Vampire Knitting Club: First in a Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series
Vampire Knitting Club: First in a Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series | Nancy Warren
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 500-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!

#ReadAway2024 #SeriesLove2024 This is the first in a new-to-me series. Kind of a lightweight beginning but good bedtime reading because there aren‘t a lot of different threads to follow. And the idea of a group of vampires sitting around knitting just gives me the giggles. If you‘re someone who likes to play with yarn, you might enjoy this.

TheSpineView This is on my TBR list. 6mo

Mehso-so

This was rather bland. It had a lot of fun ideas that just fizzled on the page. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, it was very blah.

I appreciate the lack of romance. That would have made the book even more cliche.

It could have done with some better editing too. There were a few bits where characters were given information and then a sentence later asked for the same information.

The series has potential and it's easy reading.

TheSpineView Well done! 9mo

Clwojick I just read another series by this author, and although there were some characters that I liked (mostly the cat and dog - lol!), I felt like it was a very mediocre cozy. Most cozies don‘t blow me away… but it was just very middle of the road. 9mo

I have been looking forward to reading the newest spinoff series from The Vampire Knitting Club by Nancy Warren. I've loved all of her books. This new series follows Lucy's friend Jennifer as she starts a knitting shop at a new location. There are some old friends and new characters. I have to admit though this one didn't quite draw me in yet as much as other books by author. It was a nice relaxing read though.

Roary47 That looks and sounds super cute! 10mo

This book has a strong paranormal element, with vampires and witches. It takes place on a charming little street in Oxford, the kind of place that sounds perfect to me. There is a real sense of history here. It is fun to see Lucy bumbling about, trying to find her place in this new world. This is the beginning of a cute, new series, and is short enough to read in a day.

BrandedKristen I love this one. Such a cute, cozy read. 2y

Super fun and entertaining #paranormalcozymystery, with a wonderful narration by #SarahZimmerman. Does it make sense? No, but that‘s not the point, is it?

Clare-Dragonfly I bailed on this pretty hard. Your review is making me think that my first assumption, that cozy mysteries are not for me, was correct! 😆 3y

I‘ve never had any interest in cozy mysteries. They just don‘t sound like my cup of tea. But a podcast I was listening to mentioned the idea of witch knitting cozies… so I had to see if there was such a thing. And I downloaded these two series starters. I guess we‘ll see if I‘m right! 😅

I was planning on spending my morning, curled up on the couch reading the tagged book. Then I opened the fridge to see every shelf was purple. A giant bottle of purple pickled turnip was knocked over and all the juice spilled from the top shelf all the way to the bottom. Every nook and cranny on the way down. 2 hours later I am finally sitting down to read my book. Happy Saturday !🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

I saw someone on here mention this series and I'm so glad I checked it out. Fun cozy mystery with a side of paranormal. I don't knit but I do love to crochet so i loved the idea of inheriting an old yarn store! Of course for Lucy that meant she also now in close quarters with the eclectic bunch of vampires from the knitting club. That turns out not to even be her biggest shock.

The book isn‘t a literary masterpiece, but it‘s enjoyable for what it is. I assume the simple writing style and story are expected characteristics of cozy mysteries. I did find the characters to be intriguing. The mystery was okay - nothing special, but not bad either. The story is about witches and vampires for those who might want a little spookiness past Halloween!

I have to admit — the idea of sitting by a fire doesn‘t sound appealing right now, because we‘re getting a lot of smoke from the fires in Washington and Oregon. Someday, I‘ll want a cup of cocoa, knitting, a good book, and a tasty treat. But not today,

I‘m a sucker for cozy mysteries, particularly if they involve knitting. I had no idea this was even a thing till a year or so ago. Add in vampires and witches, and it‘s hard to resist, even if I‘m tempted to think it‘ll be cheesy.

Lucy heads to Oxford to visit her gran, finds out her gran has died and left Lucy her yarn shop. Lucy soon realizes things are not as they seem.

I sped through the first two books of this paranormal cosy mystery series and am well into book three. Super fun.

Lucy goes to visit her grandmother in Oxford to find she has passed away and left her knitting shop to Lucy. Only Gram isn't so much dead as UNdead and was murdered. The vampire knitting club is on the case!

Available on Kindle Unlimited.

This was a quick and surprisingly charming read. The writing wasn't the best, but the story was unique. It felt to me like a bizarre reimagining of Halloweentown, if Marnie was 27 and Grandma lived in Oxford... with vampires. The rich history of the setting was neatly woven in, and let's not forget the yarn! Descriptions of yarn and hand knit sweaters abound, which warmed my heart and made it a perfect comfort read for someone like me.
