ARC Review: Organized for Murder by Ritter Ames

ebook
Expected publication: February 24th 2014 by Gemma Halliday Publishing 
 Organization expert Kate McKenzie is on track to make her new business, STACKED IN YOUR FAVOR, a hit in small-town Vermont. But when her first client, the wealthy Amelia Nethercutt, is found dead, the job takes a decidedly sinister turn.

Kate thought she and her family were making a fresh start in her husband's hometown, but she quickly learns that small towns can hold big secrets. When her first client is poisoned just after Kate leaves her mansion, she knows she's gotten off to a bad start. But things only get worse when the police find Kate's fingerprints on the murder weapon, suddenly putting her in the position of suspect number one. The stopwatch is ticking for Kate to prove she had nothing to do with the murder, and the odds are further stacked against her when items stolen from the Nethercutt mansion start showing up in the McKenzie home. Now, Kate must trust her methodical skills and expert eye to sort out who is trying to frame her and to find the real killer before she's organized right into a jail cell
  I will start by saying I don't normally ready murder/mystery books. But I did enjoy this one. It was not gruesome or horrible. Just a hint of humor.
This was more about Kate, a super organized woman, who just happened to be brought into the suspect line of her brand new employers murder.
Kate used her organizational skills not just for her home, but to also help get her name cleared.
You can actually get a lot of helpful hints from this book to get your life and home organized, if you wanted.
I really liked her friend Meg, she was the type of friend everyone needs. Especially Kate, new to the area and not having many friends in her lifetime.
Just when you think you might have figured out who was doing what, something else happens and you have to start thinking again. I will say I was surprised with the ending!
