My favorite dynamic duo is back! I love everything about the series but my favorite part is the comradery between Kate and Meg; the light teasing, professional brainstorming, emotional support and balance they offer each other is exactly the kind of friendships that I value in my life. I enjoy the fact that unlike too many cozy mystery series the stories vary based on the projects and people with whom they work, I want to be comfortable reading them because the characters are familiar and enjoyable and that is the continuity that Ritter Ames brings to her books. I also appreciate that, in spite of some insecurities, Kate is happily married to a man with whom she shares mutual respect and a lovely flirtation. The person the team works with in this book is a strong intelligent woman who runs an animal rescue. Much to Liz’s surprise, the organizational calendar that she published has been so successful that her publisher hires Kate and Meg to stage photo shoots for the next calendar. This job is quite different from earlier ones but falls well within their skill set. Meeting the animals, pigmy goats, a pig that was raised in a basement, and a mixture of dogs and horses is delightful as is watching the team work to meld the request of the publisher while trying to honor the image of the rescue. Soon murder casts a pall over the project...the murder of a woman that no one likes and with whom Liz has had words. Kate’s natural instinct is to protect her new friend and client and the best way to do that is to find the killer while keeping to the project deadline.

Another chance to solve an organized mystery with Kate and Meg? Yes, please! I just love a book where I become so comfortable with the lead characters and their families. Colorful kids, husbands, and wives, and I could tell you about each of their personalities. It's like hanging out with old friends. But a few of these particular friends have an accidental nose for crime which I quite enjoy, including the scary, suspenseful parts. This time we're adding in rescue animals, a truly likeable character named Liz with a soft spot for horses, and a quartet or curious, tiny goats to boot. (So fun.) Enjoyed the rural atmosphere and all the critters.. As a bonus, I'm not one for self-help books, but I picked up some useful and entertaining organizational tips I will actually apply to my own life. Third in a series and I think best if read in order, but it also stands quite well on its own. This is a great way to pass some relaxing moments and just enjoy a good read. All in all, it's a just-right mix of cozy and suspense. Already looking forward to the next adventure!

Ritter Ames is a talented author. As she's shown in the past, and shows again with "Organized for Scheduled Sabotage," Ames can spin a good tale in which she wraps the mystery, the suspense, and the personal lives of her characters all together in a tight, readable package. This she does again with "Organized for Scheduled Sabotage." The pacing is different in "Organized for Scheduled Sabotage" than in her Bodies of Art mysteries, with more intimate looks into the domestic lives of her main characters--but that's a good thing and fits the story line and the tone of the Organized series very well. Good reading! Keep them coming, Ritter!

This is a really good series filled with interesting characters and always a murder mystery to he solved by the heroines (and perhaps by me if I'm lucky). I'm ready to read the next one!

I couldn’t wait to read the next installment of the Organized Mystery staring Kate and Meg. Besides getting to read a fabulous mystery, there are always great organizing tips and this one even has a fabulous cookie recipe! I look forward to making these cookies with my grandson! As always with this author, the lead characters are well developed and likeable (I have to like the main characters in a book or I won’t continue reading it!) The sub characters are also well developed but not always likeable which is also acceptable. You have to have diverse characters! I love the continuing family dynamic and the friendship between the two women. You want to keep reading to find out what else these two will stumble upon! I look forward to the next installment!

In Organized for Scheduled Sabotage, the latest in Ritter Ames Organized for Murder series, Kate and Meg were hired to help organize a photo shoot. When the girls went back to pick up missed notes, they discovered a body. Liz, the woman they were hired to help, is a suspect. Kate and Meg believe she is innocent. They can’t help getting involved! Of course, their favorite detective, Johnson is called as well. Not only did I enjoy the book but I picked up a few organizing tips as well. Thanks, Ritter Ames, for another enjoyable read.

The McKenzie & Berman families are great characters. Organizing tips center on juggling a business, farm and family life. This one even comes with yummy recipes at the end. When Liz Tillman's publisher hires Stacked In Your Favor, Kate & Meg find themselves on an animal rescue farm. Their best laid plans are derailed when a body turns up in Liz's barn office. Knowing more than they think they know leaves Kate in the killer's cross-hairs.
