Publisher's Summary

Hello. My name is Stevie Cartwright, and I've been witchless for 30 days. If only there was a support group for down-on-their-luck ex-witches who've had their powers slapped right out of them (literally). Just as I was licking my wounds after returning to my hometown of Ebenezer Falls, Washington, and navigating my suddenly nonmagical existence with the help of my familiar, Belfry, things got sticky. Enter an ex-spy and newly departed spirit named Winterbottom, who's infiltrated my life with his sexy British accent and a couple of requests....

Thanks to Belfry's successful attempt to use me as a human antenna to the afterlife, I can somehow hear Win. I should be ecstatic; helping departed souls used to be my witch specialty. It's like I got the teensiest piece of my old life back. Except Win's dropped me right at a dead woman's feet....

    Story
    "Enjoyed this cozy tremendously! "

    I love this authors humor and writing style, but her other books just have so much sex and sex talk that it I feel it) takes away from her stories But, this series is just right!!! Great characters, fun world building, great paranormal additions, romance but with the details left to the readers imagination and so funny!

    "Great cozy story!"

    This was the most delightfully entertaining book that I have read in long time. It is a fun, sarcastic, small-town mystery novel. Stevie, Win, and Belfry were all great characters. Stevie is a witch who lost her powers when she was slapped by a warlock. Win is a spirit, former spy, and Stevie’s generous benefactor. He is the only spirit that Stevie can still communicate with. Belfry is her cotton ball bat familiar.

    Once Stevie becomes powerless, she must leave the supernatural town. She returns to her childhood home town and that is where all the action takes place. Outside of witches, warlocks, familiars and spirits there are no other supernatural characters in the story. No gratuitous sex or swearing makes it refreshing reading material and it is not a teen story!

    Do not expect an involved mystery with twist and turns. This is fun read with entertaining dialog with banter that is witty and snark .

    Story
    "A little disappointing"
    What did you like best about Witch Slapped? What did you like least?

    I love Dakota Cassidy. I'm not sure if I was just not in the mood or what but this book was not my favorite. It was a little boring and slow. The idea was good but I just didn't get much out of it. I will probably get the sequel from the library because I still LOVE Cassidy and will will always read her stuff.


    Would you recommend Witch Slapped to your friends? Why or why not?

    No - I like Dakota Cassidy and would recommend any of her other stories before this one.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Meh.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Would be a straight to video movie (do they still do that?)

    "Book is great but..."

    Editing blows. Loooong pauses between sentences in the first few chapters. Very distracting and irritating. Story fun thus far.

    Story
    "Ok story, terrible narration!"

    I felt like I was sitting in an elementary school class being read to by a student helper. Many long and unnecessary pauses, annoyingly high pitched voice for Belfry, and the sometimes monotone quality of her voice made for a very difficult time sticking with this book to the end. I found myself drifting off on my own thoughts and even put me to sleep a time or two. The storyline was just ok. There isn't much motivation to keep me going with this series especially if the same narrator is used.

    "slow but did pick up"

    This was a pretty good story, a little slow at first but it got interesting. My only real negative is I positively hate the voice used for Bel the bat. I will probably read the next book because that voice annoys me so much.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 1/2
    A fun start to a new series for Ms. Cassidy. I really enjoyed listening to this story. Ms. Cassidy writes a fun, sarcastic and mystery filled story. I loved Stevie. Not only does she have to find her place in the this new world she has been through into, but she does it so well. Okay maybe there is a little kicking, screaming, crying and murder allegations. But you know just another day in the life, right? But Stevie is a fighter and she will not let a little thing like murder keep her down.
    Belfry. Oh my goodness I want a cotton ball bat familiar!!! He is just awesome.
    And Win.. Let’s talk about Stevie’s yummy sounding (he is british) ghostly spy!! I have really high hopes for Win. I can’t wait to see what and how Ms. Cassidy handles him in the future.
    Hollie Jackson does a good job narrating this story. There were a few small things that bugged me in the audio version. There were a few really strangely long pauses. I am not sure if this was an editing issue or not. But at one point the pause was so long I looked at my phone to make sure the book was still playing. There was one time that the same line was repeated, again I am not sure if this was an editing issue or how Ms. Cassidy wrote the story.
    All in all this was a great start to a great series and I can’t wait to see what to Stevie, Win and Belfry.

    "Don't bother"

    Narrator is extremely poor. She pauses too much between sentences to the point that I can't even listen to it anymore. Didn't get past the first chapter.

    "Uggg"

    I can’t actually listen long enough to evaluate the story. The long pauses between EVERY sentence is so annoying, I can’t even last 10 min.
    It’s sad. The narrator has a nice enough voice, I just can’t deal with the delivery.
