Witch Slapped by Dakota Cassidy

Ebenezer Falls, Washington...a sleepy burg or murder central?

The game is afoot...as amateur sleuth Stevie Cartwright plunges head first into a murder investigation. With twists, turns, and suspects aplenty, this one will keep you guessing from start to finish.

USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Dakota Cassidy serves up mayhem and murder in Witch Slapped, Book 1 of her series, Witchless In Seattle Mysteries.

"Oh, good. Not a problem. I'll invoke the Gods of Pilates. I'm sure they'd be happy to help. Hang on just one sec while I dial them up. Oh, wait. I can't. Know why I can't? Because my hands are tied behind my back with zip ties, Win!"

A rib-tickling cozy mystery complete with an ex-witch, a dead British spy, a cotton ball bat, and a cast of suspects that will keep you guessing right up to the end! Join the hunt for a murderer with Stevie, Winterbottom, and Belfry, in a race against time as the local police prepare an eight by ten cell for our intrepid ex-witch.

What's a girl to do when she's a broke, shunned ex-witch with a very tiny, very hungry bat familiar named Belfry to feed?

Hello. My name is Stevie Cartwright, and I've been witchless for thirty 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, WA, and navigating my suddenly non-magical existence with the help of my familiar, the only friend I have left in the world—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.

Madam Zoltar, the town's beloved fake medium, has been murdered, and Win wants me to catch the killer.

My old life won't be worth much if it gets me whacked before my new life has barely begun--and that seems to be exactly what the killer has planned!

This cozy mystery has a complete cast of oddball characters from witches to ghosts and bats to psychics. Witchless In Seattle Mysteries is a spin-off of Dakota Cassidy's bestselling paranormal romance series, A Paris, Texas Romance.

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 5 Narration 5 Story 5 Quirky, funny and utterly madcap as the rush to solve the mystery of who murdered the fake psychic Madam Zoltar, and just how Stevie managed to arrive home minus her powers, fall under her familiar, Belfry’s influence, and just why there is a spy (in spirit form) giving her hints and tips. Dakota Cassidy managed to spin an utterly plausible mystery in the middle of an utterly implausible set up with witches, spirits, magic and mortals all mixing together in ways unexpected and fresh. Stevie hasn’t had things easy for a while now – her powers are gone, yet she can still communicate with spirits and her familiar, Belfry, hasn’t deserted her. Yet. While the mortal world is looking at her as the prime suspect, she’s obviously got no reason to be – and a whole host of supporting characters (some more developed than others) to help her dig through clues, dead-ends and suspects to come up with the correct solution. Fast paced, snarky and full of twists and quirks that keep you guessing just as much as they delight with unique moments, this is a great start to a new series, and one that you should grab and listen right away. Narration for this story is provided by Hollie Jackson, and her work is quickly becoming some of my favorite, particularly with quirky characters and fast-paced plots: in fact, she’s a perfect match for Stevie: youthful, adventurous and rather offhandedly snarky without crossing over into overdone. Other characters are distinct and clear, Jackson’s narrative style tends to the subtle: presenting the story clearly and cleanly, taking moments that are needed to absorb information (or laugh) without disrupting the flow or losing interest. A great intro to both author and narrator and a favorite start of a paranormal cozy for me. I received an AudioBook copy of the tile from Tantor Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

All books about witches turned detectives make the same mistake; the authors think the books are funny. Instead, the witches are really stupid women with no clue to solving a crime and are not entertaining. Not interested in continuing series.

This was a refreshing change from the garbage I have been trudging thru. I thought it was me losing my sense of humor. Not so. This book was light hearted with no actual witchcraft or devil worship of any sorts.

This book was a very fun book to read. Stevie, the main character, is funny and likable. The side characters are engaging as well. The story line flowed and kept me interested until the end. I couldn't put it down.

Too stupid to live, but she did, and I hope, since the author wrote sequels that she gets smarter.Being a woman myself, I'm not amused when the heroine does one foolish, inane thing after another. I gave 3 stars because this author writes well, no typos or misspellings, I just didn't like any of the characters except Belphry her familiar, who is a bat. Maybe it's just me, if you like your characters dumber than dirt then by all means give this book a try.

A very enjoyable read. Except for the fact that it's a murderer Kwho done it this book would be rated G. Characters are nice and interesting but mostly this is very predictable.

I enjoyed this book and reading about the problems the main character kept falling into. I had no trouble with the premise, but Belfry felt a little out of place. I'm not sure where the series is headed, but she's going to make a fine, fun medium.

Loved this witchy book! Look forward to the next in the series. Cassidy has written some very colorful characters that the reader can easily love or despise, depending on their behavior. The location is so succinctly written that I could hear the Sound and smell the salt air.

This is the first book by Dakota Cassidy but it won't be the last! Love the quirky characters. The plot line moves along and "who done it" isn't obvious. I would love to live in this house! Ghosts and all.

Witch Slapped by Dakota Cassidy is the first book in the series I just discovered and I can't wait to start Book 2!! I read from beginning to end and was entranced and eager for more. Witches, warlocks, familiars, ghosts, romance, mystery, intrigue, danger it's got it all. Recommended.

Life hasn't been easy for Stevie Cartwright. A witch that has lost her powers, she has been kicked out of her coven and has moved back to her hometown of Ebenezer Falls, WA. As if that's not bad enough, she stumbles upon a dead body and now everybody thinks she's a murderer. On the bright side, she has her familiar Belfry, a bat, to help her, and through him she has connected to a very generous ghost named Win. He will give her a huge pile of money if she can solve the murder mystery. I thought this was a great start to a new series! Stevie is a very fun and sympathetic lead character, Belfry is a fantastic sidekick, and I think things are brewing with Win. I have questions about Win and Stevie's backgrounds that I know will be answered in future books, and those questions will definitely keep me reading. Although I figured out the "bad guy" relatively early on, I was still interested enough in the characters and the "whys" of the mystery that I stayed up too late so that I could finish the book. :)
