Ritter Ames is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Organized Mysteries series and the Bodies of Art Mysteries series. When she's not writing or brainstorming new mysteries Ritter is usually trying to get her favorite yellow lab to stay out of the pond, or keep her grouchy black cat from trying to give the dog away on Freecycle. Ritter would love to live on a boat and write from far flung locations around the globe, but the dog would constantly have to be fished from the water, and her husband and cat would just complain endlessly about the dog's smell, so staying on land seems to be the only good option to keep her sanity and not get sidetracked from writing.Ritter tries to blog regularly at http://ritterames.com/ and subscribe there to get the latest news about upcoming releases, and inside scoops on her characters and series. She uses her Pinterest boards at http://www.pinterest.com/ritterames/ to capture great places and ideas she wants to use in both series. Follow her blog and boards to learn more about Ritter and her upcoming books. You can find her Facebook author page at https://www.facebook.com/RitterAmesBooks and Follow her on Twitter @RitterAmes.

First of all, these books definitely do not work as stand-alones. It's been awhile since I read the last book in this series and I was really floundering as I struggled to remember characters and previously revealed plot twists that are all part of the series arc plot line. The story is pure adve...

This fourth in the series of Bodies of Art Mysteries carries on with Laurel still trying to save masterpieces. However, there are others out there (at least two and now possibly, three) who have other intentions for these masterpieces.In the last book, Laurel discovered someone on her team was a dou...

I never knew there was so much action and intrigue in the art world until I started reading Ritter Ames series with Laurel Beacham. You can't trust anyone and I do mean anyone. I'm finding this to be a great series and am liking it better with every book that I read. Laurel and Jack, while still hid...
