About the Book
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.

My Thoughts
With a professional organizer as the main character—turned prime suspect and then lead "investigator"—Organized for Murder was a fun read. At times I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of characters, but that ended up adding to the enjoyment as one after the other became my prime suspect.

I enjoyed getting to know Kate and her family. At times I wanted to shout, "Are you crazy?! Don't do that!" But I suppose it wouldn't be a very fun book if everyone played by the rules all the time. *wink* I can see that she will be a fun character to follow in other books.

My one complaint is that there seemed to be a lot of discussion about what was happening in the book and the action was a little slower. However, it was still a good book! [3.5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from the author through Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours in exchange for my fair and honest review.

Note: While most of the books I review on this site are Christian fiction, this book is written for the general market. There is a small amount of "language" sprinkled throughout, but otherwise this is a clean read.
