her twin girls to take care of, and those mother/daughter scenes are touching breaks from the mayhem of murder.
Fantastic second in series! I can’t wait for the next.

In my younger years, I would occasionally lose sleep over a man. This week I lost sleep over two women. Before you come to the wrong conclusion, I’m referring to Kate and Meg, also known as Batgirl and Wonder Woman.
The whole story is a thrill ride, if you are reading this review you either already own the book and you are nodding in agreement or you are considering getting it.
Well, hurry up, do it.
I also decided I should visit Vermont because it sounds so much like where I come from, Northern Italy. And I now know how to pack my china for my next move. What else can I say you don’t already know? Ritter Ames is a great storyteller.
Now, about the cat. Is it just me or do we not know if it’s a she or a he? I wanted to make a comment about the Real Estate agents in the story, without giving away too much…all real estate agents are not created equal. There, I said it.
And yes, she had me going there for a while. Now I can resume my routine until the next book comes out. Thanks, Ritter.
