Lace and Lies * Nancy Warren

Cardinal Woolsey’s Yarn Shop has been chosen to appear on TV which is great publicity – until a murder stops the cameras…

Celebrity knitting designer Teddy Lamont is coming to Cardinal Woolsey’s knitting and yarn shop in Oxford to run a special class that will be televised.

Lucy Swift can’t wait to host the popular, flamboyant designer and boost her business, but from the first day things go wrong. When a student is found dead, the publicity Lucy was hoping for turns out to be the wrong kind.

Lucy and her band of undead amateur sleuths must figure out who the killer is before her business winds up dead.

“Love this series…This plot is full of so many suspects that challenged me to really think about whodunnit although I always become so eager and engrossed that I forget to even try to figure it out, I just hunker down and let Lucy take me for a roller-coaster ride instead. Much more fun that way!” Annette, reviewing Lace and Lies

Honestly, having a bunch of vampires living below me was like having too many older, wiser relatives living in the basement suite. They were a bunch of know-it-alls, and even though I never thought any of them would revert to savagery and drain me of blood, I was always aware that they could. Frankly, I thought they used that knowledge against me.

Welcome to your friendly neighbourhood vampire knitting club. 7th book in the series, first book I read from this author and I don’t think I’ll touch anything ever again. Is this YA? yes, it is. Is it mellow, shop-owner diatribe about how hard it is to get customers? YES, it is. Does it have any sexy vampires? No. Just knitting ones.

“I’ve heard about people like that but never really believed they were real.” Rafe looked at me a little sadly. “I’m sorry to say they exist. In both sexes.”

I’m not even sure the age group this is aimed at? Maybe grandmas? Hipsters? Men with rough hands that work on oil rigs and like to knit? (I’m not joking, it’s a line in the book). I prayed for it to end and when it finally did, it ended in a cliff-hanger to be continued in book 8. No thank you.
