The Vampire Knitting Club
by Nancy Warren
on Tour October 15 - November 16, 2018
At a crossroads between a cringe-worthy past (Todd the Toad) and an uncertain future (she's not exactly homeless, but it's close), Lucy Swift travels to Oxford to visit her grandmother. With Gran's undying love to count on and Cardinal Woolsey's, Gran's knitting shop, to keep her busy, Lucy can catch her breath and figure out what she's going to do.
Except it turns out that Gran is the undying. Or at least, the undead. But there's a death certificate. And a will, leaving the knitting shop to Lucy. And a lot of people going in and out who never use the door—including Gran, who is just as loving as ever, and prone to knitting sweaters at warp speed, late at night. What exactly is going on?
When Lucy discovers that Gran did not die peacefully in her sleep, but was murdered, she has to bring the killer to justice without tipping off the law that there's no body in the grave. Between a hot 800-year-old vampire and a dishy detective inspector, both of whom always seem to be there for her, Lucy finds her life getting more complicated than a triple cable cardigan. The only one who seems to know what's going on is her cat ... or is it ... her familiar?
First in a new series of paranormal cozy mysteries!My Review
OMG. When the first page of this book features the following line, you know things will only get better. "Todd, had stuck his salami in someone else's sandwich". I am very pleased to report that I was right. This book has everything that you could want in a cozy mystery...engaging characters, a fun storyline, and humor.
Lucy is so sweet. Instantly, I connected with her. In the wake of the death of her grandmother and an array of quirky characters, I thought she remained pretty level headed. Then, there is the man of mystery...Rafe. He really is a man of mystery and talents. This includes "knitting". Yes, he can knit. A skill that Lucy has yet to master herself.
I had such a fun time reading this book. If you aren't having fun reading a book, than, walk way from it. A nice start to this series. Which, I can't wait to read the next books in this series and find out what new mischief Lucy and Rafe find themselves in. The Vampire Knitting Club will have you in "stitches" from all the laughter you will have from reading this book!
