Lace and Lies - Nancy Warren

Book source ~ Kindle Lending Library


Lucy Swift is really loving living in Oxford, running her grandma’s wool shop, and solving the occasional murder. Ok, she may not actually be loving the murders, but it sure livens things up. So to speak. So also really loves her knitting vampire friends who live under her shop. She’s even getting a little bit of magic practice in and not creating any disasters. On top of all that, a tv show is going to be filmed in her shop! It’s so exciting! Until…you guessed it. A murder happens. Disaster! And she can’t even blame her witchy powers because she wasn’t using them! She and her amateur vampire sleuths need to solve this murder and quick because her business is on the line.


Nancy Warren hits another one out of the park. I love this whole world. Cozy and quaint Oxford and it’s shops, knitting galore, vampires from all eras, and murders to solve. There’s paranormal elements (I mentioned the vampires and Lucy is a witch) and humor. Plus, Lucy is being wooed now by a really old vampire. She’s not exactly sure she knows where it’s heading, but she’s really enjoying the journey. If you’re looking for a fast easy read that has a murder to solve (no gore, I promise), vampires (also no gore), humor, and a sprinkling of romance then I can’t recommend this story (and all the others that came before it) enough.
