Publisher's Summary

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?

Slow Start But Great First to Supernatural Series

This took me some time to get into the story is slow to boil but I was very impressed with the detail and immersion I felt by the end. The world that the main character is being drawn into feels very well developed and hints of different communities of supernatural that make an easy to build on series. I myself knit and crochet so this was a fun addition and unlike other cozies that use certain occupations as backdrop (bakery, bookstore, coffee shop) this doesn't feel like an accessory but a real part of the characters life integrating daily tasks to the story without it bogging things down. Overall this doesn't have the fast action pace of some cozies but I still found it enjoyable. There are twists and turns and fun pieces of magic mixed throughout and already some set ups for the main character struggling to straddle two worlds magic and normal. There is only the very hints of a beginning of some romantic interests but those are very, very background. The narrator did a fantastic job with the different voices and really brought out the different characters. Overall, I was surprised by the end I was already looking to find the second volume and hope it builds on what this has begun.

LOOKING FOR A NEW PARANORMAL COZY

LOOK NO FURTHER. THE VAMPIRE KNITTING CLUB SERIES IS THE ONE. THE STORYLINE HAS SOME UNIQUE TWISTS. I LOVE THE CHARACTERS ALREADY, BUT THERE IS SO MUCH POTENTIAL FOR STILL MORE. FOR THOSE OF US WHO CARE, THE BOOK IS FAMILY FRIENDLY. I CAN LISTEN TO IT WITH KIDS IN THE CAR. AND LAST, BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST, THE READER IS SUPERB.

AUDIBLE, PLEASE OFFER MORE SOON!

Entertaining surprise

The Vampire Knitting Club is an entertaining surprise. I pre judged this book because I thought the concept silly, but, I was very wrong. The mystery is well developed with engaging characters and an interesting plot. I found myself sucked in to the story and listened to it in one sitting. When I was finished, I bought the next book. Sarah Zimmerman does a very good job as narrator. She gives the characters different voices and is very good with accents. I strongly recommend this book.

A Fun Mystery that gave me the Knitting Itch

This was a great listen. Sarah Zimmerman has a delightful storytelling voice and this is the first novel by Nancy Warren I've ever listened to. I'll definitely be getting the next one!

Cute, but lacks depth. Performance keeps attn.

I finished it fast. the performance was excellent, and that kept my attention. I liked the story premise, but it was just a bit flat and underdeveloped for my taste. hence the 3 stars. maybe the sequels will provide that depth of character that I would like.
