Book Review-Organized for Homicide (Organized Mysteries Book 2)-Ritter Ames

Thursday, January 10, 2019

This is the second book I have read by Ritter Ames in the Organized Mysteries series. The first Organized for Scheduled Sabotage (see my review here) was full of great ideas on how to organize and how to refurbish old items interspersed within the story line. This one gives lots of really helpful advice on how to pack up a house and generally declutter. I will be taking some of this advice on getting rid of or storing some of the clutter that surrounds me in my apartment! I would like to mention that all the books I have read can be read as stand alone.

The husband and wife are divorcing--he is moving with two of the children to California from the small town but very large house they live in. The wife is moving into a condo with the oldest daughter somewhere in the general region so the girl can finish high school and continue with her sports plan.

The husband hires Kate to organize the move for them---She, with the help of her friend start this massive job. Of course the Real Estate agents are trying to get in ahead of time being a general pain. Then the unthinkable happens-Kate had to return after a hard days work because her friend left her cell phone in the kitchen. As they were about to walk in--a body fell from an upstairs window! The oldest daughter was accused--but Kate knew she did not do this and with the help of her friend proceeded to try to prove the girl's innocence.

There were quite a number of people who could have done it---Was Kate able to figure out the real culprit? You will be as surprised as I was at who it was!

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Ritter Ames is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Organized Mysteries series and the Bodies of Art Mysteries series. When she's not writing or brainstorming new mysteries Ritter is usually trying to get her favorite yellow lab to stay out of the pond, or keep her grouchy black cat from trying to give the dog away on Freecycle. Ritter would love to live on a boat and write from far flung locations around the globe, but the dog would constantly have to be fished from the water, and her husband and cat would just complain endlessly about the dog's smell, so staying on land seems to be the only good option to keep her sanity and not get sidetracked from writing.

Ritter tries to blog regularly at and subscribe there to get the latest news about upcoming releases, and inside scoops on her characters and series. She uses her Pinterest boards at to capture great places and ideas she wants to use in both series. Follow her blog and boards to learn more about Ritter and her upcoming books.
