ORANIZED FOR MURDERlarge banner314


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000031_00001]

Release Date: February 24
Approximately 250 pages


The right business hook is the most important criteria for success, and Kate McKenzie thinks she’s found a perfect one.  As an organizational expert, Kate knows Americans are running out of space and money, and renting more storage units is usually not the best solution. Starting an organizational business, Stacked in Your Favor, in her new hometown of Hazelton, Vermont seems like an answer to her family’s budget problems and an answer to southern Vermonters’ prayers.  Business looks good when she snags collector, Amelia Nethercutt, as her first client, signing on to organize the wealthy woman’s eccentrically-filled mansion.  But things take a turn beyond chaos when Amelia is murdered and Kate’s fingerprints are found on the poison that killed her.


I have such mixed feelings about this book. Kate grated on my nerves – primarily it was her OCD compulsions (at least that is how I interpret the actions) and being wishy washy at times. However, outside of that the writing was good and I really had no clue who the killer was and was quite surprised when it was revealed who the person was….NEVER saw that one coming but maybe should have based on some earlier parts of the book.

Great organizational tips at the beginning of most chapters and at the end in the appendix, I’m sure my husband would appreciate them!

We give this book 4 paws and it could become a good new cozy series.
