Daily Review: Organized for Masked Motives by Ritter Ames
October 30, 2019
Fun might be on the schedule for Halloween, but Kate & Meg find crime doesn’t take a holiday.
Kate McKenzie never dreamed when she started her business, Stacked in Your Favor, that she’d spend nearly as much time crime solving as organizing.
However, with Halloween approaching, and too many items on the to-do list, she and Meg Berman find themselves in another puzzling—and risky—dilemma. Where every answer leads to another question.
And more danger…
Please note: This title originally appeared in a shorter version in the Halloween anthology, Midnight Mysteries. New content has been added to this release.
Organized for Masked Motives is a holiday novelette title in the popular Organized Mysteries series from USA TODAY bestselling author Ritter Ames.
The series features a small town New England setting and interesting characters, along with humor, strong family and friendship ties, and absorbing cozy mysteries.
Mysterious actions of the new neighbor have Meg and Kate on the trail amid Halloween costumes, cookies, husbands and excited children.
The story brought back the rush of school mornings and pleasant memories of growing grade schoolers. I love my visits to Hazelton and the mysterious adventures Kate and Meg get up to.
A terrific read!
Kate MacKenzie and her partner are looking forward to the Halloween celebration, especially since they were helping out with the school carnival, costumed as their favorite pretend identities of Wonder Woman and Batgirl.
But first they need to complete their next organization job estimate.
But when Kate’s twins start talking about the cat-witch lady, they decide to put the girls’ rumors to rest and pay a welcome visit to a new neighbor.
But the visit only unsettles them and they decide to investigate her further. Will our dynamic duo find out her secret?
This was a fun Halloween story, keeping true to the main characters and their love of family and friends.

Kate wouldn’t have thought much of it—except she’d seen the woman’s phone. The message read, “You can’t hide.”
Halloween in Vermont brings out the kid in everyone, despite the threatening snow. Kate and Meg have an organizational job in their sites when Kate’s twin girls ask a strange question that sets the duo over to the new neighbor’s house to do a bit of “sugar cookie sleuthing”.
What they find makes them aware that something just doesn’t add up, and with typical Batgirl and Wonder Woman “powers” they start quietly looking into just what’s up, and find more than apples in the cart.
Told with Ritter Ames’ sense of humor, these cozies are just the recipe for a curl up with a hot “cuppa” and in no time, you’re in the middle of a wonderful escape.
