Pack your bags, we’re going skiing! 

Chelsea Sponks is quickly settling into her new life on Pendle Island, and slowly getting used to being a witch. The annoying talking cat? Still getting used to that. The almost-empty bank account? Time to get a job. Fast. 

When Chelsea uses the last of her inheritance to keep her friend Adam in employment, he rewards Chelsea and her cousin Lizzy with a free weekend stay at his family’s luxury ski resort, Chalet Roth, on the northern tip of the island. 

The pair jump at the chance for a little relaxation. Things have been hectic on the island since Chelsea helped to solve her aunt’s murder, and she’s become something of a local celebrity. Getting away for a few days will be good. 

Chelsea’s hopes of anonymity quickly crumble upon check-in. The chalet’s owner, Chester Roth, personally welcomes Chelsea to the chalet after recognizing her from the Pendle Island newspaper. The girls have barely sat down in the Chalet’s mountain-top bar when Chelsea trips over a body. 

Now she’s trapped at the top of a mountain in a magical ski chalet, surrounded by a cast of wealthy and elite who all happen to have a connection to the deceased. Biggest of all is Chester, who becomes suspect number one when a key piece of evidence is tied to him. 

With nowhere else to turn, Chester hires Chelsea to clear his name. Now she has a murder to solve before the killer gets away, all while keeping her mischievous cousin and annoying cat in line. Proving Chester’s innocence won’t only keep him out of prison, it will also give Chelsea a much-needed paycheck! 

If that wasn’t enough, there’s a vegetable thief on the prowl, too, but murder and robbery aren’t the only puzzles afoot. Chalet Roth is a boiling pot of paranormal perplexity. 

With their vacation plans up in the air, it might be time to put down the hot chocolate and get down to some mystery-solving, but with all that going on, Chelsea can’t help focusing on the most important question of all… 

Will she even have time to hit the slopes? 

A Witch Before the Storm is the second book in the Pendle Island Witches mystery series. It’s fast, funny, and may contain a sassy animal or two.
