Vampires who knit A troublemaking witch Who killed Granny — and is she really dead? 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, L Vampires who knit A troublemaking witch Who killed Granny — and is she really dead? 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 600-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?

    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 OMG.

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!

We are treated to a murder mystery, magic, vampires who knit, & more. Lucy travels to Oxford to visit her grandma only to find out she is dead. She soon has a mysterious stranger stop by, weird things happening around her, and a kitten attaching itself to her. Lucy was a good character. I liked her. Ya, she’s young and uncertain about her future, but we all where at one time in our life. She takes things in stride and does her best. I liked all the people that surround her in this new life. The vampires are just too much fun. I laughed at them; because they all knit. Vampires who have a knitting club. Just to much fun! I look forward to getting to know more about them and seeing if maybe a little romance happens. Their are possibilities. I had fun with the mystery and watching Lucy and the vampires piece it together. We find out that Lucy is a late bloomer as a witch and it was fun to see her take it all in. Theres a little drama and danger plus some magic. The Vampire Knitting Club was a delightful read and I’m going to be reading on. We get interesting characters, great surprises and twists, and a fun cozy mystery. Rated: 4 Stars

    I think this is my first cozy mystery ever! And I loved it! Lucy is funny and likable and I couldn't help but love how she handled her situation. Also, I loved the details Ms Warren included about Oxford, now I can't wait to visit it. I can't wait to see how she's learning magic and adapting to being a business owner.

    Okay, so to be up-front, I really dislike all things witchy, so I was shocked to find myself so engrossed in this mystery that I couldn't put it down. I got hooked on the beautiful Oxford setting, as well as the unique concept for a cozy mystery series. The amateur sleuth was likeable, and the witchy/paranormal aspects weren't played up too much.

Idk, maybe I'm just sensitive because when my own grandma, who lived in another country, passed suddenly 2 years ago, it was a big mess for our family emotionally and logistically. But I really wish we got the grandma-isn't-dead reveal far quicker, cuz I found the mood for the beginning of the book kinda off-putting.

    I'm giving this a 3.5 stars. While it wasn't bad, and I loved all the talked of handmade items. I found the story to be kind of blah. However I'm holding out hope that it being a series the story will get better. The character development left a lot to be desired in my opinion. I think if given the chance to know them better than the story would have been so much better. I do have plans to finish the series at a later date. I'm giving this a 3.5 stars.

    This was really cute and fun, way better than I'd expected. It was so enjoyable, I'll probably continue with the series. But there were so many obvious typos, especially at the beginning of the book! Warren either needs an editor, or to hire a better one. That's my only complaint.

(hide spoiler)] Anyway, this is my first "cozy" and it's strange to read a book about vampires, murder and sweaters and have it not be super campy. I went into it knowing it probably wasn't going to be silly, but I still wanted it to be silly. It doesn't take itself super seriously, but it still took itself a little too seriously considering knitting vampires, you know what I mean? The whole time my brain was like, "Jokes now, pls? Self-aware humor maybe?" and the book was like, "No man, purring kittens and sweet old ladies." It's not even hilariously bad! It's just cute. I think the biggest thing that stops me from giving this 3 stars is that I feel like I just read a 1/4th of a book. There's so much story that doesn't get told. (view spoiler)[And like the whole "will she sell, wont she sell" thing drags on for a really long time and you know she's not going to do it. Cut all that and give me a meatier story. (hide spoiler)] But you know, if you're just here for purring kittens and sweet old ladies then hey. This book isn't terrible.

A brand new series for Nancy Warren with a different writing aspect with the paranormal but still is a cozy mystery. A fast paced and fun loving read. Great cast of characters! Cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

Yes, it is as bonkers as it sounds, but also fun. The plots are entertaining enough, some better than others - I’m writing this having whizzed through the first 8 titles - but the attraction is really in the character of Lucy, her inability to knit (hilarious) and the recurring cast. It literally is as fluffy as the fluffiest skein of yarn and perfect when you need something easy for those days when you can’t really concentrate on much else. I listened to them while actually knitting :O)

    I liked the idea of a vampire knitting club and decided to buy a copy of this book. It sounded like a fun paranormal cozy mystery book and that's exactly what it was. It mostly was a fun read, but it failed to fully grab my attention. And it was one of those books where there were lots of little things that didn't quite work for me and they just add up.

