A family outing in a national forest seemed like the best kind of R&R to Meg Berman. Even Kate McKenzie was convinced after learning a fully equipped cabin was part of the plan. When an afternoon scavenger hunt in the woods ends the day with a dead body, however, the natural beauty around them takes a decidedly sinister twist. Wors

I love Ritter Ames and read all her books. The latest in the Organized Mysteries didn't disappoint.

In this book, Kate McKenzie and her neighbor, Meg, had planned a simple weekend with their families at a cabin in Vermont. Unfortunately, murder seems to always pursue them! The unconventional organizing tips Mrs. Ames adds just makes the book even better!

The Bodies of Art Mysteries, written by Mrs. Ames, are wonderful as well.

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Book 4 in the Organized Mystery series is only 13 chapters but the tips are very enlightening and the camping friendly recipes look easy to make and good to eat.

The McKenzie & Berman families are finally taking a cottage/camping vacation weekend before school starts again. The most recent occupant of the rural Vermont cottage is Gil's workmate Paul Gaines, a mob crime reporter. When Kate & Meg find Paul dead, they quickly put bits and pieces together but not before the murdered confronts

I always look forward to reading about Kate and Meg. They are professional organizers of anything and everything who always seem to come across a dead body. In this book, they and their families go camping for the weekend and Kate and Meg manage to find a body of someone they know. I love the helpful camping hints the author puts at the beginning of each chapter! I highly recommend this wonderful book!

“Keith chuckled softly and stopped her words with a kiss. When they broke, he said, “I know, Katie. You and Meg stumble into more trouble than any two women I’ve ever seen. We should have brought the cat so he could have gone with you”

Getting ready for another school year is hard enough; with 4 kids between them, Kate,Meg and their husbands decide the weekend before school starts that camping together might just get everyone prepared. Despite a night with a blowhard newsman, everyone seems to be

What a fun (fast for me) read! The story starts out with an old New England proverb, that I have heard most of my life, and then jumps right in to the story. This time, Kate and Meg are taking a little time off – a camping trip with the family that is a teeny bit out of Kate’s comfort zone. Never fear! Meg and Kate’s husband Keith are there to help her conquer her OCD fears/tendencies and get thru this with flying colors. I don’t want to tell you too much about the story but you KNOW these two f ...more
With back-to-school planning right around the corner, Katie and Meg and their family plan a weekend camping trip. But their plans go awry when the female duo stumble over yet another dead body. Fears of a mob hit cut short this otherwise enjoyable nature vacation. This story is filled with great hints for successful camping trips, reminiscent of girl scout (or boy scout) training, such as using crayons for temporary candles, or filling toilet paper tubes with dryer lint as a fire starter. I enjo ...more

Love getting to spend time with Kate and Meg and the rest of the Berman and McKenzie families. This time, we get to tag along on a camping trip the families take in the summer in the beautiful montains, just before school begins again in the fall.

The families decide to vacation together for a long weekend as a last hurrah to summer vacation. They stay in a cabin that was being used by an associate of Meg's husband Gil and owned by Gil's editor. While there, the women discover the associate murde

Camping fun and a murder mystery!

After a hectic weekend with our brands O was thrilled to sink into my chair with Ritter Ames' 'newest mystery . Kate and Meg ---talented organizers--- are on a family camping trip and still manage to come across a victim of foul play. The tips are genuinely interesting and helpful, but what keeps me returning to each new instalment are the characters and the plot twists. I recommend this to anyone who wants engaging characters who are people you could meet in you

LOVED it. The best part of any good book is spending time with the character, and Kate and Meg are two of my favorites. Their warmth, casual humor, and intelligence draw me as much as they would in real life. I also enjoy watching the interaction between the couples. Things aren't always smooth,especially for Meg and Gil, but they show that they still love each other.
I just went my first camping trip with them. It didn't turn out as planned when those murder magnets I adore found a body of a je

When a journalist friend of Meg's husband accidentally lets slip to the mob that he is staying at Meg's house, Kate, Meg, and their families decide to take a weekend off and go camping. During their first night there, Kate and Meg discover the murdered body of the journalist. Now, Kate and Meg must find the killer before the killer harms Meg's family.
This is a light and easy read. I enjoyed the helpful hints for camping and as an added bonus, there are two chapters of a new Cozy Mysteries seri

Kate and her friend Meg can't avoid murder, even on a short camping trip with their families. It seemed like the best time to get away from it all with school staring soon. Upon their arrival they decide to go into the woods on a scavenger hunt....but finding the corpse of somebody you know...not part of the plan. Paul, the corpse, was a crime reporter and that makes for a long list of possible suspects. Meg and Kate get down to serious investigation, something they are all too familiar with.

I loved reading more of Meg, Kate and their families---they are wonderful characters! As always, the organizing tips are interesting and clever. A simple camping trip becomes complicated when finding a dead body interrupts their family fun getaway at the cabin. The dialog between the friends and their family is so natural and normal--- which is why Kate and Meg appeal to me. A fun, fast read.

I would really like to give this 3 1/2 stars. The plot was interesting but there were several typos and I particularly found the constantly changing POV confusing. Most of the characters were well drawn so I rounded up to 4 stars.

Kate and Meg think they will be enjoying a weekend camping with their families. Wrong. They find a body and they are determined to find the killer. Love the tips at the beginning of each chapter.

Fun, quick read. Too short for much character or plot development but sometimes it's nice to have an entertaining quick read.

“McKenzie Family Favorite Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chunk Choco-Chip Cookies Ingredients ¾ cup packed brown sugar ¾ cup honey (the original recipe didn’t call for honey and had 1¾ cup brown sugar instead—but I like the split so that I get the sweet taste honey adds, while still getting the brown sugar kick) 1 cup crunchy peanut butter (the original said creamy; I just like nuts) 6 Tablespoons butter softened (if I use margarine I use “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” in cube, not soft tub margarine) 3 eggs, slightly beaten 1¾ teaspoons baking soda 1teaspoon vanilla extract 3¾ to 4½ cups quick oats (not instant, but cooks in a couple of minutes), I add oats until I get the consistency I want—usually, it’s around 4 cups because of the honey 1 bag of Nestle’s Chunks semi-sweet pieces. (I’ve tried other chocolate additions, but I think this size—even with the chocolate in chunks so there are fewer pieces—are better than more pieces that are smaller throughout the cookie. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Beat sugar, peanut butter, and margarine until creamy. Add eggs, baking soda, and vanilla, mix well. Blend in oats and chocolate chunks. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray like Pam (original recipe said to use ungreased, but chunks will make it stick). Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing to racks to cool. Makes 2 dozen 4-inch cookies.” 0 likes
