4 stars-- The Vampire Knitting Club (Vampire Knitting Club #1) by Nancy Warren

Oh my gosh. The Vampire Knitting Club was a blast. Light and easy and just a fun little para-romp.
The Gist: Lucy's grandmom has passed away and left Lucy her knitting shop. It turns out she can't knit, her Gran's more undead than dead, now, and that quiet little knitting shop? Well, it's come with a herd of knitting vampires and a whole host of other crazy happenings to keep her busy. First order of business...figure out who tried to kill her Gran.
I liked Lucy. She's young and a little uncertain about her future but she's just one of those people you can't help but like. S takes things in stride and does her best.

I quite enjoyed the people surrounding her new life, too. Gran and the vampires are quirky, a bit of a handful and all talented knitters. I'll enjoy getting to know them more, I think. And seeing if maybe a little romance happens at some point.

The mystery was fairly easy to figure out but I didn't mind. It was fun watching Lucy and the vampires piece things together. A little drama and danger. A little magic and excitement.

I enjoyed watching Lucy figuring out her new world, magic and slowly maybe accidentally figuring out who was behind everything.

All in all, The Vampire Knitting Club was a nice easy read. Seeing Lucy figure out her new world, discovering magic exists and starting new relationships. I'm glad I picked it up and will definitely read more from the series. It also really made me want to try knitting again but, alas, I'm like Lucy and a knitting disaster. ::snort::

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.
