Publisher's Summary

My Grandmother, Agnes Bartlett, used to own Cardinal Woolsey's knitting shop then died and left her shop to me, without informing me that she wasn't actually dead. She's a vampire and part of the world's strangest craft circle-the Vampire Knitting Club.  

As you might imagine, this means she's free to interfere in how I run the business that used to be hers. She's trying to teach me to knit, and it's not going well. She's also trying to teach me how to be a witch, since it turns out I'm from a long line of witches. Another tiny detail about my family that no one ever told me, along with the long-lost witch cousins I recently discovered. But I'm learning. I've got my family spell book, my black cat familiar, some powers that sometimes scare me, and an interesting new group of friends.   

My archaeologist parents are coming to visit and bringing me a gift I could do without. So, to recap, I run a knitting shop, and I can't knit. I'm a beginning witch who can't always control her cat, never mind her magic, and my love life is as tangled as the last sock I tried to knit. Oh, and for some reason, I keep getting involved in murder investigations. Good thing I have my vampire knitters to help sniff out clues. At least I've finally hired the perfect assistant, a real demon with the crochet hook. Or is she too perfect?

Predictable but good

Crochet and Cauldrons is book 3 of the Vampire Knitting Club series. In this book, we met Lucy’s family and saw more of a relationship forming between Lucy and Ian. The “bad guy” was predictable.

I have been binging this series and haven’t been reviewing them in between each book. Some overall observations from the series so far (I have finished through book 8.5 and am partway through book 9) are that the stories are always cute and good for a short escape. I really enjoy the characters and have a vested interest in them. Something I have noticed, though, is that there isn’t continuity between books and the books really could have benefited from a proofreader. For example, in book 1, Lucy is 27 but in book 6, she has her 26th birthday. In one of the books, Rafe is at least 600 years old, but in the next book, he is only 500 years old. Occasionally there is an incorrect name used but I always know what was meant so it doesn’t confuse me or make it so that I can’t continue. Another thing that is missing, at least to the point I am at now, is any real information about the vampires. We don’t get to know anything about their abilities, only that they are vampires who feed via a blood bank. Even with the inconsistencies, I am hooked on the series and enjoy these easy-going, clean, cozy mysteries. It is a nice palette cleanser from the smutty stuff I typically enjoy.

The narrator is the same throughout the series and she does a great job. I recommend this series.

Fun & engaging

This series combines a bit of so many things I enjoy: knitting, romance, mystery, vampires & England. Nancy Warren pulls it all together beautifully with humor and human connection. I’m almost glad I make myself wait for my new monthly credit or I’d be tempted to download all of them and then what would I look forward to?? If you’re looking for a lighthearted series with dynamic characters who start to feel like friends, I wholeheartedly recommend this one.

Family Reunion and Egyptian Curses

This is my favorite in the series so far and I continue to be impressed by how much these stories pull me in and engage me. This time we get to meet Lucy's parents who visit from their most recent archaeological dig site with cursed items in tow. It is so fascinating to gain insight into family dynamics that feel very real as Lucy continues to struggle to find help for the shop. The audience watches as Lucy is still developing not only her knitting skills but her magic and balancing a life that straddles two very different worlds. We get to meet a new handful of characters and vague wisps of romance linger in the background though continue to be very cursory to the rest of the story. There is an exciting build as the audience guesses whodunit and although not terribly surprising it does feel exciting and lovely to watch unfold. A wonderful easy listen with fantastic narration. Highly recommend for fans of supernatural cozies with a lovely setting of a knit shop in Oxford.

LUCY AND THE GANG ARE BACK

MEET THE PARENTS AND A NEW ASSISTANT AND A VERY STRONG WITCH AND A VERY NASTY DEMON. ANOTHER GREAT READ! I DO HOPE IAN HAS A LARGER ROLE IN THE NEXT ONE, BUT I DO LIKE RAFE. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THIS SERIES, BUT ENJOY A GOOD PARANORMAL COZY, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Excellent reader!

I read the novel already, but picked up this audio series when I head the reader. Fantastic at voices and accents, each character was very individual and believable.

really predictable

OK, here is my only real issue with these books, THE MAIN CHARACTER HAS NO CURIOSITY!
you knew who the bad guy was all along, but Lucy was just as clueless as a lamb. it was really frustrating. my favorite part of these books are really the side characters.
