Publisher's Summary

Released from the magic pokey and paroled with limited power is enough to make any witch grumpy. However, if you throw in a recently resurrected cat, a lime-green Kia, and a sexy egotistical werewolf, it's enough to make a gal fly off the edge. Not to mention a mission...with no freaking directions. So here I sit in Asscrack, West Virginia, trying to figure out how to complete my mysterious mission before All Hallows Eve when I'll get turned into a mortal. The animals in the area are convinced I'm the Shifter Whisperer (whatever the hell that is) and the hotter-than- asphalt-in-August werewolf thinks I'm his mate. Now apparently, I'm slated to save a bunch of hairy freaks of nature? If they think I'm the right witch for the job, they've swallowed some bad brew.

    "Lewd, crude and laugh out loud funny!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you love the wonderful pairing of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, you will I hope enjoy this new combination of author and reader. It’s hard to find heroines who are as tough, stylish and funny as Zelda or heroes who have a bit more dimension to them than just being HOT and brooding! I will look forward to the next in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Stephanie Riggio’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not yet


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a bit unsettled by swearing, bloody fights and sex scenes then I would avoid this book. If you crave supernatural heroines with a sense of humour and don’t mind the gore that goes with it, then this is for you.

    "Fun Read"

    I enjoyed the characters and the story of Zelda. Fabio was funny and turned out who I thought he was in the end. The book was a nice light read. I would definitely recommend this. Now excuse me while I buy book 2.

    "Awesome Story and Performance!"

    When a girl needs a good laugh, all she has to do is open one of Robyn Peterman's books (or in our case, push play),and prepare for a story that will literally bring tears to your eyes and make you laugh your a** off! Robyn's paranormal series are some of the funniest stories I've listened.

    I had a blast listening to Switching Hour and Stephanie Riggio's performance was superb. She really brought the story to life, and did an amazing job delivering all the different character's snarky and sassy comments. She portrayed Zelda perfectly, and I loved her voice for Fabio the cat.

    If you listened to Robyn's other PNR series "Hot Damned," then you will definitely want to add this story to your collection. While the story is on the short side, it is perfect whispersync deal. It was well worth my time!

    "Seriously funny!"

    Caution: this story might make you pee yourself! Between the name calling and the old lady crouch smoke, I may have hurt myself laughing. Seriously, if you are looking for smoking hot sex, frustrating witches, and a roadkill sidekick, look no further!

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Thank God this was such a short book. I am amazed that I'm in the minority here; I'm one of the readers who disliked this book. First of all, I disliked the main character. She was so shallow and immature. She cursed like a middle schooler trying out cuss words for the first time. Example: "Fucking fuckity fuck fuck" Seriously? The author tried way too hard to be funny and it came off as ridiculous. The cat (the main character's familiar) spent an inordinate amount of time licking his dangly bits. The author found it necessary to include repetitive gonad licking incidents throughout the book. The entire book wasn't horrible. Something, that I couldn't put my finger on, kept me interested. I had a love/hate thing going on with the narrator. It was read by Stephanie Riggio. I enjoyed her regular speaking voice, but when she switched into other characters/talking animals, it was like fingernails on a chalkboard. She spoke in this breathy voice that was overdone.

    "Not really worth a credit"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I loved Robyn Peterman's "Hot Damned" series, but the first book in this series seems like a weak copycat (even though it was released first). I know Glenda, the main character, is kinda finding herself, but she is rather unlikable and 1 dimensional. Actually, most of the characters were pretty uninteresting, except for her cat.All the books in this series are only 4 or 5 hours long; that is why I don't think I will be spending anymore credits on them. Maybe if they were combined in an anthology I would buy it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable.


    What three words best describe Stephanie Riggio’s voice?

    Uninteresting, uninvolved, pleasant.


    Do you think Switching Hour: Magic and Mayhem Book One needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There are 3 more in the series, don't think I will bother with them


    Any additional comments?

    There are better books / series to use your credits on,

    Story
    "A humorous paranormal read..."

    A totally humorous paranormal read. I laughed and laughed while listening / reading this book. A young woman (Zelda) is tossed into the role of healer witch after her Aunt Hildie dies, whom she didn't even know. Now Zelda is surrounded by talking animal shifters of all species while she tries to discover who killed her aunt.

    This story will make you laugh until you cry. This is my first read by author, Robyn Peterman, as I have been waiting for her books to come out in audio books. This author has a HUGE sense of humor and wise cracks to boot. The narrator, Stephanie Riggio did an awesome job with this story. She used many different voices for each animal and all the voices seemed to fit each character in my opinion. The narration is flawless and very entertaining! Wtg ladies!

    "This is funny?"

    I'm returning this one even though I got it on sale. I'm surprised at all the glowing reviews! I was hoping for some chuckles since this is billed as funny, but I never really even smiled.

    Honestly this was a whole lot of crassness, bad language, and instant lust smashed into a small space. There was a clash between good and evil cute fluffy animals crammed in there as well. It was an awkward fit and never really meshed well.

    As for the humor, there's a joke about the cat grooming its private parts which is used over and over and OVER. The main character is totally shallow and materialistic, and spends a lot of time judging people and situations by their possessions. Sometimes that can work, but in this case she just seemed dislikeable instead of funny.

    That was probably my biggest problem with the book -- I can handle all sorts of crudeness and (failed) lewd jokes, but only if there's a main character worth bonding with. And that's even harder given the short length of this story. A lot of people seem to have rated this fairly well though, so take my opinions with a grain of salt. There's room for the MC to grow in later installments, but I was just sorry to be spending my listening time with her.

    No problems with the narrator at all -- the sample is a good representation of her reading so you know what you'll be getting there.

    comedy, witches, urban-fantasy, paranormal, magic, snark-fest

    Hilariously silly with an abundance of verbal humor and a gift for description! The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers, but that can't begin to prepare you for all the laughs! Great book for a bad day at work!
    Stephanie Reggio has the patter and snark down pat.
    Bought as Whispersync on the cheap.

    "Vile, insipid, childish, shallow, and sad"

    The main character is completely unlikeable. She thinks like a poorly adjusted twelve year old girl with self esteem issues. And all of the characters are one dimensional, and unrelatable. I guess if you're in the mood for something ridiculous, you might want to read it, but it isn't especially funny. So... reader or listener beware.
