[QuoteTastic] Stitches and Witches (Vampire Knitting Club #2) by Nancy Warren

Another quote that has nothing to do, really, with the book but it just made me chuckle. I understand, Chubby Peacock, I understand.
“Isn’t he a little overweight?”

“Oh, dreadfully. Henri has the body of a peacock and the soul of a pig."



I'm having such a good time with the Vampire Knitting Club series. Aren't these covers amazing? They're so fun, too! Knitting, vampires, murder! Oh my!
The Gist: Poison tea? Who knows! An older gent died in the shop next to Lucy's store and someone had a hand in it. But who?! 
Lucy's easy to like, hard working, a little bit of a disaster but an endearing one. She's one of those characters that's just easy and you like spending time with. And the vampires--especially the super sexy Rafe?-- I just adore them and how they play her backup. They're a bit quirky and obsessed with knitting but they're quite fun.

The mystery was well done, I thought. I didn't catch on right away to who was behind the tea shop murders and I always appreciate that. 

Stitches and Witches was a cozy good time. A little witchery, a little vampire craziness, friendships and a spot of danger. Was quite fun. Though editing could use a bit of work.


When an older gentleman keels over in his scones and tea at the Elderflower Tea Shop in Oxford—a victim of poison—Lucy Swift and her band of undead amateur detectives are on the case. 

Elderflower Tea Shop is next door to Cardinal Woolsey’s, the yarn shop Lucy runs and home to the late-night Vampire Knitting Club. The tea shop owners are a pair of octogenarian spinsters and old family friends, so Lucy wants to help clear up the mystery that’s keeping their shop closed. But murder isn’t the only issue troubling the Miss Watts. A man has come between them. Miss Florence Watt is being romanced by an old flame, one Mary Watt distrusts. 

In between figuring out who, among his many enemies, might have poisoned the unpleasant Colonel Montague, Lucy’s trying to brush up on her magic spells before the Wiccan potluck dinner her witchy cousin insists she attend. 

However, she’s still settling into being a witch and since she botched a spell and blew up her kitchen, she’s taking the magic slowly. 

Her knitting endeavors aren’t much better. Between purling when she should knit and dropping so many stitches her hand-knit scarf looks like it was attacked by giant moths, there are days Lucy thinks she’ll pack it all in and move back to Boston. She might, except she’d miss her beloved undead grandmother, her new friends, one very sexy vampire and a local detective who is very much alive.
