5.0 out of 5 stars Outwitted is a must have 24 Jan 2011
By shaydenfl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to say it, Outwitted is going to be one of your favorites. Ever hear of a death coach? Neither had I until I read the book. The absolutely lovable main character, Sadie Witt, helps her ghostly guests "Pass On" while at the same time finding out who exactly "Done It". Very few of the books I have read lately grab you and draw you in quite like this one did. I recommend it to everyone I meet. Read it, and trust me, you'll enjoy it!
4.0 out of 5 stars There Is Never A Dull Moment When You Are A Death Coach 15 April 2014
By Nancy - Published on Amazon.com

It is so disappointing when an entertaining series ends after two books. I enjoy Sadie and Pinecone Landing. I even enjoy her sister Jane and her stodgy ways. But alas, it appears that there will be no more.

Witt's Landing, a small resort in Northern Minnesota, is the place where soles wait their time to enter a parallel world. Apparently, not all souls pass right away, a few are earth bound until they finish up their business here. When they remain, they appear to Sadie Witt, a death coach, and spend their time in Cabin 14 until they can solve their dilemma and find another soul that is on the verge of departing.

Since Mr. Bakke's death in book #1, Sadie is now the funeral director's assistant and if you know Sadie and her penchant for interesting outfits and hairstyles, this is not the best fit, but what are the options. Nan needs help and if you have a funeral home on the grounds of a vacation resort, you cannot be too picky.

See how interesting this book can be?

When the manager of the resort is tricked into renting Cabin 12 to the funeral director's ex-husband and skeletal remains are discovered underneath, Sadie and her gang - including a man that is a priest but does not want anyone to know, a local man that had died during a simple operation, a young death coach in training and a darling little girl that is lost and desperately wants to see her father before it is her time to leave; set out to discover the identity of the dearly departed all the while an infant is abducted from the local hospital and a local politician is up to his eyeballs in crime.

There is never a dull moment when you are a death coach, a funeral assistant and the best friend to a sister that you could not be any more different than, but Sadie loves passionately and there is nothing that she will not do for those that she calls family.

I actually read the second one first, and HAD to go back and read the first one, to see how this all started. The second book seemed to flow smoother but this laid the ground work, and am looking forward to the next in this series
4.0 out of 5 stars Sadie is back 15 April 2011
By David F. - Published on Amazon.com
A peaceful cabin resort in northern Minnesota which is owned by an eccentric woman and her sister ~ add a corrupt judge who believes one of the cabins on the resort should belong to him ~ throw in a baby kidnapping ring ~ a couple of souls needing to complete a task before entering the next realm ~ and you've got another Sadie Witt mystery.

Sadie is back and feisty as ever in Beth Solheim's latest book, Outwitted. As a death coach (helping souls pass to the other side), Sadie's job is hard enough when dealing with strangers. It becomes more complex and personal when the decedents are people she knows. It makes it next to impossible when one of them is an impish six-year-old who doesn't know that she's dead.

When a baby is kidnapped from the maternity ward at the local hospital, Sadie not only has to deal with frightened guests, the law, and Clay (the drunkard ex-husband of Nan, the funeral director and best friend) but also making sure two souls cross over before their time runs out.

Throughout, my favorite scenes take place during the interactions of the sisters. Sadie and her twin sister Jane are alike insofar as they are both sixty-four - from there the resemblance ends. Sadie wears miniskirts, thongs, sports a snake tattoo that people mistake for a worm, spikes her hair, and acts like a teen (sometimes tween); Jane dresses conservatively and acts older than her years. While they are constantly sniping at one another, the love is clearly shown through the writing. Although, when Sadie gets a picture of Jane and posts an ad on a dating website without Jane knowing, I don't think I'd be as forgiving as Jane. Still, it's scenes like that that keeps the story fresh.

`Jane paced in front of the kitchen table. "No wonder he knew so much about me. What did you tell him?" Before Sadie answered, Jane added, "Now I'll never be able to face him."

"That's ridiculous. If you like him, what's wrong with seeing him again?"

"He'll think I'm not capable of finding my own dates."

"He already knows. I explained it when I posted your photo on the website." Sadie grimaced as Jane let out another shriek' p.86

All combined, this makes for an enjoyable, and quick read. Although Outwitted is a stand alone novel, I still recommend reading Witt's End first just for a deeper understanding of Sadie and Jane Witt. Solheim writes colorful, eccentric, and flawed characters as well as a good description of life in a northern Minnesota resort. Outwitted is a light mystery, perfect for taking to the beach or the park for a nice and relaxing afternoon read.