And it was one of those books where there were lots of little things that didn't quite work for me and they just add up. The story follows Lucy, who is in her late twenties and isn't sure what to do with her life. When she is visiting her grandma in Oxford she discovers her grandam died weeks ago and they weren't able to reach her as she was on an archeological dig site with her parents. Then it turns out her grandma is actually undead now, but was almost murdered before a vampire saved her. And Lucy gets the knitting shop. Lucy has to decide what to do with her life, deal with multiple changes and new things she learns about herself and the world and solve a murder. I liked the set-up of this book, it read like a typical cozy mystery and I was curious how the paranormal would play a role. There are some likable side characters and also some less likable ones. It does very much read like a first book in the series with so many elements getting introduced that it felt like the mystery got solved a bit quickly. I had some issues with little things that didn't make sense, were too convenient or weren't explained enough to get a good feel for it. I think those are mostly because this is the first book in the series. I hope the rest of the series is better, but I am not sure if I'll continue the series. This book has all the typical elements you expect in a cozy mystery, the main character returns to a place she often visits with fond memories, has to decide whether to leave or stay, discover herself in the process and has to solve a mystery. Then it has some typical paranormal elements thrown in, involving a mysterious character who is cold to the touch, walks around at night and pops up in the shop while the door is locked. Things that don't add up and paranormal elements are the only explanation. At times it felt like all the tropes and clichés from both genres were stuffed in this book and it just felt a bit much. And then there is also a set-up for a possible love triangle. The mystery was a bit slow to get going with Lucy first having to find out her grandma is dead, then learn her grandma is actually undead and only then finds out her grandma was almost murdered before being saved by a vampire. So the mystery only starts in earnest quite late in the book and there isn't much investigating. Most of the mystery solving sort of happens to her, not because she figures it out, but because the killer comes back. I wasn't too surprised when we find out who the murderer is, but that's mostly because there are very few suspects and only a few possible motives. There also is a plot line related to break-ins and whether that's connected or not. I liked the way things got resolved at the end. Lucy was a nice enough main character, but somehow I never fully warmed up to her. She didn't really have any particular personality traits that stood out or called to me or made her likable. She seemed a bit bland at times. I liked how sometimes she could be very smart with how she handled things, but then other times she acted almost stupid. It felt very contradictory. There is little we learn about vampires and witches and the rest of the supernatural world in this book. It's very limited and because the story has to move along, I felt like sometimes we didn't get enough answers and Lucy didn't ask all the questions. Sometimes she assumed things without checking, but besides that there just was very little the vampires tell her besides the few basics. It also bothered me how her grandma forgot the last few weeks of her life, which just seemed too convenient. To summarize: while I liked the fun setup of this book and idea of a vampire knitting club, the book failed to fully pull me in. This book has all the typical elements of a cozy mystery and paranormal elements and at times it almost felt too much. Lucy was a nice enough character, but without any personality traits that made her stand out. She could be very smart at times and almost stupid at other times, which felt very contradictory. The mystery only started pretty late in the story, with very few suspects and it didn't surprise me when we discovered the murdered. The paranormal world only gets touched upon a bit and besides the basics we don't learn very much, but it works well as an introduction. While I didn't fully enjoy the book I do feel like it has a lot of potential and I think the rest of the series will be better and this one very much feels like an introductory book and I think the rest of the series will read smoother. If you enjoy paranormal cozy mysteries you might enjoy this one.

