Product Description

Product Description

Things are really bustling at the Witt’s End resort in Northern Minnesota. Clients are vying for one of the few remaining rentals, except Cabin 14—thing is—no one gets out of Cabin 14 alive.

Sadie isn't your typical sixty-four year old senior citizen. She has things she wants to do and shouldn't be expected to solve a murder while trying to prevent an unscrupulous sheriff’s deputy from shutting down the lakeside resort she owns with her straight arrow sister. But that’s exactly what Sadie Witt must do.

When five guests with hidden agendas arrive at Cabin 14, they’re stunned to learn that the flamboyant Sadie is their conduit to the hereafter. Clad in the latest fashion trends--fads typically reserved for those without sagging body parts--and sporting hairdos that make bystanders want to look away but can’t, Sadie realizes one of the guests has been murdered and must work against the clock to untangle the web and prevent further mayhem.

About the Author

Like the main character in her Sadie Witt mystery series, Beth Solheim was born with a healthy dose of imagination and a hankering to solve a puzzle. She learned her reverence for reading from her mother, who was never without a book in her hand. By day, Beth works in Human Resources. By night she morphs into a writer who frequents lake resorts and mortuaries and hosts a ghost or two in her humorous paranormal mysteries. Raised and still living in Northern Minnesota, she resides in lake country with her husband and a menagerie of wildlife critters. She and her husband are blessed with two grown children and two grandsons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and suspenseful 28 Dec 2009
By J. BAUER - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Make sure you have alot of free time before you start reading this suspenseful and entertaining paranormal mystery. The characters seem to come alive after you are into a couple chapters and may make you wonder if you haven't known one or two of them from your past. I am hoping for a sequel and will definitely be watching for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Witt's End - recommended read 27 Dec 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A delightful, fast read with memorable characters. Death coach Sadie Witt assists the newly departed who have missed crossing into the light due to unfinished business, as well as running Witt's End Resort with her sister Jane. All the characters (alive and otherwise) are well painted and engaging. Many have their own deep secrets that will keep the reader turning the pages and looking for answers. The plot is expertly woven and comes together in a way that makes you sit back and smile that "satisfied reader" smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read 5 Mar 2010
By Shirley Priscilla Johnson - Published on
I would like to say before I even begin the review that I loved the cover of this book. It was cozy, yet held a smell of mystery that just drew you immediately to begin the read. Good job.

Inside we meet two sisters, Sadie and Witt, both in their sixties they own and manange a resort in
Minnisota. I liked the sisters right from the start, they were spunky and fun, down-to-earth and real, well maybe one of them had a slight strange side about her, but that was the entire charm of the story. It seems Sadie has been chosen to be a death coach. What is that you ask? It's someone who helps dead people get to where they are suppose to go. Sound creepy? Well, maybe a little, but it truly spices up this outstanding read and keeps your interest peeked.

The ladies are having some other problems besides Sadie guiding dead people across to eternity, it seems a rather cruel man is trying to take their resort away from them and add to that a tragic accident that takes the life of a family, and turns out to be murder and well, you are on one high-rolling roller coaster ride of a read. Adventure, mystery, and even some giggles are coming your way.

I truly enjoyed this book. I experienced many emotions as I read it, from giggles to anger, sadness, wonder and that soft sigh when all turns out well. The local description is exception, I actually wanted to go there for a vacation, and the author brought each character totally to life.
Their personalities screamed from the pages, both good and bad, funny and serious, and by the end of the book you felt as if you knew each one. Great job.

I have to say this is one outstanding read. It has it all, humor, adventure, mystery and many twists and turns that will keep you wondering just how it will all turn out. Beth Solheim has a true winner on her hand with this book. I recommend it highly for those who want a great mystery that is not the norm. Well done, Ms. Solheim.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky and fun! 14 Mar 2010
By jrs3155 - Published on
Sadie and Jane Witt aren't your average 64 year old twin sisters. They lead busy lives running the Witt's End resort in Nothern Minnesota, while trying to figure out how save said resort from an shady local businessman who feels they came into ownership in an undeserving manner. Sadie also has another calling, as a death coach. Turns out Cabin 14 houses people who are having trouble making it to the other side. Add in an on-site funeral parlor, a suspicious death and this mystery comes alive with all sorts of fun, quirky characters and a very good story. I really enjoyed At Witt's End and have learned it's just the beginning of this paranormal-cozy series!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wonderful Inhabitants of Witt's End 4 May 2012
By Nancy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It took me a little while to get into the flow of this book. An initial statement would be made or you would be thrown into the middle of a conversation and then over the next paragraph or two everything that you had just witnessed would be explained. After a while, you begin to see that that is how Sadie is, she has history and since she knows what she is talking about, the reader better catch up before you miss anymore.

Sadie and her twin sister Jane, own Witt's End a resort in Pine Cone Landing, Minnesota. Everything would be nice and fine if the story ended there, but of course, the sisters have their challenges. The first being a local bully that is under the belief that the resort belongs to him since the twin's mother used her feminine wiles to finagle the property from his family and second, Witt's end is where crossers come as their in between place.

Sadie has a gift, she is a death coach and if she did not guide the spirits through their death decisions in the allotted time, the crossers would never realize their death potential. They would slip into oblivion.

Apparently, if a cross has unresolved issues they cannot cross. They first have to solve the problem that held them back from crossing in the first place and then decide if they want to go back through the light or go to the parallel world. All of this has to be completed within thirty days or they will fade away all together like campfire smoke and they would never see their loved ones again. The one catch is that they must return in someone else's light.

There is usually one death coach to an area, but after the death of a close friend, an unexpected new coach appears and it is up to Sadie to tutor and guide; and when the training is completed, the student will see a rainbow at midnight.

When I first started this book I was not so sure, but by the end, I loved the characters. This will probably be the typical three books to a series and then they are through, but I will continue to that end due to the sass of Sadie and the wonderful inhabitants of Witt's End.