    Sapphyria

    Lucy Swift is at a point of uncertainty in her life. She knows that spending time with her grandmother in Oxford will help her sort things out. When she arrives in Oxford, she heads to the knitting shop her grandmother owns to find it closed. Unable to find her grandmother in the shop or at home, Lucy heads to one of the other shops. Inside, she learns that her grandmother died weeks prior but no one was able to get ahold of Lucy or Lucy’s mother. Upon further investigation, Lucy also discovers Lucy Swift is at a point of uncertainty in her life. She knows that spending time with her grandmother in Oxford will help her sort things out. When she arrives in Oxford, she heads to the knitting shop her grandmother owns to find it closed. Unable to find her grandmother in the shop or at home, Lucy heads to one of the other shops. Inside, she learns that her grandmother died weeks prior but no one was able to get ahold of Lucy or Lucy’s mother. Upon further investigation, Lucy also discovers that the knitting shop was bequeathed to her but there are conditions. She cannot sell the shop for at least one year. Lucy is then brought into a world she thought only possible in stories. Her grandmother is a vampire but she wasn’t turned in violence – she was turned because of violence. Now, it’s up to Lucy to figure out what happened and bring the killer to justice without revealing the secret her grandmother and friends are keeping. Of course, all while running a knitting shop during the day, dealing with a surly employee and her lowlife son, and keeping her hormones in check when she’s around a certain vampire or a certain detective. The Vampire Knitting Club is an unusual vampire novel. The premise is certainly unique and the plot is different. The characters are quirky and easy to like. The story is told solely from Lucy’s point of view but contains many secondary characters. I really enjoyed Lucy’s lowkey attitude and ability to be flexible in her life choices. Learning her grandmother is dead, that she inherited the knitting, shot, that her grandmother really isn’t dead, and vampires exist would have thrown many people into a tailspin. Lucy manages to stay calm all while freaking out inside. There were a couple inconsistencies in the book that kind of gnawed at me. One, in particular, is the missing book. The fact that it’s missing is a huge deal, dismissed as an issue later, then a big deal again, especially when others come to claim the book. It didn’t detract from the story but I felt this particular thread could have used some smoothing out. Other than that, the book was well written, fun, and I had a great time reading about a nest of knitting vampires.

    For the start of this series it was pretty well written. Lucy was expecting to see her grandmother for some support due to a break up but what she got was a sad find. Her grandmother has died but what she discovers is that her grandmother didn't die as she was told. Many things come to light and Lucy finds that what she came for is exactly what she didn't know she wanted. For the start of this series it was pretty well written.

    This has all the hallmarks of a great cozy mystery read: a cute hook, a great cast of cute neighbors, and a mystery that is interesting, but not at all thrilling. In short, it's what I love out of cozy mysteries, with some vampires thrown in. Definitely continuing this series in the future!

    The premise was brilliant - I mean, who doesn't love a vampire knitting club! This story had many threads. The pace was fast, and the characters wonderful. I'm deducting points because the book could have had better copy editing, and there are just some things that don't add up in the setup. Please, don't let that stop you from actually reading the book, because it is very entertaining. The premise was brilliant - I mean, who doesn't love a vampire knitting club!

And since it is a short book the mystery is solved quickly...but i was still wrong! There is a cat, there is a hot vamp, an interesting cop, yes things might turn interesting in this town after all for Lucy. Fun story. narrator She did a great job with all the characters. I liked her Lucy voice, it felt very, well that I would have liked Lucy in rl too

    3.5 stars Lucy travels to see her Grandmother, who owns a knitting shop, only to find she has died. Surprisingly, she has been turned into a vampire and was murdered but has no memory of what happened. Lucy then decides to stay at the shop for the time being and work out what happened to her Grandmother, what other weird things are going on in the neighbourhood, and what secrets have been kept from her by her family. It was a good story and I will probably pick up the next book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I like the concept. But there were a lot of editing errors, and mistakes that I couldn't gloss over in the beginning. The character seems super ditzy, childish, and unconfident. It did get better along the way. Nyx is one of my favorite characters. Rafe seemed like he was flipping between being a jerk and being super into Lucy. I like the concept.
